Which specific libraries would you choose for tone shaping?

Postby jjmoloneyiv@gmail.com » Thu Dec 17, 2015 2:26 am

To elaborate, I've been trying to use as little eq as possible lately. Pretty much just for an experiment. I haven't had much experience with analog hardware/consoles/pres, but I know there are favorites for say...clearing up muddy/woofy sound, taming harshness, cutting sub, adding hi-mid harmonics etc. I like to run thin sounding tracks thru my 500 series Lindell comp, sometimes without gain reduction, just to get some fatness out of it. I've heard of people running thru an 1176 (no compression) for a certain sound.

So I'd like to see what you like for certain applications and why. Whether it's for a pre or post-eq scenario.

Thanks!

Highly recommend Henry's presets. Tons of great mojo, pre's etc and they are high quality collections @ http://www.nebulapresets.com/?page_id=2548

Been using Henry's presets on every job i work on. Worth the price ;)

Tim Petherick's Sum100a is great for bass, vocals, drums etc. Slightly darker sound @

Cupwise Flucti-Mew @ http://www.cupwise.com/fx/shop/flucti-m ... orlimiter/
This comp sits on my masterbuss for good.

For consoles, highly recommend AlexB MFC @ http://www.alessandroboschi.eu/html/ale ... onsole.htm
MFC has that finish record sound :)

And most tape libraries of course. I use (in equal shares) R2R, Apex and T-Tape.
