Nah, that science quip doesnt hold up, and anyway I have not seen that variatiin in the few tests Ive done, so a non issue for me.

Yeah lol, who the f needs a smart time saver tool that’s indecisive. I have my brains to slow me down.
I’m maintaining that a 3-sec snapshot is a poor implementation of “smart eqing”.
I don’t EQ a track manually if i listen 3 seconds of it.

Even when i do TEOTE or Gullfoss or Soothe i listen to the whole section to tweak it.

Besides, if you have a half-decent source the amount of EQing it does is way too invasive. Way too many notch boosts over 1k. Not one source i tried smart EQing made it sound better.
When I EQ manually its much more sparsely and broad 90% of the time

You can have 2 smart bands, adjust their bandwidth, and set their influence to as small as you like. You could use it as a smart eq below 1khz, one band dynamic to some extent, another not dynamic, and have normal eq bands above 1khz. Its pretty flexible.

You cant decrease what Soothe calls “sharpness”
(What i assume is FFT resolution) to get broader strokes
