The DI on the Audient ASP 880 is killer but playing DI into a sim depresses me...

The board and AMP blows chunks!
Yeah, I am still in the early stages of experimenting with that method. For some performances I noticed that it may be necessary to get the amp sim in the general range of the desired feel/tone for that interactive element you mentioned. Something like a straightforward rhythm track may not have the same issue.

I think my next step will be a direct box, like you mentioned. I have been very impressed with some of the recent amp sims, however. The feel is not 100% there, but it is getting closer all the time. This is coming from someone who has been a tube amp purist & digital amp hater since the original Pod...

For the Townsend clean sounding preamps work best. That's why I first went with an Advanced Audio CM800T, I thought for my use case it should work well enough as a one-mic-fits-all solution. However that old CAD Equitek e300 II mic seemed to work better on everything I tried it on so I sold the Advanced Audio ond finally got the Townsend. Interestingly the C800G emulations work better for me than the CM800T and there's this example of a Billboard rap song (Money Talk by Rich The Kid and Young Boy Never Broke Again) which needed some overdubs and a Townsend with the C800G emulation was used to drop into the takes done with an original C800G and without any different processing to the emulation it's absolutely impossible to tell which part is the original mic and which is the emulation so I guess it's not too far off.

The ability to change the mic model, polar pattern, off axis correction and proximity effect in the mixing phase is something that is not possible with any other mic.

I am an analogue-sounds-better guy but unless you already know exactly what to set up with your analogue gear the advantages ITB outperform the sonic advantages of "real" gear regarding the final audio. Because the extra hassle can kill the vibe quite easily and the vibe is the most important thing. No one really cares if you used a real Minimoog or one of the best mics in the world as long as the quality of the audio is decent.

From Townsend's site:
The Sphere microphone is a dual capsule/dual output microphone and it requires that the input gain of both preamp channels be set to the same level. Sphere uses two channels because it’s not possible to accurately reproduce a microphone’s three-dimensional pickup pattern and proximity effect without recording the front and back of the mic separately.

Using preamps with precision stepped gain makes matching levels very easy, but it is possible to use virtually any preamp with phantom power.
Cheers. Think my RME UFX II should be OK if I ever get the Townsend then.

Don’t know. Got the email and shared the info. It’s a pass for me, though.

Bought and agree-really like SSLs clean uncluttered GUIs...kind of the antithesis to PA plugins. Adding this to the Essentials bundle I added a few months ago and really like.

Yes. Already have it but where are you seeing it for $15? Certainly not on the SSL site.

Also for an extra $20 you could get Nucleus Lite and then have the potential to upgrade later.

You do know that FM8 is essentially abandonware right? NI hasn't done any updates to it in years except for operating system compatibility.

My band mate loved FM7 so I bought FM8, which includes legacy presets. Tried it and liked it.

Also got FM8. couldn't resist to finally have this still top shelf FM synth
Before purchasei'd seen multiple threads where N.I. reps promised the Apple SIllicon update 'is coming' with no info on new functionality.
Compatibility, yes. Resisable GUI, ,maybe/likely (?) New features... (really) small chance is 'the word' i've heard.

I’m about to buy a Neve Style Preamp and can’t decide wether I’ll get more out of a 500 series version instead ….

Where do they post these offers? I have Dirty Tape, but I don't see any offers even on their site while logged in etc... It just says buy for 49euro or upgrade for 24euro...

Is there a secret deal channel somewhere (other than this thread of course!)

Also - I like how in Softube's shop, when you own an item, the "Add to cart" button changes into "Buy again" which seems... optimistic...
