Thanks for your soundclips richie! They are very helpful.
The examples from Get on the Bus are also very nice.
Henry's libraries need to be known by more people ASAP.
His presets are highly usable.

670 Mojo is a product that has languished at the back of most peoples minds I am sure as not really useful perhaps. Anyway , I came across this thread on GS and was intrigued to see how passing the dry files through my recommended workflow would sound in comparison. The thread included a comparison between the Anamod 660 and a real 670 Fairchild

http://www.gearslutz.com/board/gear-shoot-outs-sound-file-comparisons-audio-tests/331540-anamod660-fairchild-670-test.html#post3530190

So I got in touch with Roundbadge and he has given me permission to make my own comparison using my 670 Mojo product. Bear in mind that the Anamod costs about £1300, a self built Fairchild using the Drip PCB maybe about £ 2700, An AT-101 analogue tube about £ 14k and a real Fairchild costs north of £ 30k. So my miserely tone preset pack for £ 10 withers in significance. But how does it sound if you follow my workflow - you can listen for yourself as I compare a Waves Puigchild and also T-racks with my Mojo presets to the real thing.

I will be careful to say that I understand the vast differences in price and have realistic expectations - the hardware obviously easily sounds the best. Also bear in mind that no two fairchilds are likely to sound the same. I did however sample a real Fairchild's tone to produce 670 Mojo and it gets you just a few inches closer to the real thing. I found my favourite plugin to work with was the T-racks version.

My recommended workflow for stereo is an instance of T-racks Vintage 670 comp and then two instances of 670 mojo - left and right in the excellent DDMF Metaplugin to rebuild the machine.

670 Mojo is available here

cool test!

Tracks + MOJO is pretty close particularly on the drums...

Im wondering - the REAL 670 seems to have a more open sound which could be the compression or maybe its just an EQ signature on that unit? I sounds rather luurvlie on the vocal example...silky...

Yeah the real deal just has that magic that I am afraid I do not have the money for. It has a beautiful open top end as you say.

Makes me want to build one of these by Drip but my electronics 'know how' is just not up for it.

I hear the Anamod sounds mighty close but again - that open top end thing on the hardware................hmmm

To my ears those demos are very very close.
I think in a blindshootout, it's much harder to say which is which.

I have the t-racks 3 deluxe and the black & white singles since along time. But i never really liked the sound of 670 and rarely touched it. But with your Mojo preset, i really feel the sound.
Now i realize how good it actually is. It sounds glorious on almost everything, especially on buses. I'm not exaggerating.
Wondering if you can make some LA-2A Mojo as well. (haven't tried the free LA from Eric though)

I also got lot of other stuffs from you, thanks alot for the discount code. I honestly felt bit embarassed, since the prices were actually already very low.
I don't have enough time yet to spend with all of them, but i already love Buzzard P2 (will get the others as well), G-20 master bus, Tape vol.3, and the A*I stuffs.

Thanks for your efforts. And keep up the good work!

The Mojo + T-racks is by far the closest to the real 670. It's not quite identical, but you have to listen closely to tell the difference. I want the Drip, but who has the time? It might be worth paying someone to build it, though!

Henry which preset did you use exactly from your 670 Mojo??

Hi KP2009,

These were the real hardware settings used on the thread

Drums - time constant 1 around -6 to -8 db

Vocals - time constant 3 around - 10 db for more obvious effect
Bass - time constant 3 ...- 8 to 9 db

So I chose the corresponding time constant presets for each comparison in my mojo library. All the time constants were sampled with only about 2 dbs gain reduction. ( As an aside - The deep, deeper and deepest presets were done using constant 1 if my memory serves me right. I went for about 5 dbs gain reduction for deeper and finally about 10 dbs on deepest. The Low Drive preset was with a much higher input to really drive the valves- bit of a gem that one - may be the best if you want a more coloured sound. )

So what I did was open up Metaplugin and route the left output to an instance of Nebula. I opened up another instance of Nebula and routed the right input to that one. They then were routed to the ouput. You can use the mono instances quite happily of course but using Metaplugin you can rebuild the hardware. I have tried to build a stereo version but the two channels sound different and I couldn't level match very well. AT least with two separate mono instances you can level match independantly.

The presets were placed after the plugins. Metering on the T-racks isn't always as accurate with deep compression as I would wish but if you use your ears you can dial in a nice sound.
