This was free at AD last month too. And free at ADSR in Setember.

I don't make 'em...I just report 'em...:P

I got this one free, but wasn't sure if it was a keeper, so haven't installed it yet.

What's everyone's thoughts on it?

I'll probably download the demo first just to get a feel for it, but I have so many good EQs already I'm not sure it adds anything!

Got an AAS sound pack for $12 with the automatic CYBER21 discount coupon and a few Deluxe Bucks, plus got the Melda EQ tossed in. :)

Depends on how well you can draw.  I'd say it is a workflow thing.  Melda makes good stuff - it might not offer anything different than an alternative workflow.

It isn't a go to for me but I also don't usually have the Wacom setup when I'm making music.

But you still have to buy something to get it. Some here will call this not really free.

Hell yeah

The MFreeformAnalogEq is nice.

It has a lot of options beyond just hand drawn curves. You can use points to add bands and easily adjust the curves in between.

You can also show the frequency zones with different displays, such as ranges from high to low, or by octaves, etc.

Thanks Brian 🙂

I do like Melda and they have some great things, but I also have Harrison Ava Mastering EQ which allows me to draw curves and seems to sound quite good!

I struggled with it a little at first, but the last time I used that I was quite surprised!

I tend not to have Wacom tablet when producing either! 🤣

Some interesting points there.. thanks! I might have to give it a try and before I decide I think 🙂

I think that FabFilter ProQ would probably be the best way to go. But this one is almost free. :)

But it has the word Free in the name. So it has got to be free.

I had Pro-Q 3. I sold it because I had better use for the money.  I also have MCompleteBundle. I also had/have a bunch of other EQ's, and got rid of what I could.

I use Nuendo's stock four-band EQ. It's integrated into the mixer so it's easily accessible and I can see the curves on all channels at a glance. It equalizes just fine, and usually when I find myself needing a fifth band it's a sign that EQ is not the solution to my problem. My soundscape is probably too crowded or the source too dirty. I then work backward and clean up or refactor the foundation instead of polishing the turd. I work with synths and there the cleaning of the spectrum starts with the synthesis itself.

Equalizing is a solved problem for me (when it comes to tooling), and if I ever need a fancy solution - which I never I do - or want one - usually because I'm lazy or playful - Melda delivers with its multi-band this-and-that sidechaining facilities.

Got MFreeformAnalogEq a few months ago.

AD is offering MFreeformAnalogEq until 12/24.

Want to make purchase of something at AD, and CYBER21 will get me 10% discount.

Any ideas on how much longer CYBER21 will be valid?

Would hate to wait until 12/25 to see what the new freebie will be, and then find out CYBER21 doesn't work anymore.

Looked around website, but I couldn't find an end date for CYBER21.

Never done it before, so I don't know, in worst case, would it be possible to sell MFreeformAnalogEq for like $10 or something?
