Hits and Misses Part #1




Soundtoys Decapitator is 1 of the plethora of analog saturation plugins on the market. What separates this 1 from the pack is the vast amount of distinct and usable sounds u can get. U actually have 2 work hard to get a sound that doesn't sound good and if u want to grind it up the punish button is always a click away. Especially useful on the drum buss but in the right doses it can add some oomph to just abt anything. Definitely a hit and u can find it @ www.soundtoys.com/products/Decapitator/ .
Antares Mic Mod EFX on the other hand is a complete waste. Doesn't even come within a lightyear of it's claims to "model classic and exotic microphones." Rlly not more than a glorified eq and a poor excuse 4 1 @ that. antarestech.com/products/mic_mod_efx.shtml is the lnk if u are a plugin completist.
