Happy New Year!
I'm considering purchasing 1 or 2 Colour palette kits. But the amount of available colours is pretty overwhelming, to say the least, hahaha.So, I'm thinking- where better to ask for opinions about the Colour palette, and its different colours than here ?Any users here ?Is the colour Palette something you use intensily, or is it just a fun object that you use occasionally ? Which colors do you recommend ?And also a question about one colourplugin specifically : The DOA plugin : Does it represent the colour of the used DOA ? In other words, if I purchase 4 of these colours and throw 4 different DOA's, will it accurately show the sound differences of the DOA's ?
I have a Colour Palette as well as two CP5 preamps.Stuffed with 15IPS, Multi Stage Saturation and JFET distortion. On the preamps I have my own design of colour which basically is a HPF around 80Hz + EQ dip around 400Hz + subtle distorion from two cheap triad transformers driven by an opamp.
I guess you can A/B your DOAs with the DOA plugin since the rest of the audio path stays the same.
The palette is more of a fun tool to me, all distortion plugins sound quite similar in my ears...
