We need a proper ‘Clip/Event EQ’ for EQ’ing single events. Using DOP, you lose the option of sweeping an EQ band to find the spot you’re looking for since DOP won’t take effect, with audible changes, until you release the parameter you’re tweaking. And the longer the clip in question is, the longer DOP takes.
I absolutely love DOP for many tasks, but EQ isn’t one of them. IMO, this is crucial for Dialogue editing.
The best workaround I’ve found is to place the EQ you want to use as an insert, find your settings, then drag the EQ over to the DOP window, then reset the plugin that’s still sitting on the insert to its default state.
