MASTER EQ 432 (challenge???)

Watching a comparison from Streaky...
The official Promo vid from this Master EQ...

And listenning to the comparisons from the demo's on the site emselfs...

I'm no mastering engineer, but i could try and replicate what i hear...

So I downloaded the unprocessed and processed file ran it in my daw

and tried to recreate the same eq settings with the unprocessed loop with the 432 on it. But with no luck i just can't seem to nail it.
what i hear in the processed loop.

the processed loop sound is more clear has some nice highs more air around the 8k and the low doesn't sound as Boomy the kick also has more character around the 125hz and the snare really pops out between 2 and 4k

Or is there some more post processing in the processed file?

Can someone who also owns the plugin help me out???
and maybe post a screenshot of the preset or explain how they achieved the same sound.
I've added a little zip with both files so u can do the same...

Thnx in advance.

This was the closest I could get but i'm missing something there...

Also mine is a bit louder... than the processed version i feel a bit more mono in mine as the processed bit sounds a bit more stereo/open???
maybe mid side processing???

Any thought?
thnx in advance.

(oh btw my monitoring system are genelecs 8020's)

If you intend to replicate the sound of the Hardware Sontec MES 432 with that plugin here, you just won't be able to...

Nope .... Real 400 series Sontecs are just that good ...

That's why they cost $13,000

The problem is that the plug-in doesn't sound like the Sontec.

Also there are many different variants of the Sontec that sound slightly different.
