Hi, I´ve been listening some new videos from this new plug and although youtube quality isn´t the best I can say it sounds awful to me, when they want to push it harder that plastic sound comes to the table. As an intense user from R2R and Apex, tb+ and VTM from CdSoundmaster I can´t say there isn´t anything on the market today wich makes me change my opinion about the tape discussion. Wishing to listen to the j37 that is coming from Tim Petherick (apex 351 presets are the s***t here).....!!!!!!
Well, ehm, isn't that kind of Waves' signature? What would you expect, that Waves changes it's policy to deliver astounding sounding software? Mc. Donalds will not ever change their recipe/turn to healthy ingredients either, unless it will double their market-value. It's kids' stuff, no knowledge required, but don't expect high end quality.
For those saying to try Satin, are you thinking it is better than any Nebula tape libraries? I have Slate VTM, and havent gotten around to looking at Nebula tape offerings because I am just starting out with Nebula and have bought other libraries first.
Mmm - satin is the best of them - and the ability to control the curve is great - but ultimately the nature of the saturation and compression is the same to my ears as all algo ITB saturation and compression.
