One of the liberating aspects of the way in which a lot of artists make their music these days is
that there are a lot of affordable tools available which are (arguably) almost as good as expensive
(and unattainable for most artists) high-end gear. I agree with APK's earlier point in this regard.
Yep, like Burgundy, Eqs and vintage guitar valve amps, its down to 'taste' ultimately. Naturally
some people have a lot more experience to judge their choices by, but others shouldn't feel that
their opinions are not valid.
Immersion, you might want to try out these Lexicon Impulses from 'Noisevault':
There's PCM70 and PCM91 sets there amongst many others.
Really great, if they are professional done impulses that is...
I know about Noise vault for some time now, last time I did try to get some cabinet impulses for my POD.
I see the PCM impulses have got 4 stars, so I guess it is not perfect, however I will try to have a look
at the forum to see if there is any feedback. I am very interested to try anyhow, but
there is a big difference in quality of impulses, that is what differ "halls of fame" which is recording in 32 bit professional studio, in such circumstances you can get very near the reality with impulses.
