Just an FYI that can make your target curve editing so very, very easy. Enter the curve editor and immediately save a file - even though you have not changed anything. Once you have saved a custom-edited curve, you can open it in a spreadsheet app and edit it that way. (They are CSV files.)
With the graphic editor in MultEQ Pro, using a mouse is a bit imprecise with respect to the frequency of the handle (control point) and the amount of offset. And using a touchpad is, well ... mo' imprecise. In a spreadsheet, existing handles can be changed and new handles can be entered by simply adding lines; column A is the frequency and column B is the offset. Line 1 is the file's location/name.
There are some restrictions with respect to the density of the handles and their magnitude. This is from my experience as I have never read it anywhere. Under 1000Hz, there is a 100Hz min spacing. Above 1000Hz up to 10KHz there is a 1000Hz min spacing. Above 10KHz there is a 2000Hz min spacing. There's probably a restriction under 100Hz, but I have not done enough down there to have bumped into it.
There is a max +/-3dB offset, so your 5dB trough cannot be completely tweaked out.
Below is one of the last iterations for my no longer owned 885.
The curve for my 5508, beyond the "standard" 20Hz and 24KHz points, is:
200 - 1.5
300 - 0 (the "anchor)
12000 - 0
20000 - 1.5
