Sorry to hear that. Contact Sound Radix tech support to see if they can help. I've only used this in Sonar Platinum and it works great. I haven't tried it in Mixcraft yet. When I do I will report back if there are any issues. Hope you can get it resolved. It is a fantastic EQ. Good luck.

You know, its pretty amazing what the digital realm allows people to think up and create.
I finally got a chance to look into the EQ and find it very interesting. I don't qualify for the freebie, but may consider getting that one to experiment with.
Very cool possibilities. 8)
Stay in tune, Mark

Well, for anyone interested, here's what I learned:

First, the Boogie version is a three band "light" version apparently produced for distribution to Focusrite customers only. From what I see you cant buy it and the free offer to Focusrite customers expired at the end of Oct.

The full version is offered at $199 and requires iLock for authorization.

No thanks........

I hear ya. I won't bother with any software that requires iLok. Luckily the free light version doesn't use it.

Y´all who you are interested in this EQ, before going nuts about having it, you may be interested in what Eric Beam has found out about digital EQ´s:
Digital EQ Fact & Myth: All Digital Parametric EQ’s are the same

As is suspected. :D

No argument, if there's a difference of any interest to me, its generally about how the interface and/or controls work, not the EQ function itself.

However, what intrigues me here is as shown in the demo vid, mildly boosting a primary melody note (for example) and the plug in in can be automated to follow the melody notes, for instance accenting them..... Its shown better in the vid than I can easily explain.
I can imagine some useful applications for that. Interesting and creative application.

This is gone. It was an October feature.

Seems they have a thing every month. Good to know that anyway.
Keep your eyes open every month, there might be a grain of corn there one day :D

This month (Nov) they have some amp simulation there. Listen to the guy in the official video, he churns out lifeless licks at the speed of light.
