Hey there windyhill. I believe that you are spot on with your observations. Many engineers and composers have their toolbox and some, larger than others. The way I feel about gear is simply that. Who wouldn’t want to have all the tools in the world, right? What’s silly to me is the fact that some engineers and composers have “secrets.” Lol there really aren’t any secrets when it comes to engineering as well as composition. Rather, simply developed technique. All of us alike had to start someone, and I’m pretty sure we’ve all come a long way. Taking all this into consideration, my mastering chain is almost 100% analog. When called for, I run my 2 buss through an Inward Connections mastering EQ. Deq-1 ( I believe). For compression, I use the summit audio DCL 200 or, also my favorite :D, the Innertube Atomic Stereo Squeezebox. I then route back in to my DAW, Protoools, and lightly limit to bring to commercial loudness. Then I dither via external converter. I don’t bounce to disk, I record. When it comes to driving a plugin into the red zone, it’ll never sound right because it is digital aka math. The analog overdrive sound is great especially with tubes because they change in character depending on their age, hours they’ve been on, and many other variables. Anyhow, when looking at any analog gear, pay attention to the THD. You’d be surprised by some units readings.

Thanks cyclopticr. It has always been interesting how this subject easily and quickly ties into many others. I agree with alumoaudio and jhunger also. Many instruments including guitar, as well as brass(non-cinematic), seem to be virtually dull and fake sounding when using even the best vi’s out there in today’s market. I am a pianist and have difficulty hearing what is real vs. virtual when it comes to pianos! I choose use analog gear to breath life into my virtual instruments as well as play the actual instrument when possible. I’ve even gone as far as sampling my own instruments and mapping them out in Kontakt. The reason why I use analog gear is because I believe the subconscious mind does notice. The problem I see, however, is our generation’s subconscious mind may quite honestly believe that the “virtual” sound is in fact the true acoustic sound. Think about it…How much of what we hear today, on the radio, internet, on TV, and in the theater is actually a real musician playing a real instrument? Lastly, at the end of the day, do I think this will help when trying to achieve new clients? Though I wish it would, I sure don’t :/
