    I'm new to the recording thing so if this sounds a bit funny....don't shout at me. O.K i'm just building a good quality mic pre amp and it won't be too long before its finished, the mic pre has no eq on it so is there a good EQ plug in i could use along with my mic pre, or am i best building a parametric eq? I,m running Sonar 2.2, any ideas.

    If Sonar runs VST you could look into Waves, TC and Nomad Factory plugins. They have some tasty eq's. The Mackie UAD also has a Pultec style eq which sounds like a million bucks (the real one sounds like 2 million bucks).

    Waves REQ is quite acceptable, but if you want a real price/performance deal, then get the Mackie UAD-1. You can't find anything better for the buck. CHeers :)

    Thanks for all the suggestions and info. By the way the "Autotune" plug in, is this for pulling vocals into pitch or does it give some other effect or lilt to the sound as well?
    Thanks once again
  7. or the FREE Paris EQ... hehe...

    Hi Res EQ

    Alot of folks in the SawStudio community love this one. It's DX, also, so you can use it in Sonar. :c:

    My alltime favorite is the Sony Oxford EQ. a powerful and good sounding EQ.

    I tried the paris eq, and it sounds very harsh in my ears..

    Yes. No. Maybe. Both? I got it! All of the above.

    Its used to 'correct' harmonic irregularities.

    Its mis-used (read: creatively applied) to 'effect' vocals in may ways, so I hear.

    Never used it myself. Us sophisticated hip-hoppers have no need for such toys. We just hawk a loogie on the condenser's diaphragm when we need some weird effect!
