doc fear and mammoth eq

Postby tyrrell » Wed Jan 09, 2013 12:45 am

I am struggling with which to buy. i have read ad much as i can find about them and they both seem great.
mammoth gets talked about more for mastering i am wondering how well it works on most sources in mixing.
The doc fear seems great too but i am not sure if it would be too colored for mastering.
I guess i am asking which would get more general use and if i would be really missing something one can do that the other dosen't.

Well, it completely depends on what you want to do. D.W. Fearn VT-4(Doc Fear) sounds super tube-y and vintage. Massive Passive (Mammoth) sounds more modern and is used by several professionals. I personally like the VT-4 on stuff like strings and vocals. They are both VERY colorful, and the VT-4 sounds kinda "old".

I'd go with the Massive Passive since it fits modern production better and is more versatile. It's also known for it's ability to make huge boosts without sounding harsh. Good stuff.

Oh yeah, they're both pretty old releases and only available in 44.1k which is a no-go for a lot of people (fortunately some of the combo programs for Mammoth are 96k, like the "Smile 3 which i usually use).

There are some differences between those EQs.

The Doc Fear comes with (iirc):
Low cut/boost
Mid cut
High peak boost
High shelf cut

Mammoth has:
Filters (HP and LP)
Low shelf cut/boost
Low peak cut/boost
Low mid cut/boost
High mid cut/boost
High shelf cut/boost
High peak cut/boost

They're both great sounding libraries.

Some one over at gearslutz mentioned the ELC stereo eq by Tim P and that he perfered it over both of the other two. i am going to spend time demoing that today to see how i like it. with out demos of the other two i won't know how they compare.

Well, this is comparing apples to bananas :D
Mammoth EQ + Doc Fear are passive tube EQs which you were asking for initially.
Tim's EQ is a completely different pair of shoes! :geek:

Oh yeah, they're both pretty old releases.


About their age: We were the first guys who started serious developing/sampling for Nebula, so yes, the libraries are "early" releases.

But Nebula has NOT developed any further since this for EQs so we are not missing any "better" or newer feature. (Else we would re-sample and re-release)

If you are interested in a certain setting I can prepare a personal demo for you.

I understand that they are different. the only reason i am not buying a whole lot of everything is because i don't make money from recording so i try not to go too crazy spending on it (i have failed for what it's worth)
As far as the them being old releases goes. I think it gives people more time to get past the hype. These both seem to be two of the most respected eqs in all of nebula.

I'm the guy who said "I preferred the ELC".

I don't "prefer" it...I just use it more. Mammoth is incredible at what it does!
