    Not sure where to ask this, but I figure people should have answers here somewhere:

    Question: Can rack graphic eq’s with 28 or 32 bands recreate the qualities of a parametric eq, due to having so many bands? Where boosting a single band on a 32 band can simulate a narrow ‘Q’, whereas boosting the neighboring frequencies on a 32 band can recreate a wide ‘Q’ to that same frequency peak?

    You can approximate the behavior of a parametric EQ by using a graphic EQ, but you won't be able to exactly replicate it. There will be a series of ascending and descending peaks instead of a smooth curve. But it could very well be close enough. Only your ears can tell you whether it meets your needs.
