Flyingjay has set the Softube to sound good.
Copied the values to the UAD Massive Passive and/or tried to match the best he could.
So what we know now: The settings on both emulations of the Massive Passive don´t match.
Yep, just started messing with these and Ur right. They don't match and like I said before, the source has a lot to do with it. This EQ sounds nice though and does a trick I always liked to do with the hardware. Any guitars recorded with a POD always have this really hashy top that I would fix by cranking the LPF as high as it'll go (6K) and then giving it the top I want. The MP has always done this better than any other EQ I've ever tried and the NI version does this very well. Having a native more cpu friendly version would make this EQ worth my while but they ( so far ) don't sound the same to me. I'll report back later, gonna play some more
