ITB Substitute for RCA BA6A

Hi Andrew,

so good that I can ask you directly.

I am still looking for a reasonable substitute for my "RCA BA6A Limiter" ITB for mobile mixing. I always used the hardware unit as parallel compressor for tracks that required fatness and warmth.

Since I know that you relied on the RCA as well:
Any plug-in or plug-in combination out there that comes halfway close in order to get that kind of fatness?

BA6As are awesome, and old, and all sound really different. I tried to buy a companion to mine for years and never found one that sounded anything like it. The reason I'm saying this is that yours probably doesn't sound like anybody else's so if you're really trying to replicate it it probably won't happen. That said, Acoustica Audio did a BA6A plugin with Greg Wells called ElRey, and it's very cool.
