    Oh snap! That thing looks killer. I hope the full screen view will have a hot key and work proper in a daw. How sick would it be to have that thing on the master channel and be able to tap a button and pop up in full screen. I can see using this for mastering for sure. And with the new curves it gonna be sweet for bass automation stuff.

    I like it. I wish all eq's would have a spectrum analyzer... I wish everything had a spectrum analyzer actually, lol.

    i stopped using the original as much cause ableton disables automation when exporting but only with pro-q...it's weird as fuck, read a few other complaints about it on the ableton forum but it hasn't been resolved yet..

    it's more than likely an ableton issue but i'm still gonna be pissed if the issue persists with v2

    Dang, that sucks. Glad I know that now, I haven't tried automation in ableton with pro-q yet... Just reaper. But I don't really use reaper that much recently. I'm still on ableton 8.

    I can't watch it on my phone. Is there a list of new features?

    In hoping there is some sort if key follow feature that moves selected bands up or down depending on what key you play.

    Also a sidechain option that enables you to use an external source to boost or attenuate certain bands.

    Yeah I've tried it. Tons of options for customization there! And a lot of different curves available(from analog to pure digital).
    All-in-all it is the direct competitor to Pro-Q 2. But FabFilter interface is just so much more logical and easier to use... and with killer-features of V2 I don't know which one is better.
