Mediafire is pretty clean, and you can use download managers, but I put it up on my ISP webspace, it's just not as permanant that's all

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 .....

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

Also there is only one stereo track of audio, so it goes to show you don't need to separate stems/tracks with console/tape programs on each to benefit


Just one instance on the master buss will do the trick

I bought AlexB MBC - A*I 1608 console?


Anyway big difference from the demo Toft console, much clearer and nicer 8-)
Same RMS, but harmonics make it sound louder and bigger

Makes this Code 8 sound more a Jupiter 8 now :D
