Are there any plugins that you just can't live without from Waves?  I don't care about WUP because I don't participate, nor will I.  I have Scheps Omni Channel which I use from time to time but haven't bothered with the rest.  I hear the API 2500 is a great tool to tame amp sim fizz but haven't tried it.

My favorites are H-Delay, Linear phase multiband and Vocal rider.

VU Meter and Dorrough. My two go-to plugins for gain staging. 

I really like Abbey Road Chambers specially for drumkits, and Non Linear Summer gives a very nice final touch to a mix.

The rest of the stuff I have are useful, but not unique/irreplaceable

Unfortunately there are. Vocal Rider, Scheps 73, Scheps Parallel Particles are the ones that come to mind.

I can live without all my Waves plugins. 

And Slate, PSP, IK Multimedia .....

I can live without *EVERY SINGLE* plugin I own.

It would be a so very sad life though.

For reference, here is the "small print" for the "all plugins".

$29.99 pricing offer does not apply to the following individually sold plugins:

Abbey Road Studio 3

B360 Ambisonics Encoder

OVox Vocal ReSynthesis

TRACT System Calibration

Vocal Bender

Of course. The vocal ones, that I would really be interested in are not part of the sale. Lol.

Btw: is Wave Tune Live good to have for a quick n dirty auto-tune?

My go-to-s:

Vocal Rider,  R-Bass,  Scheps 73,  Scheps OmniChannel,  L2,  MV2.

I do have alternatives for all of these (except the omnichannel), but in general I find the Waves ones much easier/quicker to use.

What are your alternatives for Vocal Rider and Scheps 73?

And what is your alternative for R-Bass? :) AFAiK there are no alternatives for it. The ones considered as an alternative do sound too much different to me.

I've been thinking about getting the  Nashville headphones plugin and Torque for changing the pitch of drums and would love to get the insights of forum members who have used these plugins. I really don't have sound engineering/mixing or mastering skills and appreciate tips from knowledgeable/experienced folks.

Yes, there are other plugins that do similar tasks but the ones above are the easiest for me to quickly find the settings that I want without much effort

I like DynaRide of TBProAudio. It is very similar to Vocal Rider, but it has more options. It can also be used for riding bass, thus you do not need an extra BassRider!
