Very nice EQ, demanding on CPU

This EQ is packed with useful controls. It sounds really nice, like any emulation of this "N" type would be expected to sound. The preamp drive is very nice. It's not always the first EQ I reach for, but it is my favorite of any of the "N" types of emulations I have in my plugin folder. By default, this EQ runs in oversampling mode, so don't be alarmed when you see how hard it hits your CPU meter. When put in Lowest Latency mode, CPU usage drops to what you'd expect from any plugin of this type. I haven't noticed a huge difference sonically between the two modes, so I keep it in Lowest Latency mode, as I do with most of the T-Racks stuff that work this way. Overall very happy to have this in my arsenal.
