3) sell those things and buy the UAD plugs: there are slight differences, yes... but you can swap them out, use both on both, and/or track monitoring them in the chain but not printing the recording

Simplify. Play. Test. Listen.

Trust your gut, and be present in your situation.

Only use other people’s advice as a canvas. Feel free to completely throw out or cover up that canvas depending on what YOU feel is working.
1) I will, but I don't have all my stuff setup yet. New studio. I was just interested in people's views though. Not really asking for advice.

2) I may not. The question was hypothetical. I am not literally asking for advice.

3) I suppose that's a whole other discussion.

Yes. Not looking for advice exactly. Just looking for different opinions out of interest. I don't want to be closed-minded that's all. I have my own ways of figuring out what I need. Thanks.
