    I'll be doing a combination of DI/mic'd guitars. I've got a couple amp sims already, and (maybe surprisingly...) I actually like the stock sim with Logic for the Vox models. With the number of inputs on the Apollo 8, I'll be able to do some multi-mic'ing and record a DI, too, which will be nice.

    Huh, I knew Slate had some kind of modeling mic system, but first I've heard of the Spheres. Have you tried it? I'm a little bit skeptical, but heck, modeling of all sorts has come some serious distance... Would be interesting to hear a shoot-out pitting the Spheres against good examples of the originals.

    My preference for Neve over SSL is based on work years ago and more ignorant ears, so I'll no doubt demo the SSL, too.
    I was in your shoos last week, when you register your Apollo (if you didn't yet) you will be offered a one time registration offer, 100$ less for the 3 plugs, so I jumped on it and you have 45 days to decide which plugs you want, plus you get 100$ and another 25$ to be used within 30 days. So I started the demos for 14 Days did recordings and comparison and I decided The Neve 88Rs, the Ampex, and OCW. and for the extra 125$ I got the EMT 140.
    I noticed that when I decided on my 3 plugs I got a downloaded file, that file will authorize and reset your demos, you can still authorize using the panel and save your demo reset from that file for later, but for the single plugin there was no downloaded file and when you authorize, it resets the demos at the same time. Just to let you know, so you can time it wisely and use the demo periods to the max.
    Welcome on board and good luck in you fantastic musical adventure!

    You gotta have the 1073. If you tracking bass, the b15 is really good too.
    Apollo 8, Quad Satellite TB, UAD-2 Solo, and an old UAD-1 Mackie in a box somewhere.

    Yeah, I do have my eye on the B15, too- I love the tone of a real B15. The bass player in the project at hand favors a Boogie (which I kinda hate the sound of....), but I'll be grabbing a DI signal too.

    I suspect if it comes to being able to purchase just one additional plugin it'll be the 1073. But maybe trial auditioning will surprise me.

    I don't know about the opinions of others, but I have just aqcuired the SSL and it is really doing good things to my guitar. I don't have an Apollo and use an RME Fireface UC together with a Kemper. The SSL manages to be both bright and sweet. Quite possibly I use a little more brightness than I would normally do as a result. The funny thing is that it's brighter but does not sound it - if that makes sense. The SSL sounds much more direct than the Neve 88RS - although I do like both.
