The historic EMI/Abbey Road sound from the late 60s realized by Chandler Limited®’s hardware and reimagined for a modern studio context
This collection includes four plug-ins: Zener-Bender, Zener Limiter, Curve Bender and Zener-Bender for Console 1
Units used on modern classic records by Beyoncé, The White Stripes, and Lady Gaga
PLUG-IN COLLECTION / CHANNEL STRIP
Chandler Limited® Zener-Bender
€549



A powerful and musical modern plug-in channel strip with the unique vintage sound of Chandler Limited®, the Zener-Bender combines the crisp and colorful character of the Curve Bender Mastering Equalizer with the big, punchy Zener Limiter to bring class, history, and most crucially of all, a phenomenal sonic impact. Component-modeled with Softube’s customary care and experience, these units together can take charge of any mix.

To be fair you get four plugins "This collection includes four plug-ins: Zener-Bender, Zener Limiter, Curve Bender and Zener-Bender for Console 1".

However, Softube are pretty expensive. Someone must be buying their stuff but it generally isn't me.

Agree they are good stuff but I know that Softube are strugglinc abit part due ro corona delivery of the fader units and due to bad hardware sales of the fader units. The fader units are soooo Fugly its hard to take it seriously.

We have the console 1 mk2 and thats ugly as hell too and now another grey box with plastic WHITE faders that makes it look home made ...

I mean even the demo looks sheeet! The middle screws on Console and Fader units dont even line up! I mean WTF were they thinking 🤔

I like my Softube plugins but don't think I ever payed 'Full Price' for any of them. I got in to their 'Eco System' with a couple of freebies -or bundled software?- once you're in you're likely to be eligible for 'loyalty discounts' at some point.

Same thing with SoundToys and PIA/BrainWorx.

Generally it's good strategy to just hold off and wait for some sort of sale. I always remind myself; "I like this, I want this, but I don't really need it. I'll wait."

Love them or hate them, Waves started a price war several years ago which has been beneficial to every plugin buyer. Plugins used to cost hundreds back in the TDM and even RTAS days. These days quality plugins start at around $29 because of what Waves did. Now I don't think Waves intention was to kill off the competition. It was just they saw the way the market was going i.e. an exponential growth of supply and demand and the price had to drop accordingly.

On the plus side, many people who previously used cracks decided that they could afford to buy the real thing, swelling demand even further. Additionally, the ranks of hobbyist and semi pro users came with their $$$ to the party. I was pretty shocked to see that Dirk from Plugin Alliance stated over 1 million voucher codes went out the other month! No wonder he decided to open the flood gates and allow sharing of the codes in the FaceBook group. Of course not all codes are used but do the maths, that's a tidy some of revenue for a company which is clearly growing from strength to strength.

Softube would do well to consider their prices. They have some great plugins but I rarely buy them due to cost as do many others. Slate are in a similar position on purchase cost but different due to Slate's hard sell on subscriptions. Call me old school but I am not paying for the same product over and over. This is not Netflix Mr. Slate. I do not watch the same film over and over but I do user the same products week in, week out. Also, I don't want all the products! I generally demo everything before purchase and as much as love Plugin Alliance, some of the products are not for me. I'm sure the same would go fro pretty much every other manufacturer.

So Mr. is right. Wait for the right price. It's a buyer's market.

Stephen

Be very aware with this one. If you've purchased from Plugin Alliance you should have gotten an email with a code to use for a cheaper price. And that price while cheaper is still extravagant. However login to your PA account and go to the product page where you may find that you're eligible for a lesser price. For instance I could by this for $149 US. Generally when you see something like this it's because you already own another PA plugin that a qualifier. You should be able to find that if you look at the 'manage my registered plugins' page.

For me it shows because I own the Focusrite channel strip from them I'm eligible for the J at $179US. I don't know why the product page says $149 but if I were to buy it I'll take it (I do own like 67 PA plugins already). Don't know if I will purchase it yet as money has gotten tight right now with this covid-19 junque. But that's another thing altogether.

Maybe even UAD are starting to get the message.

50% off all plugins for a month is unprecedented?
