    Sonible - Smart Eq 3 VST (Available on May 5,2021) deep analysis - smooth workflow https://www.sonible.com/developing-smarteq3/ This is the further development of the "smart: EQ2" he already uses an AI intelligence. The 2 Series always performed well in the tests. The fact that they advertise the 3 Series without describing the values is probably modern marketing to arouse the customer's curiosity and then make his mouth watery. Product: Very Good 1 / Marketing: Bad 5

    It's A.I. is incredibly perceptive considering nobody expects an auto-detect to be as accurate.
    Still, you rely on your ears, because it won't work for every scenario, style, genre or instrument. It's not flawless, but nothing is, nor should it be. It is, however, very intuitive.

    This looks fantastic especially for beginner or inexperienced mixers.
    Sonible is really very creative with their plugins, they're always trying to push boundaries, honestly I have a lot of respect for them.

    Honestly, never understood the point of such tools. 95% EQing is a very creative process.

    I stay with the "FabFilter - Pro Q 3", no matter how much advertising you do.

    You can use eq in a creative way, but it was designed to correct inadequate recording or playback conditions.
    And for this the smarteq3 does a really good job. UI wise and in general handling it's very similar to the pro q 3, but it has additional features like the learning and inter plugin communication that can really help you get the basics tuned.
    I'd like to point out that sonible has a very small team that is open to suggestions for future updates and their plugins are reasonably priced. I did beta testing for them but this is my own opinion, I don't get payed for advertising their stuff.

    I think EQ is overrated.

    If I can't get the sound I want with compressors and saturation and flangers and reverbs, I just delete the project and start over.

    I haven't finished a track in years, coincidentally.

    Tasks are techical, yes, but how you achieve them is creativity. What "separtion" and "balance" means in every project is solely an artistic choice.

    Wrong. You can go for a lofi digital aesthetic, and willingly make your samples alias. Conversely, doing the opposite can also be an artistic choice. Hell, I know a guy who bought an audio interface with a maximum sample rate of 18khz or something like that. Granted, he did so because he's piss poor and tone deaf, but still.

    When I'm in the studio it's not about creativity but about archieving the best possible result for the client from the technical aspect. I mainly record classic and Jazz, so I'm all about a clean sound.
