I was wondering what you guys thought of the EQ module. I usually have Q3 before to do all the sculpting, dynamic eq ing. Is Neutron 3's eq module as good as? Can I use it with confidence? I understand it doesn't do linear phase.
I hate to be the bad bearer of news here, but the dbx 286s is actually slightly better than the Neutron 2/3 Advanced Noise Gate module. N2 Adv's noise Gate module is great but the hardware processor of dbx 286s nails it coldly!!
I just add the N2 Adv Gate for Post-processing after the 286s of course for a superbly-tight Auto-Black space in the track without overgating all three frequency bands.

For EQing, I stick with Tokyo Dawn Records Nova, TBProAudio's DSEQ, Izotopes Ozone 8/9 Dynamics (very very very underestimated module/plugin) with 8/9 Vintage Tape (hit the Bias negatively hard!!!) Soundtheory's Gullfoss, and DDMF IIEPro EQ.
