Dear audio software makers...

...stop living in the past. This is the Sony Oxford EQ, widely considered one of the best EQ plugins:

...and this is Tracktion's built-in EQ:

They're both extremely similar in both function, and the amount of control they offer, but the second works like a real computer program (drag and swoosh the circles around til it sounds as you wish), while the first, 'pro' offering has a pile of twaddly little knobs as if keyboards and mice were never invented. Crossing fingers that one day, VST makers will realise that they're designing GUIs, not rack units
