While parametric equalization and dynamic processing have been around since the early twentieth century, and while they are both a mainstay of audio engineers, they are seldom combined into a single operation.

This provides to the user time-varying amplitude control in selected frequency bands. Audio mastering and audio reinforcement would benefit from the integration of equalization and dynamics as a single tool.
