PFM::Project 11 Course

Learn how to:

  • Build an 8-band Stereo/MidSide/DualMono Parametric EQ.
  • Build Level meters showing Instantaneous and Averaged RMS
  • Build a Decaying Spectrum Analyzer
  • Build a fully-interactive GUI to control each EQ band.
  • Save and Load the plugin state

PFM::Project11 teaches you how to build a plugin similar to Logic Pro X's ChannelEQ, but with some extra bells and whistles!


Completing PFM::SimpleEQ or PFM::SimpleMultibandComp will prepare you for this project.

You will be challenged by this course!

I highly recommend completing PFM::Project 10 before tackling this course. 

If you want to deeply learn C++, how to use GIT correctly, and JUCE Framework basics, I have the following resources:


PFM::Project 11 is available in 3 versions:

  • Instructions Only. 44 Steps. Tackle the project at your own speed, using the same instructions set that comes with the mentored version. For those who want no assistance.
  • Instructions + Slack Access for asking basic questions (no code reviews or guidance). Tackle the project at your own speed, using the same instructions set the mentored version receives. For the developer who has simple questions but doesn't want or need any help getting everything working.
  • Instructions + Slack Access + 30 Days of Code Reviews & Guidance. For the developer who wants to get through the project as fast as possible and get as much help as they need. The mentored version is explained below.

It is recommended that you already know some C++ and how to use GIT to manage the project's source code, but not required. 

You will learn proper GIT etiquette during this course, if you do not already know it.

If you want to deeply learn C++, how to use GIT correctly, and JUCE Framework basics, I have the following resources:


Includes Chapters 6 and 7 from PFM::C++ Language Fundamentals to get you up to speed with JUCE and Multithreaded programming.
