Is Analog Lab 4 for V Collection 6 exactly same as V Collection 7 except for the newly introduced instrument presets?

Be aware that Cytomic has one of the more restrictive license transfer policies. They charge 30% of the full price for transfer fees and do not allow to reset the plugin authorization count. And the plugin becomes NFR.

Someone was selling The Drop for $62 a few days ago here, but I think it's long gone by now.

I think Volcano 2 it's okay, but FF could do better.
Thanks. Yeah, I searched and saw it sold recently. Even $62 will be a bit high for me, considering I am getting a great deal on Pro-C 2 and Volcano 2 ($85 for both).

Is Drop only worth for its "filter" sound? Because on demoing Volcano 2 I see it is very powerful and sounds great.

EDIT: Just posted in sell & buy forum for a quick check if anyone is selling it.

Thank you for the alert. Did not know about the NFR part, and yes, 30% is pretty high. I think the best way is to get the plugin at the full price IF you really want it, simple. I compared it with Volcano 2 yesterday, and The Drop indeed sounds more fuller/richer. But again, not willing to or can afford $99 for only a filter plugin right now.

I just took a chance by posting in sell & buy, but it is very unlikely I will get any offer. I am almost ready to get Volcano 2 to get started on the filter journey. :) I can get FilterFreak in future when it goes on sale for $29.

I wonder if Arturia 3 Filters are worth considering. I am still seeing $99 for all their effects in my account, but when I try to add them to cart, it fails. :lol:

K looks like their site was only down for a bit. The following is taken from their Eula located here.

https://cytomic.com/sites/cytomic.com/f ... ense_0.pdf
(2d) License Transfers
You may transfer your license to the Software at the sole discretion of Cytomic in such that the following conditions have been:
1) A period of not less than 6 (six) months has passed since the most recent of the following has occurred:
i) you purchased your copy of the Software,
ii) you received a transfer of your copy of the Software,
iii) you downloaded an update of the Software.
2) The person receiving the license is made aware of the number of remaining authorisations available on the license as this number will remain un-changed upon transfer.
3) A transfer fee of 30% of the current full price for the plugin is received by Cytomic from the license owner.
4) The name and email address of who the software is to be transferred to is emailed to Cytomic by the primary user from their registered email address.
Once Cytomic deems the above conditions have been met and confirms that the recipient is aware of the authorisation count of the license the transfer can be approved.
I don’t see anything about them becoming nfr after the sale. I see that the activation count doesn’t get reset. Does anyone know if that gets replenished after so long, though? If not that’s kind of crap.

Thanks, looks interesting. Away from studio right now. Can anyone help: How does it compare to The Drop or any filter plugin for that matter?

EDIT: Listening to the demos on earphones. This thing sounds different than other filter plugins. Not sure if I really need it. A bit confused now. Sounds great nevertheless.

Thank you for sharing. I think those are too many conditions. Not helping me think in favour of getting The Drop at all.

From their QA page:

Each license automatically gets three authorisations per year,....

It seems that they changed the nfr condition. I did a transfer with them 3 years ago. Back then it became nfr. Good to know.

Hello, I'm thinking of taking advantage of the Sonible discount. I've tried Smart eq2 and I like the results, does anyone have an opinion whether I should go for the bundle of 3 eqs or get Frei:raum instead? Is there a difference at all?
Frei:raum includes the original Smart:EQ, not Smart:EQ 2. You would need to get the Sonible Special EQ Bundle. Also, I believe only the Special EQ Bundle is on sale so it's actually cheaper to get it than Frei:raum:

Does anyone know what the (historically )lowest price for softube console 1 9000k channel strip?
It was $199 in February. If it was ever lower than that, I don't think it was by much.
