All that is super fair and understandable.
I’m on the completely opposite end of the plugin spectrum from you. I’ve purchased just a handful of plugins and everything else is Reaper stock or some free stuff I’ve acquired (like the Vladg compressor and limiter and the Softube Saturation).
That Kush stuff is super helpful for me, a guy who has mostly non-special and non-sound-mangly plugins. I could see the Kush plugs being comparable to Soundtoys Decapitator, Slate VCC, Slate’s VMR, and some UAD EQs so it’s super understandable
My plug buys are all fairly utilitarian and have been few-ish so the Kush stuff really improved the quality of my tools. My purchases have been stuff like Valhalla Vintage Verb which is killer, Boz’s Sasquatch (which I just got recently when it was on sale - it’s awesome and saves me from having to put up an outside kick mic on punk/metal genres), Boz’s Panther, an amp sim for metal guitars, a multiband transient designer, that Waves SSL channel strip that was on sale recently, and the Kush subscription. I also got the Focusrite plugins free for having one of their interfaces.
I think that’s it! You see why the Kush stuff really injected some personality into my tools!
I’ve been interested in the Boz Hoser and +10db stuff. Any thoughts on those?
