McDSP Analog Channel, Avid Reel Tap, Nebula Free - Comparable?

I don't use Pro Tools, but McDSP has promised forthcoming AU versions of their plugins for some time now and since then I have read some great user reviews of Reel Tape.

Anyway, to anyone that has McDSP AC and / or Avid's Reel Tape would you be able to post a demo or two up? Also, your opinions please, how do these products compare to what's offered in the free version of Nebula?

AC is amazing. ReelTape is great.

If you are looking into options for Logic there are many.

Depends if you are looking for AC1 or AC2 Analog Channel emu I would say Channel Strip Pro does a nice job but is very minimal in the way it works. But pair Channel Strip Pro with Massey Tape head and you will start to understand the 2 layer concept of AC1/2.


The layering is best and I find it to be even more useful and impressive than Reeltape.

Good luck mate!

*****

To clarify, you want to have Analog Channel Emulation. Such as Channel Strip, or Waves SSL. (Too many options to name)

Then you will want to find a good Tape Emulation. And on your master bus do something along the lines of.

EQ(optional)>AnyEffects(Minimal and Optional ^_^)> Analog Channel Emu>Tape Emu

Yea, I'm mainly using Slate's VCC for the "analog" channel emu so I think I'm mainly looking for a good tape emu now. Thank for that, I'll check it out.
