...i found it a bit fummy when Astro told us he got closer to cansellation using the Ison device. is this a rip-off as well?
well, I've commented the procedure a couple of times already, but to make it clear:
I added a (technically) valid cancellation setup to an existing project and didn't get even close to what Martin's predictions.
So I concluded he was wrong.
But since I was already at it, I suspected a possible reason (for the result) might be that DAS had increased the Polteq's bandwidth (lowerd it's Q-factor, steepness) and the ISON is the only EQ in SFP (afaik) that goes below 0.7, so it was the only option to do a test.
ISON's 0.5 Q was decisive for my purchase back then - and this feature alone makes it outstanding.
As the degree of cancellation indeed increased, I concluded I was on the right track, but in fact I was bloody wrong.
Things aren't always what they look like at first glance...
The project itself was so messed regarding it's (internal) sample accuracy that not even 2 identical eqs with identical settings cancelled each other.
When I loaded Martin's presets into a new project it worked as he predicted, when I loaded them into the 'messy' project they failed, when I loaded them into the (formerly unused) backup copy of the 'messy' one they worked.
So I can reproduce that erroneous behaviour and it has nothing at all to do with Polteq.
This result is far more interesting (and useful
) for me than the knowledge that someone repacked or modified something.
In fact I posted (under general discussion) that imho even an improved usability would justify a commercial release. The PEQ4 does sound great (it's stock eq in a fairlight console), but it's a pita to operate.
strangely this pro DAS statement was completely overlooked by cher Eric, who seems to see me as the personalized evil - which I enjoy of course, as it matches my zodiac - and it pleases me that he overestimates my influence on opinions
