Cheers, I had thought the Mike E was more just a compressor - looks interesting like an updated FATSO I'll check it out in more detail. Sounded great in their demo video.Najimad wrote: ↑Tue Jun 15, 2021 10:20 pmThere are lots of saturation plugins, find out by yourself what works best FOR YOU. All kind of plugins can be used for saturation, mayby also try mike-e.
I do not like eleminating frequencies completely by using a notch filter, let the instrument be the way it is, just find harmonizing result in a mix without destroying its soul. I like mixes with live character like from a rehearsal or gig, I like 1970ies sound with unperfections lots of masking, extra noise, but with a great vibe.
Newbies could have been tempted to buy pa plugins when they read this thread before I posted. I recommend to compare. A list price of 349, on sales for 35, so cheap???
Of course so cheap, most of these plugins are not worth more than 5 imo!
It took quite long for Waves to have so many plugins, PA obviously imitates it and want to reach same success in a short time!
When you wanna go fast, quality might lack
What a great professional homepage with lots of bla bla, agressive marketing and promotion... they obviously want to make money and it's legit. Some Brauer engineer says he uses this and that plugin, CLA presents this and that Waves plugins.
Who is so stupid to believe they use it in a prof production with hundreds of high quality hardware around them haha
I recommend to compare, pa knows how to hype, but there are smaller, way greater devs like TDR, Klanghelm, Vallhala, BOZ, LVC, DDMF etc, but also bigger devs like Softube, Voxengo, Waves, Eventide etc Just COMPARE! We all know who developed the best SSL comp emu, for so many years no one could make it better, it is never on sales and you won't hardly get it second hand for a good reason. And maybe try to find out whether something works for you without being influenced by anybody's opinion.
I had a pa one year subscription, enough time to check their plugins. Today I would not install or use any PA plugin, there are other devs making a better job imo
And I agree with someone here, I have to repeat, because I have my opinion, my message is all that glitters ain't gold and
COMPARE AND HAVE A GOOD TIME!
You specifically said 'rumble' as if it was a problem you needed to deal with. I don't think anyone suggest notch out a rumble or resonance completely, but to reduce it to get the sound without the problem and more how you like it.
Look man, loads of the top mixers are now mainly in the box. People still track through hardware, but for mixing it's a done deal imo. Also, tons of really great electronic music has been almost exclusively in the box for many years already.
And hey, I'm not a PA fan boy, but they do have some really good plug ins, and their value can be excellent. Their model is just to lower prices of older plug ins so they can generate 'tail' revenue on them instead of have sales dry up. I still don't get why people have an issue with good plug ins going cheap.
I agree lots of developers are making tools that are good enough to mix with. We're discussing pretty minute differences in many cases, and just differences rather than subjectively being better or worse.
And further, I think a great example here is the Waves Schepps Omni Channel. There may be plug ins with higher fidelity, but this is such a good and well thought out Tool, that the ease of use leads to better decision making. and of course you are not prevented from using other plug ins before or after a channel strip.
