Here for the gear

I can only speak for myself, but I just recently sold my SSL hardware compressor. The reason why is because of the Waves version. I decided to get the demo of the Waves version to test against my hardware, and I was able to basically match the sound, but most of the time I actually preferred the Waves. It clearly had a better sounding low end to my taste. The kick drum sounded a tad punchier, and the hardware sounded a tad pillowy compared to it. They both are great to me, but there was no way I could justify keeping the hardware.
I can’t believe how many times I’ve read about people saying on here that the Waves version is no good or whatever.
