Well, if 5 people say they like Mammoth better, and only 1 says they like Doc Fear, then there may indeed be a color that's generally more likable.



Generally more likable? Sure. But that's general, not definitive. I mean if 5 people (which is not much in truth) admit to preferring one EQ over another how do you qualify those opinions as one EQ being factually better than another? It's a matter of perspective. And if we were to actually poll many engineers - for nebula or analog - you will find opinions all over the board or more likely preferences of certain EQ's for certain situations.

Okay, I get what you guys are saying and see the philosophical truth to it, but the real world truth is YES, there are certain eq's and such that are better than others. Sure you can tell me beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but you don't see anyone nebulizing Behringer and Art eq's.

Anyway, you have somewhat of a point, but I don't see the harm in asking people's opinions as a starting point.

though I like Doc Fear's hi peak band more than PoolTeQ's MF @10kHz/12kHz. :D :D

I had to chime in that in a particular project I am in the middle of, CDSM's Cooltec is THE s%#t! And I need to stress again that it is so cool to use, lets say, both Pooltec and Cooltec on different sides of the stereo spectrum on one instrument. It really broadens the tones. And believe it or not, I find myself using Cooltec most of all when I am needing a Pultec sound. I guess there is something for everyone and enough to make everyone happy! Thanks Nebula!

It might be slightly off topic and not very scientific but...

I just mastered a remix I have just finished and I tried 4 different eqs and rendered 4 different files to check.

Eq's were almost all the same settings (eq permitting) with about 2db gain for bass (100hz) and about 2db gain for treble (about 10khz). The mix is pretty tight so this is just a bit of sweetening.

The eqs were:
GMC (with console inputs/outputs).
Mammoth.
Doc Fear.
and for good measure UAD Precision EQ.

For this track the mammoth left it wide open and bright, and dynamic and all others were a bit dull/boomy.

The UAD came in second I think.

Not a scientific test as I say but a real mastering situation that left me appreciating the mammoth today!

I did use doc fear, MLEQ, Neve1073, mammoth, APE in the mix a lot so they all got used.


Question: Is the DOC fear similar to a pultech?

That is my understanding.

And off topic to your slightly off topic (lol), I have done an almost identical mastering experiment with the same eq's (except the UAD) and find the GMC eq to be awesome.
