it's the Neve strip on sale anyway.
Thanks. I should have just said 'console emulators' as I group them all together in my mind whether Neve or SSL. But you're correct to point it out. I'll need to up my precision even more in future posts it seems.
I already have a ton of both types from everyone. Waves, Presonus, Slate, now Arturia, Kush, on and on... That's why I don't see PA's as being worth a ton no matter how extensive its feature set or quality. It seems like a top choice though don't get me wrong. But it arrived so late in the game that I'm pretty set already. The ability to change each track up to 99 of them to a slightly different tonality nuance is ground breaking though. But still, for me, worth around $50 each or $99 for all three.
As for Slam Dawg. I didn't know the guy from Audiothing wrote it. I like his stuff usually. The graphics are nice. But when I tried it out it just didn't work at all for me on the track I was using it on that day. It seemed to be too extreme at both ends. May be good for some material though perhaps that would need it I guess. Still think they need to get away from the hip hop naming stylizations though. Too limiting from a marketing perspective. I'm not a hip hop guy really so I see it as targeting the cheap hip hop target market segment. Skillz and Dawg? No thanks. I stopped there as it turned me off once I tested slam dawg. I hear their saturator won some awards though, no? Might check into it eventually. There's just other stuff I'd rather buy and look at on my screen than that for now. I'm shallow. I know. But marketing matters. I'm sure it probably sells really well to that target market though.
