I don't like using my eyes for tone shaping and place instruments in the mix. when it comes to tone shaping and make mixing decision, this is my go-to plugin ! (for surgical purpose, I still use IIEQ pro).
This plugin is not as popular as other sonimus, because when sonimus released it, the gui was awfull... but they correct it, and it is now worth the price.
This EQ makes the bulk of the work in my mixes :
- 4 bands, shape from precise narrow band to large musical band (it is a mix between brown and black ssl units).
- Nice low-cut and high-cut.
- low CPU usage when the drive is at 0%, a bit more with the drive on, which sound very nice by the way !
