    I had the opportunity to make some tests with OAQ v2.1 and I'm sorry to say when it comes to it's own sound, it's snakeoil, sadly.

    I had no problems to reproduce the sound with a pure digital EQ and couldn't differentiate those two in a blind test with various instruments and frequencies.

    Although you can measure (and see) added harmonics, even if you turn Drive fully up they're hardly audible with sine waves and not at all with instruments.

    The only thing that's left is to join this chorus

    Havent tried it yet.
    This guy`s logic, not yours No Avenger, the developers, is weird. Although i like some of his plugins a lot, its weird because he continually abandons projects and releases new ones.
    I found pure eq really good, but the LP filter acted weird and 2db only operation made it almost impossible for mastering, real shame as the eq sounded great.
    Perhaps you should try the British channel, i havent yet, but if its in the ballpark of the nvq it should sound good.

    The darkest pit of my mind
    I'm not surprised at all, as my tests of AO plugins showed me not to bother with their plugins. They got better [as in less buggy and better sounding] a bit since the last time I tested them, but still - there are so many great plugins that work more smooth/stable and better. :shrug:

    Of course, some of his plugins work better, some are rather dodgy... kinda hit and miss with AO plugins.

    I'm glad to see you posting again Von_Steyr. Lovely nostalgic avatar as always. Hello and cheers! :wink:

    Nasty is not meant for this kind of situation. Nasty is useful if someone criticize another one the hard way, ot things like that.
    The fact that you want the result published here, does not fit into the use of nasty vote ...
    I suggest that you revert your vote..

    wasn't impressed by the sound a year ago, but I don't got the "golden ears" so hurray for me I guess.:shalom:

    Personally, I would be very interested in a dissection of acoustic Diamond, especially the HMF band and what it does to transients.

    Really? This is your answer to my detailed explanation?
    Well it seems that you will have to fit in the rules of Audiosex, as abusing rating is not allowed.
    So
    1. I'm reverting your vote.
    2. Now that you have received the explanation I suggest that you stick to this definition/use.
    3. Read the rules.

    Thanks, You saved me some time. As the first Analog Obsession plugins were released, there was this big hype I did not get. Because for me they were a mediocre sounding buggy mess. I was about to try them again. But after reading this I don't think they`ll replace one of my favorites.
