    There are plenty of them on the market so I'm wondering what's your favorite Fairchild emulation? Could never hear the original unit myself and i've tried and use the Puigchild and the one from IK, but how close are they from the real thing?
    I've heard the one frim UAD is good but cant afford it unfortunately...
    Curious to hear which one you use, on which material and why??

    IK MULTIMEDIA - Model 670 ( € 25 )

    A replica of a Fairchild 670 in its prime. The sound is quite appealing and can make a lot of intermediate stops, from airy to brutal. In the absence of an original (currently on loan) only the comparison with the UAD remains.

    In short, I have both accepted. Both emulations have their own personal touch. While the UAD is more courageous, the T-Racks Fairchild still remains somewhat transparent in extreme settings. Well then. The M / S Matrix dominates both, so the comparison remains a matter of taste.

    I have 3 favourites and just pick em up on random no specific reason, and change to another if it doesn't work for the track. the IK, Overloud and Puigchild.

    i think Overloud made a nice job on putting three units on one plugin (gem comp 670). I don't know if it's close to the original since all three units they based the plugin on sound pretty different, but i find it's more useful than the others i've tried if you're going to use it on various sources and purposes.

    I've heard the original and UAD versions in comparative videos only, and as much as i hate UAD i have to say it sounds amazing, but very different to everything else (yes, including the original). So who knows, maybe there's more than one original hardware fairchild sound.
