Does this help?

Do you have an iLok and a PT system?
It does mention:
Quote:

Please allow a 24 hour time to receive your trial license deposit onto your iLok.com account.

Have you received your trial license?

I use the AIREq Native which is the VST version and you need a STienberg Key to use the VST version, but RTAS and TDM require the iLok.


I think that did it.  I will wait 24 hours and report.

I like the Digi EQ3

but I also use the URS plug ins

mostly the A version, but the Motown EQ is also pretty interesting

and of course, with Channel Strip Pro, you get a bunch of choices.

not overpriced, and not TERRIBLY DSP hungry

i keep looking at the URS stuff.  i've heard mixed things.  i just need to demo them and form my own opinion.

I've had my eye on the URS stuff, please let me know how you like it.

The new SPL EQ bundle looks interesting too.

I don't have monitors here yet so I'm not really up for demoing any new plugins at the moment.

I agree with Wm about th URS-A, and occasionally the URS-N.

And the UA Precision had some good and usable features.

But seriously, none of them really come close enough to great hardware units yet.

Not that you wanted to hear that...

I think the URS A series sounded better when it looked just like an API.....

I don't know if you're being factious Dave, but I genuinely thought it sounded better when it had the fixed gain steps. I've been trying to find if I have the backup disk of the original, with no luck.

I was kidding, but it is funny what one part of the mind tells the other parts.

Ross, are you referring to the latest version that doesn't look like an API, compared to the previous one or the original, with the fixed gain steps? I really want to compare them to be sure. It could just be that I've gotten used to it, so it's just normal now.

I wondered about that as well, but didn't want to have fallen victim to "Blue Knob Syndrome."

Fortunately, I kept my original versions.

i'm starting to not dig EQ3 all that much.  what EQs are you guys using that sound great and are DSP/RTAS friendly.

keep in mind it's not uncommon for me to get 60 - 96 tracks at mix so i need something that really won't bog the system down.

the Waves Neve stuff is super-colored especially on the top end.

with most digital EQ's (URS A and N, Waves Q and Ren, Digi EQ3, etc etc) i find i can make things fairly similar by playing with the Q settings.

but the Waves Neve is just a different beast.  there are spots where it's definitively been the best tool for the job and other spots where it sounds real bad.

i'm an EQ3 guy myself, and occasionally use the Waves Neve when needed.  i have the URS plugins too but for whatever reason don't really use them much anymore.
