I'll definitely be upgrading. I have other dynamic EQ's but since Pro-Q2 is my default PT eq it's nice to have it with their easy to use interface, already swapped it out on the song started yesterday with dynamic cuts in place of the statics I had on some drums, very nice. I thought the 96dB slope was insane but the brickwall is nuts.
I’ll be getting this definitely. I have pretty much limited myself to UAD and FabFilter as I find it better to dig deep into a smaller set of plugins. I checked my FF account and I can upgrade for €52 so its a no-brainer. I see I can get the L2 for the same but I only use the Pro-L to turn up my final summed bounces to -14 LUFS ... so I’m not sure I need it
And yes, their demos are awesome!
EDIT: Just bought it. Got it for €42 ex VAT in the end as an upgrade from Q2 :-) Been messing with it for an hour or so, very impressive. The overlap analytics are cool and the brickwall cut has zero artefacts. I have an organ DI in this track and the player is doing bass lines and chord stabs. I was able to separate those out and duck the bass a db or two on the kick hits and only put reverb on the stabs... very useful!
I’m so excited in just the sheer value this upgrade offers. Sometimes I’d use two de-essers and then an EQ (usually ProQ2) on a vocal. Now I can just use ProQ3. Or doing my bass guitar EQing and helping that one unruly low note not peek out without resorting to weird techniques. Or cymbals in room mics. Or that one freq in twinkly tele riffs.
There's a 'trick' folks on the purple site have been talking about and I'm a little floored by it. Find your problem area, create a node and then hold shift when you reduce the gain. The static gain will come down but the dynamic ring around the gain knob will stay locked at unity. The result is some upward expansion just on the transients while the static attenuation stays static. For one reason or another, it results in amazingly transparent sculpting. It sounds like you magically just remove bad resonance. I pulled awkward midrange roominess out of an acoustic guitar track with a huge cut (but the upward expansion dynamically doing its thing) and I couldn't believe how much it improved things.
