Both are right: from Germany, but living in Amsterdam.

Don't know if that smilie makes sense in this context, but it sure looks cool.

Man that's a horrible joke.

Can you go further in depth about the "cramping at Nyquist"? Does the 6144 do that or does it oversample to avoid this?

To me it (nearly) doesn't matter how close it is to the Steinberg version. I don't know it.
What matters is, that I installed the demo and within one minute I tweaked my drum bus with it, which I fought with since months. Now it sounds right.
Absolutely love it!!
Next Month it'll be mine!

Did anyone tried this one with the wrapper?
I had the chance to play with DDMF IIEQ pro on a friend's system
and I liked it, it got me interested in this one but the wrapper concerns me

I took some time to compare the DDMF 6144 to the demo of Steinberg Portico 5033 on some of my tracks – tested through an RME UFX with some really good headphones.

With same settings, I heard a minimal (!) difference. I would not say difference in quality, but difference in character.
To my ears the difference is so minimal, it could also be subjective.

Well, yeah … at $470 difference in $$$ to the Steinberg plug the DDMF is a no-brainer to me. heh

Good work, Christian, and thank you!

Is this an EQ you could use on most tracks?

I'm looking for an easy EQ that's high quality but light on the CPU that I could use on most tracks. I have been using waves ssl channel, but I'm interested in a change-up,

Fabfilter's Pro-Q is easy and good quality, but I also like this one...

I use them both depending on what I'm want

Yup. You can use it on any track for sweetening or surgical.heh

Do I need another Eq?

It sounds so good boosting bass. I have to say I have Sonalksis already and I can almost get it to sound the same, but not quite! Im thinking about it, especially for the price. For me its set and forget, I just notch up the LF boost to 2 dB or so and Its perfect.

Really nice plugin. I use this a lot now and you can use it on everything.

What I miss tho, is a lowpass filter for filtering away unneeded low end.
That would be an awsome update Christian

Well, it already has a static lowcut filter at about 25 Hz or so...

thanks for the nice info. i was wondering if you could elaborate on what this means for the end user. does the eq do some rounding of transients as soon as it in inserted?

thanks again

My term "low end" was not corect and I was to unprecise overall. I actually don't understand why I wrote what I wrote lol.

What I mean is a highpass filter like for instance the Waves VEQ4 has. With a few selectable frequencies (up to 300 hz or so, wouldn't mind even higher) and something around 18db - 24db/oct slope.

I think it does and that is partly why I like it. It's a very creamy and smooth EQ.

Just thought about it again and I imagine that you want to keep the plugin as it is because it is supposed to be a virtual 5033.

So my idea is a "6144 XL" which adds a highpass and maybe even a lowpass, comparable to the Neve 1073 / Waves VEQ4. The 6144 XL would surely be my ultimate go to EQ then

I wouldn't even mind an upgrade fee for existing 6144 customers.

any free alternative?

Kinda

No 'free' portico emulation (come on,surely DDMF 6144 is cheap enough?) but the following are free and of a comparable high standard and also modeled on hardware.

1 - Sonimus SonEQ
2 - Elysia Niveau Filter
3 - SPL Freeranger
4 - Nasty CS


ps.Don't forget to try the new and free Farfisa emulation by Martinic 'Combo Model F' and also take a look at the SKnote 'GTS-39' Gates compressor emulation at $29.

Yeah, that might be an idea, to have a button that enlarges the interface with a few more controls. So the original layout would still be kept, but those who want more can get it. Will think about it!

I actually prefered the light coloured version. Is it still possible to have it?

Great My idea was that the 6144 XL was a second plugin but an expandable GUI would be even better.

No, sorry... I've fixed a few things now since the 1.0 version, and it's too much of a hassle to keep both interfaces for each updated version. Also, I want to avoid legal issues...
