Is that an update? Since it installs parallel, it should be seen as a product of its own.

Yes and no, I think. They are no longer selling Pro-Q 1 on their website, so according to Fabfilter I would think that it really is an update. I believe that the parallel install is a compatibility measure. It prevents us from having to update our existing projects.

'Upgrading to Pro-Q 2

Upgrading from Pro-Q version 1 to the new Pro-Q 2 is safe and easy: installing Pro-Q 2 willnot replace or delete the previous Pro-Q 1 plug-in. Both versions will co-exist and can both be used at the same time. This ensures that you can open old songs that use Pro-Q 1 without problems! Of course, FabFilter Pro-Q 2 opens all presets from Pro-Q 1 without problems. See Upgrading to Pro-Q 2 for more information.'

The price is actually £124, not £149.

Anyone have both this and Spline EQ by Photosounder, and have an opinion on whether this is better/equal/worse? Both have linear EQ capabilities and I'm curious if anyone feels that one is more transparent than the other, more useable or preferable in some way, etc.
