I'll quote myself from this post.

For anyone in doubt btw, this really is an excellent compressor and deserves a demo (even if you didn't gel with the freebie), and it's well worth a multiple of its current upgrade price.


Short answer: Yes (al IMHO and YMMV and all of that ;))

At $24.50, why not? I just got it and I'm going to check it out when I get home...

Yes! It's an aggressive yet flexible compressor. I enjoy it most on drums: kicks, snares, and even drum busses. I paid full price for the upgrade when it was first released and still feel I got a great deal. It's a no-brainer at $25.

How often does NI do these 50% discounts? I'm trying to not buy any plugins for like a year or something, but if this deal wont come around again around that time, I should probably jump on it now.

At least two time a year (the other in December). If you're patient, with NI, there almost always will be another sale.

Yeah that's what I figured, waves seems the same. Atleast once a year there's a slamming deal.

Here's the thing. Between the saturation and the character and those controls, the attack and release...it's worth 25 bucks easy. The other thing was printing/freezing in supercharger wasn't as smooth (I'm guess because of the fixed attack/release) and there were problems with the beginning of a printed clip, but GT seems much better and you can still slam if you'd like.

It's worth a demo. Unless you are just TIGHT financially, it's not like you'll do better than 24.50.

Yeah I know that, I'll probably pick it up at some point, I was just wondering if this 50% off deal will come around again at some point, or if I should get it now.

Seems to be about every 6 months. I could be wrong about that.

Gah I caved anyways... Dont regret it tho, haha.

It's fun seeing how it's a unique design, but that the Slam, Punch, and Gentle modes really resemble the classic FET, VCA, and OPTO modes :P

I ordered Supercharger GT hours ago and still haven't received anything. I sent a support e-mail so hopefully that gets me somewhere.
