Oh my goodness, yes. I fully agree. Mostly NFR libraries that I thought I needed.

It'll be on sale during Black Friday for $153 at JRRshop for all that plus 5 other plugins. Better value to wait. Think of it like that.
That’s more than $10 each, if ever.
Better get the present deal at 28 plugins for $99.

Aren't the other plugs more expensive?

I've managed to resist Kilohearts too. I reckon i can hang on until the end of year sales then reconsider, I'd deffo grab Thorn next time it goes on sale though.

For now I've still got to deal with this half-price AudioThing voucher that keeps nagging at me.

I got the EQ bundle separately, as well as the synth (One) for $19, including the Reason version.

If ever? Maybe... But I asked KH via email and they said:

"Hi Rational,

I just looked it up, and if you get the kHs Toolbox and Multipass and nothing else, the upgrade cost to get The Works is $180 at the moment. That includes Carve EQ, Slice EQ, Disperser, Faturator, and kHs ONE, at a retail value of $375 if bought individually.

I understand that this is more then you hoped for, but as you point out we regularly offer discounts, and if they apply to a bundle they also apply to upgrades on that bundle.

Cheers / Per @ Kilohearts"

Emphasis mine.

Yeah, but you never know if they’ll offer the entire Works again for $153.
Since I don’t need/like Faturator as there’s already lots of distortion included in the Toolbox, the present deal was the better one for me.
Anyway, almost gone.

Fleer, how much was your EQ bundle?

KHS one for $19 is not bad. I'd take that. It's a phat sounding little synth surprisingly for an upstart.

Do you have Disperser and Faturator? I'm thinking all 5 of those would push it over the $53 difference.

Have the same dilemna: do I save £25 by using the voucher or do I save £25 by not using it?

Think most of their stuff comes in three categories:
1/ Stuff I already bought/got as freebies
2/ Stuff for functions I already have covered
3/ Stuff that looks like it does something different to what I already have but don't really have much use for what it does

So that's me £25 better off :D

I have Disperser, but wasn’t necessary. Don’t care for Faturator, as explained. And I’m sure the EQ bundle will pop up again at a low price. Got them myself by exchanging doubles. Meanwhile, the Toolbox already includes a new EQ.

I never liked Faturator until I needed it. :) It really helped me on my most recent track.

Did you try the distortion plugin in Toolbox?

Thanks. Yeah, I don't care for Faturator either. It sounds awful to my ear. At least the demo or two I looked at on YT.

I really like their modularity matrix layout (Multipass) as it's VERY efficient for daily usage/sound design and their trance gate. That gate sounds awesome.

No. Haven't demo'd their stuff yet myself.
