I use both of these on the same project, don't do this to me.

“BIG AL” still sounds like some porn star from the seventies in my opinion…

In 1966, Big Al scored four touchdowns in a single game while playing for the Polk High School Panthers in the 1966 city championship game versus Andrew Johnson High School, including the game-winning touchdown in the final seconds against his old nemesis, Bubba "Spare Tire" Dixon. Pretty impressive for a plugin.

Alright, OP, these are both great tone-shapers, not just saturation but EQ and some dynamics elements to their behavior, I truly use them both pretty liberally and could not pick between them for this purpose but if you were going to shoot me I'd say Big Al I guess to save my hide.

BIG AL, by far.

They are both great tools. But if you want opinions - Big Al is my favourite plugins from PA, and probably ma fav over all. Really great flavour and workflow. Works on everything, while Philscascade not so much

They’re both different. Try them and see what you think
I wonder what happens if I press this button...
