With the IKMultimedia promotion on their plugs currently get 5 plugs for $99 I thought I would demo them since I mostly use the UA plugs when mixing. I thought I would do a little test against the Cambridge and their Linear Phase EQ. In a session I usually use the Cambridge on non-essentials but in this case I wanted to parametrically remove stuff from a guitar track so I used it on that. In the test I set the eq settings exactly the same and at first they both sounded very similar but then I noticed the 'Linear Phase' button wasn't engaged on the TRacks so I engaged it. Can you say WOW...smooth sounding? And dare I say 'Analog'? Here are some samples with exactly the same settings: First the sound with no eq, thus bypassed: http://www.creativesoundimages.com/mp3/Bypass.wav Here is the Cambridge: http://www.creativesoundimages.com/mp3/Cambridge.wav Here is the IK Linear Phase: http://www.creativesoundimages.com/mp3/TRacksLinearPhaseEQ.wav Here are the pic's of the settings: http://www.creativesoundimages.com/mp3/UACambridgeEQ.tiff http://www.creativesoundimages.com/mp3/TRacksLinearPhaseEQ.tiff I found the harshness was gone with the IK. Which then what I did was replace all the Cambridge plugs with the Linear Phase and I am literally amazed at how much better the song sounds now. I do realize that UA makes some much, much better EQ plugs than the Cambridge, and I do own a few of them, but for the IK plug that will cost me $19.80 I would say this is an amazing bargin. So why would I ever use the Cambridge after this...I have no idea. And a side note I put IK's Fairchild 670 against UA's and with much dismay I would have to say the IK 670 sounded much better too - again more analog, rounder along with depth. I know this is only 2 plugs but for this 'gearslut' 5 plugs for $99 all I have to say is where is my damn wallet!! I'd like to know what all of you think. Peace Oh and no, this is not a promo for IK just thought you all would like to hear the difference.
