SSL G Channel EQ: Nebula vs Waves vs Duende
I've been demoing the SSL and Waves, and thought to shoot them out against Alex B's Modern Logic EQ Nebula library.
"Analog" mode is engaged on the Waves, while I used harmonic distortion with only one Nebula band - the rest were distortion free.
All bands but the "LF" section and low pass filter were used. I copied the "Acc Gtr" preset from the Waves - the Waves presets are very useful.
I kept the in/out gain set flat on all examples, but they're not exactly volume matched. I tried volume matching them with a trim plug, but the dynamic response of each EQ is fairly different as well, so I just left them alone.
Files are 320 kbps mp3s - didn't wanna mess with big .wavs. The differences are still evident.
Anyway... Which do you like best, and why?
I'll reveal and share my opinions later.
