I have my console EQs and a 2 channel Orban that I should sell because I just don't use it that much.

I have a bunch of modified graphics and some para EQ's I built. One graphic is an older DOD that has a whopping + - 30db of adjustment, a super EQ.

Mostly I use the EQ's in my analog console, I don't have a need for the outboards unless I get a turkey track to fix.

I currently only have 3 channels which I use on EVERY mix and hoping to expand that!

I'm of the mind set once I have an EQ for every track in a standard mix (which for me is about 30 odd some) that's enough. I'll probably do some shifting around for tonal reasons but yeah!

oh that's just due to increasing population. I'm on an outboard EQ hunt, hoping to get to half a Trev in a year.

When band tracking, having all of those sends for cue mixes and all of the phase switches so accessible is nice.

8 channels in all. Packs a punch and still fast to recall. I've heard others I've liked but so far I feel like I can do it with what's already here. Some Neve's would be nice I'm sure.

3x Pultec (1x EQP1a, 2x EQH2)
2x Sontec 250C
2x API 550A
1x Daking
