What do you mean by 'filters' Logic?
I'm assuming you mean Equilizing filters or EQ. Which may include a variety of sound modifying tools such as shelving, bell, fully parametric, comb, dynamic and many other types of filter.
And on a variety of material; drums, vocals, acoustic guitar, flugelhorns or Peruvian nose flute...
And herein lies my answer....
If I want to make a sound... sound better... then I might reach for something that is rich and coloured... like a Pultec emulation especially when trying to tame a lively bottom end.
If I want to make a sound... sound less worse... then I might grab a Sonnox EQ and try to use it's precision to eliminate the honk, boink or other annoying noise.
If I'm working live I'll make do with whatever the desk has... and work with that.
Sometimes a high and low shelving EQ will do perfectly well. Other times is really handy to have a fully parametric EQ.
For feedback elimination in stage monitors it can be quite useful to have a 31 band graphic EQ.
Mixing live I use a HPF on every channel as a matter of habit, adjusting the frequency according to the instrument.
But when it comes down to major sound bending that still sounds musical at extreme angles of knob turn...
Proper hardware analog EQ is my favourite. It's just rare that I get to use it these days.
