FabFilter Pro Q
The is the main EQ that i use on everything. It does everything an EQ needs to to help me get the results I am after. The display is super clear and so is the analyser. I also really like how you can treat middle and outside frequencies, really good when you want to make space for vocals and kick drums for example. If I am looking for a clean, easy to use accurate EQ I always go to this
It’s free, and its amazing. By far the best spectrum analyser I have ever used. I have it always on display, even when I am just writing. It’s is very detailed and very accurate. It makes it very easy to see what frequencies might be a problem and where problems might be in your mix. I also use it to check where all the harmonics in individual parts are coming through and even for balancing volume.
I always use this on every vocal. It has great presets as starting points but sometimes I just start from scratch. IT has everything you need to process vocals, EQ, De Esser, Compressor, Saturation, Harmony etc etc. My favourite is its reverb tho. I use it on all vocals straight on the track as an insert. Sometime I use other EQ’s, compressors etc but I always use its reverb on vocals. Another neat trick is it can do parallel compression without any tricky aux tracks that need to be set up.
