But as you would anticipate, if I'm using the NLS pregain it becomes a less favourable idea to use them in conjunction with other pregains.

Interesting POV

The only thing that the Analog Button does on the Waves SSL plugin is add a 60 cycle hum. This info is straight from a Waves tech support guys mouth. It's interesting to note how some hear more distortion as a result of engaging it. Once again, no offense intended, the power of expectation bias is quite profound. I would demo each one of these plugins first and then take other user's personal opinion's as extra info into account.

He wasn't talking bout the analog button, but yeah I think most people know that the analog button just introduces 50/60 cycle hum

That's right I was talking about the NLS, and in particular I would recommend using it conjunction with the SSL EQ. Pity the NLS a doesn't have an API flavour.

Yeah interesting about that distortion note, could it perhaps be caused by the 60Hz tone causing harmonic modulation with the other frequencies??

I was referring to references to the Analog button introducing distortion that were sated earlier in this thread.

As for the interaction I suppose that anything is possible but the 60 cycle hum is pretty far down in the noise floor compared to whatever source is being EQ'd, hence the EQ frequencies are going to be way up there in comparison as well.

Is the Hum pre or post eq??

The reason why I ask is if its post, much of it would be lost when a HPF filter is applied

Actually hum will be lost if hum is pre EQ (or EQ is post hum) Gonna try to tweak EQ and see if the hum changes :)

Yep, that's what I'm saying. Let us know the verdict
