Clip Examples

I've also been wondering the same thing. I got the Softube Console 1 which is great and want to take the plunge on some hardware but it's a big investment for subtle returns.

I did this quick unscientific test with clips from the Zen Clipalator. I hope this is cool to post Warren?

There are the clipalator's drums with the E Series and with the Stereo G.
I took the bypass files and ran them through the Console 1 with a similar curve.

There's no doubt of all the drum clips on the Clipalator that I prefer the SSL. So here are some bounces so you can see how close the Softube is....

I know we are only dealing with dreaded MP3s but what do you think?
