Ok, I'm a little behind the curve when it comes to the \"Neve\" sound, SSL sound, etc.. I just knows what sounds good. Anyways, I was just curious.. I know what I like. For my projects I have BFD with the XFL and of course my UAD1 =). I was wondering for those of you so inclined: Mike Portnoy's drum sound on Dream Theater's \"Train of Thought\" I think is fabulous. It sounds a bit different than the other albums.. and seems to have a SHWAP! sound to it. Somewhat dry, yet punchy... yet TIGHT. I was wondering if perhaps that was the result of maybe some Neve equipment (ie. maybe a Neve bus compressor?) or perhaps the Neve EQ.. or maybe just some other \"mojo.\" I currently have the 88rs and I'm planning to make the jump on my remaining voucher for now.
