the reason it wasn't a strawman argument, is that I don't need to use 3 different Neve eqs to boost three bands,
whereas, IF one doesn't have the hardware to 'sample', and instead one uses the included presets in Q Clone, one might very well use three instantiations to get boosts in three bands.

so the key:

A= Waves Sheps 73
B= Waves VEQ
C= Nomad British NEQ 1972
D= Waves H EQ (UK Vintage 1 setting)
E= Slate FG-N
F= Slate FG-S
G= Softube Trident A Range

That's very interesting! And don't worry about the lollipop WW, it's not worth the international postage.

So the Nomad was my favourite, I know this is just pointless validation on my part but I like their "Pulse-tec" plugin, use it quite a lot.

Right, but not particularly applicable to "proper" implementation of the device(s)..  On the other hand it will still sound much better than a algo EQ, and it might be argued that if you decide to alter something later, perhaps if you decide that you want 2 dB less 10kHz on a snare (Ok, maybe not *you* but it "royal" you), if you simply "add" that to the existing Q-clone EQ setting you will not have the inadvertent change in the LF behavior that you might see in a Daking or Trident EQ...  so "band interaction" isn't always desirable....

Nice. 

I can see why I preferred what I did upon my initial listening.    My HW chain for the Q-capture has been my Daking ---> SSL brown EQ for a decade or more (those two cover most everyting, occasionally I've patched in a 1084 clone)

I appreciate the acknowledgment that I've probably never wanted less 10k on a snare! image

Right there with you.

3k here.  And I always need/want that with the way I do things.

Thanks for running this experiment, William.
I have the V-EQ as part of my Gold bundle.
At one point, Waves was running a special on the Sheps-73 and I had asked on social media if anybody noticed a difference between it and the V-EQ. Nobody ever answered that post. As a result I didn't bother to purchase the Sheps.

I guess it depends on the snare and how you fit everything together, but I often boost up at 4-5k for the aggressive *crack* if indeed I want that, and cut stuff between 1-2k; I find annoying chirpy sounds round there, though I only have three snares to chose from. (one ALLEGEDLY formerly owned by Mitch Mitchell, a gift to a friend from a former drummer of a act you'd recognise image). I have a stupid analogy for snare sounds - they're like the nose of the mix. Always there, right in the middle of your face, loud and proud. Sometimes a strange nose can make a face beautiful, sometimes it can ruin an otherwise attractive person, but there's no missing it.
