I can't recommend an "all around" eq, they are all reat and have different flavors. Just get one, get to know it, and when you can, get another. And I STRONGLY urge you to not limit yourself to Alex B's stuff. CDSM has amazing presets.
The Classic Logic EQ from Alex B is works really well on most things I've tried it on. The Tube Trek from CDSoundmaster would be familiar territory compared to the Mammoth and the Producer Pack has some really nice tone shaping options
it's best to have EQs all around not only have one best all arounder..
seriously, all nebula eqs that have variable q can be considered as all-arounders..that's why they put 60 of them in one analog console right? (i'd also vote for modern white and classic logic) but really what makes mixin in digital so good is that You can have all eqs at Your fingertips..and with nebula You have best quality at best prices! and even if You only use nebula free it's still so many gigabytes of demo/free presets to try.. so why narrow down to one best?
I don't really know about all round eq, but i have one eq i allways go back to, thats a 1073 ,it just sounds good.Its very coloured, adds musicality ,still sounds good when pushed , works well with badly recorded music because it rounds things out and saturates.
I like aitb fate eq at 44.1 and cdsoundmasters at 96k, would be nice to get one at 44.1 and 192
yes ... another fine 'all-arounder' ... although the Q is 0.5-> 2.5 , the modern release has Q 0.7-> 5
Actually ... better to get both
Yes, the MWeQ has a narrower bandwidth but there is something about its sound that I don't like at all. I think I've never used it on a mix, I always remove it (just like the Mammooth EQ, I don't like their sound).
