So, DDMF did this EQ on purpose just to support, or maybe even prove his claim that Steinberg's Portico EQ is nothing but a standard digital EQ.

Curious to hear the opinions on how does it compare.

Actually I've revised my opinion at least to some extent... here's the full release text:

You'd think that with the currently available DDMF equalizers, you can reach any sonic goal you want, and to a large extent that is true. And when, some weeks ago, a plugin version of the Neve Portico 5033 appeared on the market I must admit that initially I thought there was nothing special going on. On closer inspection, though, it turned out that there was more to it than I initially thought, so it seemed only logical to try and understand what ingredients were being used. After all, Rupert Neve is quite a name in EQ design so it cannot hurt to learn something from the man. After a few weeks of hard work and analyzing, what I came up with was virtually indistinguishable from the original, so I hope you agree that it would be a shame not to publish the outcome. So, pleased to introduce to you DDMFs all new 6144 equalizer. What is different in this one is that the low- and high shelf filter are both combinations of an ordinary shelving and a peaking filter at just the right place to avoid mud or harshness (I really love raising the low shelf for creating that "massive" rock sound). The peaking filters have a special gain-Q interaction, and a bit of saturation is added, with random, time- varying parameters to simulate real electronic devices. Finally, an allpass filter adjusts the transient response a tiny bit. That's it, no black magic, but also not really just another ordinary EQ.

Did DDMF add distortion to the equalizer itself?
I was looking for a non-graphical EQ like this, but without "artifacts" like Stilwell's Vibe EQ. Seems they took the same route, or am I wrong?

No matter how many you may already have, you don't need another.....unless you're in to trepanning.

Exactly! I'm pretty sure any more would just complicate matters...

As for the EQ, unfortunately, I'm really liking it! The GUI suits me perfectly and I like the band choices; it definitely has a "sound" also. Even though I just bought the PSP Noble equalizer I may have to pick this up also. I need someone to hide my credit card from me...

O.K,as long as its o.k with DDMF? Who wants to buy me this EQ and i will transfer my copies of The DDMF IIEQ Pro EQ,LP10 Mastering EQ,The DDMf Colour EQ And the NYC Mixdown and Mastering compressor? Once again,as long as its o.k with DDMF? its not that DDMF plugins are not good,infact there fantastic.better than most payware plugins! Its just i have Fabfilter Pro-q and McDsp Compressorbank As my goto EQ&COMP! And i think this new Eq will compliment them really well!(and the fact iv got money problems at thr moment and cannot afford to buy the 6144 eq!) Regards Jay

I own the other DDMF eqs (except the "colour" one), NY compressor and limiter . I don´t have expensive plugs, and the one with "buttons" I´m using is the fantastic (IMO) Studio Q by Sir Elliot which has fixed Q and is my "go to" character/colour eq.I tried the 6144 today on a mix ("sterille" acoustic guitars with problematic room resssonances) and found it easy to get the sound you want. Matches well with the IIEQ PRO and LP10, great eqs that I use everyday.Overall, +1 flexible eq which I´m sure will use a lot.
Well done, Christian.

Will buy asap.

It does have a sound even set flat if that's the question, that's its purpose, personally I like it.
BTW I find LP10 to have some of the smoothest highs among EQs.

PS: works fine wrapped to RTAS (Mac PT8)

i've tried the demo.
it has a good sound but it softens the transients on the low frequencies.
Not indicated for mastering purposes.

Just my two cents

I wonder if it's intentional or more of a side effect of the design?

Sounds very smooth and also the response/handling of the knobs is very smooth. I'm playing also since some hours with the Waves H-EQ and DMGAudio EQick (which I get for free as EQuality owner) :D
Oh and I forget the PSP NobleQ...

Too much EQs

Did anyone compare it to the Steinberg Version soundwise?

No my demo has run out, though I might ask for an extension from Stieny, will get back if I do.

From memory though it sounds the same, I use the same test files for all eq, comps, verbs, keeps my prespective clean.

I did buy this and I'm finding it lives very well alongside my other two main EQs. Nice work!
