I'm looking for a good filter plugin. While mixing, I try to create space for my low freqs of the kick and bass, so I always cut the low end from every other instrument. I always do it with EQ, but I want to do it in a lil bit more simple way, so I need a good and simple filter plugin.
I read a few articles and some people say that the quality of vst filters is important, because some bad coded filters can kill the punch out of tracks.
what you think'd be the right one? what's your experience?
The new Harrison EQ on UAD is supposed to have awesome filters. Reaper has some free vst's that are good...ReaEQ. I think those are the 2 ends of the money spectrum.
And yes I do think it makes a difference, I used to use a easy on the computer vst eq to do HP and LP and it just doesn't work as well. It seemed the tracks were getting hollowed out...not nice. I haven't tried the Harrison a ton and have used the UAD 1073 for HP and LP, am liking the Harrison though so far.
He had some cool parametric stuff from what I remember, one of which I believe had HP/LP filters. It's freeware, and if you like it you can just pay him whatever you feel it's worth (or can afford). Been meaning to check back there. Last I checked, he was adding modules faster than I could download them.
