What, Waves are the good guys now, didn't you know - Cheap as UAD and 'better'.....
It's the 'alternatives' bit that is the point. Surely a thread of 'best compressor' & 'best eq' has already been done here??? If so, why go to the lengths of picking a target to attack 'personally' with the same information.
Surely the above information is more beneficial to a consumer and if some of the suggestions are for the UAD platform then its up to you to find out if the system is for you or not.
If your still not sure if the info is useful then look at some of the suggestions. Someone mentioned the T-Racks Opto compressor to replace the LA2A & the LA3A.
