It’s a subtle warmth saturation type of plug. So for me that didn’t effect how my 2 tracks sounded

Ok I thought through it’s saturation would add some degree of compression and whether you would need to compensate for that.... I guess in the end you just have to go with what your ears are telling you. So looking forward to getting HEAT and giving a whirl.

Clip-gain gives you lots more control over HEAT.

Good Catch! Thanks. Changed but the title of all the posts will still have the wrong spelling until I am at a stationary computer.

I never use Decapitator, haven't enjoyed it but will look at it again. I guess I think of it as a distortion primarily.

Heat is very convenient but I end up turning it off after mixing through it, too much detail smearing.

Radiator is always on my snare bus, "Drive Out" setting.

Sonnox Dynamics have a *warmth* parameter that is great.

Slate vcc is really good but clumsy to use. It was easier as a stand-alone plug.

Lately True Iron is getting lots of use. It's addictive.

Yes one of a few plugins we got suckered into after watching Snake Oil guy and now at $39 it is surely a No Brainer !!!!

The best transformer emulation ever made!

Really neat to change color for master and track use

You are right, this is my experience as well in general

This is also true and I totally forgot about this one precisely because of this reason the rack GUI

+1 today marks 3 weeks since the article posted which implied was happening within 2-3 weeks. So hopefully we’ll hear something soon! I have a couple of tracks I want to get out there which I would love to run through HEAT prior but can’t wait too long... I’ll be trying this True Iron plug I just got on them today.
