Hello Alex!

i would like to hear your thoughts about the FREQD and TIMED values tweaking. i read on your manuals from the site that you didnt advise this kind of change. Do you still think the same way with the new versions of your libraries? What exactly goes wrong with TIMED mode, in your opinion?

Best Regards!

Downloading now. Nice touch including the filters and cut/boost in the same programs.

I will compare this to the UA Massives - for me their workflow and shaping is very similar to the hardware but the tone and size is slightly lacking. I have high hopes for the MMeQ.


To me, the UAD sound good, but something is missing. When you add the Alex Massive Mix eQ everything makes sense, that "something missing" is something that Algo plugins cannot reproduce........ yet?

Maybe this is not the place, but people do not forget Magenta II, Amazing! on the Master Buss.

Whatever you touch in settings it changes the sound, not improve it !
The libraries are sampled and programmed to be the closest as possible at the original sampled unit.
Change the sound = the result will be different from the sampled hardware. Better or worst is not important, the fact is that you will haven't that original hardware's sound. A true non sense IMHO.
Mix with the ears, not with the eyes...

hmmm question ...

Are the FREQ selections 'stepped'?

Hi RJ,

The Frequency and Gain are variable not stepped. :)

hmm ... I was hoping it was a mis-type.

Just curious, does the original "mix" type hardware have stepped pots? I couldn't see that verified on the hardware website. It did indicate that the "mastering" version of the hardware had specially designed stepped pots. Thanks R.J.

Ah ... that's probably it, evaderod. I'm thinking the mastering version with stepped freq selection. I don't recall how the GAIN function.

On the hardware frequency selection is stepped, gain and bandwidth controls are continuous (for the standard version).
