I’m leaning towards getting this one… I do have Ozone’s EQ matching feature, but this one seems like it would be more precise with the low end, and people say that the presets are very helpful, (as opposed to just comparing it to a particular song.) Plus my bass monitoring is more of a “sanity check” than a precise environment at this point. So… yeah I think it could be quite useful.
URM-members can apply for soundtoys academic bundle for 100$ o.O
Go get it if you don’t have it yet. Its the total bundle. Just apply for academic and proof you’re a member by printscreen you reciet or something, and a pic of your pastport and boom. MEGA sale. Even worth it to subscribe to URM for a month
My big “get” was Overloud’s new Gem EQ84. It’s still on sale on their site and AudioDeluxe.
Besides sounding really good, what’s cool is that you can bypass the EQ section of the plugin by pushing the “EQL” button (on the lower right) and just use the Input to drive the audio signal for some color/saturation. The “Cue” buttons are a good feature too. They let you “solo” the current frequency you’re EQing.
Unfortunately, my “budget” was/is a LOT more restricted. Trust me, there are some items on my list I really want to pick up, the SoundToys upgrade being one of them. Regarding that, here’s the page Jelle is referring to. That’s an amazing price! You never know, can’t hurt to ask.
One of my favorite plugs is TDR Nova (the dynamic eq). I still think it’s amazing you can get it for free. However there’s also the Gentleman’s edition which has a couple of very useful extra features and costs about 60 euro’s normally. I (finally) bought it for 36 euro’s at Plugin Boutique. I’ve never seen it on sale before so if you’re interested…
While I was at it I also bought their Slick eq Gentleman’s edition for 18 euro’s. I use that as a subtle character eq.
Both eq’s have ‘smart’ options like match reference and de-resonate which I’d like to try out.
Again from Plugin Boutique I picked up W.A. productions “Ultimate MIDI Collection, featuring InstaChrod, InstaScale along with their new MIDIQ”
As a non keyboard player interested in playing interesting chords and melodies using a midi keyboard I’m hoping these are going to boost my creativity. It might well be one of those (sets of) plugins that I’ll never get round to, but then again it might become the secret to my success I liked the reviews and tutorials I found any way.
You just have to apply for academic version. Make a copy of you payment reciet or a printscreen that shows that your account is active.
At least thats what they are saying on the urm private producers club. They claim its legit. Since I applied yesterday night, I have to wait for next week to get a comfirmation since its hand checked. Max 3 business days. If they don’t approve my reciet, I’m just gonna ask what they need, cause it should count for URM members.
