Are there any Linear Phase EQ Libraries available?

I'd like to start using Linear Phase EQs for mastering. Any Nebula stuff out there that is Linear Phase?

as far as i know linearphase eqing is totally a digital technique, so i dont see a reason to have that kind of programs in nebula, when you can do it with dedicated plugins. and a lot of bands at the same time too.

but dunno

a good linear phase eq needs a big predelay. At the moment nebula is limiting predelay to 1.5 milliseconds. We could "unlock" this feature; from what we measured it's not necessary for almost all analog equalizers. If you need a linearphase eq there are plenty of choices in the digital domain.

Agree. PSP Neon HR: cheap and powerfull. Or Algorithmix, more expensive but incredible good (for me the best).

lp10 would be the best if it didn't crash cubase for me all the time! $20 give away price.

"After several days of methodical listening, I found that my ears liked the sound of the DDMF LP10 the most. Especially in the way it did not start to sound grainy and ear shredding in the top end. Some of the ones that people really highly recommend like the PSP NEON sound questionable in the top when you start to boost. Also, the UI was an important factor. I found many of them trying and tiring on my eyes and on my mind while operating them. I love the simplicity and the smooth clear layout and graphics of the DDMF LP10. The LP10 had something magical in the top end when setting the phase to minimum rather than linear. The LP10 sounded nicer in the top end than the EQIIPro by DDMF. I also liked the DDMF ColorEQ but not so much for mastering. It has a very analog EQ sound down in the bottom end for your bass and kick drum though. The LP10 works better for mastering and overall did the least amount of degradation to my audio when processing with it. "

well there's someone else's opinion to make me feel a little more validated... don't know why i bothered quoting it, just felt good somehow? :roll:

Sort of like the affordable version of algorithmix red 8-) though I got an mail they're beta testing a new eq but don't know when it will be released.

Nice to hear other's views on this.

I've been using the 'NuGen Audio SEQ2' equalizer.

I can't say its the BEST ... but it seems the LEAST annoying for me to use :|
