I still dont fully understand the Waves upgrade plan; all I know is I have plugins that work great for me and they were very inexpensive. Last year as a result of info gotten here I bought Horizon for $153.. I have 20 other plugins from Waves on top of that. Looking at the upgrade path discussed here, I could get Abby Roads Collection for $153 which would give me 9 new plugins ,8 of which I would use. Is this the best way to look at Waves upgrades?
This has been the best way for me personally. Updating WUP just feels like I'm paying for something I already bought, Upgrading my bundle at least gives me a new plugin for that same money.

Their management & marketing is an absolute nightmare imho. It's bullsh*t like this, that makes me completely question wtf is going wrong at Waves.
They kind of went off the deep end last year. I've heard from people not connected to Waves that it's because their line of live products didn't sell as well as expected. Don't quote me in that, though.

I'm tempted to just get it at that price and see how it works out, its almost impossible to actually audition mics anymore -- especially if you have a specific setup, budget, or mic in mind.

People around here trust you Uncle, so I'll just ask you straight up what's your honest opinion on it? For the record I have a strong bass-heavy vocal from e2 to e4.
I will be posting audio examples soon. On vocals, you will not be able to distinguish it from the real U47. You can hear the differences more clearly on wide frequency material like acoustic guitars and drum overheads but even then I don't think you would say the NOS12 sounds any worse than the U47, just slightly more open.
Sold Uncle, I like to give my money to you anyway -- you're always very helpful around here and that goes a long way.

Soundtoys just lost a few bucks from me, lol. I was about to upgrade to Soundtoys 5 because I wanted Radiator and SieQ (might as well upgrade fully for the offer I had). But... for $9 Little Radiator is good enough.

I've learned my lesson about bundles anyway. They're harder to flip if I tire of them and I don't usually appreciate what I have. It's better to get one plugin at a time, knowing exactly what I want it for, after demoing.

Does anyone know if there are any further discounts available from retailers for this? JRRshop only lists the V 5.0-->6.0 upgrade. Anyone? Uncle E?
Please PM me and I'll get you the lowest price possible. They don't allow us to give automatic discounts anymore. When we were allowed to give automatic discounts, we always gave 20% off.

psuper says "you're always very helpful around here and that goes a long way."

Although I haven't purchased much from you, I have to agree with this sentiment.

Confused whether to choose Abbey Road Chambers or Plates. I already have Soundtoys Little Plate (and Valhalla Vintage Verb & Room), so I wonder if I should choose Chambers?

Came across this interesting article: https://www.abbeyroad.com/news/how-to-u ... music-2585

Based on the information in it, I feel Plates would be more suitable for my purpose.

I have the demo installed now and will experiment a bit, but any suggestions on this?
Make sure to pay attention to the CPU usage as you're demoing them. Both sound great but are also hogs.
Thank you, I indeed realized they are taking significant CPU, especially the Chambers. For all this time I was ignoring H-Reverb, but man, it sounds amazing. It has a lot of presets and is very flexible, too. I think I will forget the AR reverbs and get the H-Reverb. Light on CPU, sounds beautiful. I loved the build up feature when demoing it yesterday; can be used creatively. One last demo experiment tonight and I will be done with the selection. :)

Just a note to those reading...GForce...I would buy these again at this price if I had to. Absolute bargain. Some of the best synths I own. Get these...NOW! You won't be disappointed.
