On the one hand a good sounding plugin, on the other hand there meanwhile are a lot of comparable plugins existing, so that I doubt, that many people will seriously need another one like this. High band frequency selection looks strange to me. Overlapping Mid and High band down to eg. 2 - 3 kHz would have been the better choice in my opinion, as it is, High band has not really too much practical use for me, I personally can hardly even hear 9 kHz, much less everything higher, so for me this is rather a 2 band equalizer. 27 and 40 kHz are already ultrasonic, what should somebody seriously equalize with these - for humans not even audible - bands, the echolocation of some bats?

I usually do not give any recommendations her, but Analog Obsession also offers some other - in my opinion - nice EQ's. Some with mid/side option, others without.

I don't mean to offend, but if you are having trouble hearing 9khz, how do you decide when a track needs HF air (12kHz and beyond)?

For me it's the other way around. I can only use 64bit

It's seriously time to stop whining and upgrade your system. You can't have new technology on an old system, and no one is going to backtrack to cater to you. It's the equivalent of writing to Spotify that they won't send you a cassette track of your favorite songs, it just isn't going to happen. Time to put on the big boy pants, come out of your mom's basement, and buy a computer made this decade. I can understand analog elitism, but whining that new plugins don't run on Windows 95 is just super cringe. Also just use J Bridge like the rest of the planet to run your outdated plugins. /endrant

Some of us have invested a lot of money in ourhumble and meagre 32 bit systems.

There are no ratings here yet because most people don't know who Peter Baxandall was. That's why nobody knows the importance of your software. So I recommend readers to take a look at Wikipedia.

That's because most Amp builders care about Baxandall, the analog circuit is beauty in it's simplicity, but in software it doesn't mean much.

Of course, I assume that the author really tried to recreate a Baxandall filter sound and didn't just write the name on it :)
