totally agree--FF I'm sure takes the edge overall, but given the price differential, it sure as hell better! I'm just saying that for those additional features, which I'd rarely use (and in my case certainly don't need) the extra $120 or whatever isn't worth it--to me. as long as we're all happy with the tools we have, that's what really matters.chaosroyale wrote: ↑31 Jul 2021TB Equalizer 4: I just demo'd it, and you know what, it's great.

However, it only has full dynamic functionality in VST3, so if you need a dynamic EQ, sadly you can't use this one in Reason.
I think Pro-Q still has the edge with its more adjustable visualizer and extra options, and the Toneboosters default UI setup gives you a very heavy-handed EQ without a detailed visualizer, so you have to spend time setting it all up. It looks like you can save a new default setting. The demo won't save, so I could not test it.
I stand by my description of Fabfilter as worth the price when you really don't want to compromise. However, I would say that the Toneboosters EQ-4 is a great alternative if you are on a budget. Also....I have to say it, but if this is the quality of a "budget" EQ in 2021, why are the Reason EQ and visualizers still so bad?
and as for the question about Reason's EQ visualization--man, I wish I knew...or maybe I don't.
