Edit: checked Audiodeluxe and with in cart discount it works out only $10 more than the Kilohearts bundle
I have MB7. One downfall of MB7 is Blue Cat doesn't allow license transfers, where-as KHz does and it appears to be free.
KHz bundle offers some refinments over MB7, namely the integration of modulation and a unified UX. Also the consistent design across the plugins (what do they call them, snapins?) make for a smoother workflow and all the plugins compliment each other.
With MB7 you have the ultimate flexibility but that isn't always necessarily a benefit. It can make it harder to get results fast and it's easier to go down a dead end. I think they compliment each other but are not really direct competitors. Unless perhaps if you constrain yourself to a set of plugins that are similar in MB7; for example U-he Uhbik, Plug n Mix, ha.. maybe even Melda.
The question you have to answer is: is having a less flexible, optimally integrated FX tool kit to work with worth $100 USD.
(That's my rationale anyway. Basically it's a lot of GAS)
