Definitely not better than current software options, but I've found I can find unique and interesting sounds that I can't easily match with plugs.

^^^ this!. Some of these old units have some serious character. My Lexi Alex and Vortex are really unique sounding.

Come mix time I usually switch to plugins for recall and to have a bit more control but every once in a while the HW just does something special...even the low end units.

I'd actually like to add TC M-One and D-2. Fantastic units! Loved those back in the 90's.
