I just purchased the windows version of Gullfoss at the introductory price.
Very impressed with it over the top of the whole mix.

Going to try deessing next :tu:

I am trying to figure out Gullfoss vs. SmartEQ 2...
Gullfoss is absolutely brilliant. It does one thing exceptionally well, but it only does one thing. SmartEQ, on the other hand, is something that allows you to tinker a bit. Personally, I prefer Gullfoss (by a lot), but I can see why some people might feel otherwise.

What kind of sales (if any) does U-he do?

(It's kind of hard to search for U-he because of the dash.)
(Yeah I see Ubhik is available in the Marketplace but the person only has 2 posts, so...)
Check the re-sellers, don't check the re-sellers. I don't care.

Very rarely. Usually intro sales. Sometimes survey vouchers. But it is rare to get U-he stuff cheaper than regular JRR pricing. I bought almost everything from U-he second hand.

I could have sworn there was one last BF because I remember looking at Diva. It was still a little high for me. It wasn't all their products though because Zebra wasn't on the sale.

There was a u-he sale on NI not that long ago. One of those NKS sales. But that was a very unusual event.

Got this in the mail today:

"I'm sad to let you know that April's goody bag was our last goody bag. For many reasons we have decided to bring our service to an end.

We want to thank you for being a Track Spark subscriber. We will close all the accounts on the last day of April which obviously means that no-one will pay in May.

Please let us know if you have any questions.

All the best,
Track Spark"

I hadn't heard of them before so I checked them out. Looks like you can get April's goody bag for free as part of the first month trial basis. You do need to provide a credit card or PayPal account, but they won't charge you and you can cancel anytime...
Since April is the last month, looks like it probably wouldn't hurt to check it out as long as you're OK to providing your PayPal account or credit card.

SPL DrumXchanger is $29 + VAT right now. When I looked for reviews, I found this opinion by Audiofanzine: "At $199.66 + VAT, the DrumXchanger is a no-brainer!". That was in 2010 though. 9 years later, is it a no-brainer at $29 I wonder?
It does what it says it does well, but honestly you should demo it (I did, before purchasing it on sale a while back). Another thing to consider is that it comes with the SPL transient designer built in (well 2 of them actually, one for the original source and one for the sample). I have occasionally used this plugin just for the transient designer on the "original" source, not even using it as a drum replacer at all.
A couple of great deals on this Easter sale. I thought PA was done for the month, but I was able to use my voucher to get ChannelX for peanuts.
You don't think there will be any more PA sales this month?...
PA just announced another sale this month, all amps and pedals $10 - $29.

I spent my $50 voucher on Drumxchanger just in case there wouldn't be any more good PA sales this month, probably should have waited until after getting everything on my wish list or the end of the month to use a voucher on a plugin I don't particularly want... has interesting creative potential though.

Argh, now I have to guess which PA amp will next be on sale when I still have a voucher. Chandler or Bassdude?

Well played

As far as I can remember Bassdude has been on sale way more often than Chandler (trying to get Chandler for a decent price for ages ;-) ).

Does Cytomic The Drop ever go on sale? Sounds great, but $99 is too much for me. I am seeing FabFilter Volcano 2 for about $45 in my account. Any suggestions here?
