Then I EQ'd the master channel with Q10 and Flux Epure version 1. Their website doesn't work so I couldnt get their version 2.
There's also some 2bus compression and limiting.
I used 10 bands of narrow cutting. Epure Q was 100 and Q10 Q was about 52. I tried to match the Q value by ear. Q10 seems to be able to make a lot narrower cuts.
I don't have fresh ears now, but I think Epure might be a bit more smoother/liquidy/clear sounding. But the difference is so small that I doubt if anyone would notice?
There's a noEQ version too for comparison.
Very impressed with the Q10 here
The sound of digital equ's are never the same.
On my monitors it is so evident.
Eq ing therfore is difficult because of the choices, and then experience is needed to decide which eq plug in to use for different scenarios to iron out deficiancies.
When I use Sonnox eq there my tracks seem to have the Sonnox characteristics and there is no way my wave arts track plug 4 will ever sound the same.
On cheap monitors its hard to tell the difference as the sound is colourd by the monitors on both versions.
The reason why the Wiess seems to be so good, IMHO is that its characterisitcs are aesthetically of a high quality and very proffesional sounding.
