Default EQ practices

Hey all,

I've been browsing the usual forums of late, and I keep coming upon advice that says that you shouldn't need to EQ a mock up done with a library such as the EW Hollywood ones (which I am currently using) if your orchestration is sound.

Personally, I think is a bonkers, dogmatic position to take. To my ear, these libraries are terrific, but certainly tend toward sounding dark. They also benefit from a little assistance in the presence department.

So, I have 2 questions;

1. What kind of EQ practices do people find themselves repeating with the Hollywood libs? (For me, air on strings, around 7k boost on brass, and some broad mix buss stuff depending on the cue - usually a broad presence boost. All broad stuff with analogue style EQs)

2. Those who subscribe to the "don't need EQ" school of thought, do you reference against commercially released tracks?

Interested to get the lay of the land!
