Have to say that looks great, love that they put a keyboard down bellow the bands to give you a clue about what you're emphasizing or hushing globally! PSP has an isolation mode so you can hear he frequency you're working on, but no global map like that!
Also that Live skin! is it publicly available somewhere?

I just bought DMG Audio's Equilibrium after playing with the demo for a few hours. Insanely configurable, insane fan-tas-tic sound, insane workflow. Goddammit, best eq i ever used, it simply has everything i could ever wish for in an eq.
Equality and Equick were great as well, but i felt that both were missing some things. Equilibrium filled those gaps perfectly, and then some.....
I love those 'tilt' shelf filters in mid/side mode, amazing for sound design, not to mention also for mixing and mastering.

Imvho of course.


In Dave i trust KOMPLETELY!!!!!!!!!!!!

Finally got around an issue getting the demo of DMG Equilibrium , and now I'm going to have to sell some plug ins etc. to get this! 8O 8O

Everything Tarekith and 33tetragammon said and more, I like the PSP Neon a lot but this is well into sound design territory, best EQ so far.

EQ 8 in Live 9 has a spectrum analyzer behind it, aside from that what more do you need?
This.

That said I do like Voxengo Gliss EQ. it has more filter options and more options "dynamic filtering", but Live 9 EQ should handle most tasks with ease. You could also use two EQs if needed.

Seriously, DMG Equilibrium is in a class by itself, I could easily see this being the only EQ you ever used.
The piano notes at the bottom are more than useful, that you can move a peak filter around by notes, by pressing the keys, genius!
The biggest problem is that all that power comes at a price. Up there with the most expensive native EQs.

Lots of features, including Analyzer.
And it's free.
My favourite EQ unless someone tells me that it sounds shit :D
