EQ with analyser?
      #1025972 - 27/12/12 01:12 PM
Could anyone please recommend a nice simple EQ with an analyser? Something similar to Logic's own EQ, but with a bit of quality. I'll use it mainly for writing and tracking, so more for corrective EQ rather than polishing etc. I have lots of decent EQ's for mixing etc. Thanks.

Try using your favourite eq with this freebie inserted after it in the chain:

Alternatively Voxengo also make their Gliss EQ:

True, but as it doesn't have an analyser it falls outside of the scope of the OP's requirements...

I liked the Elemental Audio stuff before it got swallowed up and killed by RND. I think the EQ/Analyser was called Eqium and Firium iirc, would've fitted the bill nicely...

I know dude but for 9 lousy bucks for a pretty darn good EQ I thought I'd mention it.

Thanks guys.

I'm currently trying out FabFilter's Pro Q (thanks Richie Royale) which is so far excellent and also DMG's EQuick which also seems to hit the spot. They are both very quick easy and to use, so it will come down to how they sound.

Thanks Ken Long, I saw the Waves Q10 deal, but as Desmond mentioned the analyser is a deal breaker, also I wasn't too keen on the interface.

Thanks guys, as always this forum is a wealth of valuable info!

The Pro Q has a nice interface, the option to switch the analysis to pre or post EQ and I've found I use it on a number of projects. I'm often drawn back to my UAD Cambridge though, the high pass filter is most useful!

Yes you are right. My Sonnox Oxford EQ is my go to EQ in the latter stages of a project, but at the writing and initial tracking stages a simple, easy to use EQ with an analyser really helps my work flow.
