    This is a follow up thread to this one for those who are not fed up with 2-bus compressors tests :lol: or need some reference.

    http://www.ultimatemetal.com/forum/backline/888902-slate-fg-grey-vs-hardware-4k-bus-compressors.html

    Many thanks, Ermz, for the track provided, great mix.

    There are 3 different compressors on 5 files:

    -Waves 4k Bus Compressor.
    -IK Multimedia Bus Compressor.
    -IGS S-type 500 (3 different tracks: -Stereo; Dual Mono and Dual Mono preceded by 2 CAPI vp28 in line mode to give it some transformers action just for fun.

    All files are 24-bit/44 kHz and RMS matched to the files in the other thread so you can compare the different compressors.

    I definitely preferred number 5, it really seemed to really open up the stereo image and tighten up the low end.

    Fuck, I lost the piece of paper where I wrote down the results. Oh well, almost nobody cares anyway.

    OK, out of memory I think it was something like: (edit: I found it)

    1 IGS st
    2 IGS DM
    3 Tracks
    4 Waves
    5 IGS DM + CAPI

    So yes, good choice, Tempe. Thanks for chiming in.

    *Not really sure about these ones.

    I really want these kinds of shoot outs encouraged in this forum, but I have to admit, the last 3 comments made me laugh, I mean no disrespect.
