Well, now you have 2 EQs. One suited for mastering purposes (W495STB) and another for mixing (W495B). Both look identical on the outside but the sound is different (different bandwidths, slopes, no input transformer in the mastering version, etc.). Both were sampled in stereo which as you know is a great bonus for the stereo image (He has two of each. Serviced and all). The lathe mastering console was also sampled in stereo, even the filters and the inputs (vintage and clean). It has 5 mixbus presets now with different tone, character and sound.RJHollins wrote:I do wonder if the Gain stepping can have smaller increments for the GMC-EQ in the proposed next version.
Totally agree with you, Mercado, on the musicality.
Also ... just how much 'better' can Alex do this?
I know [and use MFC], and how good it sounds ... but even the current GMC does something so nice. None of the other consoles can touch it. Maybe because of style, instrumentation, mix, that determines ... but for my 2 latest sessions, GMC [and EQ] took them to a beautiful, musical level. The depth, full controlled bottom end, and ability to both clear the MIDs and tame at the same time. Just love it.
So yes, I think he did it better now
