IK 25th Anniversary Group Buy!

Recommended Posts

so.. we are at 16.. and I have 3 more things to get before i have pretty much all of T-Racks. If this gets to 20 or 21.. it's going to be a  toss between, getting the Arc 3 software and then picking up a separate compatible MEMS mic on BF. Or digging into the Sampletank stuff and either getting some of the newer stuff like alternate keys, clavitube ,shipwerk piano, fractured piano..

 

any thoughts, comments or suggestions?

I have very little experience with IK (like a grand total of two weeks or so), but I've REALLY been digging the Shipwreck piano!

Well that is it for me. I have ridden all the rides in the amusement park, some more than once. I'll will stick around to see how this thing turns out. Oh, the drama! Oh the suspense. Besides, I need to see if I get kicked off the island when this thing reaches 19.

i'm leaning myself to get the ARC 3 software and get a MEMS mic like you suggested for the holidays.  As far as Sampletank Stuff goes I like the Alan Parson Grand myself.

At the rate this is going I could buy in at a really cheap level of $49.99 for and pretty much have it all.  🤔

At least I was able to make a fourth buy in before the end... 60 free plug-ins to sooth my soul.  Is.... Is that the B-3X I hear calling me?  I'm coming!

I haven't read all of the 100+ pages here, so sorry if this has been said.  Check in your Account Crossgrades/Upgrades for qualifying products. I just saw "AmpliTube SVX 2 Upgrade" for $49 - and with Jam Points that's $35!  This would qualify for the $99 level, I believe!

The upgrade SKU is $49.99 so that would be the tier.  Just buy the full version from GC for $49.99 to qualify for the $99.99 tier.

Yeah I went to my Crossgrade page and there is nothing there that would entice me to join this GB.

I picked up ARC3 in the GB, I used my calibration mic with cal file with it to balance my studio. I have been using it for a few weeks now and its a keeper! A lot less bass, but I hear much more of the rest of the mix. And it's easily defeatable if I want to hear my mix in a bass heavy environment. Probably the best way to cope with a lot less than perfect bedroom studio. At least the mix I have done with it were easier to do and sounded better.

Has anyone used an Apex220 calibration mic with ARC 3? Got the software in the GB and I noticed a nearby music shop rents them for a few dollars a week. Was wondering if it would do the job.

I'm sure you know this but just as a reminder: ARC3 is for listening/mixing, not for export of mixes. Disable ARC3 before exporting unless you setup a listening bus that is not included in your export/mixdown process.

Did you just intuitively know that, or did you learn the hard way?
