It's on sale for $99. The normal price is $249.

Does anybody have it? Is it any good? ... squad.html;

i only test the demo on a few mixes, very surgical but to clean for my needs, i have tracks classic eq and sounds much warmer in my opinion

My opinion is the opposite of above--

the sQuad EQ's are designed to model more "vibey" analog EQs, and I think it does the job really, really well. They are great sounding, you can boost the top end and it doesn't get all harsh. Lovely, lovely eq's. Slightly weird GUI's and CPU hogs, but great sounding. Comparable to UAD IIRC.

T-Racks classic EQ is much more of a clean-surgical EQ, and great at what it does. I Love 'em both.

before you buy the sQuad bundle, I'd recommend you demo them, and try stillwell's 1073 and vibe EQ (which are cheaper, and arguably just as good with less cpu hit) for comparison....

Would agree with Metaphor... very vibey. Can't really go wrong with the 4 (5 if you count the extended ClassicQ) cool EQ's for $99.

Also, in the age of surgical eq's where it's possible to move in 0.5 frequency increments it's quite nice to have less options occasionally.

(I succumbed by the way).

I`ve started using them some time ago... I`m totally addicted right now. I love those plug-ins.
