I found the TFT console makes everything too tubby and muddy, I hope the other ones are much better... Even my old long departed Mackie SR24-4 was way better, and my Speck Xtramix makes everything so airy and warmy, almost analog tape like, without the mud!
I can hear some phasing to stereo imaging with TFT - I wonder if it's due to TFT stereo line in programs
my opinion to your examples: i heard it via good headphones, so can't speak of the stereoimage. in comparison, i like tape+cons the most. i gives a good body to the sound and gives the different frequency-regions a better separation, which helps the depth-picture. there is a little fizziness in the highpitched sound, but its anyway distorted, so this doesn't make a big difference to me.
tape alone gives a nice body, but is a little blurry.
in the original file, all the parts of the sound swim into each other more, but makes kind of a sound-soup.
i think it all depends on what you are searching for soundwise. every color could be an option .....
system 1: windows 8 32 bit - samplitude prox, tracktion6, reaper system 2: mac osx yosemite - reaper(32+64bit), tracktion6(32+64bit)
both systems on: macbook pro (late 2009), core 2 duo 3,06 ghz, 4 gb ram, graphic: nvidia geforce 9600M GT 512 MB
The original lead sound has a filter frequency modulation, which makes it sound edgey anyway, the tape saturation brings it out more
Tape adds a lot of thickness, and it's a already thick and warm sounding synth!
I found it sounds ok on headphones, but on speakers there is huge difference between the clips. The Toft console program adds too much tubby lower mids. But I like what it does to the bass sound, harmonics wise. Adds a lot of pressure to it
I originally did the clips late a night on my DT880 headphones and I thought the tape+console sounded fine then, but on speakers it sounds a bit muddy. I did a sketch the other day with the console programs in the mix and again it sounded way too boxy
I think these console things might be better on a sound by sound basis. Putting a whole mix through it doesn't feel or sound the same as using a real console
