    SPL Passeq
    by seb
    Really love this transparent eq.
    The possibility to unlink after the result is near what I want, and acheive eache side sepperatly is really grate to me.
    I also like that some freq adjustment can only change by more intensity and some other only by less intensity. That make the work really direct and no turn round and round to try other way. Make fast choice and assume it in the sound make my work more direct, fun, and help me to do better sound.

    Great eq, not for intricate work but gives sounds a little something extra when pushed at certain frequencies. Useful on summed busses in particular.
    Awesome GUI and functionality, only wish for an enlarging/ zoom feature to read digits more clearly.... but that's being quite fussy!

    SPL Passeq
    by Søren MD
    I own several SPL hardware products but finances don't allow for the purchase of the Passeq. I have rented the Passeq hardware version several times and I am always impressed with the fidelity and mid range control. I did not hesitate to purchase the plugin version as I figured that, at minimum, 90% similarity to the hardware version would be more than enough to justify adding this software to my permanent template. I have been extremely pleased with this product since it does indeed reproduce the same mid range control that the weighty hardware version produces.
    Mix bus duties or summed return equalization are the Passeq strengths and it has become indispensable in my template.

    Improves the low-end
    by Max
    The first couple of months (if not a whole year) after I bought SPL Passeq I didn't know how to use it, because it has a different user interface than what I was used to and M/S processing was also new to me. Now I get it and use it whenever I do mastering. The low end get much better now, but its important to check your masters with subwoofers, because if you master with speakers or headphones that don't play low frequencies below 100hz very well, then its easy to over do it, like I did, because SPL Passeq really improves the low frequencies, but just don't add too much. I don't know if SPL Passeq is an improvement to bx_digital v3 (also M/S EQ), so I use both.

    SPL Passeq
    by Jack
    It takes a while to get good with this comp but when you do the sound can't be beat. Will it do surgical? No. Is it musical? Yes. Even with all controls at neutral there appears to be some gain to this; need to back off the output levels a dB or so. Would love to see the channel processing controls be a true mute/ solo instead of just removing the processing. The numbers are hard to read on the controls - a popup flag with the control position would be nice.

    There should be seven stars with five being really really really good because this EQ is the best EQ I've ever used hands down!
    As a software EQ there is nothing that touches it in the passive area. I have just finished doing over 60 35 to 45 minute audio products and I've used Passeq as the master bus EQ on every single product because...Well just because!! Hahahaha

    Musical EQ with M/S
    by Finck von Finckenstein
    I have been using the Passeq plug-in for several years now. I still love it and it is always my first choice for difficult recordings. The selection of frequencies is wise, making this a very musical passive EQ.
    Don't let your inner engineer get frightened by the huge amount of knobs: once you take a closer look you will find everything to be laid out very logically.
    The M/S functionality is making this superior to the hardware version and does a great job when you have to give back transparency to not-so-well-done stereo mixes. This is a marvelous tool.
