I am just testing those new FairChildren as well as Pultecs as well as 1176s etc - thanks to the XMass-Sale I have them all now... I am very pleased with those goodies!
BUT it is like it is - the UAD Quad looks old now - those new versions using 10 times as much DSP then the Legacy versions... rendering a single Quad system to something like we had 10 years ago when adding the first UAD1 to the system... Buäää
I just picked up the UAD MXR & Fairchildren as well.
I only run two solo cards so DSP power is at a premium.
I find the new Fairchilds to be quite usable as far as DSP goes.
I use the legacy versions on individual tracks (LA-2A, 1176, etc)
and save the MKII versions for Groups.
I get a lot of mileage out of those 2 solos but it is time to grab a used quad off of ebay.
They are finally starting to sell at the right prices. ($500.00 - $650.00)
Anyway to get back on topic...
These aren't Fairchild sims but great compressors just the same.
You didn't mention 32bit vs 64bit so make sure you've got that correct.
