Re: Plugin Alliance have gone subscription

At least PA hasn't gone the Adobe route of subscription only (yet). You can still get permanent licenses. The 'heavy hitter' prices now are not only higher than they were before but they're also...

Re: Plugin Alliance insanity

To begin with I did not start the thread over at GS.

And like a number of people you still don't get what the problem is. It's not about the vouchers and it's not so much about the subscription...

Re: How many Pro Tools 10 users in 2019?

You'll definitely be taking a step backwards going from PT12 to PT10. Functionality for one. If you really need a useful control surface you should look into something current.

Re: Plugin Alliance insanity

Thanks for this bit of news - I haven't been on FB for a couple of years for certain reasons not germane here so I'm at the mercy of those who do inhabit it.

Re: NVMe upgrade for Mac Pro 4.1/5.1 Mojave

All these upgrades has me wondering - can the power supply handle the load? I don't know how much Apple overdesigns their supplies. For that matter how about cooling? I don't have a machine room to...

Re: Plugin Alliance insanity

It's not so much the price of the subscription that's the issue here. Those 6 new plugins are priced so that PA is pushing people towards subscriptions and not buying individual plugins and owning...

Re: Plugin Alliance insanity

Same here. I'm waiting to see what the price will be on the B15 in August and that'll be the last I buy from them. Been a purchaser of their stuff for a couple of years now and while there's some...

Re: Plugin Alliance insanity

After a very short (less than 2 hours) demo I grabbed the V4B Ampeg amp. Have to say they pretty much nailed the sound and I love the ability to change the speaker cabs.


And it further gets me...

A plugin eq for over $1000? If you don't mind saying so - who was it?

I'm fortunate that I have most of what I want from PA. Would have liked the Shadow Hills Mastering Compressor but not at the...

Re: Plugin Alliance insanity

I think Dirk has shot himself and PA in the foot with this deal. Best deal ever? Hell no. Wish I could afford to buy hardware. Also wish I had the space to accomodate it. As it is now got a couple of...

Re: Plugin Alliance insanity

At least we still can get permanent licenses - but for how long?

He may well have. Dirk surely misjudged his customers. Didn't he do his real research and not just talk to companies but to the...

Re: Plugin Alliance insanity

For those that have spent hundreds/thousands with PA this subscription deal sucks. You get zero credit for anything you now own outright. Supposedly according to emails that PA sent out the discounts...

Re: Purchasing a NEW 27‑inch iMac with Retina 5K display.

Not so much the monitor but the video card. The screen itself doesn't really generate all that much heat (if any). Most of the heat in these beasts is the video card and cpu.

That hybrid (what Apple calls a Fusion drive) is the problem - remember that it's part spinner and those are what generates the heat. Put a pure ssd in there and the heat generated by the spinner is...
