Haven't tried it yet - but I haven't got any API 550 emulations, so this may be interesting.

Just had a quick play, it's obvious it's not a straight emulation of the 550 (four bands not three!) the frequency knobs all sweep (no detents) which I like, and there a solo switch for hearing the band you're affecting - excellent - not that I have any experience with a real 550, but this EQ sounds nice at first hearing, is great for boosting or notching guitars (which is what I tried it on) and when pushed, it breaks up nicely, worked well on a send to add parallel distortion and top end sparkle (yes there's a shelf switch too - top and bottom.) Well worth every penny of - er, nothing! :lol:

Share what? :?

You needed to make a request for a serial number within the proper time frame.

You snooze, you lose. You had your chance and you blew it, etc. ...

BTW, it's pretty sweet ... especially for the price!

What are you talking about? it was a free eq. I didnt know how it worked. usually with free stuff you can back date it. I have done that plenty with magazines.

Never once mentioned pirating or anything of the sort.

I am sure the waves version will be just fine. Figured if I could grab a free one with extra bands that might be cool. Oh well

No worries, man. I doubt if it will make or break your mix. Always nice to have options, though. I need more EQs like I need more holes in my head ... :) .
