SSL EQ 4000E black x-rack vs Waves plug

First round for vocals and EQ only.

All the A's are one and all B's are the other. Different settings pushing the EQs more and more (last has 15 db's at 150 hz so there may be some pops). I matched everything as best as I could. Maybe I ****ed up in some setting.

Waves black 4000 vs Real SSL black EQ. Which one is the real deal?


1A VX TEST EQ MP3 - vx test EQ 1A.mp3 - Minus
1B VX TEST EQ MP3 - vx test EQ 1B.mp3 - Minus

2A VX TEST EQ MP3 - vx test EQ 2A.mp3 - Minus
2B VX TEST EQ MP3 - vx test EQ 2B.mp3 - Minus

3A VX TEST EQ MP3 - vx test EQ 3A.mp3 - Minus
3B VX TEST EQ MP3 - vx test EQ 3B.mp3 - Minus

Wav's:
vx test eq - Minus

Hi,
taking a guess, I would say for bass, drums and guitars, all A is the hardware EQ, all B is the plugins.

The vocal downloads don´t work for me unfortunately.

Results pleeeeze

Quite different results from other polls I posted online.

A is Waves. B is SSL. I pushed them hard to see if the differences were more obvious.

I guess I deleted the vocals from my folder, sorry. I'll see if I have them on my DAW computer.
