    The Best EQ Built for Drums

    DF-Q2 is the first EQ designed by mix engineers specifically for mixing drums to bridge the gap between technicality and musicality. Drumforge has taken some of the most popular and sought-after drum EQ techniques and combined them into one plugin, allowing you to get the eq results that you need without requiring you to own different types of equalizers. Define your best drum sounds with DF-Q2.

    Unleash the Power of Parallel Processing

    Whether your drums need drastic or minimal EQ, DF-Q2 allows to you easily make those adjustments and then blend them in with the mix knob. With parallel EQ, you can shape your drum sound to exactly how you envision it. Automate the mix knob to create a more dynamic drum performance in your song.  This allows you to get of all the punch, attack, and clarity your mix needs, while preserving the original tone of your drums. 

    Drum EQ Made Musical

    This tool was created with simplicity in mind so that all of the technical aspects of eqing are removed. Channel your creativity by using your ears and not your eyes. Turn a knob to add low end PUNCH, dial your range and find the perfect ATTACK, or press a button for pristine CLARITY. DF-Q2 makes drum mixing fun again!

    Dynamic EQ

    DF-Q2’s new dynamic EQ modes gives you the ability to do powerful EQ processing techniques. Easily reduce cymbal bleed from your kick, snare, and tom tracks. Bring to life the transients of a drum performance to get more excitement without affecting the natural tone of the body. Or combine both processes to achieve transformational EQ effects to restore poor recorded performances and turn them into something you can actually use in a mix. DF-Q2’s dynamic modes give you unprecedented equalization power.
