Which Console & EQ's for Deep House

Postby cmcknet » Mon Feb 06, 2012 3:53 pm

I'm looking for a nice console maybe CLC or VBC and an EQ or two specifically for Deep House. I dig the mid 90's sound, I also like modern productions as long as they have some warmth and character.

Also, want a nice compressor for NYC style drum bus and some nice tape emulations for drum samples etc.

... any suggestions on a nice Nebula setup?

Thanks

Thanks anthonyw,

I'll have a look at them tonight.

There's so much choice it's hard to no where to start other than by trial an error. It's nice to hear hear from users with experience!

Cheers

Not to be a pain, but as I've said in similar posts, any Nebula console and EQ library will get you great sounds for any genre if you spend some time learning the characteristics of the libraries. For EQ's, you should consider maybe more than 1 so you can have some tonal variety (like a real analog studio set-up). Maybe the CLeQ and Pooltec or Cooltec for some nice variety in EQ's. If it were me, if I had to have only 1 console library for more modern music, I would use the MBC by Alex B. I love the CLC, VBC,MLC, MWC..... they are all awesome. But I have been leaning on the MBC more and more lately for that modern thickness and punch. I have a feeling that you will get as many different answers to your questions as there are people responding!

Oops, forgot; compressor.....

4KD is nice, as is the MWD. My personal favs though are the GMD, even though it is intended as a mastering comp set, I use it all over the place. The comps at Rhythminmind and TranscendingMusic are very cool too. Again, I think that it is just a matter of picking some good solid tools and learning how to use them. You can't go wrong with the stuff from these devs. My all-time favorite non-Neb compressors (I hope that this is ok to post...):

Those VST compressors are amazing and very very affordable.

Thanks richie43,

I'll take a look at GMD and hadn't heard of the GTS-39 until now so I'll look at that too.

I'm already a big fan of Schwa and Stillwell so I'm glad to see someone else liking their products.

Thanks again, it's a great help getting solid advice from users with far more knowledge than a beginner like me.

Best wishes,

Craig

Yep, almost forgot, R2R and Tape Boosters is also a good idea.
