  16. Brilliant! Glad to see you updating this great plugin.

    I really dig what you’re doing and would like to help out with beta testing. Contact me if you’re interested.

  17. I love it. thanks.

    is there a way to add a shelf filter instead of the bell filters for the low and the high band? Than I think it is more semilar to analogue eqs. 😉

  18. Thanks again Bootsy. God bless.

    Hi Bootsy !

    I’ve just discovered your nice BootEQmkII plugin. An eq combined
    with a pre-amp/tube section is a great idea to add some
    warmth/”analog” sound.

    But im still not really satisfied with the processing of the high frequencies.
    I haven’t managed it to get a nice high freq. roll off.

    It would be great if you add a switch knob for the high center freq., like
    8,12,16 kHz or an extra high cut filter with a nice roll off shape.

    The possibility to switch any eq band on and off would be great for
    mastering purposes.

    But anyway, your plugins are really great !
    Keep it up !

    Bye and many thanks !

    I would love that option too.

    Otherwise,thanks for a spledid EQ

    @S Tek:

    To me the High Filter is already a Shelf filter type,

    For the Low frequency i personnaly prefer the way it is right now, Boot EQ with the Preamp LF and EQ LF Bell/Cut can do many things on the bass spectrum, without the need for a Low Shelf for me. It’s very unique that way.
