A new form of equalizer has been developed which combines minimum phase, low delay, IIR signal processing with low noise, real-time adjustment of coefficients to accurately deliver an arbitrary frequency response as entered from a graphical user interface. The use of a join-the-dots type graphical user interface combined with cubic or similar splines is a common method of entering curved lines into 2D drawing programs. The equalizer described in this paper combines a similar type of user interface with low-delay, minimum phase, IIR audio DSP. Key attributes also include real-time, nearly noiseless adjustment of the DSP coefficients in response to user input. A demonstration and all necessary information for the construction of these filters is included.
