So this is my first post. Long time forum viewer, newly active poster.
I just found out the Fabfilter issued a new version of their excellent Limiter
They included level compensation to avoid being tricked with the volume change
And Yes finally : LUFS metering !
I'm gonna love it, I'm sure,,, (where's my credit card ??)
Have any of you guys ever worked with the Blue-Stripe 1176 (revision D, I think?).
I've only ever worked with various Black-faced and Silver-faced 76's; I'm trying to remember if I even ever actually saw the Blue Strip in the various studios I worked at over the years...
IMHO it's insulting to both KT and 1176 that this thing is out. Having not heard it or used it I can't comment on its quality or authenticity. To me it's just a way to grab some kids cash.
The only potential upside of all this cloning would be for prices of the real things to come closer to earth, or for some true innovation with reguard to hardware. Lol neither of which has seem to hit the mainstream yet.
Universal Audio Releases the Chandler Limited Zener Limiter and A/DA STD-1 Stereo Tapped Delay Plug-Ins
today. I can really hear it working and I like it .
Anybody else here used it ?
What do you think ?
I have been using the Massey 2007 and the tokyo dawn kotelnikov which are a bit bitey and
smooth . The faraday has a vibe about it that I didnt have before . :)
Hope I dont sound like a salesman .....lol .:cautious:
I know there are lots of good limiters out there , but I haven't had them :sleep:
I thought this mix I did might serve as an interesting analog mastering comparison using a few compressors with tubes and trannies.
Even though the LA2A and 1176 is best suited for tracking and mixing, who cares right, I'm more interested in the colour on this one. The beauty of hybrid is ability to master something clean or add colour in many ways. Lets see what these gems sound like paired up and put to the test on the master chain.
