And I can tell you this is much more than the $24 'loss' of a saturator plugin. I am disgusted with Waves' actions - and therefore ALL of my Waves plugins are currently a waste of money as I will refuse to use them or sell them to anyone else. Their non-responsiveness is making the issue WORSE. I will ask for a complete refund of every penny of every purchase.

ExVAT though - so add another 20%.

Is ImpOSCar still stand up? Oddity still sounds good and ImpOSCar was a favourite when released years ago but that was now some 15 years.

I'm interested in upgrading my Rob Papen Explorer 3 bundle to the current Explorer 6.0 version, mostly to get Punch 2.0.
The Papen website seems to indicate that Explorer 5--> 6.0 upgrade is $99. It then seems to say that ALL older Explorer version upgrades to 6.0 are also $99. And that they might be available from 3rd party retailers.

Does anyone know if there are any further discounts available from retailers for this? JRRshop only lists the V 5.0-->6.0 upgrade. Anyone? Uncle E?

Thanks
Cheers

Slightly below $83 at Bestservice (provided you don't have to pay VAT).

(You can also get it for around $88 from Time & Space.)

There's a trial download for all these so you can test them out, but this is ImpOSCar 2 which is 'only' 8 years old, a spring chicken ;-)

For me a plugin that sounds good a decade ago will probably still sound good today with the side benefit of not needing stupid amounts of CPU horsepower to do its thing. It's not like there are a number of Oscar clone VSTs kicking around - something you can't say for Oddity 2 or Minimonsta which has competition from the likes of Korg and Arturia respectively.

Also GForce are still developing them e.g. a note on the home page says they've all been rebuilt to be Apple Catalina compatible (a claim I can't test as I have a PC).

I only own M-Tron Pro of theirs (well his - I understand GForce is pretty much a one man operation) and have been eyeing these other synths up hoping there'd be a sale at some point. Very happy it extends until Christmas Day as I'll get paid again before it expires and I've already more than blown my cash this month.

I am not from US/UK/Europe, but when I buy from Best Service, I choose USD. When I buy from Time+Space, I prefer GBP/EUR. I have observed that doing this way gives me a better price. For example, if I choose GBP on Time+Space and I don't have a UK address, the tax is removed from the price.

I don't know if I full understand the economics of it, but I don't care as long as I get to pay a little less. :)

With that I could upgrade to Stereoizer full (from Elements) for $12.
Anyone using it/any opinions about the full version here ??? worth it ?

I totally missed your post, thanks for the heads up. I decided I'm not going with Slate and was set on Sphere, however I'm definitely intrigued with your mic and will dig around some I'd love to see some reviews first truthfully -- I'm not normally an early adopter, at least with more pricey items.
Thanks! My mic is $299.

It's says $599 but I can sell it for $299 if you PM me.

Confused whether to choose Abbey Road Chambers or Plates. I already have Soundtoys Little Plate (and Valhalla Vintage Verb & Room), so I wonder if I should choose Chambers?

Came across this interesting article: https://www.abbeyroad.com/news/how-to-u ... music-2585

Based on the information in it, I feel Plates would be more suitable for my purpose.

I have the demo installed now and will experiment a bit, but any suggestions on this?
Make sure to pay attention to the CPU usage as you're demoing them. Both sound great but are also hogs.

I don't think that this is the case with the Abbey Road plugins:
"* The Abbey Road Collection is excluded from new plugins being added for free with a current Waves Update Plan."
It is from the "Waves Update Plan" description page:
https://www.waves.com/support/waves-upd ... 1-EALw_wcB
Thanks! Sorry, it's not WUP, that was my fault for not being accurate or clear. My Waves account allows me to upgrade from my Abbey Road Collection to the current version for $24. When I do this, it tells me:

"The Abbey Road Collection upgrade will add any current Abbey Road plugins missing in your account. This upgrade is only available to Waves Abbey Road plugin owners"

I'm tempted to just get it at that price and see how it works out, its almost impossible to actually audition mics anymore -- especially if you have a specific setup, budget, or mic in mind.

People around here trust you Uncle, so I'll just ask you straight up what's your honest opinion on it? For the record I have a strong bass-heavy vocal from e2 to e4.
I will be posting audio examples soon. On vocals, you will not be able to distinguish it from the real U47. You can hear the differences more clearly on wide frequency material like acoustic guitars and drum overheads but even then I don't think you would say the NOS12 sounds any worse than the U47, just slightly more open.
