I currently own FF Pro-Q, which of course is a great plugin. Is there any obvious reason to also buy (for $10, mind you!) SlickEQ M as well?

Seems like a steal either way, but I've actually been thinning the herd for some time now, and if for example Pro-Q does all I need, I'll let this one go with no regrets.

For 10$ is totally worth it. For me ProQ has infinite options, but Slickeq M has the ones that I really need.

I would say its the perfect match; one more surgical and clean the other more musical, broad with a slight nuance of non - linearities, if needed.

It's not left my master bus since I bought it. It's as close to perfect a mastering EQ as I'd want. 6 bands plus a tilt and low/high pass, smooth curves, automatic gain compensation, mid/side, panning and stereo width adjustment per band, optional saturation for lows and highs, automatic deresonate and frequency matching of external references, various quality modes, all on a clear and very well designed interface that makes using it a breeze.

You cannot go wrong buying anything from Tokyo Dawn Records.

Yes. ProQ3 is all over tracks and busses for me, but Slick EQ M is locked onto the mixbus (without any ProQ3 to be found). I paid quite a bit more than $10 for it and have never regretted it.

You wont regret it. Still, one the very best Mastering EQ's around.

"optional saturation for lows and highs" - this is a killer as they sound freaking good too!
So yes, yes, yes.

Really god. Big leap up from the normal SlickEQ. Rather a different plugin. So cheap for 10€.

wouldn't say leap up, the normal Slick EQ has more saturation options and a different workflow. I love it as a character compressor and i don't see Slick EQ M replacing the VOS Slick EQ.
