Damn i was hoping NI's version was A, since that one clearly sounds more pleasing: warmer low-mids and less harsh at the top. just ordered the plugs, can't waiiiit! xD knew i can count on the gearslutz to review this ahead of everybody else haha cheers ppl

I would say that if you have no UAD and are jonesing for a massive passive emu...softube is a good one.
If you have UAD Mp then...???
MP UAD drawback is that it uses a whole sharc dsp chip. :(

You will find a link to the demos when you go into the page of one of the individual plugins. For some reason there is no link to the demos on the page for the whole bundle. Hope that helps.

Thanx
Go to NI website,scroll to products on the top.don't click it,let the drop down menu POP up(after the full flash page load).

Without clicking,scroll down to 'HOT NEW PRODUCTS'.without clicking scroll over to the the plugin one ny one.

Jeezo is right,it was hell finding the demo.the link from the whole bundle page font work.

repeat steps until you have all 3 plugin demoes.

For me A is less character, more like anything out there,
B has its own shape and its own 'charisma' ...

Yes, I love the UAD MP.
It never let me down.
To my ears it always add that little magic to the final product,
like nothing else ...

So, I read the manual of the NI passive eq,
so everyone agrees this is an emulation of the Massivo
but, there's no mention in the manual about this eq being parallel (like the MP)
And maybe that's why I liked the
Softube better compared to the UAD since I've never been a
fan of the Massive Passive because of that, if makes sense..

Oh well, Ima demo it myself as I really liked the posted files,
at least on that example, NI/Softube smoked the UA (for my taste)

Bought the bundle. I am so happy that these came out. Been longing for UAD Massive Passive for a such a long time. Not anymore. I am satisfied

Indeed this NI Passive Eq (softube) is one of the best i've Eq's that my ears (in the plugins digital world) has really enjoyed listening since a long time now. Woooooow such sweetness & details whithout harshness. This Eq just melts your ears.

Gotta say it, I'm in love with this Eq (bundle) that I got goosebumps. Once more, glad didn't pull the trigger to but the Grand C. (although I know it's one hell of a Channel Strip).
For this on, I'm gonna pull my Ccard $$$$.

Aight enough said, too much praise going on hahaah!!

Peace!

I did also. However- I will likely buy the NI plug-ins, as I don't have a UAD card.

I'm beat so I'll give it a good testing tomorrow. In this particular example I thought the UAD sounded harsh, that said I really feel (having owned the hardware for years) that the UAD really nailed the sound of the original. There's a smoothness the NI has that's really flattering to this source and that could have as much to do with it as anything else. I'll play around tomorrow and post some stuff. BTW, thanks for the links/instructions guys

I going to demo this now. I use the uad mp all the time and never would describe it as harsh. Haven't listen to the files yet tho.

i don't think it's harsh , maybe with less high bosst we could reach NI , but i suspect the Softube to do oevrsampling and so handle high in a more analog way cpu hit will tells a lot ....

I'm a uad fan boy,but I feel they cut corners to code under powered chips.

I thought there would be a uad3 by now,and $300 seem to be UA set price.


At $229 this bundle are among the best Plugins on the market.

I like file B,but love file A.and to get these great mastering Plugins for this price will have most spending even more money.

I'd like to use these beauties one vocals and instruments!

i liked A more then B, but b sounded clearer.

What are the graphs for?

If they represent files A and B,I'm thinking the mp3 compression chopped them down to about the same thing.

Is that what the graphs are?

BTW,my voucher was for $60 I got the bundle for $169

I just slapped Vari,passive,enhance and ampex on the mix buss and its seems they all work great!

Bypassing one by one I noticed,it sound so right with them all on!

I'M HAPPY!

ill give you guys more demoes tomorrow,I'd like to push the uad mp a Lil more...
