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!

I'm grateful that Noiseash guys have revamped some of these earlier plugs that just aren't as good sonically as what they're capable of today. So get over it folks! They're not trying to rip you off, just give you improved options. That costs them time and money.

Love it!! Boon for the music.

Really really like this console eq, great sound and the mid/side channels really help the mix. My tracks sound like real rock stars now.

I use it more than I thought

★★★★★
5 5 1
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.

Blown away 🙂

I am using real 2 pieces of 31102 units. I know the original sound. But man, this plugin is just like original, even much more better. I can't believe to my ears, one of the greatest sounds ever been made. With a combination of modern fetures & classic tone, I looovee the way it sounds on every track. I definately recommend it!
