Each source needs a proper tool, and someone is happy to pay big money for a different spice. I think emerald and white can coexist, there is not a winner. But this white has a clear value, in my opinion it is the best p-inspired device in the software realm, at least it is what we tried to achieve!
In my opinion it is good just because
- the original device is amazing
- the emulation is sampled and not just derived from classic circuit modeling - which gives a good approximation, but not the real thing and it does not take account of imperfections; it is also strictly not minimum phase, like it is happening on so many plugin emulations lately.
this is your answer jfjer put in a more beautiful way by giancarlo!
Murano i chuck on my master because of it's ability to lift forth snap and punch and also has a very beautiful somewhat dark timbre that i liked on this current project, whilst Emerald without the pre works my Drum Bus because i loved what it did to the low end but it's tonality reduced some sharpness to the overall drum mix so i also boosted a bit of highs and: - voila! - there my vision was (god i love working with these tools!).
I have the Pearl working a hat that needed some dimension but a strong not too sharp character to not devour the snap of the kick and snare transients. and yesterday i chuck the White too on my master and played around and i could control the overall mix effortlessly, because of it's transparency and my already colored mix, it was perfect to be able to control just the dimension of sound with.
needless to say, Scarlet might also do the job, so as other eq's! i'm still experimenting with this particular mix, and that what's so much fun with Acusticas products, if you have a vision you can just jump in there and try, and it'll reveal itself.
