Your favourite EQ plugin for HPF and LPF

Hydratone hands down....too bad its so dang cpu heavy! Character and warmth.

Then the complete opposite for HPF and LPF is the old Focusrite D2 6 band....just roll deep from either end, and cpu usage is NO issue there.

Came here to say this. Loved this EQ so much I picked up the De-esser and Compressor from them as well. Great plugs.

Satson does have a nice filter, except I'm not sure you can use it without some other processing going on. But that HPF just sounds good.

And surprised at all the early Cambridge +1s. Lot of slopes, but all of them add a layer of color, that Cambridge tone to the sound. It's not a transparent EQ.

DDMF IIEQPro has Butterworths (10 slopes, 6-60dB/octave) as well as a standard 12 and 24 filters with resonance. Also a number of options for shelving, bandpass, and "analog" and digital curves. Great eq, and surprisingly affordable.

I also like the options on the Waves H-EQ, but the Butterworths on the DDMF are my go-to.

I don't know,I'm just not quite cool[rich?] enough,to own any Sonnox.or UAD,and I'm starting to think my Nomad Factory"PulseTech"Pultec,is just adding the harshies[though I suspect it could be"user error"even after I dwnlded the Waves Puig Tec manuals,as Nomad only has 1950's genuine brochures].

Yep,it's my nice easy to use Waves Q10,or Sonars Pro Channel Quad EQ,it's just "always there",so that is what gets used[or not!]

What's the current best Free/Donation EQ's?,and 32bit is fine too,but I know,I should know already,but alas NFI?

Thanks for the free/donation plug info "stinkyfingers" & "Henchman".

What about the "freebie" Sonimus Satson,that came with the #183 issue of CM[our latest issue]? I like it a lot,but I wonder how dumbed down it is compared to the paid version?

Actually it seems far more useful,than Sonars "console emulation",that I for one,cannot hear anything happening there.

Studio EQ in Nuendo. It can go from a smooth cut to a resonant cut. How could you want more?

I have always said that the Cubase HPF is one of those most sterile cuts I've heard. It's like just closing a door and everything goes dark.

Nothing has changed since peeder mentioned it in this thread 21st April 2007 - Flux Epure is the one...

But the again, if it's just about removing some low end rumble I'll use whatever happens to be closest.

It does exactly what a digital filter is suposed to do. If I wan't something analog sounding, I use something analog. But anyway I don't think that it's considerably sharper than any filter.

All digital filters do not sound (or are not built) the same. They're all fine to me in the midst of a busy mix, but when you get into soloing filter sweeps or really tweaking a HH, it's worthwhile to audition all the digital filters in your arsenal. They all 'haze' the midrange slightly in their own way, have their own built in compromises.

Not always. At least in a noticeable way. It all depends on the kind of filter, slope depth (order), Q and phase shifting around the cutoff frequency.
