One word, Fabulous! Preamp, Eq and extra features... just awesome. It sounds stunning on every track. Especially drums, guitars, vocals. Put it on the track, give some pre, eq and the result will be mersmerizing. You guys just nailed it...

M. Ugur Memis

Producer, Mixing-Mastering Engineer

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!

Real edgy sound. Great for getting that 70's and 80's rock vocal or bad ass drum. At first it was lacking finness in the top end but I found myself reaching for it more and more. It just has a thing.

I use it more than I thought

Need 31102 Console Eq
★★★★★
I tried it out of curiosity. As a lot of mixing engineer, I already have plenty of EQ (outboard and software) to choose from so I wasn't sure if I was going to use this one. Big mistake, I ended up using it a lot more than I thought. In my opinions it shines on everything that need serious tone shaping : guitars, background vocals even lead vocals in busy mix. It has a rock'n'roll attitude that is very attractive.
