Sorry, should have put a smiley behind my post to make it more obvious that I was just kidding. :D

I totally agree with your points. That's also the reason for the many, many influencers on Youtube, and elsewhere.

I mean, nothing wrong with asking what people think, but, making up your own mind is the least that I expect.
Plugins and a DAW. On a operating system. Which runs on a computer.

I'm genuinely not trying to be a prick, I honestly cannot understand how such a question can in any way be useful to individual circumstances.

What car should I buy? Well how many kids do you have? Do you have a dog? Do you want electric? Just go to the fkn dealer and drive some.

Yep. :tu:

My worst buying decisions for audio plugins were based on what gets hyped around here... seriously, I ended up selling those plugins short after, because I just couldn't stand them. That taught me to demo thoroughly, and to hear on my own voice. Anything else just won't make you happy.

It serves a purpose. I'm downvoting every numpty who asks what we think of a plugin or which one they should buy.
Asking what plugin to buy is frankly idiotic when there are demos available. Just because a few of us like the Shadowhills comp it doesn't mean you will also. Besides how do we know your needs and preferences, what you already have etc.

Also, just for transparency the downvote on your recent post here wasn't me.
:pff:


And as I just have received 2 PA vouchers for any plugin for $29 I was going to ask you 'bout this...


should I go Red or Green... ?

:hihi:

Actually seriously... I demoed the green one so can't do an A/B test.. I will ofc demo the red...

BUT knowing you like your drums, which do you have and does it work for YOU... I have heard your music...

I want just to smash my modular drums...

Numpty numpty question... :wink:

:lol:

edit... I am a compressor junkie.. prob have too many... but nostalgia for hardware emulations... you know!!!!

Same here, I tend to avoid things that get touted as "game changers" or "no-brainers".
Signatures are so early 2000s.

While upvoting seems to be a ok implementation (not sure if needed, but it doesn't hurt), I don't see much good in the downvoting, as it could be abused by trolls.
It serves a purpose. I'm downvoting every numpty who asks what we think of a plugin or which one they should buy.
In case you’re short of numpty material to vote down...
