The studio that I work at has the Nomad Factory British Tone EQ BQ2S and the full Blue Tubes Equalizer Pack running on all of our systems. The main system that we have it on is Pro Tools HD (like the others), and runs on a Mac Pro desk top computer that has dual 2.66 Ghz Intel Xeon processors and 10 GB of RAM. This is more than adequate to run this plug-in, as it really doesn’t seem to take up much processing power at all.
The Nomad Factory British Tone EQ BQ2S is overall a great little EQ plug-in, perfect for boosting or cutting frequencies across the board. It doesn’t offers as much flexibility as you’d get with some more parametric, but it’s still adequate enough to get the job done more times than not. I use it a pretty good amount if I’m EQing inside the box, as I find it to be warmer sounding than the stock EQ plug-ins in Pro Tools. The Blue Tubes Equalizer Pack bundle as a whole is just $200 and contains six different EQ plug-ins of all kinds, so if you’re looking to expand your EQ plug-in palette, this is the perfect way to do it!
