Good review. As usual your production quality and your tracks are pure awesomeness! The only critique I can give is that when you compare the full track without Ceil, you actually also bypass the reverb for the lead vocal.. and then it's enabled when Ceil is enabled as well. This makes the comparison quite a bit more tricky for the uninitiated listener. This is not a huge problem as the individual tracks you go through shows the potential of Ceil already very well.

Cheers!

Bumping this so no ones missies out.

You will find the eq tone on this and all AA plugins sound nothing like you may be used too unless of course you use hardware eqs!

Free until Feb 14th 2019

The description on their website says the EQ section is "incisive" but it only consists of two shelves?

One way to look at it for boosting/cutting the mid range, select the high and low frequencies cut them together to get more midrange tone or vice/versa.

Well 2 high and low cut filters plus 2 shelves that have fixed frequencies to select because they're plugins actually use samples not algorithms and they're actually incredible.
