Nice looking plug! There's only two things missing that would make it perfect in my eyes:

1. the analog mode (maybe instead of linear mode)
2. proportional Q option

Like this is almost just another Pro-Q.

Idk anything about pro Q...but this has some cool features. If you command click a on the graph, a new band is added, if you control click on the graph, a new band is added and all other bands are temporarily bypassed allowing you to sweep the frequencies while holding the click...also a lo and hi pass filter follow the band around, when you release, the band is engaged and other bands are restored...pretty cool

Woho, just got my license this afternoon(already own EQuality). What a nice surprise.

Very cool, very practical. Still studying the manual. I don't want to miss anything.

On first inspection, this just looks like a Fabfilter Q clone

Yeah, successful attempt to have some similar like Fabfilter Pro-Q but with the better EQ from Equality. Free for all existing EQuality users!
M/S now per band!! Works great and is a big improvement to EQuality. Solo band with right-button... Right button click will inverse the band.
Digital and linear type.

There are not many wishes for further improvements! Eventually some of the types from EQuality. May be a special mastering edition or in the future also a merging of both EQ to one?

It looks so good and the workflow is so smooth and for most of us it's free!!

Now I wish the same with Compassion :P A easy to use compressor with not too many options. Maybe a "Sonalksis SV315" with some analog modeled stuff but with the ideas of Dave?

And thank you for giving away such a great product. Really the only thing missing is the analog mode.

Wow, thanks Dave, this is great!

Don't get rid of linear mode, please.

If you read this thought, please take in account one thing. I would advocate placing the plugin re-sizing feature on the top left (or include in the clickable "Equick" menu). I hit the "Huge" button and the plugin moved off the screen and could not be set back unless I deleted it. A display flaw Audition, not sure how it works in other programs.

Here is what I mean, the effects rack does not allow scrolling to the right. Adobe's fault, but you're much better at fixing things.

Thanks again

Is there any sound quality difference between this one and EQuality, or it is the same code but only stripped down version?

I'm finding the scrolling to be very jerky, so it makes it very difficult to use, does anyone find this?

When I last demoed Pro-Q and EQuality a long time back, I have to say I felt Pro-Q just had the edge compared to EQualitys Digital/Digital+ modes, which is the most direct comparison of no-latency modes.

But EQualitys Analog Phase mode sounded best of all, albeit at higher cpu and latency hit. But this again was comparable to DDMF LP10 eq running in min phase mode.

In the end I didn't buy either as I just couldnt make my mind up!. Been meaning to though.... ugh decisions....

From what I can see, it has the digital and Linear Phase filters from Equality. Not the Digital+, Analog Phase, or Minimum Phase filters. It does have metering, MS selection on each band, stereo width control, analyzer control, and all the other bells and whistles. (No K-System metering though like in Equality) Other than that it has many more bands selectable, Not to mention a very nice horizontal zoom slider which allows you to see up to 1Hz increments in the graph in some cases. Great for pinpointing problems.

Hey Dave

First off many thanks for the free plugin since i'm an Equality owner, that is very much appreciated and only makes me a bigger fan of DMG Audio.

I am however a bit lukewarm on the plugin, just to be totally honest. It seems like it has brilliant potential but it is really, really sluggish on my 3.4 GHZ i7 iMac with 16 GB Ram, even in 64 bit. When I say sluggish I mean so slow dragging the eq's around that I don't want to use it...it has that feeling like I'm on a really old computer just fighting with it to do something basic.

I don't want to discourage other people from buying or using it as it may be a system specific problem to me. Did you guys test on 10.7.1? That's what I'm running and wondering if there's some compatibility problems with. Hope we can get this fixed at some point cause this looks like a super plugin otherwise!

Hmm. This must be more a Mac/OSX specific thing. It works excellent on the PC (Win7 64Bit) and is also using not much processing power in linear phase mode and I'm using no high end GPU (GT520) and a decent CPU (E6600).

Actually its stopped being Jerky now? I don't know why but its just stopped and is nice and smooth now.

I am loving this thing, its a pleasure to use, it sounds great from what I have tried so far, extremely low CPU, I just don't know how they managed it.
