Get The HoRNet DynEq Dynamic Equalizer Plugin For FREE


HoRNet Plugins offers the HoRNet DynEq (€10.99 value) dynamic equalizer plugin for free for a limited time, but the offer expires in ten hours.

I’m a fan of HoRNet Plugins, but I honestly wish their freebie deals lasted a bit longer. It’s hard to publish an article on time and share it with all of our readers when the offer lasts for only 24 hours. Still, something is better than nothing.

The developer is currently offering the HoRNet DynEq plugin for free, but there are only ten hours left to take advantage of the deal. However, if you claim your free license before the offer expires, it will remain permanently in your user account.

HoRNet DynEq typically costs €10.99 and is available in multiple plugin formats for Windows and macOS. It’s a simple but capable dynamic equalizer. If you need a good dynamic EQ but don’t want to use a more advanced plugin like TDR Nova, this one’s for you.

Like all other dynamic EQs, HoRNet DynEq can apply the equalization curve proportionally to the intensity of the input signal. It is only active when the signal exceeds a set threshold, making it ideal for addressing issues like specific resonances without affecting the entire frequency range.

As mentioned, the user interface is simple, but it still lets you apply precise dynamic EQ processing to your audio.

The plugin features a single parametric band with standard controls for frequency, gain, and Q. This allows precise targeting of specific resonances or enhancing certain frequencies. For more complex needs, multiple instances of DynEq can be used in sequence.

Thanks to its relatively low CPU hit, I could load more than ten instances on a single audio channel without noticing a substantial performance drop in my DAW.

In addition to the EQ band, HoRNet DynEq offers a pair of handy automation features.

The Auto Speed feature syncs the envelope detector’s attack and release times to the host tempo, specifically to a 1/4 note, ensuring optimal speed settings quickly.

Similarly, the Auto Threshold feature dynamically adjusts the threshold based on the input signal and targeted frequency, ensuring consistent processing regardless of input gain changes.

So, if you’re looking for a simple and transparent dynamic EQ, check out HoRNet DynEq while it’s free.

The developer’s website seems to be getting a lot of traffic, so there’s a buffer system in place to reduce the server load. You might need to wait a few minutes before accessing the HoRNet Plugins website.

HoRNet DynEq is available for Windows and macOS in VST3, AU, and AAX plugin formats.

    I’ve been trying to get this since yesterday afternoon. I am in a waiting line at three points during checkout, and then it goes to a 504 gateway timeout error. Hopefully Hornet considers extending this one.

  2. I’m hitting the hay soon.

    Y’all can tell me tomorrow what an awesome freebie I missed, ’cause their server can’t handle traffic. 🤪

  3. I managed to order the plugin for free, and I received a confirmation mail from Hornet.
    But I am unable to download the plugin because of the high server traffic. I will try again in a few days.
    Thanks to BPB and Hornet for this freebie!

    • Lucky you! :) I’m in the Waiting room for hours:) Managed to open My Account page, entered the password but not able to proceed…

    BPB, please don’t advertise any freebies anymore of this company until they resolve their website problems. This is very frustrating.

    • Tomislav Zlatic


      Hey, I’m sorry you missed it like many others did. I will consider not featuring these freebies because it only seems to result in many unhappy BPB readers.

      • Yeah, I posted a couple of times about their 24 hours giveaways in the past but lately I’ve stopped. I even unsubscribed from their mailing list because it seems that they use them only as an excuse to spam you with a bunch of sales emails in the following days. Finally, the plugins they offer are a kind of hit and miss, anyway.

        • Tomislav Zlatic


          Hey Alex, I’m sorry to hear that. I know that many users like their plugins, but these 24-hour deals are always tough to cover and share on time without ending up with many unhappy readers. We have a global audience across all different timezones, so a percentage of readers are always left out during a 24-hour only freebie. And the server issues only make things worse. But then again, some readers still benefit if we share the news on BPB, so I’m still considering what to do in the future.

          • I had problems downloading the DynEQ too with the laggy server. Hopefully they get their server fixed and change the freebie offer time limit considering the timezone thing but anyway I too think you should keep sharing news from their deals and freebies, since they are helpful to many and they make good plugins end of the day.

  5. Ive been a tennis ball between serious free vst-addiction and seriously bad server for several hours, made it to adding the plug into cart, site got stuck after I proceeded to log in, got into 504 gateway time-out disco and finally after all the wait the offer is over. I really like Hornet Plugins, theyre useful low cpu tools and gotta show love to smaller plugin creators but they really need new server or longer deals. I mean you cant complain about something thats offered for free, but kinda let down to wait for just to buy the plug. Probably its not their fault either, just venting my vst-addiction fumes.

    Those who got the freebie comment your thoughts about it, Ill probably buy it anyway if its good.

  6. Snap! I missed it, but not from lack of trying. Never got thru due to the “busy signals” and page timeouts

  7. M’yeah, it’s happened to me twice now, I get the waiting in line page and then nothing, for hours, and then when the page loads… Yeah. Oh well, it’s more like a lottery than anything else in a way. I’ll be fine, I just wouldn’t want possible buyers to be frustrated against what is I believe a one-man company.

  8. Well, that’s one less plugin outfit I’ll bother dealing with in future. Lol.
    Let them play their “high server traffic” fomo marketing games on some other mug.

  9. 504 Gateway – all day long. Had everything in the cart but kept showing bad gateway. Tried different browsers but no luck.

  10. This promotion was not a good one for Hornet.
    Although this a generous freebie, they missed the mark with the awful distribution!

    • Thank you Bob. Not sure why they didn’t do that in the first place, but got a copy now having wasted a load of time last night.

    • Thanks for that Bob.

      Like others I was stuck in server hell trying to get this. I love the company and the plugins but they really aren’t doing themselves any favours with these 24 hour roulette spins.

    Tomislav, please keep posting whichever info about freebies you can find :) Yesterday I clicked on the link provided in this topic. A new browser tab opened and I waited around 40 minutes. Then I added the plugin to cart and waited around 30 minutes. I got it. No problems. One browser, one tab and patience.

  12. Hi Tomislav, thank you for your posts about deals and freebies. I am also a fan of HorNet plugins, Saverio has been consistently make very good deals & giveaways which are i believe very beneficial to home musician/engineer limited by budget like me. Let’s just think about how he manage to keep the server alive while doing such great discounts & giveaways with those useful plugins.
