    i am looking for a vst eq that allows you to zoom in and isolate a specific frequency without affecting the surrounding ones. is there such an animal?

    merci in advance.

    Any parametric EQ will do this. Crank up the Q.

    A parametric equalizer allows you to sweep to any frequencies you want.

    Then you can adjust the "Q", which is the width of how many frequencies it will be affecting.

    Then your boost & cut to dial in your respective tweak. Of course, in theory, you'd think this would work great and everybody would want it. But that's generally not the case except for George Massenburg. But even he's had to record & mix on lousy old Neve consoles with limited EQ. He still managed to make a good recording, in spite of those awful Neve consoles.

    thanks for the input remy. i think i should have been more clear: i am looking for an eq with a super narrow notch. an eq with surgical precision.

    Why? Is there anything wrong with the EQ's you're using? I'm not trying to be rude -- I'm just curious.

    That type of EQ is sometimes called a Notch Filter.

    I don't know if this one is any good but it's free so why not try it out.

    You may be able to get more precise with a filter rather than an EQ...but lots of EQ's can get very narrow bandwidths. How narrow do you need this thing to be?

    The Waves Q Parametric Equilizer can go suuuuuuper narrow.
