No parametric eq RE's
Anyone else noticed this? The SSL EQ's sound great so I guess it's easy to do without any other EQ's but it's curious that there are now so many different alternatives to the MClass compressor, but no alternatives to the MClass EQ.

don't fret - Red Queen is next on the list and this will be a 2 or even 3 mode EQ device:

10 bands of Parametric or Graphic or... wait for it.. if we cna do it, z-plane filtering!

so yes we are gonna check this one out asap and up it as soon as we can. Will add in a mod wheel to boot and likely a mod matrix to go with it (for z-plane action aplenty)

That sounds like the shiznit... Pardon my French
Latency?.... :-D

should be fine if using same CPU hit as REQ131.. and that has 31 filters :D

I also miss alternatives for MClass EQ... The SSL is way better, but I'd like to have EQ of that quality within the Reason Rack. So I am currently "shopping" for an EQ. But, before making any purchase, I'm waiting for the Red Queen, as it could become, if it sounds good, our best parametric EQ option. Here's the last mockup of it released by LabOne Recordings:

If you really can't wait, there's Uhbik-Q, a good parametric EQ which sounds very good. What many users don't like thought about Uhbik-Q is that you cannot see exactly what frequency you are boosting: that device is made to be use "by hear".

There's other EQs in the shop, but I voted against them for these reasons (personal preferences here):

- Softube's Trident A: too expensive to me!
- Synapse's VE-3 Vintage EQ: fixed frequencies + I'm not into analog emulation
- LabOne's ReQ131: graphic equalizer

Uhbik Q is at least semi-parametric. There are some Q options. The UI is a little different than I'm used to and no visual feedback, but it does the job. Would like a true visual feedback EQ like Waves Renaissance EQ and many others. My understanding is the SDK isn't quite ready for this.

Am waiting.

Holy crap, I never thought to look this up before, look at the price on the SSL's eq:
