Fatso= 1073+SSl 384 Channel Strip Plugins

Fatso= 1073+SSl 384

What does a fatso do that I can't get out of a transformer and a compressor. Is it ease of use. don't have to hook up a chain to get warmth. Thinking about trying on out. Any comments. I know allot of people are digging it. Does it give stuff the missing 1st octave that you get from analog? Will plugins replace it? Have they already? Should I get the analog channel instead for my tdm system???? Any input. Thanks

The compressors has fixed settings so it can be hit or miss.
The warmth is what you pay for, nice to un digitalise stuff.
It does a better job then DUY tape and Valve which I have.
I a/b'd it with inflator and analouge channel and it sound better for me.
I did find when I upgraded from:
9098 or UA with 57 combo into a Mix system with 882/1622.
To Calrec's and API's with M160 combo into PT HD 192io.
I do need the warmth less. I also hardly use the DUY stuff anymore unless I have a lot of keyboard tracks.
Although I am diggin the buss comp on the mix for rock stuff at the moment. Although been using the 2254 lately as well.

As always try for yourself as we all have different needs and ears..

What do you like the fatso on? The biggest things I miss going from tape to digital are : kik snr bass and crunch guitar ...the bottom end...and the compression. Your always adding that bottom end. And of course...acoustic guitars can sound certain cases.
