    The installation is done it without problems?

    Installation ... nothing to report, is designed by one of the REAPER dev ... In other words, it is ROCK SOLID

    Have you encountered any incompatibilities?

    No incompatibility in REAPER 4, Win7 Pro 64 bit

    It is STABLE. There's other kidney has to say ... CPU Light ... Cepeda careful use of oversampling that can be applied to the cuffs if BUSS MASTER

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 1 year

    I am among those who think EQ is an EQ ... All the EQ on the market are good and usable with differences that are often due to factors other than the equalization itself as the developers to add ... well ... sound better than the next (adding distortion, volume, noise ...)

    This small, however, a special EQ to more than interesting! is the oversampling!

    related to its hi-shelve ca becomes a joy!

    I do not is only one way:

    I press the button and oversampling I go Hi-shelve ...

    It's just magic!

    Treble of a smooth and transparent amazing! A breath of fresh air!

    I never knew such behavior found on another EQ (and I have tried many ... WAVES, UAD, Sonnox, etc ...)

    In short, this plug is that I do it, but I could not separate myself! Must have one of the OH, HH and voice

    Another interesting parameter is that it does not close by oversampling at its output (at least in REAPER)

    So if you plug it stuck behind another (eg a compressor), it's like adding an anti-aliasing options to your compressor! and it sounds divinely!

    The Stillwell Audio 1973 EQ is a three band equalizer with a high pass filter as well. The plug-in pays tribute to the Neve 1073 equalizers, borrowing the frequencies found on these classic EQs. I didn't have any issues installing the plug-in as it was easy enough to download from their website and follow the instructions. The whole process took only a few minutes as I didn't have any problems at all. The interface of the software is incredibly simple to follow as well. The three main EQ bands have parameters for gain and sliders to choose a few different fixed frequencies, except for the high shelf which is stationary at 12 KHz. The high pass filter has four fixed frequencies to choo…

The three main EQ bands have parameters for gain and sliders to choose a few different fixed frequencies, except for the high shelf which is stationary at 12 KHz. The high pass filter has four fixed frequencies to choose from, and there is also an oversample switch an overall output gain leveler. I've never needed to look at the manual, so I don't know how helpful it might be.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    I'm running the Stillwell Audio 1973 EQ plug-in on a Mac Book Pro that has a 2.2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 4 GB of RAM. I run the plug-in in Pro Tools LE 7.4, but understand that since Stillwell Audio does not offer this plug-in in RTAS form, you need the Fxpansion VST to RTAS converter in order to use this in Pro Tools! As far as performance goes, the 1973 EQ won't take up much processing space at all, as it runs at a very low level. I can't imagine anyone having trouble running it who already has a decent enough system to run plug-ins on in the first place.

    OVERALL OPINION

    My favorite part about the Stillwell Audio 1973 EQ and Stillwell Audio in general is the price! They offer up some nice sounding plug-ins at a seriously low price that you can download straight for their website. This certainly isn't the cleanest or most detailed plug-in equalizer plug-in that I've used, but it will get the job done for basic tone shaping for sure. The fixed frequencies are picked well since it is after the 1073, so that's certainly not something that you need to be concerned with. All in all, I'd definitely encourage those reading this and any bit somewhat interested in the 1973 EQ to at least check out the demo, and the plug-in is even cheap enough that you could buy it and it wouldn't be a big deal if you didn't like it, but I think you will anyway...

    No installation problems.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    Very low resource consumption with a Core 2 Duo E4600 and 2 GB Ram.

    OVERALL OPINION

    The 1973 is very interesting for its high-frequency band. It's worth to buy the plug-in just for this reason regardless of the other possibilities.

    It allows you to brighten the sound without making it aggressive.

    The low-frequency band can also be interesting.

    But I found some weak points:

    - The mid-frequency band is virtually unusable because of its too narrow Q factor which produces unpleasant resonances pretty fast.

    - It's impossible to accurately adjust the lo…

    - It's impossible to accurately adjust the low cut since it only has fixed values.

    This product would be worth a 10 considering its magic high shelving filter, but I only give it a 7 because of the useless mid range and the inflexible low cut.
