First of all, let me say i'm no expert at all and i make a setting on the fly. When it sounds right, i'm ok with it even when it's not following "the rules of soundprocessing", if something like that is even a thing...
I'm tweaking Stereotool for years now and although i'm very happy with the overall sound i seem to never really control the loud S en T sounds. They're really sticking out of the sound which personally i find really annoying.
So, i tried almost everything to control that sounds but than there's always "something else missing" and i still cannot really control the S sounds, even on high quality recordings. Tried other settings and other user settings but nothing really suits my wishes. More bands, less bands, only one multiband, two multiband, no clipper, no declipper, no natural dynamics, no AGC which i'm still not using by the way, but any combination of filters and settings results in the damn uncontrollable sss. Don't get me wrong, surely i'm not competent enough to get it right due to lack of knowledge.
Untill i tried very little multiband drive and a lot of density. BAM! what a sound! It's very loud, but still very clean and high detailed. And best of all, the loud S and T are finally under control. I can feed anything into Stereotool, CD's, vinyl records, Spotify music and even MP3's sounds amazingly good!
Offcourse it's dumb luck that this combination of setting works for me and i'm okay with that.
But, i wanted to know if i could push it even further, by increasing the density. I think that i can get an even more powerfull, in your face sound while still sounding relative "easy" and clean.
So that's it, i'd just like to try an get a competitive sound with Stereotool and compare it with FM stations. Just for hobby purpose and comparing with the expensive hardware boxes on the air.
