i use cubase stock plugs and some free vst plugs because im not rich lol,but i was thinking that the Geq(very clean and efficient) is better than then studio Eq but the Studio is better than regular Parametric. Also Geq has different repsonse settings.whats the difference? which stock plugs are some of your faves? i Like Gq i just want to understand the different responses. also cubase maximizer is crap. any free vst suggestions?
