Crazy obsessive compulsive "distortion" about Analog vs Digital?

First off, please use a real 1176 and not a clone when you're trying to compare something emulating an original.

Secondly, no two vintage analog devices sound exactly the same and don't react the same to input and adjustments.

Third, stop obsessing over differences that can be replicated several different ways using a wide variety of brands and models of post processing tools.

Lastly, the subtle differences are something audio engineers obsess over not people who actually consume the music.

Now please, let's get back to making music and not the perfect tone in your head.

The guy owns a blue stripe clone, and doesn't know that a blue stripe is supposed to be cleaner, and the blackface more dirty?

Hysteresis of a mechanical analog meter will never be duplicated correctly inside a computer btw. So his fixation of meter movement is entertaining, at most.

The only good point here is the price $256 to $39 bucks was it? Whatever! Crazy German guys certainly go balls deep in huh!
Funny me thinks!
