Sorry, I should have clarified what I'm looking for. My studio sound
is pristine. The
ceiling height (9'3") of the room emphasizes the frequency B an octave
below middle C (61 Hz). Is
a graphic EQ going to fix this easily without messing up the overall
quality of the sound or am I
better off with a parametric notch filter? And will that degrade the
overall sound if I just use
it to kill that particular room resonance?
Of course having a usable EQ is a good thing for gigs, that would be
a secondary benefit. My
first priority is fixing this boomy resonance. $140 for a parametric is a
lot cheaper than doing
some sort of room baffle modification.

I have not A/B'd them properly, though my ear tells me that they are
in vastly different
