Lives for gear
For me personally with a quality mic like u67/269 I think any SW eq would do really. The quality is already in the signal. For me I went compressor hunting instead and found the 1176 + Cl1b combo to be a winner, especially the cl1b.

Classic, 1176 takes 3-8db's on peaks and the CL1b takes about 10db. Takes about 5min to get a perfect vocal sound.

Also i like to keep the u67 with something a bit cleaner on the preamp side. I love the crane song spiders tape fx but that can make the u67 distort quite easily, especially with a colored compressor.

HW compression is still quite allot better then SW, eqs not so much these days.
