I really wonder why "Buy a good Channel Strip" is not the first Advice for People who are looking for a deep analog Sound. It's maybe because not all are like this One - I don't really know - but the Console N really fulfills all Promises.
The Sound excels my Expectations by far. Especially the EQs - and at all Frequency Bands.
There are many Tools out there that promise a "Hardware Sound". For me it's in the End this Channel Strip that ends my Search.
Furthermore you should not underestimate the Effects of the Construction itself. Gate / Expander - Compressor - EQ - implemented in this certain Way - will let you work differently.
I don't want to say much about it than "try the Demo".
