I was excited to try this plug in. The recent 1176 package is brilliant, and I had hopes the Shadow Hills would be comparable in quality. It is not. Where the new 1176 sound like analog, this thing sounds digital in the worst way; no depth, no life, way too heavy-handed. A shame. Even with a $50 coupon I couldn't buy it, and it left such a bad taste in my mouth I let the coupon expire without buying anything.
The plug comes off as a marketing scheme for the hardware. It is not worth the bloated price. It somehow succeeds at making three companies look bad.
Nice GUI though.
So, UA, please don't repeat this mistake. If you are going to release new plugs, aim for being the best. Otherwise, why bother?
sounds like la2a and neve combo to me but quality is not that good.
UA you should do this emu by yourself!
I respect BX (bx digital and elysia products is amazing) but in this case - SORRY!
please remember and know your roots, this is not simply a business,
this is a VIRTUE.
write this onto your hearts and let your mind follow this path,
it is not a shame to take some steps into the wrong direction,
but it is the end of the road if you do never admit and change.
Demoed the SH Mastering compressor, but was really disappointed. Didn't sound as good as expected. In fact, it didn't do anything that I liked. GUI looks weird too on my 27" screen. Given the high price and DSP usage, this is a real downer.
