Thank you! I am looking at RX950. Will look at Tal DAV. Any accurate ASR-10 plugs??
You might also look at the Wavetracing SP950.
Thanks a lot guys! I saw the SP950 earlier in a shootout:
https://youtu.be/u5r2O5d5HFk

I will be getting TAL DAC and RX950 since they’re so affordable. Maybe SP950 late. I just wish there was an ASR-10 emulation.

Any other suggestions for this chain? I’m using it for my Korg Triton plug-in so that it competes with my hardware Triton and 2000s hip-hop producers who ran it through hardware like the ASR-10.

Apologies if I’m hijacking this thread. Maybe I should start a new one in the appropriate category.
would be a hassle but why not run your audio through your ASR-10, from memory they can do that
Yes they can do that and it would be ideal to get my Triton sounds to compete with the likes of The Neptunes. Producers ran the Triton through analog samplers to boost the sound. I always wondered why my Triton didn’t sound as “big” as theirs until I read this.

Problem is, I don’t have an ASR-10!! ($1,000+)
I have an old Triton that’s failing which is why I need the plug-ins. My main concern with the software is how it sounds and how I can saturate it to compete with big producers on a budget!

Thanks for the input.
there's no magic bullet, you are overthinking things. If you dont have an ASR-10, or even a few of them, then you dont really know what they sound like compared to the plugins. Any of the good saturation plugins will do the job well enough for you to "compete". In reality your social relations and production skills will do way more than some minor difference between the saturation used on any set of tracks - that's like thinking the sort of strings you use will make the difference between being a successful guitarist or mot.
BINGO, BINGO, BINGO!!! this may be the best comment Ive ever seen here. I guess I'm really old, I've used or seen my friends use all of these samplers when they were cutting edge and they're all crap today. Its the song or track that counts and the production, not the "vintage vibe" sounds.

So far my personal saturation plug-ins are:
Logic Stock
Softube Saturation Knob
Tube Saturator Vintage (another free plug-in)
Decimort-2

Buying:
RX950
TAL-DAC
SP950

In good hands?
Although I like the plugins you want to buy a lot (my favourite bitcrushers are Decimort 2, TAL-DAC and SP950), I have the feeling you are going to be disappointed. None of these will instantly give you the ASR-10 sound and punch you're after, certainly not RX950 and SP950 as they emulate the very different sounding S950 and SP1200. Have you already tried the demo of TAL-DAC to see if you can get that sound out of it?

No luck finding impulse reponses of the ASR-10, but these examples of the ASR-10 could help you get the right sound:

But unless you're pitching up and down quite a lot which causes aliasing, I still think all you need is a bit of EQ and compression. And of course the right sounding saturation if you like that hotter input sound.

I figured I wouldn’t get ASR-10 but maybe something close with a combination of these?
Decimort has a “ASR-10” setting but owners of the real hardware say it doesn’t emulate it well.

My other option is to settle for the Akai S-950 sound. The RX950 gets really close.

My last option is to learn the heck out of these plug-ins and create my own unique color with them.

Speaking of color in the future I want RC-20 if it goes on sale.

Forgot to mention I also have Reason 11 which comes with Audiomatic, which colors sound really well but without much depth in control.

Have I tried the TAL DAC demo?
No. I didn’t even know it had one. With it being so cheap I will just get it without a trial.

Thanks a ton!
My setup:

iMac (fall 2009)
3.06GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 4GB Ram
OS Lion

Pro Tools 8.0.3 with various Waves Plugins
Reason 6.0.2
61-key Korg Triton Studio. M-Audio Uno MIDI to USB cable from Triton to iMac.

Maybe this should be your first option as you already have Decimort 2. Don't be distracted by presets. 8)

Just a heads up for anyone like me who has an earlier version of Arturia Collection and hasn't upgraded due to the Collection being too expensive, the current individual instruments sale at 50% also applies to 'update instruments' so Arturia was offering me an upgrade to Jup 8V 4 for €29, but I actually got to buy it for half that, €14.50. It's really worth that price as it leaves the previous version in the dust!

Pickup McDSP Everything Bundle for around $500.

There are currently at least 8 McDSP plugins on sale for $29 or even less at some online stores. If you purchase 7 of these you can then purchase the Any 7 Native to Everything Pack Native v6.4 UPGRADE directly from McDSP. The total comes to around $500. I've personally purchased and confirmed.
@Uncle E - will you be adding the "Any 7 Native to Everything Pack Native v6.4 UPGRADE" package to JRRShop? You already have the Any 1 through Any 6 ones, but not the 7.

With the coupon code "group", there are a number of McDSP plugins on sale for $24.36, and the "Any 6 to Everything" bundle comes out at $293.16, so you could get the whole Everything pack for $439.32. It'd probably be ~$15 less if the "Any 7" pack becomes available too.
Sorry this took so long. We now have the McDSP "Any 7 Native to Everything Pack Native v6.4 UPGRADE" on our site for $299:

I'm fine with not updating though. I gathered 5 freebies over the years, they all still seem to be valid licences.

Can't open any Waves plugins in Live 11.0.5 right now--put in a ticket with Ableton. We'll see. Sucks.

Native Instruments Piano Colors sounds amazing. Native Instruments doesn’t include it with the just released Komplete 13 UCE. I don’t want to buy Komplete 13 UCE because it lacks Piano Colors and I don’t want to buy Piano Colors because I’ll eventually get it in a future version of Komplete. Is this some kind of German Idealism trap?
