We all wanna be big, big stars.
We got different reasons for that but I’m pretty sure we share the common fantasy of going to the studio, sitting behind the console, snorting blow while getting blown by height-challenged groupies.
Or maybe that’s just me.
Regardless, that image just doesn’t seem as cool if the console was replaced with a laptop – much less a mac mini like I have now.
I guess I’ll just have to cope. But, alas, there’s hope. To my rescue, there are plugins designed to emulate the console sound.
“Yeah, but can I snort cocaine off it?” I can hear the advanced guitarists asking. The answer is no; at least not directly. But who cares! They’ll make your mixes sound better and you need to lay off the nose candy anyway.
So in this video I shot out Sonimus Satson vs Console4 in a plugin comparison shootout. I had been using Satson CM (free download with Computer Music). I had also been using Console 4, perhaps incorrectly, on a previous mix. One of these puppies was going in my mix template and I had to decide which once and for all.
The song used was “Maple Enemata (8BE)” I made just for the occasion.
As a bonus, dear reader, I’ll also provide for you a download of an old comparison I did with Slate VCC v1.0 in addition to my lossless link to the Satson vs Airwindows audio (see below).
