Default Re: To HEAT or not to HEAT?

In the end I'm just testing it before I make a decision to upgrade my vanilla Pro Tools (permanent license) to Pro Tools Ultimate + HEAT. I know there are plugins that do something similar (tube / tape saturation) but none is integrated in the mixer like HEAT (which i think is elegant).

Besides the sound, I also I like the blinking yellow lights in the mixer tracks when HEAT is working, reminds me of vintage tube amps
Great - if you like it, go for it
