Default Fabfilter Pro EQ-2

What do you guys think about this....?


I am looking for a top shelf, transparent EQ, a go to EQ that will satisfy all of my Equalizing needs......

Seriously - Top shelf and transparent, musical if you will. I am not looking for color....what do you guys think about it?

My ears don't really go for the Avid Channel Strip's EQ, I do like the Metric Halo channel strip EQ. I like the Cambridge EQ from UA, but looking for something native.....and maybe for lack of a better word, Top shelf? idk

Yes and I plan to demo, just haven't had the chance.....

FabFilter Pro-Q 2 is an excellent static EQ - very transparent with a nice selection of filters and slopes. Low CPU usage.

DMGAudio Equilibrium offers similar audio quality and transparency.

If you're looking for something in the "dynamic" category, I highly recommend HOFA IQ-EQ - this certainly qualifies as "top shelf"!

Pro Q 2 sounds great. Resizable GUI, EQ matching, 96db slope etc. The spectrum grab feature is really handy.

Default Re: Fabfilter Pro EQ-2

I'm loving this thing! I've used it on dobro tracks, fiddle tracks, bass tracks, snare tracks, banjo tracks, acoustic guitar tracks....
There's, for lack of a better term, a "musicality" about it that I don't seem to get with other EQs (and I have a LOT of other EQs!)
QUITE glad to have this in my arsenal.

Since I'm an instructor and make recommendations, I got the faculty discount. So it was indeed $99.99. Worth every cent, too.
