    Wow! This looks very nice! I also read it will be VST2 and 3 and 64bit!

    commercial plugin developers are pushing the panic button right now!

    VLADG you’re a genious man
    please please make this different authentic and unique cuz there’s already a 10000 good eqs out there

    • vladgsound 2014/03/19 at 09:20

      All digitals equalizers are the same, you know 🙂 Just kidding.
      Seriously, the difference is so subtle that most people just can’t hear it. So most people will just enjoy the nice GUI.
      And I forgot to tell. The plugin doesn’t have spectrum analyzer and frequency curve plot. And it’s not hardware modelled.

      But this tiny plugin sounds just great!

        Coming from Tokyo Dawn Labs, we know this EQ will be proudly digital. I love Feedback Compressor II because it compliments well with all the others compressors one can have, because it sounds different and does something else that the others just don’t do – soundwise.

        Coming from TDL and VoS and you I’m 100% sure this EQ will be awesome = but what will it do that current VST EQs can’t accomplish?

        Or will it just sound better because of internal HDR processing?

        Love from Buenos Aires

        About current VST EQs. It’s all matter of taste. If you do like the sound and workflow (and UI too), you use the plugin. If not, choose an alternative one. For example I like UAD Pultec & BootEQ MKII a lot (as gerenic tone shaping EQs), but I prefer this plugin now.
        About HDR stuff. Can’t comment about it.

    I will be interested in hearing more about the differences in the models. American, British, German and Russian.

    • vladgsound 2014/03/21 at 00:19

      They have different curve shapes. American is the most multipurpose, German is very gentle and works well for mastering, British adds some “bite” and very good for mixing tasks and Soviet is the one to experiment with. It’s very interesting to adjust sound in one model and then cycle through all models just to check the sound from another perspectives.

    That’s very interesting vladg.

    But what about this then ” About HDR stuff. Can’t comment about it.” ?!?!?#!$@$?! I know it’s VoS technique but really what do you mean?

    • vladgsound 2014/03/21 at 12:29

      Check the latest VoS post, it doesn’t contain anything about HDR in SlickEQ. Next, I haven’t tried SlickHDR yet, that’s why I can’t comment about HDR in sound. BTW, my opinion about HDR in photography is negative, it completely kills macrodynamics of the image (but yes, enhances microdynamics at the same time).

      • Ezequiel Morfi 2014/03/21 at 22:35

        Coming to think about it, you’re 100% right VLADG. I just assumed that SlickEQ was a HDR plugin from the slick series, right after SlickHDR.
        So if it’s not then back to the original question; what would you say it’s special about this EQ?

        Just to make it clear = I love your work and I think Vladgsound VoS and TDL are fucking geniouses and I’m not here to criticize, just push around as a demanding user =)

      • vladgsound 2014/03/21 at 23:07

        First, this plugin is very simple to use and while it looks like some kind of hardware EQ emulation it’s not an emulation at all. BTW, it’s free from usual hardware emulation restrictions, for example HF knob has continuous control from 500 Hz to 40 kHz which gives great flexibility.
        Next, the plugin has specific saturation algorithms which are very subtle but at the same time they do sound like high quality gear.
        And the last, the plugin has gain-compensation feature which make the usage of EQ very nontrivial. For example, I found that instead of cutting a frequency I can achieve the same by boosting another frequency and vice versa.

        So these are the main features: simple but flexible, specific saturation, auto-gain.

      • vladgsound 2014/03/21 at 23:40

        Check this animated gif! It’s HF shelf +18.0 dB sweep from 40 kHz to 500 Hz and back with auto-gain mode on (“American” model selected)

    very nice design I really appreciate your work

  10. Sam 2014/03/22 at 18:02

    Every plugin should have an auto gain compensation feature! Even though I know it’s not easily achievable depending on the processes going on.

    Can’t wait to try this SlickEQ.

    • Sam 2014/03/22 at 18:03

      PS : the HF animation is scary O_O

      • Ezequiel Morfi 2014/03/26 at 05:36

        yeah! I wonder what auto-gain can be useful for, I never used that feature before …? (and i’ve been eq’ing for years you know)

  11. sokr 2014/03/23 at 03:42

    i don’t know if anyone cares but i would really like to see an eq gui that is vertical in shape so it fits better in the “session” view of ableton etc etc so far don’t think one exists
