  • PassEQ

    by JH Studio
    SPL makes some great products. This is one of them. It's like having a Pultec on steroids. Put the MEQ-5 & the EQP-1A together, add M/S and a few more bells & whistles and you'll have the PassEQ. It's a great emulation of their awesome hardware unit.
  • Passeq

    by John DeLorme
    I have never used the Passeq hardware unit, but I have used many a passive hardware EQ's. True to their form, this digitally modeled passive EQ is super smooth and sounds awesome. I love the top and middle ranges. You can easily add a nice sparkle and clarity with the high range, and you can sculpt the mids in a very natural and musical sounding way. If I had one complaint, some of the settings are hard to read... a selective zoom feature would've been nice... not a deal breaker though. I'm glad to have the Passeq plugin in my arsenal, would definitely recommend it.

    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.
  • SPL Passeq

    SPL Passeq happened to be a surpricing gentle and therefore a wery impressing and carefree tool to finalise single tracks or buss or even the whole mix.
    I seem to use it a lot.
  • Eq

    by DukeTt
    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!

    It is very transparent, and also includes the mid-side option (important for me), this plugin is one of my favorites, I use it in mastering. Greetings to all. :)
  • 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.

    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.
