Yea. Pretty much my understanding. Using 1s and 0s to change sounds in all the right ways. Two articles good articles I've read are the white paper on Waves Kramer Tape and the SOS article about Slate VTM. I know they aren't EQs, but it's the same principal.
Really insightful. After reading these two I understood why they have to charge so much for these VSTs. (Whether they are worth that much to most people is another issue).
