This ^.... let’s try to keep it light hearted here y’all... the endless bickering about things that are personal preference and just don’t matter, only stinks up this thread... and I’m pretty sure it’s safe to say that... no one really cares.

No matter what. Don’t let stuff that like get to you. You’re never shy to call someone a loser. You’ve called me a loser………so don’t let stuff offend you.

I’m not offended….but the double standards grinds my gears…

So many insecurities from people rearing their heads….be confident in your choices….and I’m not meaning you two…others here…Just because I’m not interested in a plugin does t make it bad…

If people want to use inferior reverbs…go for it…

You know when one friend looks at the other friend with a smile, a slight shake of the head, a bump on the shoulder followed by a “you’re an idiot”

It’s that kind of friendly gesture that’s now making me say “You’re an idiot”. Not evil. Not unkind. Just a……..”You’re an idiot but I still expect you at my place for New Year’s”……….where it’s my house and my choice of reverb.

Things that faux-annoy me ever so slightly today:

1. People that make lists.
2. People that complain about people that make lists.
3. Lists with an odd number of entries.
5. Lists with missing entries
6. Lists about lists.
7. Lizt Russ
8. People that use the word "faux". Pretentious w_a_nkers.

Nobody is stopping you from enjoying stuff, but I reckon some people feel like you get your kicks from pissing on their parade.

Yeah, at this stage it's safe to say that most of us are swimming in "warm saturation" type plugins from Kazrog, PSP, Fuse Audio, UAD, Softube . . and many other companies.

In my case the fact that I could pick it up for $15 was certainly a factor. I tried it out on a mix and felt like it was doing something *special* but your experience might be different.

As long as we have some "hot-plate, warming" plugins available for our next mix I'm sure we'll survive

This thread is exhausting...
I've got impression I'm trying to quit smoking again : I know I will not take any pleasure out of it, but I can't help always checking my "Who uses plugin alliance" thread. And it's often the same bad taste in the mouth after it...

It’s a bit stinky right now for sure.

Hoping peeps will chill soon.

That's a good title for a thread.....

let's make a dozen threads like this and see which one comes up on top.
One can be called: PA thread for real owners
one is called: no IKM here
the other is: f**k pedals, simulate my brain
and one is called: booho, my ego hurt and now I'm gonna complain.

BTW the last one will be very long but with very few contributors.
Not me.

That reverb got used a lot on your latest Reversed Vasectomy album, didn’t it?

Out of curiosity, what is it about the sound you don’t like?

I must have cloth ears. Whenever I compare, say. like with like 1176 compressors I think I can tell them apart at the time but if I give it a day and listen back ‘blind’ with fresh ears I struggle to tell the difference or pick a winner with soloed tracks let alone in the mix. So I just choose based on which I prefer using and makes it easier to dial in…

I find the differences to be diminishing returns. At least for me with my ears and monitoring. I’m sure the differences are more apparent for pros :-)

I do find the presets tend to be overcooked but I don’t like to use presets for most fx — comp, eq etc. as settings are obviously material dependent.

I’m mainly making electronic music and I don’t mix acoustic instruments often where I think the differences might be more apparent.

So yeah. Ik don’t sound bad to me. I’m genuinely curious as to what it is that I’m not hearing…
