    Hi Thunderhouse

    Thanks for your detailed reply!

    Are you saying that the slowest attack on the 1176 is still fast enough for catching the peaks? Or is the 1176 purely for aggressiveness and not for taming the peaks?

    Very nice analogy with the guitars. I guess you are right. Somehow I suspected that there was a way of doing both things in one take. Would love to know how Warren did this during recording of the Save Me song.

    I cannot compare the hardware with the Apollo plugins, but of all plugins I've used the UAD ones really move me in a way that I can't explain very well. Maybe it is that illusive word "musical" that I hear producers use while gazing in the distance 🙂

    Thanks mate!
