Given that this forum is like the unofficial Satson fanclub, this will probably be interesting to some people :D I have not tried it yet but I have been looking for a nice, versatile, parametric analog style EQ.

Interested! Really like those smooth high and lowpass filters in Satson.

I did an A/B test today. The Slate EQ is modelled after the brown version I think. At first I though the Slate one sounded a bit better but if you play around with the Q of the Sonimus one a bit you can make them sound almost identical. Plus the Sonimus one has LP/HP filters, drive knob, more flexible frequency bands and you don't have to deal with Steven Slate. Nobrainer.

I pulled the trigger on the StonEQ. The black/brown Q option is really nice, more musical for boosting and more surgical for cutting. The bands are designed really well, with most "analog" designed EQs I find myself reaching for Ableton's EQ8 anyways because they don't do what I want to do but the bands on the StonEQ cover pretty much every typical use case except for extremly narrow notching (909 ride resonance for example). The drive adds a bit of edge and interacts with the EQ in a nice way, especially if you boost.

Thank you very much for the detailed comparison!
