    Does anyone know what's mean a parameter Q1 and Q2 in ParaEQ ?
    Values are from 0.5 - 16, but what's that mean ?

    Paramteres of ParaEQ according manual:

    Freq1 20Hz–20kHz - Adjusts center frequency of EQ1.
    Q1-Adjusts EQ1 Q - Values are: 0.5, 1, 2, 4, 8, 16
    Gain1 1 -12 to 12

    Freq2 20Hz–20kHz
    Q2-Adjusts EQ2 Q - Values are: 0.5, 1, 2, 4, 8, 16
    Gain1 1 -12 to 12

    Thanks in advanced!

    ...Three years just flew by.

    "...Q is the ratio of center frequency to bandwidth, and if the center frequency is fixed, then bandwidth is inversely proportional to Q - meaning that as you raise the Q, you narrow the bandwidth. Q is by far the most useful tool in parametric EQ. It allows you to attenuate or boost a very narrow or wide range of frequencies within each EQ band."

    Thanks a lot for your effort to answer my question :)
    I was playing with ParametricEQ and it's really a excellent tool for creating good sounding guitar tone :)
    Thanks again :)
