After testing literally hundreds of software emulations the only ones which truly generates this analog vibe in software land are the processors from Acustica Audio. In my opinion, of cause.

Have you tried them and if yes what's your experience with them?

Thanks man. I feel blessed to have the place....

I have not tried the Acustica plugs. I was interested in the DWFearn EQ, but now that I've got the Miad (hardware) EQ's, that has kind of scratched the EQ itch. They are the finest full featured EQ's I've ever owned / used.

But at some point, yeah, I need to try the Acustica stuff. Thanks for the tip.

Bit of entropy maybe. For years I was all about more gear - floor-to-ceiling rack of rackmount PCs for external sample library playback, a rack full of interfaces and snakes of digital audio cables, 8 computer monitors, goes on and on.

Then I was all about trimming down through the years that computing power was really taking off and becoming cheap - went down to a single computer, single interface, etc.

Now it's on the swing back to a studio full of gear and rooms full of instruments. I think I got tired of everything sounding the same originating from inside the box. Added several racks of preamps, analog processing and summing, cabinet full of top-shelf mics, a bunch of instruments.

Dunno. I think the important thing is to never stay static and always try/learn new things. Is more gear better? Not really. The right gear is better.
