One of the best sounding plugin EQ I have come across, sounds really musical while remaining transparent. The Air Band is probably one of the first things I bring in on my master channel EQ before Eqing individual tracks.
The Maag has become my go to kick drum EQ. I feel that the tone shaping it allows for is unmatched by any other equalizer, hardware or plugin. It's a totally unique design that is as musical as it gets. Having used the hardware, I can personally attest that the work Brainworx/PA has done in cloning it is 100% accurate, and that makes me super happy! Being able to track with the plugin with the UAD Apollo is also an amazingly creative way to get the sound I want, at the tracking phase where it needs to sound correct. Couldn't live without this plugin anymore.
This EQ is simply like no other. I use the air band constantly, brightening up vocals, drums, and the mix buss. It's crisp and truly open sounds up without being harsh. The sub and low frequency bands are perfect for adding well-defined weight to the kick drum.
