Reply To: Q/A with State of Mind..
Jep i owned api2500 too, too slow for dnb drums but really loved the output gain smashing on mid basses. Those op amps sound lovely when pushed. But had too make a tough selection between this and a synth. Wish i could hoard hardware, so much inspiration. Even low budget Warm audio pultec has real cojones to sub bass compared to softubes. I mean you are right that without hardware you can live without but software is essential but why choose at all? I’m sure anyone can afford few bits of a good gear nowadays. Just don’t update your phone/ipad every 2 years etc. Prioritys.
