I was just wondering if there are any eqs in Neb that excel at cutting? I know that there are a few that are amazing at boosting in the high end, but what about cutting in the midrange areas? Algos seem to really destroy the sound when cutting unwanted midrange frequencies.
Would need to see more specific information on the type of cut eq you're looking for.
It can range from graceful slopes to surgical, and various Q options possible.
That said ... [and not to sound cliché], but I'm trying to think of a 'BAD' Nebula equalizer I might have overlooked one in my collection, but I agree that algo's [although useful] are not as 'musical' or sonically enhancing like NEB.
I'm sure everyone has their favorites ... I have several, that range from 'colorful' to pristine.
What are you looking for? What do you already have?
I'm looking for an eq that I can use for pre-mixing duties. Say you have a vocal that has been recorded with a a cheap mic in a room that is boxy and you want to remove some of the midrange mud. Maybe sometimes you have to gouge the mids out of an acoustic guitar to make way for other more important instruments. You don't want to totally ruin the guitar but you have no choice. That's the sort of thing I'm looking for.
it sounds great and it's a real workhorse of an EQ. at least by nebula standards. you should check it out.
Thank macro, I actually have the ape eq already. I haven't actually tried cutting with that one to tell you the truth.
I was more thinking of something of something like the Tubetrek from CDsoundmaster. That think has the most incredible top end that you can boost for days without any apparent artifacts. I once boosted 10 db of 3k on a vocal without any apparent side effects. I only had to back it off because the vocal was poking out of the mix "somehow" If I could find something like that for the mids except for cutting, I'd be in mix heaven!

I have Classic logic eq and it is fantastic. What I was hoping for though was more of an eq with that wow factor that just makes the problem frequency just go away. Classic logic eq is fantastic but it doesn't make the problem frequency magically "just go away"
AlexBs White Eq (RND Portico) is very good at this. I bought this EQs because it is "something different" from all those old EQs, a relative new brand, Rupert N**e is involved etc.
The white EQ has free adjustable freq-bands and Q-levels. It is said to be very clean and "silky" in the high-end. However I was working with a friends speak and thought it sounded a bit tin, I boosted the 100 hz with it and was suprised about the weight it added, it certainly does something nice in the low.
Test this one, the option to freely set the Q and freq makes it very good with cutting.
