Best surgical RTAS compatible EQ...

I was all intent on going for the Algorithmix Red until I discovered that it wont work under RTAS.

Any alternative suggestions for a mastering quality EQ? I would prefer less colour and more precision / transparency.

Cheers guys,

For cutting?
Probably going to be the Sonnox (ex Sony) Oxford eq.

I prefer to use the Massenburg EQ but it is TDM only.
MsDSP Filterbank is nice as well- I use that on every mix project- it is a clean sound.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Is the PSP Neon comparable to the Sonnox? (just discovered that it's RTAS capable).

Just to let you know where I am at: I have been using the Waves stuff for a year or so. I find the Ren EQ suitable sometimes. I much prefer it to the Linn EQ. I realise that the REN is a sweetener (and, as such, not always appropriate) but the Linn just doesn't seem to do anything for me. It doesn't seem to be surgical enough as a transparent EQ and neither does it colour.

Neon is awesome - really awesome - but I find that it does impart a slight colour to the sound. It's a colour that I like - it might work for you as it sounds like you're sort of looking for that. Give it a demo!

Does the Sonnox have a narrow 'Q'?

It has an adjustable Q from broad to narrow.

Went to 15 in the Sony days.
Suitable most of the times but not as sharp as a notch which you might want ocasionally.

the Roger Nichols Uniqu-elizer (formerly Elemental Audio Eqium, I think) - it has a pretty narrow Q if you need it.

Available in an LE version for only $69 if you don't need unlimited bands. (7 max in LE)

It's nicely transparent, IMHO.
