hey guys, I made a good comparison post. Brainworx were kind enough to officially announce my comparison post and my review on their FB. You can listen to the files here: https://www.gearslutz.com/board/gear-sh ... st13414849

I'm very happy with the update 8)

That $50 is probably going to SSL for the branding... although the changes they've made with the help of SSL, I'd say its worth it.

I'm super impressed with these... I've had them on test for a month or so now and absolutely love them. The EQ and Dynamics are spot on, but what really impresses me is the TMT channel modelling. I've got Slate VCC and have demo'd Waves NLS but neither of them I like nearly as much as this... summing audio through multiple random channels really adds something special and incredible width to your mixes.

I wonder if I am missing something here.

I also tried it out and:

- the new "all" controls for vgain and saturation are really, really, useful.
- The compressor does sound even better, which is exciting
- For me at least the GUI is a little more responsive

If you bought this within the last year I figure you're going to get a at least a $25 voucher for July, mine is $50 which makes this free.

Shrug?

Good point. Have the July vouchers come out yet? They're usually out by now. Don't recall getting one yet.

Found it!

We can use the voucher to buy these upgrades ($50 each), right? I plan on getting both upgrades, hope to be able to use the voucher.

Unfortunately you can't stack the bundle discount with it and PA have fixed their bx_tuner discount loophole. Last order I stacked 7 of them to bring the price down an extra $40. Oh well. Not too anxious to pull the trigger now.
