Hi, appears you missed my post. Here it is, addressed to you again:
Ok, so I think I've solved the problem here. Unfortunately, it will lead us to another issue with your credibility.
You claim that your files using the Steinberg Vintage Compressor and the NI Supercharger Compressor sound the same to my VBC
Well first of all, based on your guesses, you don't seem to be certain which of the files that I posted ARE the VBC's FG-GREY.
Next, I just took a listen to your RAVEN mixes using the Steinberg Vintage Compressor and the NI Supercharger. I compared them to BOTH the SSL compressed mix and the VBC
FG-Grey compressed mix. If you consider these to be VERY CLOSE, then I would respectfully suggest that you improve your monitoring.
The NI Supercharger has a completely different frequency response, and a lot less low end. The kick is much thinner than both of my examples, and there is clearly more top end in the Supercharger which is very audible on the vocal. The Supercharger has less thump and more sheen. I didn't mind it, but I certainly missed all the low end and midrange mojo from my examples. Very different.
But not as different as the Steinberg Vintage Compressor. Compared to my examples, this is very pumpy, and the kick drum really squashes the entire mids every time it plays, making a weird affect on the vocal and guitars. The upper mids are pretty mangled.. this is not a pretty sounding buss compressor. This is not even in the same ballpark as my examples.
So if you believe that these two plugin compressors sound like the VBC
, then we shall stop any correspondence right now because we are hearing vastly different things.
