I got on the Soundtoys email list awhile back with one of their free things, now I got the Decapitator offer: regularly $199, now $49. I would guess that’s a good deal but I really don’t know much about Soundtoys stuff except what I have heard and read (mostly good).
I see that they require an iLok, no problem as I already use one. Any other software install requirements? Some mfr’s now have these mandatory install and management programs which I detest, and I’d prefer to not take on another one. I’m not even sure I would use this plugin, but you know - it’s a G.A.S. thing. I generally have plenty of stuff already and try to avoid getting more, more, more. So the install and management piece is probably a determining factor for me - too much PITA and I’m out.
On a side note, their “supported hosts” doesn’t include Reaper. I have seen that quite a few places. I doubt there would be any issues, but with the popularity of Reaper going higher and higher IMO, it seems like an elitism or exclusivity (political) issue to exclude it (purposely or not).
