Technologies:


The EQ transfer function derives from analog prototype and has been digitized using the Bilinear Transform.
For more precision, Processing functions use double variables.

XTrack EQ32 has been created with the VST3 steinberg SDK.
Vst2Wrapper class has been used to convert the VST3 plugin (XTrack_EQ32.vst3) to the VST plugins (XTrack_EQ32_Mono.dll, XTrack_EQ32_Stereo.dll, XTrack_EQ32_X3.dll, XTrack_EQ32_Quatro.dll and XTrack_EQ32_X8.dll).

The graphic part (XTrack_EQ32.vstui) has been realized with QT. QT is an across-platform application and UI framework.
