I had a bit of free time today & posted a quick snare processing comparison with the Stipe76 & Hardware 1176.

FYI - The hardware level is slightly hotter out of the two.

Thank you for the comparison audio files.
The hardware acts more quickly than Stripe76.
Grab quicker and release quicker.
But the overall sound is very similar.

I think the hardware sounds slightly snappier.
Both the files have the same 'weight' in terms of sound.
Sounds good!

Yep - I'd agree with that dp!

The hardware transients do sound slightly snappier, but this is a close contest 8-)

I've finally had a chance to mix with the Stripe76. This is a fabulous library easily the most 1176-ish sound I've ever heard from any digital processor.

Just purchased the 4:1 library and instantly tested it on vocals.
When this library first came out, I hesitated for a while, but I regret
that I did; it sounds awesome on vocals!
This is for me defintely the first ITB compressor that I can use
on vocals.
Any other software plugin makes the vocals small and narrow and thin,
that's why I always rented (the best possible) outboard when it came
to vocals.
This one easily fills the gap; I don't need massive amounts of gain reduction, it really adds weight to the vocal signal, and it grabs it.

A job well done! 8-)

So I keep getting emails asking how the Stipe76 differs from Alex's new 76D release (PS. Nice sounding release from what I've heard from the demo).
Long story short they are all from different 1176 Revisions. All with a unique color/response.

Stipe76 is from a clone of the original 1176 Revision A circuitry. Including transformers faithfully recreated by transformer guru Ed Anderson.

The 76D programs are from 3 other 1176 Revisions. Two classic & a reissue. The Rev B & Rev C.

Different producers swear by the sound of certain revisions. Truth is I have calibrated enough of them to learn that very few are alike. I've recently worked on a "matched pair" of blackface that didn't respond at all alike. This comes from the lack of transistor matching.
FYI - anyone looking for a true stereo 1176, find a studio electronics C2 or Get the clones from MoHog audio.
