  1. Shawker, have you heard back from support regarding this problem? I also have a mix of Waves V9, V10, V11. I certainly don't want to update to V12 if it affects CbB projects created before the V12 update. Thanks, for letting us know!
  2. Thank you for reminding us about the Steinberg "Generic Low Latency ASIO driver". I avoided installing it when demo'ing Cubase back in 2017. I noticed it recently appeared in my CbB device preferences. Fortunately, it wasn't being used. But, why and how was it installed? Apparently when I decided to try Dorico (Steinberg's notation software), that sneaky driver was installed. The uninstaller got rid of it (located under the Windows Program and Features window).
  3. Is this release an update for the UAD-2 VST plugin too? Or, is it only an new update/extension for LUNA?
  4. I found this reference to Nectar 3 Plus on the Izotope web site. The first topic says Nectar 3 Plus is a "forthcoming" update (with RX8 breath control). The second topic is a bit confusing to me because it's not what I'm seeing on my Product Portal.
  5. I found two interesting pieces of information on the Izotope web site: 1.) In the Ozone 9 documentation, under the heading Plug-in Module, it says, "... Add the Plug-in module to choose an iZotope plug-in to add to your signal chain." This seems to imply the 'Plugin Module' is used primarily to allow other Izotope VSTs to be used with the Ozone 9 standalone application. 2.) However, it appears some third party VSTs will work with the Ozone plugin module too. See this article on the Izotope web site Third Party Compatibility in Ozone . It says Waves is not supported in the Ozone standalone application. It also says some VSTs won't work properly. I don't know if this information is current. I may have misinterpreted the information. However, this information would explain the various results we are seeing with Ozone's plugin module. I suppose someone could contact Izotope to clarify. In my case, none of my VST3 plugins were found when scanning, but I don't have many VST3s. Not all of my VST2 plugins are found. I usually use Ozone 9 as a plugin inside a DAW, and not as a standalone app.
  6. Zo, I will try some other VST3 plugins later today. I'm wondering whether anyone else was successful with loading VST3 plugins.
  7. I did a quick experiment using external plugins with Ozone 9 Advanced as a stand-alone application. Like others observed, scanning would not load the Waves plugins. The scan found my UAD plugins. The UAD plugins are VST2; Waves are VST 3. Is there a problem with Ozone using external VST3 plugins? I had my paths set to the proper VST2 and VST3 plugin locations. Another observation: I used two UAD external plugins in the Ozone project. The real-time graphics (e.g. meters) on the two UAD plugins were sluggish. There weren't any audio problems with two external plugins.
  8. Yes, same error for me. I have been trying to get to JRR Shop since yesterday afternoon (PDT) with no luck.
  9. I'm thinking the same. It was $149 for the Version 4 upgrade. I found a receipt for V4 at 50% off, but that was during a Black Friday sale. Kind of a long wait!

    UAD Half Year Sale!

    Any thoughts on the API 2500 bus compressor plugin? I've been demo'ing it, and used it on a "rock" drum bus with good results. Seems like it would work well in other contexts too. I like the added controls for: parallel mix, compression curves, etc. I have the UA1176 plugin collection and trying to determine if those cover similar ground (without the extra controls found on the 2500).

    UAD Half Year Sale!

    @garybrun Some of your UA compressors could be updated to the latest (non-legacy) versions. If I'm reading your list correctly, the Fairchild and 1176s are the "legacy" versions. UA's "Analog Classics Pro Bundle" has the latest versions those compressors. The bundle includes other plugins which you already have the latest versions. However, UA usually discounts packages based on what you already own. There are also separate 'Fairchild' and '1176 Collections'. I remember getting a discount on those collections because I owned the "legacy" versions. But, that was a few years ago. The non-legacy Fairchild 670 plugin has two very useful features: 1.) Mix control for parallel compression; 2.) Adjustable Side-chain Filter which adjusts how the low-end triggers the compression. Then again, you could wait for the usual end-of-year sale!

    UAD Half Year Sale!

    Thanks for the information @Craig Fowler and @LasWaltz. I'm currently demo'ing two UAD plugins, and will purchase the first one separately in hopes of an additional coupon.

    UAD Half Year Sale!

    During past sales, UAD has sometimes added another discount voucher to my account after a plugin has been purchased. Has anyone seen this happen during the current sale? I've also seen UAD add vouchers after a sale is over -- which is not as enticing!

    Waves 25% Off WUP

    I WUP'd some plugins a year ago when Waves offered a 25% discount. I don't remember seeing any other WUP deals since then. Perhaps someone can confirm whether there have been additional WUP discounts over the past year. In cclarry's original post, it seems like one of the retailers may be able to offer a modest additional discount. Not sure what the process is for this. Perhaps clicking on the link in the original post explains the process.

    Superior Drummer 2

    Slight topic drift ... have any of you tried the SD3 "Decades" SDX expansion pack by Al Schmitt ?
