At it's current stage of development, no.

Having interconnected bands dealing with masking etc is not where this EQ will go. The "M" in SlickEQ M stands for Mastering, not Mixing But having said that, there's definitely more they can do with the capture/learn functionality - check out Mastering the Mix's very powerful and useful REFERENCE plugin for example.

^^ we don't plan to change slickEQ M's conceptual focus (mastering).

What is planned (or better: already under work) is the integration for the "SmartOps" interface known from the latest Nova GE update.
This means we'll likely see very similar functionality, but including SlickEQ M's special features (stereo image processing). So all these "Reference by instance" trickery known from Nova GE will also appear in SlickEQ M. This is essentially the "masking" feature as promoted by Ozone, just presented in a different manner: Simply "match by reference by instance" (i.e. by an instance sitting on the other track) and use negative AMOUNT values. I personally don't like this whole usage of the term masking, and the idea to reduce its definition to "overlapping spectra". In my opinion, this isn't masking.

For mixing, Nova/Nova GE will likely remain the better alternative.

Awesome news @ FabienTDR and very happy to see this thread alive and kicking! I keep using SlickEQ M on a daily basis; I can't believe it's almost three years old now!

Not a bad idea at all. I'm sure Gregg has a lot of good ideas on possible improvements for the SlickEQ M. And he's part of the beta-team, right? I'm so envious!

Yes, I beta test for TDR, Klanghelm and Valhalla, in full disclosure. Hermepass is great but as I told Chris, I need something with Hz readout, not just a "random" number between 0.0 and 1.0. It's my main beef with AW plugs. I think once a lot of them are made open source some cool devs are gonna come along and put a load of different AW algos into various plugs with cool GUIs and readouts etc., and tweak the audio, will be amazing. Sorry for the OT aside!

I for one absolutely cannot wait for Slick EQ M to get the update. I've used it nearly every day since it came out, it's my main digital EQ, it's my fave plugin of all time etc. Getting the new Smart Ops features from the latest Nova update will make it incredible.

Thank you Gregg.

OT aside, I stand by your opinion on AW's lack of readouts although I must admit in a lot of cases I actually appreciate the fact that I don't really know the exact values I'm dialing and I'm just choosing by what sounds good. Same old story... And being a ME, I can be very meticulous for sure!

Back to SlickEQ M; indeed a great sounding EQ but also with a great design and concept behind it, and people supporting it with full force. Hardly any need for another EQ in my studio.

Can you shed any light on what's going on under the hood when using the Hardness meta filter?

Can anyone explain what does the match pink do? And do anyone recommend it as oppose to the match reference?

It matches your audio to a pink noise reference curve. Give it a try, I sometimes prefer the outcome to matching to a reference curve, especially on a full mix.

often works great to match pink and dial back the Range to ~40%

Yes, it has the effect of beefing up lower level frequencies and taming more pokey or resonant ones. Dial it back to allow the character of your mix to come through.

AFAIK it's just a static preset to boost or soften areas that you might call "presence" or "hardness"
