OK guys, I want your views…
As with probably most people, there isn’t an endless budget. Being part of MMWA is really upping my game, but costing me a fortune in kit (thanks Danny!
I have Slate subscription, UAD quad with ATR 104, Manley Voxbox and API vision strip. I also have soundtoys, Fabfilter and both Valhalla. Along with various other ‘pre school’ stuff from Waves etc, so generally a lucky boy. My PC is recent and massively spec’ data.
What I don’t want to do is just to be ‘all the gear, no idea’. I want my tracks to sound better. We used Altiverb this week. My question is; would I benefit more from Altiverb than say SSL buss compressor. I know they are completely different by the way. That is actually the point. So, I could get more UAD power and put ATR 104 on more channels instead of Slate tape. Again, completely different.
I am guessing there will be varying views, so I just wanted to find out yours. Over time, I am sure I will get more than just one more tool, but right now based on what I have, would you say will make the most difference?
P.s. I am producing uplifting trance mainly and like a nice bright, full, but with clarity/space sound. Think epic super saw, solid kick…
Over to you… (and thanks in advance for helping me save my kids from inheritance tax)
