Parametric EQ recomendations

Member for

Hello all,
I am looking for a parametric eq that will be used exclusively for equalizing the final mixes. $500 is about my limit, and I am not opposed to buying used. What brands should I look at?

Thanks,
Robert

Has anyone ever used the tube ART EQ? They are cheap and I have been wondering about them. I used some ART tube mic pres that worked very well on a remote gospel chior I did on location once in Oakland CA. They compared nicely to some much more expensive Neve 1272 and API pres I used on the gig. Fats

Aphex and Symetrix make one that are $50 under $500 brand new :( . This is more than likely your three picks for new stuff (there are others out there to), there are many used units out there that may or may not be better (because of use) but have it checked out if your not sure about it. If your useing a DAW there are to manyplug-insfor me to list here. Where are you located? I can find some thing that you can use if your con-fused :confused: about what to buy.

good luck

I wouldn't put a "$500" eq across my mix...leave it for mastering...unless you can find a used GML for $500. That point of the chain (the final stereo bus) is TOO important to stick something across,IMO :cool:
