I dont really want too spend to much time going back and forth on the subject lol. To me, an eq curve is an eq curve is an eq curve. The match function is just a computer coming up with the curve.
The only difference to me is possibly the 26 band equivocate has a certain per band bandwidth or similar characteristics.
That being said, if I were to take equivocates curve and put it on some other eq, I doubt 5 people out of 100 in a double blind could tell which eq was actually applying the curve
In the end, it doesnt make that much difference in my life. everyone can believe whatever they want to believe
