To me, waves sounds harsh in the highs...
Yeah I mistook the roll off for Waves "haze" so that's what I focused on.
There have been times when I've worked with soloed tracks where I thought Aireq sounded almost as good for the part. But when in the context of a mix Nebula always wins because it finds its own place and sounds bigger. That is something I can't gauge when a track is soloed.
