    What sort of processor would be good for adding character or generally improving/changing/softening a computer generated mix of soft synths etc.

    Something under £500 if possible!

    I have a UAD-1 card, but I would like opinions on hardware as a comparison.

    You can always try folding back audio out of your DAW, through a piece of analog equipment and rerecording that. Just about any type of analog equipment, good or bad, can provide many different types of coloration. It doesn't matter if it has noise and/or distortions as long as it provides some workable tonality. Cheap, lousy circuits can frequently provide interesting textures. Just use your imagination on things that are generally not really plausible to try. Smorgasbord audio can be a lot more fun than anything that has "Pro" in front of its description. One of the coolest guitar effects I got quite some time ago was with a pair of alligator clips acrossed a blown up power supply on the input to a UREI 1176 limiter!

    Imagination is the key! Whether in B-flat or, C.
