I've got the feeling this is because UA sticks out like a sore thumb in PA's catalogue.
I sort of agree - but PA's give away (which I think may have been free anyway and not actually theirs) shows an interest in the experimental by PA's owners.

Add Eventide Physion (formerly Fission) to the list of current spectral plugs.

Re Eventide Physion, I can't afford it, but I've been doing a sort of lo-fi poor man's version with Unfiltered Audio G8.

Set up your DAW to give G8's reject outputs their own channel. Change the gate type to one-shot mode, and engage the 'flip' switch. The effect is such that, every time the signal exceeds the gate threshold, it comes through the main outputs for attack+hold+release time, then out of the reject outputs until the signal exceeds the threshold again. Works great for separating the transient and body of 'obviously' transient material, where each transient = a spike in volume.

G8 is (AFAIK) 100% transparent when summing the main and reject outputs together (no artefacts at all -
it sounds like the plug-in is doing nothing) so it's surprisingly clean when it comes to applying different effects to each part. And of course, unlike Physion, you can use any effect in your library!

ah, spectral fx. the last missing link in my plugin list.
every time i find something on kvr that looks interesting, i end up asking myself the question "does it give me anything i haven't got from my melda bundle", and the answer is always no. so i have to admit, melda has actually cured my GAS!
but spectral plugins..
i search and search, but nothing is giving me the unique creative sounds i used to get from sonic foundry noise reduction plugin.
reafir comes very close, but i dont use that company for personal reasons, so the search goes on

As far as cost, that’s why I buy expensive plugins from KVR ;-). And in Ableton anyway, I just clone an instance to another lane in the rack and effect that way.

Can’t say that Physion is totally clean though. I do hear artifacts depending on the threshold settings.

we know; they were first mentioned back in November, and the author posted about them in the thread a mere four days ago.

i haven't figured a way to do this successfully in Cubase 6.5 yet unfortunately. it's so easy in Live, but for some reason isn't working in Cubase... i'll try the VST3... anyone using G8 successfully in Cubase?

That would be most welcome!
