PSP Neon is a fully featured linear phase equalizer plug-in that offers eight bands of equalization, each of which can be assigned one of seven filter types. PSP Neon uses frequency-domain fast convolution based linear phase algorithms for the best balance between CPU efficiency and phase accuracy.
For those who want to use the excellent analog-modeled PSP Neon filters in even more CPU critical applications, you can even toggle off the linear phase mode and take advantage of PSP Neon's minimum phase error Infinite Impulse Response (IIR) mode!
PSP Neon also features one of our most user friendly interfaces ever, offering unparalleled easy of workflow. Once you experience for yourself the pristine, transparent response and intuitive design of this plug-in, we believe it will become your "go to" linear phase equalizer for mastering and other critical audio applications.
Version 2 of PSP Neon comes in three flavors:
PSP Neon HR - compatible with PSP Neon HR version 1, so your sessions will open and your presets will load. Just like its predecessor, It offers linear phase processing as well as three spectral resolution levels.
PSP Neon STD - like HR, but with standard (std) spectral resolution. This is sufficient for all but the most demanding mastering purposes (for which you can always grab HR). STD offers greatly reduced latency (by factor of ~3) and much gentler memory requirements.
PSP Neon MIX - with its minimum-phase filters (no linear-phase processing) it is very well-suited for mixing, as it introduces almost no latency (just 31 samples), while still providing all other important features such as oversampling, middle-side processing, a spectrum analyzer and the advanced Neon user interface.
Once again, PSP have raised their game, and PSP Neon and PSP Neon HR are both excellent-sounding EQ plug-ins that offer sweetness and transparency. Linear phase plug-ins are deliberately smooth and neutral in character, which makes them perfect for mastering, but they still all sound slightly different. For me, PSP's Neon HR has an 'analogue' quality that makes it shine.
