Cytomic helped to redesign EQ Eight Live 9 think they added an analogue algorithm if you double click it you get some extra functions and a larger GUI.
Other than that DMG Audio Equick is the best EQ their is you can make it nearly full screen, its pure transparent, upto 32 bands.
Theirs another EQ from DMG Audio with everything EQ related in one coming out in about two months.
The Live 9 EQ8 algorithm is the most advanced there is. It is a linear (ie doesn't adding drive) analog model of an SVF, so it has brilliant numerical properties and all parameters can be automated completely smoothly. This level of audio quality and smooth automation are not possible with any other EQ I know of.
If you don't have Live 9 and you want a linear EQ (ie one that doesn't add any drive) then I recommend the DMG EQ plugins, they don't ruin your audio like some other plugins, they have a good price, an easy to use interface. You need to leave all the settings alone for the length of a track through unless you want added artefacts.
