GML TDM

What is the thinking behind this plug-in,
will it match the GML hardware EQ?
Is that realistically possible for software?
Would that be a wise business move, as potential hardware buyers might not bother if they've got the plug-in?
So will they make it a little 'different', a little 'less cool', say 5-10% off base, so that the plug-in becomes an incentive to go the whole way?..
Or will it always be a different sonic beast by more like 20-30%, even with trying to make it the same?

Jus curious as I'm thinking about buying one or tother.. or both

thanks

The GML eq should be a phaselinear eq, wile the Sony eq with GML option is modeld after the 8200.
The GML eq should be very nice, but the Sony is the thing.

Thanks,

I've got the Sony GML option, while I rate it very highly I don't get the impression that it is sonically at the same grade as the GML EQ hardware unit. But this is guesswork, has anyone compared the 2?

I have both and although I have not a/b'd, I really don't think it is realistic to expect the two to sound exactly the same. I find the 8200 great when tracking where a quick eq is needed, while the Sony/GML is my choice once the signal is 'on tape'. That being said, I hardly ever ever use the 8200 any more.

Have you heard the GML?

Sorry scrabled some terms it is a high resolution eq. But with Massenburg aproach ->clarity and transparency.
The Sony is modeled to sound like the hardware which is a different aproach.

I think I have to check out the GML. I also would like to see a TDM eq with the quality of the Sony eq with more flavors (APIsh, Neveish, Heliosish...).

I also miss a expander/gate with lookahead funktion.

Try this : duplicate the track to be gated - send the copied track to a bus - use this bus on the original track for sidechaining the gate - then nudge the copied track forward.

Just a little work around for the look ahead.

Thanks for the suggestion, but why couldn't they build on that looks ahead? They do that with comps/limiters!

Erik, besides the obvious delay compensation that has to be made if not on the master bus, does it create any sonic issues with looking ahead?
