    I need a good eq and compressor for my DAW.

    I don't want to spend more than $150.00 each.

    any suggestions?

    thanks,
    Mark

    has anyone heard a DBX 215 EQ?
     
  3. compressor - FMR RNC $179

    Eq - Presonus EQ3B $100

    combination - Joemeek ThreeQ $200

    the RNC is great, the EQ3B probably isn't but will work. Not much else out there for your budget. The meek is supposedly a pretty good budget channel strip.(pre,eq,comp)

    Hope that helps

    I'm going to be using the EQ mostly for DI guitar. What should I go with?

    Yamaha, DBX, Presonus or Behringer

    or do they all suck.

    I need more opinions

    Please help!

    thanks,

    Mark....For that price I would look to the used rack.There several brands that have held their quality vs. price..Symetrix is one and the 525 compressor is a great unit for the money....usually under $100 on Ebay....its a very capable piece that doesnt add a lot of its own artifacts but can be driven to pump hard if thats what you want..As a nice contoller for overages at a 2:1 or 4:1 ratio it really shines.EQ, on the other hand, is a hit or miss situation.A lot of EQ's at that price come with a high noise floor.Perhaps an increase in mic technique and placement is in order rather than a piece of gear.
