10/10 for a clean EQ for technical and surgical usage with up to 24 (!!!) bands.
I use that clean, very versatile EQ every day on almost every channel at least as the LPF/HPF. It is my standard channel strip EQ right in the beginning before any other plugin.
Very helpful are the "solo" buttons to listen to the frequency range you're actually tweaking. Also awesome is that you can mark several bands at once and move them together in frequency and/or gain, whether you do it with the mouse or the knobs.
Thanks to the wonderful GUI, I also always use it to reduce resonance frequencies.
Want to work on MS? Easy done. Just change the whole EQ from L/R mode to M/S mode. Every band can be set separately to M, S or both, or respectively L, R or both.
The analyzer can be set to different settings (resolution) and on different signal path points: pre, post and pre&post. Very helpful.
On top of that, you can also choose between non linear phase with zero latency to different linear phase modes with different latency settings.
Although not my first choice for musical Eqing, the possibility to go up to 30kHz and work with a Baxandall bell curve can bring some nice high end shine.
For surgical and correction issues I wished you could switch every band independently to LR or MS. Let's hope that's possible in v2, although I'm not even sure if this is possible within one plugin ;)
And maybe Fabfilter starts to implement different GUI sizes in future versions.
Nevertheless: This is a must-have-workhorse-EQ for every DAW.
