I love analog channel, it does a different thing to a mix/track then others. But with that being said.
I would try:

Cranesong Phoenix

Reel Tape Saturation

I use VW as well and it is VERY aggressive. But sounds great!

Inflator and Vintage Warmer have nothing to do with Analog Channel.
I imagine your are looking for something like Phoenix.

I wouldn't bother with Real Tape I recorded for years on tape and pushing it just doesn't do what I expect it to do unlike analogue channel 2 on which I can great overloaded drums from with a rich bottom end (Real tape forget that!) . I find AC2 really useful and am able to sit things back in the mix depending on the type or speed etc I tried a demo of Cransong Pheonix once and was impressed if I had the money I would have brought it in addition to AC2 give it a go if you're not digging AC2, it might just be what your looking for. Got a friend whose opinion I very much trust and he swears by it.

NB It has confusing controls with options like lustre etc don't worry about it just flick between the types and you'll find what you're after.

Cheers

Default Re: Alternative to McDSP Analog Channel Vintage warmer

I forgot to say vintage warmer isn't the same as a tape sat plug in. Be aware it can be very dangerous I had a few mixes in to master where they'd put it on the buss overcranked it and it was terrible, it had like an L2 removed all transients it was like a wall of fuzz, I had to send it back to get the mix bus "unwarmed" You can of course do the same damage with the tape sat plug ins so just be careful and be aware whats going on.

Cheers
