Waves Scheps 73
PLUGIN/EQ Waves Scheps 73

Wave's newest EQ seems rather redundant at first with the existence of the V Bundle, especially since the V EQ had never really risen to the level usage that the API and SSL EQs had for me. The end result may be the best EQ model (colored EQ) Waves has ever released.

Does the Prism Orpheus and its' brethren justify the extra cost over "midfi converters" and interfaces in the slightly more "upmarket" home set-up, or the smaller professional studio?
