This EQ is pretty nice compared to the other vintage EQs because it's very versatile. Because of that, I found more usages with this plugin than I have with their other vintage EQ plugins. You can choose a wide variety of sounds thanks to its versatility, and despite it being a three band EQ that is limited to notched frequencies, it can work nicely on vocals, guitar, bass and even drums.
Waves plugins are some of the best out there, bar none. For one, they're cross platform. For a Mac user, that means the world. I'm always trying to support companies that support Mac, and Waves has been pretty good about that since the whole Intel switch. I've used these in Logic without any problems. Although they're 32 bit plugins, Logic will add a bridge to allow you to use them in a 64 bit environment as to not limit you to the amount of ram you can utilize. On top of that, these things are rock solid. I've never had a crash with Waves plugins at all.
This is one of the more useful EQs that Waves has created, in terms of vintage EQs, at least. I found quite a few usages for this, where as some of the other ones were a bit geared more towards classic rock. Applying these to some slightly overdriven guitars give it a real vintage-esque EQ sound that can make the mix really pop out. Using it on vocals can give it all kinds of neat effects, too. Try it out.
I'm currently running the Waves Ltd. API 550A on my home system which consists of a Mac Book Pro and Pro Tools LE 8. The computer is a lap top and has a 2.2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 4 GB of RAM. I've been running Pro Tools LE 8 with a Digi 002R audio interface or a Digidesign Micro Box if I'm on the go. This isn't the type of plug-in that's going to kill your processing power by any means, but it will of course take up a small amount and more with each instance. It's hard to say how well it would run on any given system, but on mine I haven't had any troubles with it.
The Waves Ltd. API 550A is a nice little plug-in, as it sounds clean and is very easy to use. It wouldn't be the first plug-in that I'd go to for equalization, but it still sounds very good and can be very useful. I've used a real 550A many times before and can't really say that this has the same sound. Even so, it's good enough to use and it's definitely nice to have it around. The Waves API Collection in general is a very nice bundle of plug-ins and I'd definitely recommend scoping it out if you're looking to add some high quality plug-ins to your DAW.
