I have spent most of my time with the red version of the LinearPhase PEQ and can honestly say that it is the best sounding software EQ that I have ever heard!Zen Mastering Vancouver
I am putting the new Red vari-slope low and high shelves through their paces on the new Chaka Kahn CD. The depth and punch of the lows and the air and silkiness of the highs are by far the best by far in my experience. A new benchmark.
The new Chaka Khan CD was mastered here using the new Red CS low and high shelves as the exclusive EQ for the bass and treble. This has now become my default high and low EQ. Chaka said the CD sounded incredible and her producer said the lows and highs were "amazing."www.arfdigital.com
The LinearPhase PEQ Red and Orange are absolutely the best by far. I compared them to the Waves Masters Linear Phase EQ, and while the Waves Masters Linear EQ did an okay job, there was still some coloration and sound character variations involved on some of the other instruments in the stereo mix with the Waves Linear EQ, but with the PEQ Red I am able to focus in on a particular instrument in a stereo mix and make it sound the way I want it to sound, and without even the slightest change in the sound or character on any of the other instruments in the stereo mix. I find the PEQ Red to be extremely useful for me personally on jazz drum tracks where I most always mic with a pair of overhead omni's only, which is the best way to mic drums for jazz. As good as this mic'ing technique is for great sounding jazz drums, quite often I would like to be able to bring out more stick definition on the ride cymbals without having to resort to using nylon tip drum sticks. I much prefer the sound of 100% wooden sticks. I have never been able to do this without having a negative effect on the sound of the snare drum, plus all of the other eq's that I have tried on jazz drum tracks also change the character of sound and pitch of the ride cymbals while trying to bring out more stick definition. While being able to bring out more stick definition with all of these other EQ's, there is always the major sacrifice of changing the character of sound and pitch of my beautiful Zildjian Constantinople cymbals. With the PEQ Red I am able to bring out a great deal of more stick definition, and much to my surprise there is no added coloration nor change in the sound or pitch of the ride cymbals, nor is there any change in the sound of the snare drum, toms, or kick drum, nor any of the other components in the drum set as well. Much to my delight I am simply able to provide more stick definition to my ride cymbals, period. I am extremely impressed!www.bardstownaudio.com
I must tell you that I am absolutely ecstatic with the results that I have been achieving with the linear phase EQ’s. Mastering is a very delicate process where the mastering engineer faces the challenge of compromising in order to achieve the best balance between the original recording and the mastered version. Both Red and Orange EQ’s have absolutely replaced every other EQ that I own and have given me the ability and freedom to perform challenging frequency adjustment tasks in every project that I master no matter how challenging or what genre it is. They are extremely transparent and musical enabling me to deliver excellent results in the most demanding projects including High Resolution ones. Their ability to resolve with accuracy, clarity and musicality, frequency ranges in complex music passages is astonishing, allowing the mastering engineer to focus on the project and forget the artefacts that are usually associated with this kind of processors. Their performance in Sequoia V8.1 in complex projects and in different sections of the program (object, track, master section) is remarkable.Digisound Mastering Australia
...The Algorithmix PEQ red/orange plug-ins totally rock and either equal or surpass many top hardware units. Those plug-ins will take you all the way there, my friend. My Massive Passive has been sitting on the sidelines as 2nd string since getting the PEQs. It loses every time when I compare it to the PEQs on the same material. Plus, they are an incredible bargain since the number you use is only limited by you machine's horsepower.
With Red and Orange Linear-Phase Equalizers Algorithmix has created two stunning Software EQs convincing with extremely high precision and superb sound results. Especially in the high and the low end, the Algorithmix duo easily surpasses its competitors with accuracy and transparency one can easily hear.www.online-mastering.com
Algorithmix Red and Orange are our tools of choice, especially for difficult eq'ing tasks: The equalized signal sounds open, musical and transparent, never over-processed.
In our opinion, these plug-ins set a new benchmark in the field of digital sound equalization. Period.
