    I really like Ansco 130. It comes up warm in all the papers I've tried, and the tonality is excellent. Another plus is that the stuff lasts dang near forever!

    I thought it was the ansco 120 that was soft. The ansco 130 is definitely not as soft as 120 on Ilford Ilfobrom Galerie Grade 4 when I print.

    I use selectol soft too. But, I only use them for sabbatier, so I can't comment on what to use to just get a soft effect. There is a developer called Solarol as well, but I haven't tried it.

    Good luck,

    William

    Hope you dont mind a "me too", but I like 130 as well. There is an Ansel Adams version that is a little warmer that is nice.

    If you don't want to mix your own, Edwal has a nice developer, "Edwal Platinum II Black and White Paper Developer". (http://www.adorama.com/CHEP32.html) and Zonal Pro, "Zonal Pro HQ Warmtone Black & White Paper" works as well.

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.

    Ethol LPD 1+12

    I loved it with Paterson Agugrade WT (RC)
    It did a great job with Ilford MGWT, specially after selenium

    ansco 130 is usually used as a neutral to cold developer;; however, as the dilution rate increases it gets warmer. the same holds true for the Super platinum. With all the tests we have done with it at 1:15 it is warmer than the traditional warm tone developers with warm tone papers.

    There are a lot of warmtone papers available ;bergger and forte both make wonderful papers. Can't say that this option would be my favorite , but if you want warm then any of the above developers with these papers work very well.

    I haven't tried 130 due to the difficulty of obtaining (and paying for) glycin, but Agfa Neutol WA already mentioned by someone else is good, fast for a warm developer compared to some formulas, and lasts very well in use.

    The Zonal Pro HQ warmtone and Forte Warmtone paper is very good.
