  1. This weekend - House: House Nation $4.99 for the commercially licensed option (or $2.99 for the non-commercial) https://producerplanet.com/us/article/house-nation-1978/?license=commercial_unlimited The Soundpool contains loops from 'House Vol. 10' of 'Soundpool DVD Collection 16'. The full Soundpool DVD Collection 16 can be found on eBay for $15 (+free shipping in the US), includes commercial use licenses, and it may be a better deal
  2. PA_EXT is described here https://www.plugin-alliance.com/en/news/article/items/pa-ext.html I don't see any iZotope products there and the exclusion is specifically PA_EXT (not "External"). FWIW, the F29 vouchers DO work with previously added iZotope products (e.g., RX9 Elements), so it may be a matter of waiting (or contacting support, as suggested) @Bapu no, I'm not talking about the more recent final offer. From what I can tell (based on emails) Soundwide was announced on 4/12/2022 and Forever 29 on 4/14/2022
  3. No, PA_EXT are sales with a limited time that don't become part of the permanent catalog. Forever 29 was actually released 2 days after they announced the Soundwide partnership and the first bundle of PA/NI/Izotope products. I was playing around with different products in my shopping cart, and the voucher works for some iZotope plugins but not others (e.g, it works for RX9 Elements but not for RX10 Elements)
  4. Plugin Alliance has added Rx10 and Ozone 10 to the store https://www.plugin-alliance.com/en/products.html Ozone 10 adv $299 (when not on sale, $499) Ozone 10 std $199 (when not on sale, $249) Ozone 10 elements not available RX 10 adv $799 (when not on sale, $1199) RX 10 std $299 (when not on sale, $399) RX 10 elem $99 (when not on sale, $199) <end of deal part, start of the rant part> I tried using a Forever 29 coupon and it didn't work, the error message is: From the conditions for Forever 29 in the PA website: For RX 10 maybe the "is not a plugin" logic applies but, now that izotope has removed standalone mode from Ozone 10 it shouldn't be applicable Before the addition of Rx and Ozone, the most expensive plugin was bx_console AMEK 9099 for $449, currently more expensive than O10 (or just $50 more if you look at the price when not on sale) so it wouldn't be that unreasonable to expect the voucher to work (other than because the $499 price tag for the AMEK 9099 feels more inflated than the Ozone prices). Besides "because it would be too good a deal", what reasoning would you expect for the exclusion?
  5. the first time I read it too quickly and it looked like "politicians can analyse, synthesize, and manipulate speech"...
  6. Back in the day, I got the E-MU Proteus Pack Complete Bundle for Cakewalk Dimension (also by Digital Sound Factory)
  7. For video editing with Davinci Resolve you DO want a GPU with plenty of memory HD: 4GB VRAM 4K: 8GB VRAM 6K-8K: 20GB VRAM https://motionarray.com/learn/davinci-resolve/davinci-resolve-system-requirements/ For smaller budgets some of the recent "enthusiast entry" level cards meet/surpass the requirements for 4k (e.g., RTX 3060), or a 2nd hand flagship card from an older generation (e.g., a Maxwell or Kepler Titan) is also a good choice, but trying to use a low cost card is probably not a good idea
  8. It looks to me like there is a rush to reduce unsold inventory of current generation cards before the RTX 40xx start coming out in October
  9. If you really feel like paying for it... you can always WUP it and Waves will happily charge you a price
  10. This weekend - Deep House: Touchdown Miami $4.99 for the commercially licensed option (or $2.99 for the non-commercial) https://producerplanet.com/us/article/touchdown-miami-1948/?license=commercial_unlimited
  11. So, for those of us not subscribed to anything yet, it sounds like the loyalty vouchers probably exclude the VR plugins, and if we're interested in those then we're better off getting a few Forever 29 coupons (if we're not planning on Mega B)
  12. Actually, sounds like something useful for people doing multichannel audio (in the sense of more than stereo, e.g., surround). Btw, one of the changes in Pro Tools' recent lineup reorg is that Pro Tools Studio ("middle tier") now supports multichannel projects. Previously only Pro Tools HD ("higher tier") supported them.
  13. This weekend - Score: Game of Tones $8.99 for the commercially licensed option (or $4.99 for the non-commercial) https://producerplanet.com/us/article/game-of-tones-4432/?license=commercial_unlimited Obviously inspired on Ramin Djawadi's music. I had already bought it some time ago. The main theme is fun to listen to, but it evokes GoT so strongly that I end up not using it in my projects because it doesn't fit. It is a useful library when looking for cinematic percussion loops.
  14. Hint for anybody who'd like to reach him: Look at the signature in any of his old posts. I did contact him that way. From his reply, I got the impression he really felt the need to take a break Let's give him time, continue to show appreciation every now and then, let him know we're not forgetting him, and hopefully soon he'll feel the itch to come back.
  15. it's good business, and if there aren't that many forever 29 subscribers, it can probably be written down as a marketing cost
  16. My guess is that keeping the forever29 plan active would prevent PA from reselling a few NI and iZotope plugins Imagine Rx Advanced for $30 (that one they may justify some exclusion with the "it's not a plugin" argument), or Kontakt for $30 (much harder to justify an exclusion)
  17. On sale for $15 now https://www.stagecraftsoftware.com/products/simplestems/?coupon=MadCheap Of course, spleeter is still free (same quality but without the UI conveniences) https://github.com/deezer/spleeter Interestingly, iZotope Music Rebalance (RX) and SpectralLayers Unmix also use spleeter models. There may be minor differences in the tweaks but it's essentially the same algorithm and it really comes down to which UI you prefer
  18. This weekend... The link seems to be broken! (points to Score - Blockbuster part II but it is unavailable)
  19. When I want to share a project or see what others have shared I use blend.io
  20. If you use SSL plugins you probably want to check out the free "SSL 360" plugin mixer application, that automatically arranges all the SSL UI windows into a single UI window https://www.solidstatelogic.com/support-page/downloads
  21. The Play 4 Life promotion is back in effect for the month of July. Details here https://www.rolandcloud.com/news/play-4-life-has-returned
  22. Did your M2 drive come with a heatsink? If not, you may want to add one Alternatively, if your motherboard supports pcie bifurcation and you have a free 16x pcie slot, you may want to consider a pcie to m2 adapter with a heatsink and fan, e.g. https://www.newegg.com/asus-model-hyper-m-2-x16-card-v2-pci-express-to-4-x-m-2/p/N82E16815293043 (although, for this card you probably want to install M2's in pairs, so that your x16 slot bifurcates to 2x8 or 4x4 with all lanes fully populated)
  23. Falcon Crossgrade from Avid Falcon AAX The Falcon for Pro Tools offer has ended as described in the following AVID article: https://avid.secure.force.com/pkb/articles/FAQ/UVI-Falcon-FAQ.
