Doing this as a blind test first, because thats the sort of wanker I am at the moment.

Curves matched as close as possible with plugin doctor. A, B and C are constant throughout.

The HW is a boutique Polish builder who made a small run a while back. This came out of Snap Studios. All the good stuff, 3xCarnhill's, beefy external PSU, Elma switches etc.

I love HW but I basically only mix in the box. I suspect others here may be curious if they are missing out by not having THE SOUND OF ANALOG. Lets see if you can pick out that analog magic.

Happy to share the plugin doctor screenshot after the fact, I think in theory someone could use it to decode which is which.
