"Venom"? It makes it seem like something marketed towards edgy teenage boys rather than a serious sound design tool.
Not a fan of the name neither, but at the end who really cares. It still sounds amazingly smooth and beautiful :P
Very true; my comment was just a silly personal bias on my part and shouldn't be taken seriously.

Is this the first acquisition that W.A Production has made or have there been more?

The new plugin-in version works fine, the only big problem I see is that all my presets stored in SPEXX are of course gone now and that all instances of SPEXX used in former projects will not be replaced by automatically with Venom and the plug-in settings within these projects are lost, that's a big bummer...

So I copied over the.au-presets I made with SPEXX into the mew Venom user folder for au-presets (located in User Library/Audio/Presets/W.A.Production) but Venom can't read the old presets so...arggghhhh

So I'll just copy over the parameters manually from Spexx presets to new Venom presets, as long as Spexx still works that seems the only solution.

I took a chance on it (for 11 dollars and some change), and I am blown away by its potential for sound design. It's resizable, as well, for the win. I've only tinkered with it for about 15 minutes, but damn it has taken me places. :)

Spexx was always awesome and now it's a lot more affordable. I don't like the new name (the original was distinct and told you what it is) but the rebranding needed to get away from the Google search results. The UI changes improved it. More visible on/off indicator on the modules, input/output/mix now grouped together, help button is more obvious, and the Venom logo now adds true bypass. We lost the CPU readout but I already have that in my DAW so no big loss.

On Windows, the presets are saved with a .prs extension. I copied them over from \ProgramData\Audio\Presets\ReCompose\Spexx to \ProgramData\Audio\Presets\WAProduction\Venom and they all load perfectly. I loaded the presets in a hex editor and I don't notice any differences in format.

If you buy it direct from WA Productions, its $11.80 with another 40% off with code WABlackXX which expires at some point, That means you can get Venom for around $7. Crazy. Also look out on their sire for other discounted tools that another 40% apply to - I picked up MidiQ and the Vocal Bundle with 5 plugins. Puncher was free. Total was $16. The ones I got are actually pretty good, and somewhat unique. Good impulse buy to for those suffering from GAS. Won't break the bank. Babylon is also included in the sale.

Still did not get Venom to my WAprod account (yes did described license migration process week ago or more, even already two times lol). Though it's not critically ofcourse, Spexx works fine under his key.
