So are you saying that I need to buy a plugin and plugin it to my GAS hole and deprive the world from the aroma?
You're right, that was a horrible idea! Just remember to always pull your car over first before you stick your head between your legs to get a better smell. Really not safe in a moving vehicle (I learned that the hard way)! :party:

Upgrade = crossgrade. Update = upgrade.

i just need something i can clean up useless ambient audio frequencies. i might jump on the SL deal. looking thru the manual and doc. i just get a weird vibe about Magix. its like they are a Corel kind of company. not a market leader and just gimicky ads. i dont know.
SL was not created by Magix and they passed it on to Steinberg fairly quickly after purchasing it.
There are reasons not to buy SL but I don't see Magix as being one of them.

For cleaning up audio RX 7 Standard is worth consideration.
Get the Crossgrade for $84

If you don't have a base for the crossgrade get this for ~$10:

So, I don’t own Amplified Funk (or any versiojn of it), but the select2020 doesn’t work even though the T&C for the voucher says this:

"1. This e-voucher is valid on all Native Instruments software downloads available at the NI Online Shop. It is NOT valid on updates, upgrades, crossgrades, edu licenses, hardware, or products that are part of a special offer."

any idea why?

Thankx for links. What are your thoughts as a reason for not getting SL? Just wondering.

If I own Ozone 9 Elements, does that qualify to buy the RX7 Standard mentioned above at the discounted price? I like how NI tells you which version will work.

That's fine at it says "CROSSGRADE FROM ANY PAID IZOTOPE/EXPONENTIAL AUDIO".
So any Elements product is good.

1. I hear that version 6 isn't great.
2. Has had three owners in a short time span which might explain 1).
3. Maybe better for sound design whereas RX is seen as one of the industry standards I think!.

If the price is right via a good deal then not much of a downside.
I'd buy SL6 for playing and RX7 for work if that makes sense.
It's just an opinion and I can't back it up so feel free to get more informed input.

it is coming up at $99 and not $84. Is there a code to add?
Have you added it to the basket as $99 is the headline price?
With JRR a lot of stuff gets discounted in the basket.
If not, then there are codes.

I read a blog that says the same thing but I don’t understand the basis for it. It seems to me they do exactly the same thing. The RX spectral editor has always done everything I need, I’ve never used it and thought “if only it could...”

That's why I qualified my statement as it could be hearsay and I don't like to spread rumours without making it clear that's what they are.
Overall from what I've heard I'd buy RX7 as a safer bet as I've only heard positives about it.

Sorry, I hope it didn’t sound like I was contradicting you. I’m far from an expert on SL and could absolutely be ignorant of some aspect that makes it great.

Not at all. I was just being cautious in passing on info about 2 products that I haven't personally compared.
Sometimes you pick up info on your travels and feel it may be worth sharing even though it's not from direct experience.
