From memory, the UAD has a stronger 2500 colour than the trackcomp but I could be wrong as my TC demo ran out a while back. I’m sure for some genres this works perfectly but I find I usually want something with a bit more sheen.
I stopped using the VSC-3 on mixbus when I bought some hardware but it’s really useful on subgroups etc.

Just asked for another trial of the VSE-2 also - how do you access the discount as an owner of VSC-3? I can’t remember how it works!

I consider the 2k5 in TrackComp 2 much better than UAD's.

Question of taste , i even prefer the waves other the trackcomp one if i recall well

The contour i get in the lows and precision in highs with the uad is what i lissed if i recall well , must be the transformers or some ...
Don. T get me wrong , track comp could be the only comp someone need , same for he uhe presswerk ... but each time i prefer dedicated emulation (LA2A, 1176 , dbx ect ...)

But Trackcomp is a dedicated emulation. It's supposed to be emulating all the characteristics of the hardware.

I liked the 2k5 so much that I had to take it to the mastering guys I send my mixes to so I could compare just for fun.

Results: no difference AT ALL. Zero, none. I liked it even more after that

The UAD and Waves are nice but the money it's on the transients and that's where both the HW and TRackComp shine identically.

What do you most often used it on? What are you listening for?

Fast and defined transients, depth and modern sound. That's what I expect from a 2500.

Exactly this! 100% agree. DEFINED transients.. or "chunky sweet punch" as I would call it, is the forté of the 2500 in my opinion.

I also really like it's general "box tone" for a lot of single sources.

The hardware 2500 has quite a strong colour like UAD (dark) - isn’t TrackComp much cleaner?

I didn’t prefer any TC model over UAD during the trial period!

Sorry for being extremely OT..

Maybe you're using a very old 2500 and that's why you say it's dark. The two units I've worked with weren't dark by any means they're pretty much new (no more than 5 years). Quite the opposite. My biggest dislike with the UAD 2500 is the way transients are shaped into a pillowy punch while the two units I've heard/used make transients sound clear just like the one in TrackComp 2. In fact, since we're commenting on a VSC-3 thread I'd say that the VSC-3 is like a 2500 but with a more elegant sound.

Your experience with the hardware is greater than mine - dark was probably not the best description it’s more of a low-mid thickness/harmonics that seems to be a trait of the 2500. I know what you mean re the pillowy punch but I don’t have any other 2500 here as a reference point. You’ve definitely piqued my interest in the Trackcomp emulation though !!

Track Comp 2500's harmonics are more pronounced level & frequencies wise both while using 8x, 16x oversampling mode.

At 1x, the harmonics are barely minimum/inaudible(below -125 db).
A unique approach towards aliasing management.

A very clean, artifacts free and punchy sound. Just I wish it had width like 2500+ hardware. A common attribute of digital plugins..

Just wanted to mention again how bad the implementation of "No-Manual-Deactivation" policy is.
I had to replace my main workstation on Saturday, wrote an email to Vertigo.
Yesterday someone asked for a screenshot of my licenser and which machine to deactivate. I've sent it almost immediately.

Until now (working day is almost over here in Germany) No activation and no further reply received...

This is *exactly* what I and some others have feared what would happen if we need to contact them in these situations.


Edit: Received the activation now. But still: Vertigo please implement some way to deactivate licenses ourself.

I wonder when this bomb is about to drop?
@ vertigo Sound?
If it sounds anywhere as good as their VSC3 I'm sold!
Had the PA version of it and it didn‘t scratch my itch at all .. same with their VSC2.
What Vertigo does themselves is so much better than what PA managed to do.
