Say what ?! It is a luxury and a pleasure to have a "piece" of this legendary console at home!
I use it mainly for recording (Pro Tools) before attacking my sound card (one of Orpheus Prismsound). The difference is immediately heard, especially as the quality of the sound card is excellent. I am appealing to a sound engineer to prepare some "presets" around which I honed my settings over time. Because it takes time to adapt to unless they have already worked on consoles where models are from these groups. However, mastery comes quickly (practicing). Immediately means treatment on her and as soon as you turn the knobs!
I mainly use an Akai MPC from home for my drums / samples, various synthesizers but also bass and electric guitar. I spend all my instruments by SSL.
For voice, I tend to attack with something finer, gender NEVE ... But it's a matter of taste and SSL do very well work.
The preamp / EQ / Compressors and filters are of very good quality, sound SSL 100% analog. Very high dynamic and some that you have a sound card with good converters ...
I have nothing saved without since!
I do not see what compare these slices so IS THE SON SSL !!!
A danger still, blame others! In fact, have at least 6 slices would be happiness, but the addition would be very salty! Especially since my goal is to have the cleanest possible instruments taken and then go in the studio mix (on a SSL 4000 G for that matter)! And so I do not want to do everything at home, even if I have very good plugs (including SSL and API LEXICON) Pro Tools.
Another downside more "serious", the two channels are not linké, let me explain. These are two separate tranches, it therefore can not apply a perfect stereo setting. By using his ears we can apply it to a mix, but with caution and know-how.
In the end, two good slices to put a key, a sound level and undeniable to any professional recording project even mix and while staying at home.
