I've had the chance to use this on a few projects, and own both the FateQ, and AlexB's MWC Pro (sans EQ). This is by far my most favorite N**e console/program to date. Its incredibly smooth, detailed, and musical. While compared to Michael's last program release (the Bogen) that I found isn't necessarily great on every channel in the mix for me I felt it had an indispensable and unique place to add real electricity to synths that need presence and a little bit of smooth bite that I can't find in any other program.
This isn't the case with this, I was able to use it on every channel using both the mixer settings for Bus, individual inputs, and master bus along with this using my only eq to really get to know this program in and out. I have to say not only was it perfect for the material I was working on, but the eq will make its way into future productions as a roll your own mix bus full of A*I, N**e, and various tube stages. A friend of mine commented on the great stereo depth, and smooth musical quality this program brought to the mix (he is an all digital aficionado, but amazing musician/engineer) that he hadn't heard before. Its these types of programs that will get our mixes and Nebula big recognition.
So far after testing this, the Fate Q, 115 (N**e design), and AlexB's this is used about 80% of the time (console and EQ wise) when I want the N**e sound on a track or channel. I find myself going between AlexB's A*I, N-TEN-AT4, FateQ input, and Bogen (in this order of use) for a the past few mixes for console color.
Absolutely indispensable program.
We truly are blessed to have all these amazing tools at our disposal and the EQ alone compliments the ones I already own and use daily AT4, Mammoth, DocFear, 115, NiceEQ, PeakQ.
I find myself saying on a mix I completed last night for someone, boy if I didn't have this EQ I'm not sure what I'd do. I said that for my top five listed above, and really am not sure what I'd do without it, the 115, Mammoth, DocFear, & NiceQ.
This is just getting crazy here!
