Review: Sonible Smart:EQ+

We’ve all been here. A track presents itself with problematic frequencies and resonances but no matter how much tweaking is done, just won’t fit in a mix. Maybe you’re a professional in a fast-paced audio environment who needs precision on the go. Maybe you’re new to the mixing game and need a little help learning what to look for when EQing tracks. Or… maybe you’re just a lazy engineer. There’s no shame in any of that; Sonible Smart:EQ+ has you covered. This EQ uses intelligent algorithms in its “smart” bandsRead More
The Omega Preamp and Transformers are the perfect combination (Review HERE) and I think the 458a is quickly becoming my favorite go-to transformer. The 458a adds a distinct smooth but aggressive bite, perfect for electric guitars and vocals. Now the 458a has been upgraded with better CPU performance and an oversampling on / off switch. As of version 1.0.5, Omega 458a uses as little as 25% as much CPU as previous versions, and can also be run as a zero-latency plugin. We added a session-wide ‘oversampling OFF’ mode that lets you easilyRead More

We actually own a pair of Electra 500’s (two EVL “evil evaluation” units) and love how no matter how you turn the knobs, everything sounds great. Unfortunately I don’t have enough space or money to have a rack full of 32 of them (I can dream) so I use the plugin version a lot (review HERE). The problem is they used to bog a system down if you used a lot. Due to some retooling, the Electra has just updated to use less CPU. Im going to go throw 6 onRead More
