Lives for gear
I actually like the waves version. I have owned several ssl bus clones and also had access to a real g384. What the waves version really nail is how hard the knee is, that really locks the kick in.
The real g384 gives almost a saturated sound in the mids, very crunchy which i heard no clone nail. Maybe that's the old dbx vca's?

I think plugins are good enough in this regard. Yez the Hw sounds a bit more open and hifi but i don't think it's worth the hazzle. Maybe you feel it is!?

Demo it and make up your own mind. All clones nail the ssl punch but the g384 sounds best ro my ears but is quite expensive.
