If your into API....
 
Plugin Alliance has now delivered the Lindell 50 channel strip. Three diff API EQ's and two different compressors, a gate/exp that works and great "gain" tone if you want.

I love it. If you want a great API strip check it out.

I don't think there's a physical NAMM this year but I get what you're saying. Sadly Dirk aka Plugin Alliance once again shows how tone-deaf he is with his pricing in this covid 19 era. $349 if you don't qualify for a discount - just like that $400 Amek eq. They're trying to force people to subscribe :(

Damn it’s Lindell. No AAX DSP. 😡

If it’s ”Lindell” I go the other way. The HW is cheap crap too and sound nowhere close to API

I don't know about his gear but from my experience of owning and using API gear daily I can say this plug is not crap.

To Jack's point, expensive yes (although I paid a lot less).

Let me guess - $180 plus a voucher right?

Very close sir! Off by $1 ($179). Which honestly would be the expected regular price before a discount. I also find Softube has rather high prices. I've stopped using their plugs (for several reasons).

I don't like the subscription push either. I got into PA a long while back so they give me decent discounts but even $179 isn't chump change.

Anyway- I'd rather own than subscribe. I stopped paying Adobe for Photoshop recently and will continue to get rid of other subscriptions.

I'm very much into API, but this is not API, it's Lindell. I'll have to pass.

Re: If your into API....
 
I'm curious - why the dump on Lindell? Don't know much about him so that's why I'm asking.
