Re: Nomad Factory. I have several of the more "fashionable" tape sims from other developers -- and yet, to my surprise, I found I liked Nomad's Magnetic II best on a recent mix. I've also used their Echoes, on occasion, over the many other delays I have. A couple others, too, that I don't recall at the moment. (I have way too many plugins.)

While they don't seem to get as much hype/attention as other brands -- I find them underrated, a good value and a very pleasant surprise from time to time. And, as a bonus, I love launching their beautiful GUIs -- I try not to care, but I can't help myself.

Good point about it running on pi. Must be VERY light weight on resources to be able to do that. He must be talking about the company's work ethic... Which I can attest to as it's Monday night here now and still no code. :(
Oh sorry, there's nothing wrong with their work ethic, it's just a not-so-great system. We can order Tracktion full products through an automated system, it's only upgrades that we need to have Tracktion's distributor order manually for us.

How good is EastWest's November 60% off sale? Is that about as good as it gets? I know from other comments here they run sales pretty frequently. Specifically looking for Hollywood Orchestra Gold, though interested in solo instruments as well.
Most of their sales are 50% off and don't include the free Play 6.

Zynaptiq ever do BF sales - specifically for the Design Bundle? Cheers!
They often do. I don't think anything is currently scheduled.

@Uncle E: It seems that lately I´m quite a late decider regarding intro prices :party: ... are there any UVI plate licenses left at the intro price?
We actually did have a few and kept them on sale for a few days extra. Were you able to get it?

Does Toontrack historically have sales on Superior Drummer in November? Interested in the main program (SD3) not the packs.
They historically have and they always do killer Black Friday deals. They're really one of the companies to watch that week because they normally do different super cheap sales each day. With that said, I don't think Superior Drummer will be on sale.

Anyone else tempted by output sale, its showing £359 for upgrade to full bundle from Movement which I purchased cheap.
Yes, me, but I’m still not sure about it. Can please someone persuade me NOT to buy...
Allegedly, they don't pay their musicians. :singer:

Which ones of the Nomad products are considered best? I know, its not very fashionable at the moment, some really high quality plugins.
I own a couple of those, e.g. the delay.
Is British Channel bundle good?
Now all about -70 %.
Cosmos is always popular. 80's Spaces is popular, too, but Cosmos is the one I always see people buying, whether it's on sale or not.

Magnetic, Echoes, and Cosmos make up the Magnetics Bundle, currently on sale for $59:

MAGMA is a very good bread and butter.
I wouldnt say Magma was 'bread and butter' unless you ignore certain features . Effects can be chained within a routing matrix, it has a nice modulation system so you can get pretty wacky and it can load VSTs.

I would compare it to UA BYOME or BC Patcher.
However BYOME only has serial routing, and it cant load VSTs.
MC Patcher does not have a modulation system but can load VSTi as well as VST effects.

Or theres Magma's sibling P&M Chainer which like the others has no modulation system.

The Integral Pack used to sell for $99 at least once a year.

I had time to demo some of the recommendations. Magnetic II is really good, especially if you don't have any quality saturation/tape sim plugin, yet. Cosmos is good, but my brainworx subsynth does that work better.
Echoes I already own, I can recommend it to anyone, no matter how many echoes/delays you own. Its unique.
Lsd Garbage's some modules are absolutely fantastic, as well. Maybe the whole plugin structure is a bit outdated.

Where Nomad really shines, is the warm, analog-type modelling and personal sounding effects.
