I like Softube plugins. I have a bunch. Good plugins for sure but their prices are on another level

I'll wait till the price gets reasonable or else get something from the rival manufacturers.

I got the Weiss limiter in the bundle. Nice enough but not the gigantic leap forward I had in my mind. Good sound, different to the other limiters I have. I'm sure it will get some use but I haven't kept it on a master yet.

Agree about the Weiss limiter.

I don’t own a car, but I feel that the Weiss DS1-MK3 is “a gigantic leap forward” and worth every bit of (normally USD 549 – now USD 399) –
without the 3 extra plug-ins!

Easily gets my vote for “Best Deal – Black Friday 2020” - “A line-by-line code port of the original digital hardware—not an emulation”.

Bit like Spectrasonics: hurts to join the party, but the budgetary pain is bound to fade when the joy kicks in.

Please don't get me wrong: I'd love it to be $29.99!

I'm afraid Plugin Alliance are another company that offer worse deals around Black Friday

This plugin for example I paid $29.99 (plus $6.00 tax in the UK) back in February of this year.

Brings back memories:

“Set out to buy a spring
They said they only sold to the trade
And the minimum order was 40 Dollar
How would I like’em wrapped?”

Luckily enough one option was the Royal Compressor I was thinking of buying recently

Interesting the Royal Compressor should become a freebie shortly before the release of the RS124 from Waves? Maybe just a coincidence.

Got that email from Waves and I go 'yeah - I want this as I have the rest of the Abbey Road series but then remembered it's V12 and I don't have a Metal video card.

Oh I’ve seen that Royal Compressor around, no idea how good it is or who makes it though.

On the other hand, RS124...man. I mean it’s not hugely flexible, but it makes for a great color box.

Actually, it kind of reminds me of the Acme XLA unit to that end. It actually has an option where you can bypass the gain reduction circuit so you can just use it for saturation. I haven’t tried it much in that capacity, but it did seem to work well on giving body and energy to vocals. I’m sure the RS124 will be just as awesome in that context, amount others.

The Royal Compressor is well worth a try, especially if you can snag it for free.

There's a cut down free version too which I tried and liked quite a lot, hence I was in the market.

It's quite different to the Waves RS124 but it certainly has a lot of character.

I thought the Front DAW freebie was good so I have tried out one or two of the products.
