I always use this during the mastering in Logic. It makes the sound a little more transparent. Again very "gentle" settings.
you did it again fantastic
great for mastering to get that final something
I'm liking The Precision EQ for subtle and clean adjustments, mostly on program material. It does a lot very well, with a minimal CPU hit. Loving it.
Great tool, most transparent EQ in my opinion. Love it for adding "air" and widening to my mixes. Use it on every project!
I like Precision serise..
Also..Preset is good!!
Well, what can I say that everyone haven't said... You all know how incredible this plug-in is. So, I will try to say something focused on my perspective, maybe to help new buyers to have a more clear mental image about this plug.in.
I think this EQ has its own "personality" even though It is pretty transparent...
Like its name says, it is a PRECISSION plug-in, so its work is very accurate and first of all it is ment to be a MASTERING plug-in, and anyone that has mastered before knows that a MASTERING plug-in MUST BE ACCURATE, because the tweakings that you have to do sometimes are complicated and you MUST have a precission tool like this one. Just as a surgeon SHOULDN'T use a regular knife to make a cut on his patient, neither should we :D
I have been assembling a Mastering system which involves all of the precision plug-ins (except for the Multi-band comp because I have the MOTU version) . I have become fascinated by the 20-27k range. It clearly has an effect on the program, but not one of "brightness" more one of "air". It is very useful. I am going to purchase another card so I can use instances of it on every track without overloading the computer. Super easy to use. Another home run by UAD.
I am sure that Precision eq is ideal for use on overhead. Using plug-in (in demo mode) on the overheads, I was surprised how well the sound of my drums now. The next day I bought this plugin! Try using it on Oh, I think you'll like it as I do!
From Russia with love :) Happy new year! UAD - you're the best!!!
i use to have it in my older computer...........so i could not live without it in my new..............sounds great.........no extreme settings.........and the job is done......
Great quality and musicality. I'm waiting for some new presets from famous users and some quick 30-60 second video tips for each plugin.
It will be great as well to read or watch about some GREAT UAD FX CHAINS,
Maybe we can start with VOCAL DANCE UAD FX CHAIN, for example:
I love my UAD plugins but I feel that I use only about 20-30% of its POWER.
Greatings from Poland,
My eq. What a sound! I have a Chandler EMI Curve Bender which is a simple but POWERFUL eq, this one looks to me a bit similar in his conception. Few touches, a great musical eq sound.
Masters, tracks, instruments, good on everything.
All I ask for is a HI cut (i need to put a Cambridge EQ in the chain just for that).
Then it's perfect.
The quick EQ that does no harm to your mix. If you need a touch of air in your mix, a little brilliance, here is it. Same goes for an uplift on the bass line to make it more audilble but not drown the mix. I insert it on 50% of my mixes on the master sum.
Great musical EQ. It's all you need in a mastering chain to tweak. It does what you would expect, but really well and is completely transparent.
Easy to use and it sounds great, instantly hear the difference.
I used to use this a lot but then I bought the Manley.
It's a fabulous piece of equipment but I'm running out of DSP with the Manley taking up the whole front room of the house.
Pity, it works so well.
I suppose I'll wake up from my dream state and go back to this.
IF YOU WANT GREAT SOUNDING MASTERS WITH FANTASTIC CLARITY THEN THIS IS A MUST HAVE. OUTSTANDING.
This is another power user EQ like the Cambridge, yet has it's own distinct sound and abilities. Good for everything, but you'll have to work it!
it's precision. VERY precision! :) must have for mastering engineers!
AHHH i hate UA! They keep making me open my wallet!
I'm almost out of moths.
This is the only plug that i have reviewed but have not purchased, this is solely because at the moment i've spent me last pennys on the Neve 1081.
So what do i like about this? It's subtle! it's so subtle that it could get away with having three b's and still never need to pronounce either.
For what it's intended for it fills the position to a T, gentle EQ's of a final mix.
Without doubt the next plug i shall buy as soon as my wallet recovers.
No doubt a more helpful review will come at that time too!
