What's your take on the aliasing issue if you compare the Phoenix sound to the BCA or ACA. I know it's not the same harmonic distortion profile, but knowing what that particular Class A transformer coupled analog drive sounds like, do the C1 strips with their well into audible range aliased harmonics sound full of artifacts by comparison? I was sort of shocked they're as high as they are. I have many times used the drive on a bunch of tracks and wanted even more from it but then listened to the full mix and thought I went too far and it was unpleasant sounding. So I'd go back and reduce a lot of the drive or take it off and then it would sound much better. I always thought it just meant I overdid it, but now I wonder if the aliasing on numerous tracks ultimately became too much.

I'll reiterate, this is not a problem to die for. The aliasing in this case is something you can minimize in different ways. I just mentioned it because I would love it to be cleaner so I can use the drive more, that's all.
We really have to lobby softube to propose those with dsp uad onboard as an option , they will benefit from upsampling on the platform , unless uad changed some recentely lol ...

Let s say you re calibrated at -18dbfs drive at 12 , what are the aliasing levels ?

By the way good news for the zener , lately it has been my busses channel , don t forget that you can load that channel and use over componenet ( in my case the germanium as comp) and the weiss for the master (curious to know if anybody cheked this one drive ....)
