The Q3 features four easy to use controls: top-end boost, mid-range cut, low frequency bass boost and gain make-up to offset the signal loss that occurs when using passive equalization. Each of the three EQ bands employs a 12 position switch with a different preset curve at each position. These are carefully crafted to introduce subtle accents, huge hype and warm sounding cuts that will flatter and enthral. Each EQ setting is augmented with a miniature toggle switch that enables you to attenuate the curve for more subtle effects to deliver a total of over 10,000 combinations of tonal bliss.

"This is a really fun, fast and very straightforward EQ to use, and it's super-easy to call up some very cool sounds with it. While the manual gives you the lowdown on what all the various preset EQ curves are, most people are going to forget about trying to memorize them all, give in to the interface's charms, and just click the knobs and combine the various presets on each band until they hear something they like - and that's exactly what they should do."
"This makes coil EQ affordable and quick to use; sounds gorgeous."
"When was the last time you opened up a PDF to use an EQ? I don't mean that to be negative; this thing just behaves like no EQ I have ever used, which is cool. After putting some audio though it and quickly turning the knobs around, I had to know what was going on with this thing."
"Radial must have spent a lot of time researching and testing the presets. It took me about 10 seconds to land on something that worked perfectly. The Q3 is a useful, refreshing and simple tool. And it's fun."
