Togu Audio Line Re-names TAL TiltEQ

As I mentioned in an earlier post, Togu Audio Line was forced to come up with a new name for their recently-released TiltEQ plug-in due to a copyright issue. The new name is TAL-USEq (for ultra simple EQ). If you managed to download the original plug-in, congrats, you have a collector's item! And if you haven't yet, go get it... it's free!

Not intended as a snarky comment, but what's the point of amassing EQs? I understand that effects like compressors and reverbs can have wildly different characters, but I just can't tell the difference with EQs. Do you abuse them into being filters, and hear differences in their resonsant tendencies?

The appeal of this specific one is it's simplicity. It seems to basically be a glorified shelving EQ for when you just need the sound to be a bit brighter or bassier. But yeah, different EQs have differing characters to them, but it's an extremely subtle thing most of the time. To be honest, 90% of the time I just use Logic's Linear Phase EQ and call it a day.
