Re: Sonimus Stone4EQ
Hey folks, just following up with my results from demoing this plugin, which has become my new favorite console-style EQ.
With nearly everything I tried it on -- drums, bass, guitars -- the Sonimus just sounded better to me than my previous go-to, the Boz Hoser. In most cases, I could get a more open and natural sound out of the Sonimus than with the Boz.
And that was without engaging the filters or the Drive control past its default. These features make it even more compelling -- the Drive is very analog-sounding, not harsh at all. The filters are VERY smooth, as with Sonimus' other plugins like Sweetone. Having all these in one plugin, while consuming negligible CPU, seals the deal.
Not knocking the Boz plugin -- it still sounds really good and has some nice features, including VU meters and the clever graph superimposed on the knobs. But Sonimus has knocked it out of the park yet again.
This EQ is billed as part of a "Satson Series," which could mean more SSL-style plugins down the road. Looking foward to those.
