I had planned on buying a couple of other items before I saw the announcement that Warm audio waz releasing a neve 1073 clone. I bought it immediately after finding mickrich clips on another forum after searching for a few minutes on google. I havent had a chance to put any mic sources into it yet, but running line level stuff into for mixing, I am incredibly impressed with it. It behaves as I expect it to after using 73 modeled plugins, and there is a nice and useful/musical resonance bump when high passing that doesnt happen in the plugins (dont know if it happens on the original neve hardware). I got the 273eq, so I can work stereo tracks, but also because I found running a kick through two plugins chained got some very interesting and aggressive results for metal. I will post some stuff I have done when I get a chance, but wanted to at least share something on it, since there wasnt a lot of talk about it on any of the forums I generally use.
