GREAT MACHINE!

I love all the pre-sets, but I found this plugin VERY HEAVY on my CPU. I still use it but ONLY for special occasions. Sounds frickin GREAT! Wish I had the hardware version! This plug is PRIME for the Apollo or hardware UA interface. The native hog's my CPU. JS.

Sound quality is good, but the UAD support service experience is terrible!

There's a problem with MIDI Learn; the Output Knob doesn't work. I've reported and provided system information to the customer service team, but they said they couldn't reproduce the problem and froze my ticket.

Remember to use the Trial version of UADx to ensure everything works before making a purchase!

Beautiful sounding & very Elegant EQ

As an owner of the Massivo Mastering version, I can only say that this plug in is very very close to the real hardware unit. May a 10% less than the character of the hardware, but just really close in every character. The option to avoid the transformers by using the jack outs on the hardware unit I'm missing in the plugin. But at the end; This plugin is killer !!!
Mus admit, I just love it, its just easy to dial in on a bus or entire mix...a really game changer!

Great plugin

Great, musical, plugin, but it has a learning curve for newer engineers and mixers. Not a simple plugin, but sounds amazing.

Very efficient and obvious improvement on my main Output Bus

Too many knobs for me maybe… But very efficient with useful presets that I immediately adopted on the Output Bus of my Cubase mixing Template !!

The last touch

I'm not making professional mixes, but I like my home recordings having a good sound. I sing and play acoustic and electric guitar. I like to spend my spare time experimenting and trying to reach a well balanced result. This equalization has a lot of options and good presets.

A real Must-Have

This is the plugin that really gives you the extra step on your Mix/Master even when you think you're done. Amazing.

Use it in every mix

This plugin easily makes my track sound great. It includes boost/cut/leave out, which makes it very convenient to hear the impacts of every adjustment. Just turn the knobs and listen then adjust accordingly and you'll never ruin your mix.

Clean

I was debating if I needed this plugin for eq, and I’m glad I purchased it as it achieves a balance and clean sound that I haven’t been able to achieve with any of my other eq’s.

Cut and Boost

Very Musical. The cut and boost to different frequencies makes this plug-in work great on about anything you put it on. I have found myself bouncing back and forth between it and the Pultec EQ on almost every vocal I have processed lately. Nice tube vibe.
