Thanks for the info! I'm going to forward your benchmark results with the Waves plugins to the developers at SADiE.

Speaking of eq plugins - if you have a PC DX compatible workstation (i.e. Samplitude,etc.) I'd be interested in what people here think of a plug that I like a lot that a friend of mine developed and that I did some beta testing for -

http://www.jms-audioware.com/dx_plugs.htm

http://www.jms-audioware.com/progs/hreq_dx_install_11.exe

It uses 64bit double precision floating point math - but it has been optimized in assembly language which allows it to be incredibly CPU efficient - I've had something like over 20 of them running simulaneosly on my older secondary system 1.8GHz P4 without a problem - so for more modern systems the cpu hit is a lot less.  

I find it very smooth when boosting is done with moderation (i.e. it's not something that I would just crank the high mid's on over +3db I find it can get a little brittle at that point) -  but a big point for me is every parameter is completely glitch free automateable in the app I use - SAWStudio - when using the SAW native version.  So basically I use the Neumann OE-DUO's for global big changes - and then this plug for a lot of the more tweaky per section fine tuning.  

Anyway - there is a DX demo for those curious - and the price is insanely low.

Think I'm going to check out the PSP Master Q - looks interesting and some of their other plugs are definitely nice.  Anyone checked out Voxengo's Gliss EQ also?  I've seen some posts singing its praises also.

Best regards,

I was about to mention JMS Hi-Res EQ. It sounds very nice but I didn't like the interface. In my experience the filter resolution is the most important aspect of FIR EQs.

My understanding of digital EQ is pretty basic so I hope I don't mess up the jive. The Samplitude filter design "plug-in" has a resolution of up to 32768 points/bands (in offline mode). While the Waves Linear Phase EQ was designed by the guy that did the Algorithmix Linear Phase EQs. The Waves Lin. Phase EQ only has a resolution of 2048. In fact most FIR implementations don't go beyond that.

So I think it would be really cool to compare a high resolution FIR implementation against the MasterQ implementation.

I hope this isn't off topic -

but I'm going to be posting an alternative skin for the Hi-Res EQ soon designed by a Russian SAWStudio user, Yura from "Sym Geo", for download on my website shortly -

here's a screen shot of the new "3d" look -

I love the PSP stuff for mixing and haven't tried the Master Q (my platform isn't supported) but I'm a bit curious about how it works for MEs. i've found them to have quite a bit of attitude and difficult to tame but OTOH they are pretty badass.

The PSP VW seems to really close down the stereo image on my system, is anyone else hearing the same?

I've downloaded the demo of the Master Q plugin and will try it soon. I enter it with open mind, but up to this point have not heard a plugin that sounded good compared to my analog gear.

I think it's just a matter of time, honestly, before plugs catch up with their analog counterparts, but the ones I've tried have left a bit to be desired, imo.

Make sure you select the Stereo switch in the bottom right corner - as the plug defaults to Mono. Had the same problem in a session until we noticed the default Mono aspect.

While you're at it, Brad, why don't you try the Sonalksis EQ demo to be found here. I'd like to hear an opinion on its supposedly analogue-like qualities from someone who knows and likes analogue as you do, or indeed from anyone with an interest.

The plug doesn't default to mono on my system. I'm talking abaout a very slight collapse of the stereo image, possibly due to the limiting, but it seems to be more than that.

You should give a try at the sonalksis then, not bad. Stil not to be compared to an IBIS, but surprisingly musical

I downloaded the Sonalksis plugs yesterday. Very impressive. One of the very few digital compressors that I think sounds good. I'm going to play around with the comp and eq a little more before I comment too much. but first impressions are very good.
