On the one hand, do we really need yet another 1176? I mean the 1176 is rapidly becoming the 1176 because that is how many variants there ARE of it.
BUT, on the other hand you have to hand it to R2R. Once again, they are on the case bringing us more stuff than we know what to do with..
Bottom line.. Very appreciative of all they do for us!!!! And DECI of course :)

the ALL Button mode is the same like 4:1 mode on the previous one. this one has same version number, so it's the same ?

Anyway, if anyone got bored with 1176, check out the new Analog Obsession FETCB plugin that just released today. It's a Trident CB-9146 emulation. It's an FET compressor too.
It makes no sense to say you’re not good at it. It’s like saying, “I’m not good at being a monk.” You are either living as a monk or you’re not.

Mmm...Analog Obsession is no good from my experience. Have they improved their sound with their latest plugin?
  Member 8.11.2023 34
Analog obsession are the worst, the LA2A get nothing to LA2A and others too. can do measurement in plugging doctor or in your DAW
It's just cos it's free

In this one all button = limit curve, so no issue in this vers don't know for previous

quote by Sylenth.Will.FallOn the one hand, do we really need yet another 1176?

Context is important. Subscribers can get this for free & it's very cheap otherwise.

And that being said, this is very well made imo. Effective oversampling, low CPU usage, low install size, freely scaleable, beautiful UI & most importantly it has that instantly recognizable FET attack/release down perfectly. As for saturation; it sounds good to my ears. Honestly I've heard so many different harmonics come out of FET emulations I don't know what's authentic or not but this seems competent. A good amount of even harmonics. Drive is volume compensated well enough.

No noise or stereo tolerance modeling but...I couldn't give less of a shit about that. Ruins the mix imo.

Will be buying legit, didn't hear about it until I saw it here (that often happens)

Wow, there must be over 300 different 1176 vsts to choose from

Yet i still can't pick which one to roll with
  Member 8.10.2023 4 22
There is indeed a shit ton of 1176 plugins. From what I've heard however, this is one of the best if not the best. If u have tried it, what do you think?
  Member 8.11.2023 34
This one if you do measurement is close to a PA 77 purple, very fast release too, distortion close ....., thing you don't get with overloud or waves (old emulation) or others.
And it's small size, light cpu, price ok,
Don't like PA TMT, so can be a good alternative, but PA are pretty good in emulation, where some others brands aren't. So if it's close to the 77 purple sonic academy did a go job
  Member 14.04.2015 176
lol...... low key this is the best 1176 as it stands... only purple by PA comes close
  Member 3.12.2013 2 135
I gotta say, for a very long time my go-to fet/1176 is black76 by IK, like many years perhaps from the first time they released the T-Racks plugin. I never use UAD, so I have no experience with it.

but this one just replaced my black76 on the first try. Love the sound of it and the release time is faster, and to my ear, sounds much more crispy and snappier... love it.

Some of the comments said it was close to MC77 by PA, never had the chance to try it yet, maybe someday when there is a single release of MC77 here instead of part of the PA bundle.
  Member 23.11.2021 136
For me it was kinda the same thing. Obliterates my favorite 1176 and uninstalled it to be replaced by this one
  Member 23.11.2021 136
This is a hidden gem among a world of 1176's. I used a lot of them and my favorite was the overloud one, which is quite boutique sounding for my ears. But this is lushful even at all buttons engaged and can be gritty with the distortion knob. Really sounds like the Purple MC 77, but less smacky for my ears. Uninstalled the Overloud one and i'm using this one for real. Thanks R2R and DECi

Thank you all guys for your technical comments. I didn't knew which 1176 to try. It seems that I have to try this one and the PA one.
It's so good to read such an informative thread as this one.
  Resident 7.07.2022 16
I agree. Thanks for all the informative comments. It's still on BF/CM-sale. Snapped it for around 9 USD. Nobrainer.
