When you're looking at a multi-band equalizer, it is first important to understand that audio processing is an anisotropic, and not isotropic, operation, meaning that the process is applied in a different manner depending on the direction a signal moves through the filter. iZotope's Neutron EQ module was designed to be an isotropic, or same-direction, filter, meaning that it operates in the same manner regardless of the direction a signal moves through it. So, for example, a band that is narrow near the upper frequency of a guitar signal will behave the same, regardless of whether that signal is moving toward or away from the speaker. 827ec27edc
