FocusEQ is a Max for Live (M4L) device that allows the user to make snappy broad-stroke EQ decisions. This workflow enables quick tone-shaping of individual tracks. First, adjust the Low-pass Filter (LPF) and High-pass Filter (HPF) to the targeted audio range. This can help highlight the dominant information for a given instrument voicing while also removing some "mud" and noise, and making more space in your mix for other tracks. Second, adjust the low/mid/high frequency dials to tune the shelfing and bell EQ bands, similar to what you would find on a guitar amp or compact mixing console. The crucial difference is that the cutoff/center frequency for these bands is relative to the LPF/HPF. This allows the user to highlight more relevant information for a given instrument voicing than they could with a simple fixed 3-band EQ. This was inspired by a similar product available commercially. My motivations behind making this was a) to have a M4L version that could be conveniently accessed directly from the Ableton device rack, and b) as a DSP learning exercise for myself. I am sharing it on this platform because I think other people might be interested in using this too as a convenient workflow tool. It will be listed as pay-what-you-want. I have no intentions to get into the commercial software game, especially as this is a "clone" of an existing product. But if you find it useful, I certainly appreciate any support!
