Excellent Starter & Finisher

This eq is official. The reason I'm saying that is because I have an analog eq and this eq has almost the same effect when I cut or boost. I can't believe how real it sounds to be software in my opinion. I did catch it on sale but it's worth every penny even with the regular price. The distortion is crazy you should be able to get a great sound on any track to me. Try it you'll see. Keep it coming sweet water!!!!!!

Scheps the ****.

Great Tool for tone and character.

Scheps 73

This is a great plugin, I use it all the time. It's simple to use so you don't have to waste time trying to figure it out. I go on YouTube first to get other peoples thoughts before I buy any plugin. You can use it on each track (mono mode if you wish) or your main out (stereo). Another good thing is it's not a CPU hog.

Thick low end, smooth high end.

A lot of people talk about plugins adding colour to audio. This is one of the few I've found that actually does. I generally use this on a mix bus to add some smooth high end (a lot of eq's fail on the highs). The low end harmonics it adds is very nice too if you want to add some umph to a mix!

Immaculate emulation

I'll make this review short, sweet and to the point. You need to get this plug-in. At last a 1073 that anyone can afford. Adds life, depth, clarity and presence to anything you put it on. It's as good as the real deal.
