BUYER BE INFORMED! This only works "100%" when in UAD's Console as your tracking! It changes the impedence, etc. so yeah-they kinda try & not mention that much. I'm good with that-I grew up that way but their marketing would lead you to believe otherwise.
Yeah, I've used it a handful of times tracking-even less in mixing-that goes for all Unison UAD products. It is fun to color stuff of course but...yeah, you get the idea. Honestly? Given the choice? This is one of the many plugins I wish I'd have just saved the cash for hardware front end or instruments. Again, the Cyber Monday bundle was crazy cheap so I took some chances. UAD is wicked with their modeling but I think like everyone else I'm ready for new things analog can't do. No big whoop. I'll pop it in here & there. Plugin signature!
That and as always- great way to get disappointed if you compare the real & the modeled. I'm not even gonna get into it.
When in doubt? Remember that a track made on an iPhone in GarageBand was nominated for a Grammy.
