This is an incredible value! One might think 40 bands of EQ verges on overkill, but one would think wrong. I have only owned this plugin for a few weeks, but it has become an essential part of my DAW. For example, I like to mix down kick drum and bass together using complementary boost/reduce EQing. The Boardstation gives me plenty of sonic territory to play with. I also find this plugin is great for raising the volume of a VST instrument in a mix. Whereas I used to use limiters, compressors, or saturation plugins, the Boardstation brings out the instrument with a few small adjustments to selected bands.
By the way, the product support is equally incredible.Read Review
