Been a minute since I dropped by. Can't find anything on this except the Steinberg hype that it is a new "feature". Questionable nomenclature at this juncture.

Has anyone used the pre-eq in Cubase? Not too sure what to do with it. Obviously you can assign a low shelf at a selectable frequency as well as a high shelf. So exactly how does the gain adjustment effect either or both? It appears it could actually be a feature if it were to help cut out the rumble region hopefully with a steeper Q than the low shelf on eq1. Or maybe it's just window dressing?

I don't use a pre-eq often at all no matter the platform...very rarely...I tend to record very, very flat, then do eqing and processing after the fact.

Now that makes more sense. I was looking at it as an option for post recording eq. I'll bet you're right. It's intended to be applied to the incoming signal during recording. That makes more sense.

Before/while recording it could be useful if you need to roll off some extreme highs or lows (wish I'd have done that in a couple recordings that just kill me now, but I no longer have the sources for)...but outside of that, not sure what one would use it for during recording.

My mic pre has an eq button on it that will cut the lows. I'm assuming the Cubase function you speak of is probably something similar. I never press the button though, and just eq what I want after the fact.
