Looking forward to demo this one! Whats the latency on it? Could you compare it to URS Sat and Soundtoys DECAP?
You shd know by now that 112dB live to serve... just make your wishes known!
Redline Preamp has exactly zero latency and a much much lighter CPU footprint than the Equalizer. I could compare it to URS Saturation--I'm not that familiar with Decapitator TBH--but I'm not sure that would be very professional.
One thing I will say though is that our Preamp sound is more refined than Saturation, which IMVHO comes awfully close to a overdrive or distortion unit for all but the subtlest of settings--either that or your hardware preamps sound quite different from mine!--, and capable of more different tones simply because it offers a lot more controls. Both have their merits and it probably depends on taste and/or application which one suits you better.
But OK, the damn thing is almost ready for release and I'm really excited about it so I can't resist a little showing off. Quoth one of our beta testers: The sound is GORGEOUS: rich, deep, full. This preamp is gonna be my go-to plugin for doing my gains and adding warmth before equalizing and compressing the signal. The new Number 1 in my effects chain. To me, it's the clear winner in the "family" of colouring/warming/characterish/mojo-inside plugins
There, I said it. But ultimately, you be the judge!
