If you didn't get these for free, would you buy the Analog Effects Collection or single plugins to use in another DAW?
That's a capital question. While the PreSonus effects plugins are solid, I personally would not pay for them unless they just happened to be included as part of a bigger paid offering (e.g. the AIR effects plugins were included in a comprehensive AIR bundle package I purchased which also included almost all of the virtual instruments).

TBH, I wouldn't pay for them either. The effects in Studio One are fine, but, IMO, not much more.
Plugins and a DAW. On an operating system. Which runs on a computer.

Some of these plugins still make me curious, but I can't find download links for demo versions, not even after creating an account.

Thanks for all the help on this thread.

I am a Pro5 user (not Sphere) and I didn't get an email but can confirm that after I logged in and put the items in my basket I got a £70 discount so it was free!

Downloaded, installed- great free gift!!

Red light district is a joke really
It's been there since version 1 and it's not really an example of analogue modelling

Well, to be frank I much rather think your post is a joke.

I am not sure, whether it was always like that (I seem to remember it not sounding very good at all) but according to Presonus Redlight features what they call "State Space":

https://forums.presonus.com/viewtopic.p ... 366&p=2543

But buzzwords aside - and much more importantly - Redlight simply sounds very good now. It does not matter at all whether you may call the algorithms they use for it "analog modelling". It sounds schweet and convinving. But of course as with everything it's garbage in = garbage out.

It's not my problem some people can't distinguish a good modelling saturation from a bad one .
Edit : I haven't updated to the latest version of studio one , in previous versions redlight was NOT state space
Maybe it's been improved , but the non state space version was nothing but mediocre
Nice one wit the garbage in-out ..very original :roll:

As I said: I seem to have a faint memory of it being pretty bad but the only real opinion I have of it now is of the current one.
