Default Re: empirical labs AROUSOR

I can't think of a single session here in recent time that doesn't have Arousor in it.

Maybe the negativity around a relatively high full price and marketing focus on a period of free updates that might be interpreted as paid updates not being too far off put off potential customers ... either way, a much better deal at this price :)

Still too expensive at $149 for most ppl I guess, most other companies have massively dropped their prices. I would gladly buy it at $99 =)

Hogwash

There is a reason that great plugs cost money....because they are great sounding plugs

There is a reason 1176’s (hardware) cost real hard cash, there is a reason Neumann mics cost real hard cash.

They don’t really put those on sale do they?

Just because waves is the new dollar store doesn’t mean everyone else has to be

If it’s valuable to you, you will pay the money and if not you will use a CA-76

I think it is to do with economies of scale. Waves clearly can afford to sell the product low because they're most likely selling volumes of the product. The initial R&D has long been recouped and with a large portfolio relative overheads are low.

Smaller companies have smaller economies of scale and need higher retail prices.

The Arousor sounded good but didn't wow me. I'm not the biggest UAD fan but the UAD Distressor sounded slightly better to my ears over the rest. The Slate one lost a little of the bottom end as was slightly thin by comparison. Maybe the UAD just gave a little bottom end hype? Either way, all good options and sound pretty close.

I will throw another one out there that is still really pricey

Revoice Pro $549 new license

Once you use it for double tracked voices and harmonies you wont want to go back to Melodyne

Don’t see many of them on the used market so you?

When I saw the thread title, I thought this was an ad for some kind of Viagra alternative.
