How does this sound against the UAD Neve 1073?

Is this an emulation or a tribute?
How different is it?

You’re not going to get the harmonic distortions that you’d get from “big chunks of iron” in an input circuit, so it isn’t going to sound the same. The frequency choices and slopes are very similar, and the plugin has been quite well recieved.

It doesn’t cost heaps of cash and require expensive DSP cards to run, either. You can run absolutely silly numbers of instances on a modern processor.

Try it and see…it’s free to download, and dead easy to remove…just delete the DLL if you don’t like it.
