…can’t get rid of the picture in my mind from an analogue desk with GEQ in every input channel… 😉
Seriously, don’t see the need for a GEQ for channel processing. You already can do massive frequency response manipulations using the existing PEQ and deal much more precisely with problematic frequencies as any GEQ can. An additional PEQ band along with smaller bands (higher Q) may be helpful in some situations, though.
But, as George said, if frequency manipulation seems to be required which can’t be accomplished with the PEQ, the problem is outside the mixer.
..ah, and while a GEQ does require a decent quantity of DSP resources, it does not necessarily add latency. Latency compensation basically requires memory for the delay lines and obviously will increase the overall latency to match the longest signal path. I prefer to not have this dictated compensation and think before I route… 😉
