Calf is known to cause multiple issues for users of Ardour, it seems more
likely that you had a specific set of circumstances that allowed them to
work by accident, rather than them working intentionally before. I would
strongly recommend using something else. The a-* plugins that come with
Ardour are a great start for example, there are other options out there as
well, fo rinstance the LSP plugins, Robin's x42-eq, etc.. As someone that
teaches audio mixing at a local uni, I would also recommend learning to EQ
by ear, not by reading numbers, it will help you improve tremendously.
