Hi, and welcome to something I hope is helpful to you — some simple testing of audio plugins which you can use for comparing, or just to find out more about each one. Each plugin has charts displaying linear and harmonic analysis, and my comments. (Which may or may not be helpful, but it’s my blog and I can do what I want…!) Please visit my Preset Shop as well. I have presets for UAD, SoundToys, Waves (and more on the way) and a freebie for Airwindows. I will be posting 3-4 new tests every week, so please check back! Cool for your music…
So, raise you hand if you’ve used a Neve 2254… Anyone?
Limiter + compressor + de-esser. Limited controls, and people seemed to love it. Unlike a lot of analogue emulations, you really have to push the signal to get anything to happen with this (or is it just me?). I’m sure it is somewhat true to the original in this regard, but not my cup of tea.
I wonder if the way the plugin tests out is the same way an actual .17 console would test out? I assume the waves engineers have done their homework!
UAD’s cheapy/light/downsize version of tape emulation. But wait… it uses the exact amount of DSP resources that the Studer A800 uses. How can that be?
