CTC 1 Console Shaper?

Not a fan of the Console Shaper, to me it rounded the highs nicely but also turned dense mixes into mush, definition was lost so I prefer not to use it, maybe it will get better with an update but for now I prefer how my mixes sound without it.

That was my experience as well. CTC-1 is better, but I much prefer the results I get from the Console 1 drive module and it is WAY easier on the CPU.

As another earlier post said earlier, yeah this is just a gimmik. I wasted my money on a plugin that can only be used in one DAW. It sounds good, but yeah not worth the money even on sale.

I said as much on the Presonus forums and a developer chimed-in and got all butt-hurt trying to tell me the reason I don't like it is because I don't understand the technology involved......

Personally I would have left the gimmicks till after the software was 99.9% perfect, then people would just silently vote with their credit cards. Even Tai Mai, which is a fantastic synth, wasn't necessary considering the vast amount of third-party synths we have.

Yeah, I figure the tech involved must be exciting but it still needs work, it still does not sound like a real console, they way it pushes back things in a mix breaks the deal for now.
