    Plugin Alliance - ADA Flanger

    I am kinda hoping the subscription will fail and then they can drop the voucher charade and just sell all their plugs for $4! I own about 20 PA plugs or so, all purchased on sale. I have demoed quite a few of the range and even though some are pretty good. There is honestly nothing in their entire range that I would be prepared to part with $100 for. But there is a few I would shell out $4 fo... No wait! After the whole "keeping the lights on" thing, I've looked deep into my heart and am prepared to make it a full $4.99 a plug!😁

    And just to be clear, I wouldn't pay $149 for a hardware flanger, let alone a plugin flanger! If I need whooshing noises that bad, I'll just make them with my mouth...

    They have gone so far off the reservation that they might not even be on this planet anymore?

    Plugin Alliance - ADA Flanger

    The Analog Flanger That Rules Them All! With its rich and colorful tone, the reputable A/DA Flanger was one of the first commercially produced flanging effects to be released in the late ´70s. Since then, it’s become a benchmark for all the other flangers out there. Whether you are going for something extreme or more musical, this little box of flanging wonders easily delivers on every front. Crafted by the award-winning development team at Brainworx and bearing an official stamp of approval from the A/DA founder Dave Tarnowski himself, the plugin version is an exacting emulation of the original analog unit. This timeless piece of gear is available in all major native plugin formats. List Price: $149; or VIP price with personal emailed code: $99 ADDED TO THE NEW MEGA BUNDLE AT NO EXTRA COST! http://plugin-alliance.acemlnb.com/lt.php?s=004606f946b93ba357cedf5f97f9f1bb&i=360A396A6A3438

    Waves Introduce Bass Fingers!

    I was wondering that myself? I also have Shreddage Abyss which is 4.28GB and it can do everything Bass Fingers can, plus Abyss sounds better with fast playing as it has palm muting and staccato mode. Though the amp and effects in the Waves products are probably a little better. The 15GB left me pondering if perhaps not all of the library content is available to us in playback at the moment. Maybe there is an update looming that will unlock features, additional tones and bass models not currently available in this version? Otherwise it is a lot of drive space in comparison to competitors.

    Waves Introduce Bass Fingers!

    It has some pretty decent flexibility in tonality but as far as I can see there is no way to palm mute individual note positions. It can mute each individual string but it appears to do that as an open string mute only. Keyswitches can change how the string is played but nothing as yet has made a satisfying palm mute sound. If I've missed this glaring feature someone please school me up? I have also found that I need to change the legato mode and turn the rotary on the guitar towards 'release' for faster playing. If you already have Modo, this likely won't do anything for you. That being said, if Waves were to perhaps add some palm mutes and a staccato mode, it would put it higher up there in usability. But as it stands this plug has some nice thick bass sounds that I would rate as: usable enough for 20 bucks! 😎 Though the HD is definitely better than SD. I have found that in the SD version, the additional noises like fret buzz and string rattle, sound a bit over-pronounced and fake.
  10. Damn it, they got me. I was thinking that they probably hadn't added a whole bunch worth my time since version 8 and then made the mistake of actually informing myself... Stupid wanting stuff! Let the hard drive cluttering commence!!!

    Presonus have just started selling Cherry Audio in their store, perhaps they have pitched in with some modulation capabilities within Studio One?

    Is Cakewalk gaining users/popularity with Bandlab?

    Cakewalk has simple and easy stem bouncing options. Really any DAW that makes bouncing stems easy, is great for collabs because then it doesn't matter what DAW anyone is using. If you are talking sharing the entire project fx, automation and all? Well the argument could be made that with Cakewalk being free, that it is actually the easiest DAW to collab with because all the other people need to do is download it, watch a couple of hours of 'how to' vids and then they are ready to get going without reaching into their pockets.

    Are you telling people about CakeWalk by BandLab?

    I have suggested it to quite a few people. Especially those who use something like Ableton or FL Studio and are looking for a traditional DAW for certain procedures. But most of the time when I get to the part about it being free. Instead of excitement, they tend to pull a face and shrug. Then some weeks later when I speak to them again, it turns out that they ponied up dough for either Pro Tools, Cubase or Studio One and didn't even bother trying Cakewalk. I'm really not sure how you can beat free as a sales point? But I think it is likely that this DAW needs the similar tales, legends and mystique of the others, to make people want to check it out. Perhaps once some bedroom producers get big and start talking about it, then it will be an awfully easy sell.
  15. So there I was just this last week, testing MDistortion and deciding that I'm going to get it when it comes up on sale and now, well here we are!🤪
