Analog Channel Presets
 
Hope Charles and the gang can help out here......

I remember reading somewhere that the AC1 'console' presets refer to specific real-world desks...I think SSL and Neve were in there?.....

Anyway, I can't find any definitive info on this and there is nothing in the manual about this, so I was wondering if anyone has clues to which presets are models of exactly which consoles.

Also, any help with AC2 would be much appreciated too.

Cheers,

Prima

From what I heard or read on the 'DUC',
Console 1 seems to be an emulation of an SSL buscompressor.
Console 2 seems to be an emulation of a Neve buscompressor.
But don't ask me about console 3?
Maybe an emulation of one of the Behringer Eurodesks?heh

D,

I've seen this implied elsewhere, but never exactly stated outright. This is a misconception held by many about this plug-in, probably mainly because AC1 has parameters labeled as Comp, Attack and Release.

AC1 is not a compressor at all. It is an emulation of Analog Console saturation.

I don't have PT open right now so I can't answer exactly the Console 1, 2, 3 question, but yes two are emulations of SSL + Neve. The third is a hybrid of the two. I'll answer with more specifics once I'm in front of PT.

Hope this helps.

Could you check out the other presets too!!!
 
Cheers D & Charles.

Charles, please could you also take a look at the other presets for AC1 and explain what they are trying to emulate?

Many thanks,

when that plugin first came out, I emailed the folks at McDsp asking this exact question and they replied...

console 1: Neve 1084
Console 2: Neve 1272
Console 3: SSL 4000

Hope this helps!!!
