SPL Analogue Mastering EQ - Software Equivalent? Dynamics Processors (HW)

SPL Analogue Mastering EQ - Software Equivalent?

I have a project that was mastered using 2 SPL Analogue EQ units, one L/R, One Ls/Rs.
I would like to be able to reproduce the same sound in software - and was wondering if it is an option in anything that anyone might know of.
LiquidMix has nothing like this in it, and I have no idea what the URS Pro Strip may call it.

If there was a working digital equivalent of the SPL that really sounds just like it, then every mastering engineer would buy the Liquid Mix, wouldn't they? So how come there isn't a stampede of mastering engineers out to buy the Liquid Mix? (Rhetorical question)

I know it is not in the LM box - this is not the question.
I just wondered if there was a digital equivalent anywhere is all.........

If you're talking about the SPL PQ, I haven't heard anything close. If there had been, I could have saved myself a lot of money last year. Those 120v rails are pretty unique.

So "no" it is then.
Fair enough.

As a pretty hard a fast rule there is no software for nearly all of the best quality mastering hardware. If it was the same everyone would use it.

Hiya

I really like the LM in mixing, so I have have 2, one in the mastering room
when I do mixing and one in the recording-mixing room. Both the comps
& eq's are good enough for individual instrument.

I think the comps can sound a little like FMR RNC but with more attitude.

But I seldom use it on groups and never on whole mixes (mastering). Just my 2 öre.
