Thanks.

Could you please upload this somewhere else? It asks me to install a special downloader for this and I wouldn't like to.

Cheers.

I'm going to update this test a few hours later with a newer topic.

And I will provide better AB blind test source.

Since I noticed later the original VBQ has 5Kernals in MF only, I guess the resulting files is a little bit unfair due to Waves 550A has 3Kernals and much higher 2nd order harmonics.
And Waves 550A is louder than VBQ without adjustment.

The result:
a= Waves 550A
b= VBQ

I found the blind test result interesting because it's not trival to tell if I've already known the answer.
The low frequency boost of Waves is too tight and a little bit artificial.
The high of VBQ is more open.
Anyway the Waves 550A is praised and do a better job than S*L series.

Maybe I should try the famous mid-frequnecy boost to showcase A*I 550a.

Latter on, I will do another blind test with the new released VBQ and hope the differences will be bigger :)

The test is not conclusive.
Maybe for this drumkit Waves 550A is more suitable.
And rarely a mix use only 1 instance of EQ.

I shall try 5~6 EQ instance for the drumkit to see the result.
