for mastering -> mammoth
for mixing -> CLeQ or sidecar81 console (N**e 1081 eq)

They're pretty similar, a Quality factor of 2.5 in the CLeQ is comparable to a Quality factor of 4.5 in MWeQ, at least that's what I've been able to discern between them.

the think with CLq is that for me the high mids/highs were less smooth and nice than some of the other EQs...so where that punchier characteristic is good for me is the lows/low-mids but in the highs not so much...
However the MWq doesnt have the punch and heft of the S*L in the lows...(IMO)...

Its quite difficult to have just ONE with EVERYTHING but at their prices...why not have more?!

CLq for lows and Doc Fear for Highs would work pretty well for not much...

Mammoth! Why? Because it sounds very "special" to me. A smoothness with lovely color no other EQ has. Love it!

Also the mammoth expansion has combo programs i use all the time. I wish more developers made combos.

+1 for the CLeQ, if I could only have one that would be it.

What (if any) Nebula EQ can do precise, narrow-Q cuts?

The first I thought of is Focal Point 115HD EQ from CDSoundMaster...

may you go for fabfilter pro-q. it's one of the best and most versatile out there(it is switchable to linearphase)!!

you don't need a nebula eq as "one" eq solution. you need a nebula eq if you want a specific sound (colour) or behavour which is related to a certain hardware unit.

conclusion:
best eq -> fabfilter pro-q, PLParEq, algorithmix eq's or similar...
best colour -> nebula eq depending on your taste and music!!

if you look for a narrow q, then (i assume) you want to do sergical tasks. nebula is not so good for this, as the most eq's have fixed frequencies. those which are sweepable, are interpolated and imo the frequency interpolation of nebula works good, but not perfectly well (also dependent on how many steps the developer has sampled). but in general, the frequency interpolation sounds to me more as a blend of the two frequencies sampled instead of the frequency inbetween.

so may you tell us what you want to achive with "one" eq?

I'll use Live's EQ8 for the precise stuff then (it's actually very good).

A nebula EQ may then provide the sweetness. Still, I'd like as much flexibility as possible.
