Well they're 2 totally different beasts. If you're talking about the nebula "StateofLogic" EQs from the commercial library, well, they do sound quite similar to the Duende (actually identical...and they're labelled as "digital EQ", which points in the same direction). If you're talking about AlexB CLC (S*L 4000 E) - it's an even bigger difference and they don't sound anything alike. Anyway, there's no nebula presets of the channel compressors nor the bus compressor yet so you can't really compare them - but it's being worked on.
Firstly the Duende is not mdoelled on the E series but is a direct port of the S*L C200 digital console.SO the Duende like its counterpart the C200 is very clean adn precise where as the S*L E series was a punchy gritty sounding console.
I find the Duende and AlexB compliment one another very well.
Hey guys, thanks for the info. I'm not an audio engineer so I don't understand too much of the technical info, but I guess the Duende has a place in my mixing arsenal. What's most important to my ears is analog warmth. I'm not at all interested in crisp, digital sound. Are there any specific AlexB console emus that re-create the analog sound better then others?
