by Whit from BrooklynI just wanted to chime in because i think there is a real misunderstanding with this eq. It took me a bit to figure it out myself, as Maag Audio doesnt really explain this unit in much detail.

This eq is not something you would throw up at the beginning of a chain. It is VERY broad and therefor if you are trying to "grab" something or dig in and transform a sound this is not the tool.
What this eq is brilliant at is being at the END of a chain, and for carving instruments around each other.
It goes on top of the cake, not in the batter ;)
Two examples where i personally use the Maag EQ4 on every session ...
1. last insert on lead vocals - smooth bright top end & allows for final tuning of vocals without ruining the sound you have. Need to dip out a little 200 but dont want to mess with the sound otherwise? No prob. Its super subtle and gets the job done clean.
2. Carving Drum Stem & Bass Stem around each other - I only have a stereo pair of EQ 4's at the moment, so my workaround is using a Waves Qclone to find the settings and then print DRM & BASS stems individually ... but I have never had such a wonderfully easy time of making the bottom and bottom mids glue. Again, this wont let you ruin what you have ... just do small mirror dips & bumps (i.e. +1db @ 40hz on Drums ... -1db @ 40hz on Bass) and on up into the mids.
Lastly its probably worth noting that while all bands interact, the Air Gain is separate from the rest of the bands ... so for instance if you turn up the Air Gain, love the sound, but its too hot, you can roll all the other bands down an equal amount and the curve will remain exactly the same but just a lower volume.
Great tool. Wish I had a whole rack of them.
Enjoy. close [-]
Much a do about nothing
by Ryan Mowdy from OKC, OKOverall the Maag is halfway decent. It's very easy to use and to adjust the settings on the bands. However for the price, I would have to say its not worth it. The Harrison EQ's are much better and ch... read more [+]eaper even the API 550A would win a battle against this EQ. In conclusion, I'd say that the EQ4 doesn't allow a whole lot of slack to work with unlike others but it is still a good EQ. close [-]
