+1. MMeQ sounds better and full in comparison to Magenta 2 but both have its strength.

Magenta 2 strength is the mid and low band, not the high bands unfortunately. MMeQ high band sounds smooth even in the demo :)

MMeQ is by far the best sounding Massive Passive in Nebula world.
That includes an older previous library by another developer, that i have and used alot until recently and Magenta. Magenta is very nice to use because you can load all the bands at the same time, but soundwise its not as good as MMeQ.

One thing I like about Magenta is that the bands can overlap, just like what it seems the actual hardware can do as well from looking at pictures. In reading the description, it seems MMeQ doesn't have that capability in that the bell variable frequency ranges do not overlap. Is this correct?

Fair time now with Nebula 3 FREE. Impressed and considering SERIOUSLY purchasing Pro Bundle.

Budget somewhat constrained and would need to stay with ONLY Pro 3 Bundle (+Setups)for some time. No question about quality and value of 3rd party libraries, BUT not for some time. Bundle is a bit dated now and wonder how happy I will be using just this content when such enthusiasm for steady flow of 3rd party content. Never have seen detailed list of exact Pro 3 Bundle.

Will appreciate experienced User views on this.


The differences between Pro Bundle and Server Bundle are pretty much in the performance area. The Server version shares resources between instances and since it's based on the lastest changes/enhacements on Core6/7 engines it's much more CPU friendly and stable. You can also run two computers via LAN using the Server version. This way you can save even more resources.

NAVY is based on solid state equalizers which use one TRANSISTOR working in A-class for the 1073 and in AB-class for the 1081 in the gain makeup circuit. I don't know if NAVY is vintage, modern reissue or clone (big differences between them, you can recognize the model by the sound or seeing the spectrum/THD analysis - Marinair and Carnhill transformers have particular characteristics), MMeQ uses TUBEs for gain makeup.
So: Apple and Orange.

In the hardware the Frequency controls intentionally interact with one another, as do the Gain and Bandwidth controls.. Neither Magenta or other Nebula's libraries can emulate this behavior... The only way is to sample A LOT of combinations (milions) which require years of work and a GIGANTIC plugin/library.
Plugin like UAD emulates easily this behavior...
What you see in Magenta is a simple "stack" of bands which you can to do by inserting as many nebula instances as bands you need, as described in the MMeQ Manual.

I can't say that MMeQ sounds exactly like the hardware but very very very close, with his 3dimensional and little fat/saturated sound, without making thin bass and scooped mids.

Hi AlexB,

Look forward to demo'ing this library!

If I may ask ... You've identified this library as the 'Mix eQ' and mention difference to a 'mastering' version. Is this a subtle hint that a 'mastering' version is planned ?

I want to be honestly clear only and not sell the same sampled hardware as mix and master eQ ;)

Alex one quick question, with the "PoolTeQ" you can get the same effect doing what you mention here, or is a little different because it's an older library? (different sample techniques etc.) ...
