Satin here. No time for comparisons...also no time to test it to much. Read Satin user manual seems to me more flexible and others. Waves seems that look to much in run a lot of instances than in the sound.

Well I downloaded satín demo and it sounds very good, it's so flexible and tweakable but un terms of sound quality r2r, tb+ and vtm from cdsm are much better, more real, open and 3d.

I hate to say it but Slate VBC followed by Satin with a slight low bump and lift in the highs gives a sound quite close to my analogue gear...

Might have to do a R2R VTM2 comparison...

Agreed.

J37/VBC/Satin on master.
VCC/VTM on Tracks.

Neb RTR/GRM for rendering sub-masters.

I guess when it comes to the j37 I can send some audio out to the real j37 and back for some a/b's , the only thing is the results would be slightly different for every machine/tape type....

Also can you get trial periods on waves and satin?

If you have a Waves account, you can demo anything for 30 days, and it is a full use demo. Satin, on the other hand, is an unlimited demo, but it injects some really overly-obnoxious noises, and very frequently (unless they changed it due to the complaints). I couldn't even tell what it was doing because the noises were so frequent.
I can't understand how a bunch of "Nebulites" are so excited about these 2 "algo" tape emulators. For real? Tape is one of the things I think Nebula kicks butt on. And if you have to go algo, haven't you tried the original VTM....? CDSM's VTM-M2? I have a few older algo tape-sims, and they are still good sounding to my ears (Reelbuss, Roundtone, even old trusty Ferric), but since Nebula, especially the R2r, Ampex collection, and Signaltonoize stuff appeared..... I have still not heard an algo that comes close.
But to be fair, do either of these (Satin and J37) even compete with Nebula and/or VTM-M2?

Yes , I have VTM but I also have a real j37 here for comparison.

I can do a proper comparison when I have the time. I'm not excited about any algo version of anything but I may as well compare for the benefit of everyone, I/we maybe surprised you never know, If nebula ends up being closer it would not surprise me....
