Kush UBK1 isn't similar to phoenix...etc since it's a compressor plugin

Anyway, I have Heat, phoenix, decapitator and tape head from Massey. All sound different.
But what I use on every mix is Heat and phoenix on top of that on lot of individual track (drum shell, bass and vocal mostly).
Decapitator get less use, but sometimes it work for vocal and drum shell put on top of what I wrote before.
Tape head is great, but kinda like a one trick pony that only work on some track. Not really subtle but when it work...

same here, HEAT and Phoeix in every project.
sometimes AC2 on the 2bus instead of Phoenix (very rarely though).
Used to use AC1 before I got Phoenix....hven't touched it since.
decapitator only for special effects etc

Well I did actually, right after I posted that image here (since I realized that I had a stupid excuse for not doing it earlier)... But nothing so far. It's not like I'm expecting something, but it would be nice to get a positive feedback though

Have you used the UBK-1? I Know it's a compressor, but I was talking about the saturation and density controls. From what I gathered some people use it for those more then the compressor. But I haven't used it that's why I'm asking. Also, the other tape emulations most probably all have a certain compression too of course, depending on how hot you drive it.

Yes I use it every day
Density do something that still remain voodoo for me. Greg wrote a cool thing about it on gearslutz but can't really remember it atm.
Of course you can use the saturation alone, but never tryed since I always have Heat on no matter what.
UBK1 is something like a fatso with different possibility. Of course you can squach track and get this in your face sound (but most plugin comp can do that), while still have character and vibe. But the most interesting thing this can do is gluing tracks together, and put those track from front to back.
I don't know any other plugin that can do that. Kinda the same effect you get when you put a 2254 on bg vx (put with an other sound of course).

You really need to try it Max
