The project history
EQ10Q started in 2010 with the goal of bringing a powerful equalizer with a nice interface to the open source audio ecosystem. The idea was born when the LV2 standard had been released and a lot of DAW software’s started to implement support for it. After almost two years of eq10q life, the version two started to release some betas. The version two is a completely re-write of the previous version adding more structured coding style, better performance, an improved GUI and different versions of the equalizers (mono, stereo and band counts). One year later, the equalizer has been considered mature enough and the efforts became to focus in adding new plugins to the package.
