I've never heard of the dude, but I can't stand any longer than "Hello" .
Yes, his name's Wytse pronounced white-sea... so yeah, hence the name "White Sea Studio".

Yeah I think you'll be overcooking it. I know they market HG-2 as a mastering saturator but I think it's far more suited to instruments - it's not subtle in my opinion.

HG-2 can be very subtle, specially if you find the mix knob. :wink:

So question. HG-2 does tube saturation. But Ive heard stuff like "its the transformers that make tubes sound good". Does the HG-2 also include the transformer part? So if I put HG-2 and then True Iron on a master bus, will I just overdo it?
In my opinion, True Iron sounds way better than HG-2.

Anyway, I guess using these two tools on your mixbus will most likely be too much.

True Iron can handle it all by itself. It's the ultimate "saturation mix glue" as far as I'm concerned.

What kind of setting do you find yourself going for in terms of strength and crush for the master bus glue? I find that on max strength it can still sound a bit subtle without a bit of crush added as well. I also find myself reaching for the output gain since the strength knob seems to add a bit of gain or perceived loudness.

For electronic music at least, I'd never use True Iron on the mixbus, it adds way too much lowend density. Probably works better on acoustic kicks which can tolerate more beefing up before it gets swampy.

111C adds a very nice clarity and depth on the mixbus IMO. Quite found of v178 on synths.

+1 for the 111C on the Mixbus. It doesn´t saturate to much but adds soemthing nice to the Track.

True Iron on mixbus for electronic music is very good! (And not only 111C)
