I just checked the project I was referring to above.
The mix knob is 100% wet.

it brings in some compression and makes the signa louder. after adjusting the loudness difference and comparing it with the untreated signal i hear more subtle stuff.
but like the overall sound with compression and all.

To echo others here, I would love a summing feature. Something like a channel setting and bus/group setting with variances on the channel.

Oh hell yes, that would be awesome - and the typical micro-variances in frequency response and left/right balance, unless Plugin Alliance own the patent on that with their "Tolerance Modeling Technology"

United Plugins 'Front DAW" plugin does it and explains it like this:
Quote:
"each plugin instance acts slightly different. Variable Analogue Random Modeling (VARM) technology models randomness of the subtle differences of the values of the electrical parts - exactly as in the real electrical units and the real console channels."
It's a bit silly how they also have to give names to these "technologies" but I do devil's work anyway....

Just joined with the purchase of True Iron.

I've been on a Mastering, 'saturation' hunt for quite some time. Been demo'ing all the name brands.

Heard much about Iron, but thought I had the transformer thing covered.

Within the first 5 minutes .... I now have the 'transformer thing' covered

That 111c trans was the decider.

I don't need a track mangler ... I wanted a track Enhancer.

Tomorrow I will start to dig in more ... but my initial quick test was just that ... quickly got the enhance I wanted to hear.

Yeah !

Recently I like to use a different models for each bus sections, kind of give more separation between elements.

The only difference is TMT is great and VARM literally doesn't work, at least in Logic. Create two channels, throw Front Daw on each, phase flip one, null city

Saw you ask about harmonics in another thread and I was going to suggest True Iron but I thought "nah, I am sure he has already tried it out"

At the risk of actually suggesting something you already own or have tried, have you checked out the CDSM Tube libraries? Awesome stuff if you are looking for tube harmonics.

...that is until we get 'True Tube' - one can only hope

It's been awhile ...

I did purchase the Tube Booster library [long time back]. Also some Tube stuff from AlexB.

These were all from my NEBULA install ... have to see if I transferred them to N4.

A lot happened during that transition time ... slowly moved Libraries over ... probably many more still to do.

Thanks for the reminder.

Can you please post a link to the Tube Booster library?

Thanks.

I went through the models and drove them all to Strength of 10 and then did some level matching with the output gain to create an "auto-gain" preset for each of the models. I feel like this is a must to keep me honest. Crush is at 0, Unity, Mix @ 100%.

I then labeled the presets according to the original units to give myself a better idea on usage. Or at least a starting point. For example, I won't even remember what "108x" means, but I can remember what "LA2A - thick - with 30hz rolloff" means.

So, I had to pull up the plug to see what models I use most.
108X - beef
111C - clarity & detail - Only model I typically use during mastering. Others are used during mixing.
1166A - mid push (I use it like an EQ almost.)
O-12 - mid aggressive - a type of fullness

I don't use the others as much.

I was actually referring to the Vintage Tube Collection as opposed to the Tube Booster if you're interested (although I have both).

Thanks, I am very much on the same page. So far, I use only two of the settings: about 75% of the time it's the 111C, the rest of the time, it's the 1166A. The 111C sounds hi-fi, natural, and vintage-classy; the 1166A is more focused, colored, aggressive.

yeah ... still trying to track that one down in my Library archive.

[i use to have a Cataloging prg that would save the database on my current drive, to include the external harddrives I have in storage ... made finding stuff easy].

thanks again for the reminder.

Thumbs up True Iron

I just purchased True Iron this week (just found out about it.) Tried it on an old mix, on the master channel (ProTools) and heard the difference immediately. Many other plugs promised this, but True Iron delivers weight/warmth. Good Job.

I would love to have a global bypass option when using multiple instances over a mix.

Does your DAW allow for a activate/deactivate spanning several channels?

I try to have pugins I use a lot in designated insert slots (TrueIron, Tape sim, console channel,...) and the QuickLink fuction in CubasePro allows for easy bypass (or channel adjust)
