Are there any demos for this?


If these other Baxandall eq plugins are not nebula (which they must not be since CDSM made the first, I believe) then I don't see much reason to compare (my opinion). This is worth the very few dollars it costs, and even if you have similar algo plugins, you KNOW that this one will get used anyway (and eventually replace your algo ones....I hope you didn't pay too much for those...lol).

Baxandall eq's are nothing new. I'm sure these are excellent but I always like to hear & judge for myself.

No kidding.
I'm just inquiring to see if there's a demo available before I do.

Like I said I already have Baxandall type plugins. I know how they work & function.

I'm interested in demos the these not others!

Nebula prices are insanely low. let's call it a lifetime demo for 40$

OK ... have had only a bit of time test driving the BXQ equalizer.

This is a nice sounding eq. From minimal to heavy settings, it is quite transparent ... which is of particular need in the mastering arena. A nice 'complimentary' eq to call on.

With its broad 'curves', the ability to smoothly alter the spectrum with minimal coloration is similar in nature to one of the Pultec library, allowing a type of 'Tilt' operation.

Two issues that I've yet to fully handle ...

1. Gain Structuring.

I typically drive inputs into Nebula with a source track that PEAKS at -6dB [FS], which can place RMS levels anywhere from -20 to -16 dB [RMS]. My Nebula INPUT meter ends up being VERY low ... sometimes NO LED's lite ! :?

I should mention that there DOES seem to be a discrepancy between various 3rd party developers that I have not been able to pin down. I know discussions about this have come up in the past, but at that time I was not in a 'controlled environment' and I would ignore Neb meters in favor of something like FreeG. But really, it would seem that a Universal metering scale would be something agreed upon. Lets' talk about this!
So, due to the 'broadness' of the eq curves, gain staging is still critical to be mindful of, especially since the nature of this EQ can move broad areas of the spectrum. Just a reminder point.

The other issue ...

This goes more to the included presets, and NOT being sure what exact model was used [could be dangerous to assume] ;) but if I did so, it seems that many of the shelving EQ freq points are not in this library ?!? :o or I have completely missed them during my brief test flight :?

I'm curious ... did I ?!?! if not ... did the original unit NOT have these points ??

Enough speculation ... wait for response!

Many more comments later afterward :P
