    Default Audiophiles (Traktor EQ)

    Anybody not using the "classic" EQ in Traktor?

    I just finished mapping my BCR and now began trying out the various EQs and think I like the Xone the best (the only one with 2 mid sections).

    What EQ are the rest of you Traktor users using? Which one do find the best for fixing not-so-great audio quality tracks and overall?

    Any opinions about the overall quality of Traktor EQ from experienced Audiophiles compared to the rest of the digital deck programs out there? I know Deckadance hosts VST plugin and so that opens up a world for very "pro quality" EQs

    I'm no audiophile but...
    i used the xone for a while to play with 4 band EQ, it was nice but i really didn't need that extra band and there were times where i felt i needed an extra hand to do what i wanted with it.

    I use the "P600" over the "classic" because of the full kill on the low.

    I always use the Nuo4 setting in Traktor, that 3Band EQ does what I want it to.

    Nuo4 for the win y'all!

    +1 - the extra knob it takes up is also too precious.

    anybody have any experience with other DJ programs and how their EQs compare to Traktor?

    i tried extensively xone EQ in traktor and then found out that i barely use mid section. so in theory i now do not really care about which EQ i am using as long as i mix just on highs and lows. This um.. technique was advised to me, like 2 months ago, and i really like it - it's kind of: stay away from mid knobs and yer mix doesn't sound off. dunno if it is "correct" but sounds great imo.

    so whats the difference between Nuo and Classic - is there different algorithm in those knobs, or is just about "layout" ?

    i had to do a pain in the butt work around to get the ableton eq's at 0db at the 12 oclock position and still keep a full 7bit resolution on the eq's :\ Once you get that done though the Ableton EQ3 is not that bad, but could be better.

    Hmm, I kinda find the opposite. Mid helps me a lot with bringing the "loudness" of a track down very quickly during a mix. I also use it with tracks in which the mid/highs are not too clearly defined and sort of bleed into a muddy mess.

    Im sure the different EQs have different algorithms.
