Neve 73 style EQ shootout
Updated: Apr 17, 2018
Keep in mind, my test is rather unique as I do not simply strap an EQ across the stereo mix bus, boost a frequency, and call a day. I am actually placing an instance on each track and mixing it down like a real-world situation. So each track is shaped and molded using a 73 emulation, closer to a real mixing scenario. The contenders are from #IK, #SlateDigital VMR, #Nebula, #UAD, #Waves, #Sonimus, and I also included #TimPethrick’s Gyrator EQ which shares an ancestry with the Neve family of equalization. It’s different but still worth comparing and listening to.
The Files all matched @ track level and @ final mix RMS: -22.2 +/- .1 dB:
