I wonder if anyone can recommend or even point me in the direction of a DJ-style 3-band EQ plugin with killswitches for each band (and ideally one for the entire thing) for Mac. I have scoured the internet many times and again recently. The only ones I've found are a couple of old Windows ones (David Ross, I think, and Scuzzphut), the LSS DJ EQ that requires Pluggo to run (though the Runtime is free), and, of course, EQ3 in Ableton Live.

Apr 21, 2011 DJ-style EQ 'isolator' plugin. To run (though the Runtime is free), and, of course, EQ3 in Ableton Live. Available for free. DJ-style EQ 'isolator' plugin. To run (though the Runtime is free), and, of course, EQ3 in Ableton Live. Available for free for both Windows and Mac but.

I recently bought Kombinat by Audio Damage both for its multiband distortion capabilities (obviously, as that's what it's made for) but also for its built-in EQ isolator, which does exactly what I want. Except that it colours the sound so much even when the distortions are set to thru and the other controls are all off.

Otherwise it would be perfect. Does anyone have any knowledge of any others?

Pluggo Runtime is available for free for both Windows and Mac but that particularly plugin (the LSS DJEQ) just doesn't cut it for me (no pun intended). The 'crossover' is just all wrong for what I want.

This is also why the Kombinat would be perfect (it has adjustable crossover). If only it was 'true bypass'. Also why the David Ross one should, in theory, be good too. If only there was a Mac version. It feels like I've looked at every developer in the world's EQ plugins. That includes PSP, though I looked again more closely but still found nothing.

Was there one in particular you were referring to? So the URS S Mix? And the PSP ConsoleQ? I didn't say PSP or anyone else didn't. Just that I couldn't for the life of me see one that had such a feature.

Even now if it hadn't been pointed out that that's what the 'IN' buttons did, I wouldn't have had a clue. Their descriptions don't really seem to mention or make it very clear what they're for. I'm not really up on some of the EQ plugin lingo though. The URS one requires iLok though anyway, which I neither have or want.

And I think buying an entire bundle just for one feature of one of the included plugins is on the ludicrous side. Even if I could afford that for another EQ plugin.

And I have the Reaktor ensemble to try. Thank you for your recommendations though. Do they (or the one you have) kill the sound completely when all bands are off?

No, it's not that I don't like EQ3. I know some say that it colours the sound too much but, for me, it's not enough to care about and I don't think it's a bad colour anyway. Unlike the Kombinat.:/ I just didn't want to have to use Live at all.

Though I'll still keep my eyes open for such a 'standalone' plugin, if you'll excuse the paradox, and keep you posted. I think it was one of your posts on the Ableton forum I ran into actually. Perhaps from pre-EQ3 times. Oh, and when I did use Live, I believe I tried the EQ8 thing and didn't really take to it. I think NI should make one and create Traktor's 13. (I think, though I don't know as I've never used it, that you can do this in Traktor anyway).
