Hi biomuse - well it is in the sense that if something is "S*L like" and some people say it's (Sonalksis) modelled after the S*L 4000, that perhaps we might like to talk about it here in the "4KD Pro" thread. Certainly not trying to bite you there; I could have been more specific about what I was driving at in the first place.biomuse wrote:It's a nice compressor with a few different characters. Not sure this is the place for that question, though. Try KVR?
If this were a web commerce store my post is more like "Those who liked/thought about buying SV-315mkII also bought..."
<< And yes, I'm on the beta tester team here/moderator, I'd not be going slightly OT on our own forum for no reason!
I see Mercado likes the SV-315mkII for some things too.Mercado_Negro wrote:The Sonalksis SV-315mkII is a legend, one of those truly amazing plug-ins with a very nice sound. It's the only plug-in I've heard which doesn't thin out kicks during compression. If I need punchy drums I go for The Glue but if I need a tight and solid low-end on my kick then the SV-315mkII is my "go-to" compressor. Sometimes I use both: the SV-315mkII with an attack of 10ms or 8ms and auto-release with mode II for that tight bottom end and then The Glue right after it with a short attack (1ms or 3ms) and also auto-release.
Certainly no disrespect to Alex, I just think it's great to compare and contrast things! For me the demo doesn't contain ratios and settings I'm more interested in. Just trying to see if it's something I should be buying as an alternative to some other things I have for things like smooth vocal processing (I'm not so interested in drums).
