The GEQ is real chic and cool in a way. I don't know how to say it but it's clean'n'cool. The retro version has phase distortions like an analog while the modern version actually removes them. WOrth it just for that.
The GEQ model is made for Live shows but I use it for my home recording. Absolutely incredible. 30 bands of exactivityness make this piece unique to what is available and Waves is making cool moves here with LIve gear capable software.
This piece is and incredibly good value for the money. I just need to learn how to register the new changing EQ spectrum in the visual. The draw mode is OK to draw with but not outstandingly easy. There are 3 different EQ modes with boost and they are easy to locate. Supposedly this EQ is good for comparing spectrums but I haven't got that far on it yet, im not that focused yet. Although is isn't too hard to do, I kinda checked it out and got it to work once.
