Get over to Acousticas and download the free Bricasti M7 IRs with presets for Space Designer. I'm glad I did, and you will be too. Really breathes new life into SD.

Its sound better, but still i cant get to that place where my mix sounds better WITH SD than without SD.


2c Aether is now my reverb workhorse, sounds thicker and more musical. BUT watch out with the high freqs,,,

Since we mix everything (pop, rock, rnb, hiphop, dance, worldmusic...and so on), we use a lot of other stuff too, both hardware and software, but these plugs almost allways apears in a mix.


1: UAD LA2a (mainly vocals, sometimes on bass too)
2: UAD Pultec Pro (usually on a vocalbus)
3: Sonalksis SV517 KM2 (EQ) (everywhere)
4: Sonalksis SV315 MK2 (comp) (usually drums)
5: Sonalksis CQ1 (clean up bad vocals, de-ess...blabla)
6: T-racks3 Linear Phase EQ (Allso everywhere)
7: Tritone ColortonePro (warm stuff up....give it a little bit of colour, though I'm looking into nebula3)
8: Logic Spacedesigner with Bricasti (great verbs...drums, vocals and so on)
9: UAD plate 140 (vocals)
10: UAD Dreamverb (recently started using it again after a years or so of not using it) (worked REALLY well on this worldmusic thing we're mixing right now)
11: T-racks 3 Classic Compressor (model 670) (drums bus, sometimes masterbus)
12: Izotope Ozone 4 (NOT on the masterbus though) (drumsbus, vocalbus.....a little bit of everywhere, sometimes not at all)

Logic's Tape Delay... for very short delay to help glue tracks together in same space. Not sexy, just practical

M7 impulses (using sd now, may look into truestereo thing) Love the London plate

SoundToys Tremolator... This thing is awesome. It breathes life into electric piano, guitar... and it's got SERIOUS options as to exactly how you want it to do so

VintageWarmer: I wish it did subtle saturation better, but it's quite good at grit when I need it. I usually dial mix knob down and rarely push the drive

AirWindows Classic Channel: Usually on API setting at 50% People seem to overlook this one... great for SUBTLE saturation. Many instances aren't a problem. I sometimes even throw a touch of it on mix bus.

SoundToys Echoboy: If you need a short delay for ambience, or some sort of related chorusing, etc... it's got a unique take on some classic ideas... very useful

Scarbee Black Bass DI... Iit drives me nuts that you can't always slide from the notes you need to to make the song work... that being said, it sounds phenomenal.

LoungeLizard: Wurly patches... I'd MUCH rather have Scarbee tho... piggy bank time

Logic's phase distortion plug: Dialed WAY down... like 4% or lower... adds that little bit of fuzz without introducing compression issues or sounding like digital clipping

Voxengo elephant: Masters Punch +3db... maybe dialed down to less depending on signal

Antares Warmth: Dialed way down, it can add good, subtle tube saturation effect, but it's also good for terrorizing when called for.

b4: I've had some version of this plug since it first came out, and it still provides a deep, rich sound I just love

  1. Logic Channel EQ - Not great above +4dB, but gets the job done most of the time
  2. PSP VintageWarmer2 - Love the knee setting to shape kicks and snares
  3. PSP MixPressor2 - Love it on snare
  4. PSP MixSaturator - Currently using it over the 2-buss for character
  5. Logic Space Designer with Bricasti impluses - Awesome
  6. Logic tape delay - nice for subtle effects
  7. Sonalksis FreeG - Great little utility; it's on almost all of my tracks to uniformly change level without having to change track automation
  8. Logic Sculpture - So cool for creating unique sounds

I wish I had SoundToys to add to the list, but I don't (yet).

I have PSP OldTimer, but I don't use it very much. I probably need to learn to use it better, but so far it hasn't been a go-to plug for me.

I'll play:

UAD Harrison EQ -
UAD LA2a
UAD 1176
UAD De-esser
UAD Maximiser
UAD Plate
UAD Pultec
TL-Space reverb
PSP Lex 42
Digi-rack eq
Massey tape-head
Auto-tune....

Just demoed the UAD-fatso - stuck on a drum buss on a mix i should be doing now - it's incredible! Also recently got the Paul Frindle's DSM - seems really great but I've been using it more as a problem solver than anything else - still need to dig deeper into it -it's deep!
