I heard about NoiseAsh on Gearslutz... The real surprise has been the Pultec and Neve emulations. Depth and great sound shapers. I’m a musician who wants quick results to mix quickly and send my tracks out for professional finishing. These delivery in spades, lush and solid, quick to dial in and give a very sophisticated sound. They have that hardware sound, authoritative and focused. I consider them a go-to for the mixbus, and and a central part of my sound. Thanks for the hard work and dedication it takes to give us such wonderful tools to work with, I’ll be interested to see what you guys come up with next. I’m sure something good!
