I've pretty exclusively been in the box with all manner of software. I visted a local producer and seen how he does things ( mostly sample based thru an MPC) I was wondering how I can get better warmth out of my digital sounds because everything comes out soulful and warm that he does. Toy Box Scholars - Damage Control - YouTube I know for a fact that he records to tape.
But that aside I want to run my FL Studio thru something piece of hardware that will give my instruments that nice soulful sound. Is there anything anyone would suggest that would do it in one stop. I've looked into vsts but havent found anything exclusively for saturation or warmth. I've found compressors modelled after vintage gear but its really not the same.
If you turn digital to analog how does it fill the missing data?
I'm think like some kind of outboard or mixer. I currently have an MBOX 2 + Presonus Eureaka for pre amp.
