Hey guys, Been mixing a track today for fun, and I thought it would be cool to make a shoot-out of it. For the last few years I've looked around desperately for ways to create a 'faux' console ITB. I absolutely hate the clean ITB sound and I do everything I can during tracking and mixing to get around it. Recently I've bought Nebula 3 and I've been getting more and more into using Alex B's 'Classic Logic Console' programs. Essentially these are just Nebula 'impulses' that you apply to all of your tracks, then all of your busses, and then your master bus. It's meant to simulate the way a real console would saturate and glue your tracks together. Anyway here are the explanations between both tracks. ITB: A bit deceiving because it's a straight export through my GSSL compressor. The lead vocals also have a bit of Millennia Origin on them. All the raw tracks also had Alex B's 'Line Input' Program on them. So in effect this version has a fair bit of Nebula on it too. NebulaSSL: I applied a bunch of Alex B's bus programs to my busses. One on drums, bass, guitars, lead vox, backing vox & the master bus. And without further ado, here they are. If you hear clipping, I apologize profusely. I just had a single clip/limiter on the end and I wanted to hear this track roughly at commercial volumes to A/B the export.
