EQ plug-ins

Any recommendations?

Hi.
Can anybody recommend a good, free EQ plug-in. I have found quite a few but I would prefer to try something that has been recommended.

Whats wrong with the built in ntrack eq?

Other than that, try Kjerahouse (spelling?)

Willy.

There is nothing wrong with the built in eq, it works fine but I would prefer something with faders for ease of use.

there you can found a 61bands eq, a15 one and a 3band compressor for free. work nice

Different EQ plug ins do sound different. I’m very impressed with the sound of Spin Audio’s plug in. It sounds better to my ears than, e.g., Waves’. Worth a try. :)

Do you want faders b/c you don’t like parametric? You want a graphic? The kjerhaus graphic eq is great, and free!

RE: Voxengo - While I am a huge fan of their convolution programs - the impulse modeler and the plug in, which is outrageous - I didn’t really like the sound of the EQs. Purely personal thing, of course, and many others really like them.

Hi Tom. Can you give a little more info about this? I always thought that they sound the same, and that the diffrences maybe is because they add some alias sounds because no dithering or something. Have you any tip to this?
thanks

Check out Nyquist EQ.

Thanks to all for your recommendations . I will try them all and I’m sure one of them will suite my needs.

Well, I'm no math genius, but they sometimes use different methods, right? And even ones that use the same method do the calculations in slightly different ways, from what I understand. Somebody else will have to say something about all that stuff. But if you do a guitar track, for example, and run it through different EQs with roughly the same settings, you can hear lots of differences. EG, in boosting highs the SpinAudio EQ sounds a lot less harsh to me that others I have tried, and in either high pass mode to cut the low end on gutiars, or in shelf mode, it sounds clearer. It seems pretty noticable to me. I like testing them on guitar, since there's so much going on in the signal, it seems like a good test for things.

But you should take what I say with a grain of salt, 'cause I like the sound of my hardware EQs better - an old UREI 533 and two symmetrix parametrics. Not exactly state of the art. :)

Thanks your answer Tom. The SpinAudio plugin looks nice.

Sounds good too. :)
