I love the eq116 Linear phase mode filters but I did some research I was told that "Maat EQ Due to the double IIR Filter the lowcut becomes a Linkwitz-Riley Filter. For me and many others it’s the king of the surgical filters and it can really work miracles." really have this degree difference between eq116 and maat eq orange or Ozone 9 digital (surgicel FIR eq) ? Ozone 9 also has very clean FIR filters and the CPU uses it very well and is affordable, or eq 116 linear phase eq is very clean transparent and does not tire the CPU too much.
but matt orange eq $ 1000 is really that good
there really is a quality difference like what to give this money (mAAt Orange EQ 1000$)
Having not used mAAT orange, but having used eq116 and ozone 7,
Having not used mAAT orange, but having used eq116 and ozone 7, all i can suggest is trying a demo of orange. Considering eq116 is found in sequioa as well as samplitude, there's no reason to believe its not a true mastering quality eq. I also like ozone and fafilter very much.
Unless you've got mastering level acoustics, conversions, and speakers, then the money you'd spend on orange, could be better spent elsewhere.
I would certainly add Fabfilter PRO Q2 or Q3 into the equation..
