What EQ has the most punch in the low band?

Wondering what EQ people like the best in the 100hz-ish range. I think the Ibis does pretty well down there but I could imagine there being better performers out there. Any thoughts?

API5500 is very tight at 100 and 75. not as good as my Siemens W295b (60hz), but pretty damn good.

I'm still in the box but I've had great luck with the SSL E-channel EQ.

ITB if you are in Mac, try quarter DynPeq, is a beast!!!

OTB, the low section in NSEQ2 it is ok, but the best thing i try it is neumann W495, it is so thick and creamy...

Sontec MES 432 & 462: I'd describe as "tight... sounds like a rekkid".
NSEQ-F: broad & clean "bloom".
API 550m's: fullness & "vibe".
If that helps at all.

+1 for API5500: I found I tend to use it before any other EQ in low frequency domain. But since I have TFPro P9 its 40Hz baxandall shelf is unbeatable more and more.

Actually the Fairman is great on the low shelf too as is the Focusrite Blue and the Zsys digital eq. I also echo Polybonk in that a tight q on the NSEQ is pretty great esp for dub material.

The cleanest cut , or the best punch ... if you're lucky you need only one ... otherwise the combo is a challenge :-)

Although, being proportional Q (as with the 550 units) it takes a fair boost for it to tighten up much. But if it sounds right...

Elysia Museq. Especially using the resonance on the high pass filter.

Compared the museq with a GML 8200 in my studio and the Museq was much more punchier.

Seeing that you have compared the two, Can it be as surgical and transparent as the GML?

Yes i have a 8200 and had for a week from elysia the museq.

Can it be as surgical as the GML anwser is no.
The museq has only 2 bell shapes.

But can it be transparent also not, the museq has a different sound more solid but the transparency in the high frequency is better on the GML, it has a more silker sound to it.
But the high i also good on the museq only different

I think the Museq is great for house/techno etc.

Same

I find the same here. GML is unbeatable in the silky transparent department.
Phwoaaarrr.

But for Kick and Bass work or a boom in an acoustic guitar or bass, the Sonnox is firmer, more punchy. I have compared them with identical settings.

What type of Sonnox eq do you mean? Sontec?


offtopic: is the high freq of the UBK Clariphonic in the same ballpark as the GML ?
