The 'General EQ with External Blend' block blends the filter coefficients of two second order filters according to the blend factor specified and performs filtering operation. The blending factor will be obtained via the control input pin

This block gives access to a wide variety of 2nd-order (biquad)filter algorithms. The blend factor(0-1) is obtained as input through the control pin. The Slew time can be entered in seconds (0-1) to slew from the initial blend factor to the target value. The available filter types are:

- Parametric
- Shelving
- General High-Pass
- General Low-Pass
- General Band-Pass
- General Band-Stop
- Butterworth Low-Pass / High-Pass
- Bessel Low-Pass / High-Pass
- Tone Control
- 1st-Order Low-Pass / High-Pass
- All-pass
- Peaking
- Notch
- Chebyshev Low-Pass / High-Pass

The slewing functionality is added for smooth transition from one blend factor to another when the blending factor is changed. The slewing takes place approximately in the time set by the user in the GUI. The slew time can be entered in the GUI slew Text box. The slew time range is limited between (0 to 1 second).
