On the side I googled for examples, but the hits don't include words
such as "natural", but instead adjectives like "fatter" etc., usually in
combination with product names, Cubase, Ableton etc.. Does anybody know
music that was recoded with this technique? A link or name would be nice.
Is it used by analog studios nowadays too?

I want to listen to some examples.
