Thanks, and yeah I agree! It's all about CONTEXT though which is why my #1 priority with the Clipalator is keeping source material identical where possible (most hardware, we use the same converter channels and cables even) and repeatable or as repeatable as we can get it. Otherwise, it's just not very real info when you cannot hear it next to things you understand.
Still, we provide video on variable items such as compressors and equalizers, since they all do such different things and it's hard to know how far something COULD have been pushed, to know more of its full potential rather than a static audio clip.
Not that it shouldn't be glaringly obvious but worth a mention, the Clipalator is there because of thousands of dollars and thousands of hours of our investment so that you don't have to spend YOUR money and time. I hope this translates into us being a great place to support with purchases, rather than just trying to be another listing on the web.
There is an enormous effort on our part so that you can click that mouse.
