    I downloaded the demo for the soft tube trident eq , and I really like it ,but its too pricey.

    Can anyone suggest an EQ plugin thats not so expensive .
    I need one that can bring out the hi freq and not get ugly .

    ATM I have the stock pro tools eqs , the mcdsp AE 400 , Tokyo dawn slick eq .

    Not to sabotage Kurt's link to freeware - there are some occasional gems out there that are free, but they're rare.

    You didn't mention a budget...

    I've been using Waves SSL G Series EQ's and I really like them. They have a very nice, silky, airy kind of top end... assuming, of course - and this goes for any plug you use, regardless of price - that the tracks you are working with are well recorded to begin with.

    I think Waves has a deal going on right now for the SSL Bundle, which includes the E and G Series channel strips and EQ's.

    You may want to check their site.

    Yeah , Davedog , I do like the trident EQ , because I can hear what its doing on my speakers .
    Guess I ll wait a while until I can buy it down the line ,or maybe some one will bring out a less expensive new plug in ( wouldnt that be awesome ) .

    Donny, the budget is pretty slim at the mo . We have a computer that crashed this morn , so buying an EQ plug in is now on the back burner wish list ...

    In the mean time , I will try to record better and possibly not need it :)

    Kurt , I downloaded the link ,but it will not open on my mac . :confused:

    Anyways thanks again for your advice guys (y)

    I would look at the PSPaudioware plugins. I love their Noble Q Equalizer, but they have some other interesting looking EQ's too. Reasonable prices too.
