    Hey folks, so what are people using these days for outboard EQ?

    I usually like to track pure and EQ in the mix but after a series of recording events last night too boring to explain I think I would like to try inserting a EQ into the input chain.

    It's my DBX 386 pre that I had in mind. I guess my budget us around $500 and I'll need two channels of parametric EQ.

    What do you like, and why?

    Thank you for your thoughts.

    I use the SPL Passeq. (The most powerful passive EQ ever made—144 (!) passive filters (72 per channel) in one EQ.)
    Its sweet on top and punchy as hell on the bottom. They way it cuts and boosts is brilliant.
    Its extremely quiet, you wouldn't know its on. Quiet operating gear is top priority for me.

    There is a plugin version of it that you can watch to give you an idea on how it works. Highly recommend it.

    That's a beautiful EQ man but unfortunately about 5 times my budget lol.

    I guess this is the pro audio forum. :)
