be nice to see Phaze scope to compare also
What would you go first for ssl fusion or bus+ cant Decide!
I dig the plugin much better than the hardware listening to this, because the EQ plugin is overall warmer and fuller, plus an option for low end boost. But this also could be due to AD converters on the SSL hardware and the audio interface possibly or other variables.
Sorry the violet eq is the weakest part of the sold state fusion with all due respect it’s boring on the hardware! So the plugin is gonna be weaker too! pass
Thank you for this video.
I would like to raise the argument that converters have a sound.
And the difference that you are feeling and proving could be related both to your power conditioning and converter sound, both for the frequency and transient response in question.
All the best
Well Dan Worrell proved the plugin is no different than a stock EQ.
Now you can sale your SSL analog stuff. Because it makes totaly no difference if you use the plugin version. And btw Dan Worral figured out with the plugin doctor that the violet EQ does exactly the same as every other fab EQ fab or other for free. SSL = Solid Sales Logic.
According Dan Worrall analysis the plugin is gimmick. Nothing but very limited linear eq with useless extra gain knob.
I love these series of videos you’ve created around the fusion. I feel like you’re the most detailed and blunt person on mixing and plugins and hardware. You’re awesome man! Love your videos! They’ve helped me tremendously.!!
Is this worth 34 bucks, currently on sale, as is the entire Fusion line. However I have a feeling they are going to bundle it in the Slate sub as they have merged with the same parent company?
I like the plugin. It sounds more modern.
Hi again David, thanks for the video! Have you tried the Dangerous Bax EQ plugin from PA? Which one would you choose regardless the cost? Tks in advance!
Very nice and helpful series of videos, especially for some of us that will never come across such a hardware module. Software plugins have come a long way during the last years and software engineers have really done a great job on emulating hardware modules. But still to my ears hardware sounds fuller, warmer and smoother. Is there a way to compensate for that? I don't really know. Anyway, keep up the good work!
Can someone explain to process on how he did this with the pro-q3? Was that just white noise? I have a few hardware units I want to compare with plugins this way.
David this is your best series and work, I love this video and how you explain everything. This HARDWARE vs Plugin war is dumb these tools are equally efficient to mix
Was in complete agreement with David all the way through the video.
What i'm happy about though, is that not only did the software eq get close enough, but it didn't mess with the imaging or definition like plugins typically do. This just confirms my belief that the last frontier for plugins is to get right is compression and distortion.
We can get away safely with well designed plugin eq, reverb, delay, and various fx, also transparent compression and other dynamics (if they dont smear) - but there is still too much to compute for hardware compression and distortion.
Hardware all day
Very very close bro the plugin on this test I'd say they did a good job specially with extra feature of the fat button....in the vintage drive it was day and night and noticeable even while playing it on the phone I had to use my headphones 🎧 in order to judge this test great video.
Good Video. Kinda hard to mess up a high pass/low pass filter, sounds pretty similar. Do you actually use these filters in your mastering? You stated you don't like it and some nuances, so I'm guessing not. Still having a hard time deciding why anyone would use this unit for mastering. I'd be more interested in seeing you do a video how you use this mastering an actual song for a client. Half the features aren't even usable imo for mastering or up to mastering standards. Imo the compressor falls short also especially compared to other mastering compressors. People I think like the stereo image feature the most. Still having a difficult time justifying owning this unit especially for mastering. These videos are solidifying my decision even more.
