We've all experimented with a variety of EQ's through the years and we all have our top 5 that we always go to for certain applications (example: API 550a for guitars, FabFilter Pro-Q 2 for 'Shaping' whole frequency sections, Neve 1084 for vocals, etc...) the 'ubk 1 EQ' by Kush Audio is definitely on my list of: "Top 5 EQ's that I can't live without...!!!" + it also has one of the best compressors built-in to its design and a 'Head Room' knob at the front end of the signal path that makes this unit a work of MAGIC..! Like all Kush Audio products, It has unique sonic character; it's in a class of its own...!
It sounds great as a compressor, but if you buy the Kush plug-ins without doing the monthly plan, it's nearly impossible to transfer them, once you get a new computer. I want to give them three stars for this, but their user agreement is the best I've ever seen, so they get an extra star for that.
Judging solely by his videos, Kush hardware is some of the best on the market. This outlandish statement seems backed up by the fact that they use them at Electric Lady Studios.
