    So, can I eat brown sugar or not?

    That's the  "safer" sugar for a diabetic unless you want the chemical stuff.  Maybe they need to relabel it in grocery stores.

    Note to anyone having trouble getting Instachord to do anything: you must select a "strum pattern" before it will make a sound. In its init state, you can bang on the keyboard all day long and get nothing.

    Even then, though, it's a solution in search of a problem at my house. My DAW has a very nice built-in arpeggiator.

    I don't need any plugin to do that.

  3. I'm gonna have 16 or 17 unused unless they add something to the $49 bracket.  Too bad when I click on promotions that is doesn't say "dude you don't have this!"  One of these days I'm gonna had to do an all IK project. Imagine what someone whose starting would get for a $49 investment.

    I don't have any issues with installation/authorization of Waves plugins. Plug and play here. Some of them are very, very nice!

    But I completely disagree with their 1 license limit, as well as their use of plugin shells. Those really s*ck!

    That's why my WUP is over $500..  I bought multiple licenses. I have desktops so moving dongles around are annoying and easier to forget.   That's a reason why I never jump on the Steinberg bandwagon.

    Sometimes I wonder, if digital would have been invented first and now we where just starting to get analog gear. Would people complain that analog is not as crisp as digital? That it introduces distortion that we didn't have before and therefore not as clean as we are used to?

    Is the human such a creature of habit and nostalgia that whatever it has been accustomed to for years is always better?

    Hum, I wonder... 🤔

     Same here.

    isn't nostalgia wonderful  -  I seem to remember that we were desperate to get recordings that DIDN'T sound like they were recorded on a Porta-One.

    Even the 3340/3440 weren't exactly amazing - aimed at the budget end of the market .........



    More like overrated.  How many kids who listen to music on their phones are gonna say, "oh man this thing is so much better with tape emulation".  "This woulda been a hit if it had tape emulation".

    I still hope that one day they (Waves) dispose of their cumbersome shell (seems not in v13)! As long as they keep their plugins shellized I will stay Waves free (the handfull plugins that I have are almost never used)!

    They have so many plugins I guess that works for them.

    Best buy was the two entries ($49 & $99) I made that allowed me to finally own everything except the 4 X-Gear Software Pedals.

     Same here except I got the $49 ST libraries.   I have everything except those pedals and the Mellotron.  When I go through my available $49 promos half of the stuff I have no clue what they are until I load AT5.

    They have been available in Custom Shop since September 9th and have not been taken off at any time since then.  They were also added to the group buy for people who bought in at 149.99 or higher.  Anybody who experiences something different than those conditions can consult IK Support as that is atypical.

    No big deal to me.  With AT5 Max I'm overwhelmed with what I have. I haven't even touched the surface of Total Studio.

    No idea, never used Nectar 3. But with a "Plus" it must add something, right? 😉

    I'm sure there must be some info on the product page.

    So far that's the mystery.  Unless I'm missing something there is no product comparison.

    Nectar 3 Plus and Neutron 3 Advanced here. Not on subscription, just iZotope Music Production Suite 4.

    How is Nectar 3 different from plus? I can upgrade it for $49 but no real reason to.

    That must have been short lived, I'm in 3 different tiers and when they released the new options I checked sometime that first day starting at the lowest tier and worked my way up to see which tier I could potentially get them on.  Wasn't until I got up to the $200 tier that my account saw them as available.

    I agree $150 is quite steep for an effect plugin that is locked inside an echosystem (and an echosystem where the host is rather resource heavy.  But they also have T-Racks units I'd say the same about $100+ for a plugin outside of group buy territory is basically madness in this market.  But having them in the group buy makes it more palitable.  Wish they were in the $80 tier and I'd grab all 4 of them.

    Got Vibe and Reverb, have to decide if I think Time is worth if for one of the very few remaining selections I have at the $200 tier.  Because with the other Delays I have (think MTurboDelay, Audority Echorec, Boz Imperial, Obliq Delay, Unfiltered Audio etc) the only thing I'd be getting out of it is really the ability to put it in the effects loop within AT5.  

    It was.  I wondered what they were.  When an email came out about these software pedals they weren't in there.  They were not in the Custom shop either when they were in the promotions.

  13. Even though I only put $49 in the GB on Wed. those X gear peddles were in my free choices.  I was going to get them yesterday but they were removed. Those software versions are $149. IK giveth and taketh away.   I really don't see anyone paying that kind of price for a software peddle.  So I'm slightly pissed and waiting for the last minute is not a good idea.
