What's your favorite lunchbox 500 EQ?

Hi,

Now that I've placed my preamp order (Capi VP28s) and bought my compressor (Elysia Xpressor) I'm looking for the 3rd effect for my busses and master out -channelstrip to complete my Radial Six pack. I'm a electronic music producer btw and use a lot of fabfilter, UAD (Neve ans Ampex),Lexicon plugins and hardware synths and some effects like a AKG BX5 reverb unit.

What's your favorite lunchbox 500 EQ?

Thanks!
Love the 550.
Why are you the wrong person to answer this? These are your favorites aren't they?

Hi,

I'm also looking for an Eq 500.. I hesitate between Maag Eq4, Kush Electra, Chandler Little Devil Eq, Great River Harrison 32Eq
Maag Eq4 is great in the top end, Chandler Little Devil has strong character/coloration, Harrison 32Eq is very flexible and has great hpf/lpf, and Kush Electra, flexible too and cost less but I don't really know how it sound, I don't seen review yet (exept from some users..)

I really like my Chandler Little Devil EQ's. They are very powerful and sweet sounding. The amount of clarity and presence you can inject into something is unreal.

I really like the Great River\Harrison but I have to admit I'm very intrigued by what RND just announced

Favorite is impossible, but if you are asking for a stereo EQ for mix buss and also have the elysia xpressor 500...I would seriously consider the xfilter. It is made to do what you want...!

Not precisely but it seems like a great EQ indeed.
Any other favorite 500 EQ's? Please let me know!

+1 on the Great River/Harrison. Super flexible and doesn't get in the way. Also often overlooked is the IGS Rubber Bands (super smooth Pultec type, and from what I can tell it's the most flexible of this type of EQ in 500 with the Q and extra low cut). Looking forward to the not-too-distant future Trident 500 EQs.

Continuing with EQs I've never used but I'm highly intrigued by how about the Anamod Relios A9052:

Aren't these more filter modules than EQ ones?

I've only used the API 550s, and the Great River Harrison 32 EQ. Both are great, but the Harrison wins out by virtue of its filters, which are great.
