Default Cheapest way to get a copy of Digidesign Smack!?

Hey All

Have been demo'ing Digidesigns Smack! plugin and I know there are lovers and haters of it but I flippin love it... without getting into the love / hate debate can someone tell me the cheapest way to buy it? I know you can get it in the music production pack for a good deal or by itself for not much less but I don't generally have $400 on hand to get it? Can you buy plugins second hand?

And good work Digidesign, love it.

Check Ebay. Some folks get the MPT just for the increased track count and try to sell their license of Smack or other plug-ins.

Try to find it on Ebay. Hell a lot cheaper. You can't re-register Digi's plugins though, but I don't care as long as Digi gives us plugin updates for free (I don't talk about AIR plugins, of course.). I'm looking for cheap Digi Translator these days. I'll find it, no doubt about that.

So I can just buy a iLok Smack! licence off ebay and use it to unlock the demo version? Is that legal since I haven't actually bought the software as such?

When you buy the license you buy the plugin. This is absolutely legal.

Don't know where you are coming from, but there is a few of them on Ebay at the moment (at least in Germany, so you might look for worldwide offers).

The ebay seller will have the iLok license deposited in to your account normally there is a $25 transfer fee, smack is dirt cheap on ebay, normally around $50 or less.

Hi... I find Smack to be one of the most useful compressors if you're working in a hurry and don't have the time to fiddle around getting another (better?) compressor to sit just right - it's quick and dirty...

I paid $18 +$25 iLok transfer fee for mine, so be prepared to search around and wait for a day or two if necessary. Also, make sure you have a full international search in operation on eBay - you'll get loads more results...

I buy virtually all my plugins from eBay and have never had a problem yet.

Good luck,

Jeremy.

I found Smack! on my PTLE installation disk today, while looking for something else. I installed it and it showed up in Library>Application Support>etc., but I can't access it from the Edit window. (Ditto Maxim.)

Anyone suggest why, please?

Digi Install disks come with various amounts of items to be installed... BUT.. installing them does not equate to you owning them.
You get different plugs/items depending on the bundle you bought.
This is what i was told, when installing my 003 LE bundle. I just thought , its on the disk, so this stuff is mine. Turns out it was TDM stuff.
Kinda makes sense, as they do not know what they are going to offer on up the road.
Of course this may not be the case with yourself. It could simply be an authorization issue.
