    This challenge provides ten different excerpts; each features a dry sample, followed by two processed samples, A and B. One of these is processed through the original vintage or classic hardware, the other through a Liquid Mix emulation of the same unit. The question is, ‘which is which?

    I scored 70% correct but, my ears preferred the liquid mix (go figure).

  2. I was surprised by how often I chose the Liquid Mix, though I suspect this "challenge" is a little skewed.

    it could very well be.
    i've had liquidmix for three months and i love what it does for the money (paid $500.) The fact that i can run 32 mono track per session is sweet.

    It made me feel like I had no Ears. I had trouble noticing the subtle changes in some of the examples. I need to buy Golden Ears (Effective but dryer than a popcorn fart)

    I could hear a clear difference most of the time.
    Considering that none of them were too far off, its pretty surprising. but the guys behind th samples did not do a very could just compressing and EQing.
    I would need to hear either my self, or some one I know to be good with gear A/B the two before I would every consider it an appropriate comparison.

    80% right and preferred the real thing. That wasn't what I was hoping for. I was hoping I'd prefer the Liquid Mix to save myself a ton of money.

    It looks like I'm going to have to save by switching to Geico.
