Some of you know I was bashing the VCC before I ever had it under my fingers.
By now I did a quick test with an old mix of the Album "Lost and found" - Song named giving up - by the Berlin Soul and Funk Singer Rasto Lewandowski.
I just inserted the VCC on every channel and the mix bus VCC on the mixbus. You get three samples: File-Upload.net - Samples-.zip
One is Pure ITB.
One is VCC 4 K
One is Neve 1073 summing thorough In-and-Output-Transformers.
The differences are to my ear subtle but I can hear it.
Most to recognize on the ambiances claps lead vocals. To my feeling there is also more glue in the VCC and the Neve summing sample.
Make yourself a picture I think it is all subtle but I guess the VCC is worth the thing when the track count gets higher. I don't know what they have done at slate but it seems like VCC can save you from truncation at higher track counts or just mixing at low levels on the mix bus.
This mix has just 16 single tracks, I cant wait to mix a song with up to 48 tracks with the VCC. Most interesting was to me how near the VCC and the Neve summing is.
All I can say congratulations to Slate Digital to my ears they did a great JOB.
Again it is subtle but you can hear with good monitoring or good headphones you get an idea of what VCC can do for you.
BTW I am not working for Slate in anyway I just want to share my surprise and the Joy about VCC... do the demo it is interesting what happens when you move faders around. There is a sweet spot on the single channels!!
