Regardless of which you prefer, of course you still have to record every track thru a UAD Studer multitrack insert and then bounce it to a UAD Ampex, or everyone will immediately notice that nasty, digital 'in-the-box' sound, and hate you for it.

The best is Nebula. Best selection, best value, best sound. Not the best in terms of resource consumption, it's very heavy...but you get what you "pay" for, it takes cycles to perform emulations that sound that good.

I have satson. I almost never use it because I simply do not understand it beyond a simple H/LP filter/gain. It's great for that but I've gotten to where I use alloy on every channel now so.......it's lost in the shuffle.

Anyways, looking forward to hearing peoples ideas, seems like a pretty wide difference in those (especially price wise)

Well I am biased. I critic even what I use, the good and bad

I have Waves NLS
And I use Sknote stripbus + Waves NLS

Something is happening in SKnote StripBus that I really like. Mixed with NLS it is impressive.

Although I know it, and I am not dumb, nothing is like a studder 16 track tape recorder. However this digital realm is almost there, maybe in a few more years.


I really like the mix of Sknote stripbus + Waves NLS+ Voxengo Warmifier= a very nice and soft sound

Did you try the UAD Studer A800? They snatched a TEC award for it this year, so I guess some people must really like what it does.

Also, anyone using Airwindows plugins? Any opinions as to how they compare?

How are you using both plugins? Both on a channel or some Stripbus there and a few NLS here?

I just came back from my studio and I mixed with both of them today.
After the sound shaping plugins i placed a StripBus and then an NLS.
I like StripBus cos of the ducker feature. The Gain and EQs dont seem that much responsive.
I like NLS cos of the color, the gain and the crosstalk.

Stripbus is 2 in 2 out so after that I put a stereo NLS channel even if its a mono kick or snare.

At the master I dont put a stripBUS. Just the NLS Buss.

How are you using these two togother? Any conflicts? Any best way of using them to gain as much as possible? Do you have the old stripbus or the latest version?

Thanks.

I agree. And it seems like Nebula is where this whole console emulation started!
