Feb 20, 2020 DMG Equilibrium. Can handle every single EQ job I throw at it. Xforce 64 bit autocad 2013. Q3 is chomping at its heels but I prefer EQuilibrium at the moment. Fabfilter Pro Q3 - Its the only EQ you'll ever need, and the greatest plugin ever made! Fabfilter Pro L2 - Its a fantastic limiter. I use it on tracks, buses and masters all the time. Pro-Q's unique Natural Phase mode performs even better. It not only perfectly matches magnitude response of analog EQing, but also closely matches the analog phase response. So it delivers the most accurate frequency response and best sound quality, even at the lowest frequencies and highest Q settings, without introducing noticable pre-ring. To begin with, the Pro-Q3 brings with it a reassuring equalization functionality. And while at it, the level of precision is something you’ll drool over. Specifically, it is a 24 band EQ that allows overly precise surgical boost and cuts.

Although great equipment is vital, it is ears and experience in mastering that’s considered to be of the greatest importance.

I own the Pro-Q and I am very happy it, I use it for demanding orchestral work (filmscore / TV etc). We have thouroughly tested it and my feeling is that the FabFilter Pro-Q is a very well designed product.

The plugin market is flooded by nonsense products (warm/tube/vintage etc and similar stupidities) and the FabFilter products


I did try the evaluation version of the DMG Equilibrium the other day. Seems they want to do EVERYTHING in one plugin. Question is if they have tried a little too hard. The Equilibrium is not nearly as user friendly and nice to use as Pro-G. Nor is is working very well. Perhaps if the Equilibrium was made more bug free and smooth it could qualify as a 'testing' plugin or 'educational' plugin. What I tested felt very 'experimental' and not convincing.

For actual real use and put into audio production FabFilters Pro-Q is vastly superior in my opinion.

Please don't make Pro-Q anything at all like the Equilibrium from DMG..

Kind regards and thanks for some great products!
