Honestly, I use ~3 EQs on any given track to get the sound I'm looking for. After compression, I reach for my SSL Native X-EQ (visual parametric) for fine tuning and LPF/HPF, then I reach for my Puig-like Pultec EQH-2 & MEQ-5. That pretty much takes me where I need to be a lot of the time as far as EQ goes.

With Cubase and Ableton live, the built in EQ plugins do a great job if you know what you are doing and have a basic understanding of how to apply it.

If you want some free EQ plugins here are some links to check out:

my own free EQ favourite is TDR Nova by Tokyo Dawn Labs.

If you're looking to add character try the stupidly named QuadrafuzzV2 you already have in cubase. I overlooked this for years thinking it was some kind of fuzz pedal effect.

I actually love this plugin. I too discounted it until I tried it one day and was blown away at how utterly useful it is. Does proper grunge!
