I love placing the N British before and after Molot (with it's saturation turned off) and that new free Portico EQ emulation (www.j1000.in.rs).
Makes a very hardware-like sound, but with the ease (and fun) of the vst's controls.

It's a great program. I even use it sometimes in my mastering chain.

ok ... you guys MADE me go listen to this :?

tested out the demo ...

Bought the N-British module. :shock:
:mrgreen:

Still, there is something confusing to me ...

the Freq-Graphs for the A and N units ... are these
correct ??? or are they reversed [mislabelled] ?!?

anyway ... interesting sound. Dropped it on a classical piano recording ... interesting ... kinda liked what I heard.

I still don't get what this program does. Yeah, I have read about, but still don't get it :-)

In which way is changing the piano sound, for example?

I have read some posts above that you can load it before and after a compressor (Molot), but I don't know exactly how this actually affects the overall sound of a track.

It simply adds the "A" or "N" character to your audio. A large part of the signature sound from discrete analog hardware is generated from the transformer & or op/amp stages.

And remember, these presets, like some others from rhythminmind, are not in your face effects, but rather very deep and subtle emulations that impart an awesome analog flavor to your audio.

So, for example (just guessing), a good chain would be this one?

R2R > TB+ > Gain Stage > Console Input/Pre > Gain Stage > Compressor > Gain Stage > Console

I'm usin nrA enhancer and I put it on busses just after the compressor, and yeah, it's definitely subtle, but I like the way it sounds. Maybe this Gain Stage is another secret weapon :-)

More authentic paths would be.

Tracking =
Mic Pre, Console/Stage,(optional compression/eq), Tape.

Mixing =
Tape, Console/Stage, (optional compression/eq), Console/Stage, Print.

But honestly I find it a bit overkill to work like that.
I insert the processing as needed, not by default. Example - If I'm wanting to hear some A*I flavor I'll insert the "A stage" as needed.

Take your time to learn.Put some headphones on.Load some unprocessed/minimally processed instruments/synths then some Nebula emulation and listen.

A/B.If you still don't get it,it's normal.Like everything,ears need time.They will educate themselves with time.
If it's not now,soon you will start to ear the differences between "A" and "N","S" and "UA","L" and "Q8" and you'll start to chose what you need when you need.

In the meantime make music and don't worry,it's a journey...
