    Hell, if it's a good-sounding EQ I would pay that for it in a second if I needed five bands of parametric! If I could get a two or three band version for less, I would absolutely jump on it. Five bands parametric is total overkill IMO for anything other than maybe mastering a CD.

    Yeah; good point. Three bands for three-fifths the price would be more tempting.

    Also - I wish it didn't have the 'graphic' sliders; that bugs me. The main reason that sliders are on a graphic is so that it IS "graphic"; it's wierd to put sliders on a parametric. There's also the matter of robustness and dirt getting into the sliders and stuff.

    For a good parametric, that is pretty low.
     
  7. The Raven True Blue EQ shows up ued pretty often (also discontinued) and I haven't heard a better unit for the money. All of the controls are gain-balanced so you don't get any dropoff in output as you tweak.

    noob question:

    Parametric is as-in "parameters" - like in this case it's cut/boost, center frequency and 'Q' (or 'width' of the area being cut or boosted). So in other words "how much boost? Where do I want it to boost most? How wide of a band of freqs do I want it to affect?"

    This is as-opposed-to a "graphic" EQ, where you set it by making the 'shape' of the slider-knobs "look like" what it'd look like on a "graph" - hence "graphic".
