I am confused.
Which is more obese - the Fatso or Anamod ATS-1? Seems like the Fatso is more obese with the Anamod being more pudgy? Though the Anamod is more saturated like tape. But the Fatso has saturation that is not like tape, but still may be the good saturation - like Omega 3s?

And is tape really the ultimate, or basically what everyone got use to hearing for so many years.

Maybe years from now someone will make a "THIN-SO" that brings back more of that digital feeling.

Ok - enough rambling. Enjoy.

Being an Ampex Engineer, it has obviously crossed my mind if tape simulators realy work
I would also like to have a before and after recording sent to me by any Tape Simulator Enthusiast, so I too can take his/her original recording and put it through a variety of tape machines I have, to make a decision as to which is the best one to purchase if any.
At the moment I am able to record direct to a DAW through a loop set-up very cheaply indeed, by just using what I have around me, but if it does not use a loop or a reel of tape, then it could be a good investment in my other role as a Producer/Engineer.

But before sending me samples here is a simple test that a member might wish to be involved in.

Would any member have the test gear equipment to carry out certain tests for me? .
i.e.
Test-1
Take a frequency response test 20Hz to 30kHz, and while monitoring it, adjust the BIAS TRIM and inform me of any changes that take place within the Freqency Response.
Test-2
Also have you ever checked the output when set to the 350 Card or the ATR-102 to see if the Bias frequency is part of the audio signal, the frequency should be about 100kHz for the 350 card, and about 432kHz for the ATR102.
I am assuming that these Tape Emulators are simulating blank virgin tape, so in the case of the ATR-102 the Erase Frequency of 144kHz is absent as it is not required.

You might already know under what conditions the Test-2 should be carried out but if not, then I suggest that no input signal is used, in fact it would be wise to take the XLR input and with a plug Linking both pins 2 & 3 down to pin-1, which will total mute the input.
Place an Oscillator or HF Frequency Counter on the output, turn up the output to suit requirements.

END of POST
Its obvious that I'm on your side, by the way, where are you in our world

Best Regards

Wow, this thread isn't really about gear at all, is it? I think I'm going to start posting this link any time this sort of thing starts up:

Yes too bad about all the crazy trollish nutbar stuff , I was hoping for some good meat or info on this thread . Some advice - if you post a strong excited veiw of your fav gear , dont let others goad you into a long winded debate on non essential stuff , state your thoughts and ignore the objections .Were no debating deep spiritual truths here people just tools for making music

Ha Ha Unsaturated Fats.

Run, run, run though lots and lots o clean wire.

I'm so tired and uninspired, I'll expire, but I'll never die Fatso.

So everybody knows ATS is best, but you could run Portico on them all, and know body will no.

But Gloves said he was a super awesome producer with years of experience. Did he ever say who he was somewhere else? Or did he remain.... “anonymous muahahaha”?

Was hoping he was Kanye

Possible both of them started posting under a new GS identity. I mean, 'La verdad' had already done so as Donnx at that time...

Lol.

The drama was hilarious.

I was just trying to get some info.

Incidentally, 2x542 on mix bus = awesome. Not sure hire close it gets to tape.
Sometimes I also prefer Slate VTM.
Lovely on lead guitar.

OTOH my Anamod w/351 card really nails it IMO. I don't understand how you can say the Anamod over does it? If you don't drive it hard (and @ 30ips) it can be very clean, with just a hint of tapeyness to it. In fact it's the fatso that overdoes it when you're trying to get a tape sound out of it...and it's not an over saturated tape sound that you end up with.

Do you have the 351 card??

(Also have the HEDD, but only use it as a converter...don't use the processor)
Had both and had the same impressions. Kept the Anamod.
