That's a point - does this have HD graphics support? VST3? (I find their website doesn't load properly for me so hard to find out information)
I see in Flux Center vst2 only (from where all plugs can be installed, they already long time do not have downloadable separate installers).
About HD graphics support - sorry what this means (i'm behind the times lol), it about resize ability ? - then no, i not see such feature.

So Ircamverb…

https://www.flux.audio/ircam-by-flux-st ... ic-reverb/

Heard so many good things about this one but always seemed too expensive - so is it worth it now?
One of my fav reverbs (together with B2, i would say his brother in some sense) for 99 i would grab.
Bought it in Studio bundle in 2016, for 300.
Well, ofcourse many reverbs was released with top notch tails and freeze since that, so my opinion can be not objective, additionally i just like his customizability.
But again, need keep in mind that there is sales for Studio bundle, and price (today) can be just litle more than for Reverb only, so if speech manglers is your cup of tee, have a reason to think twice.

Another aspect is about Ircam support. I do not want to say that he is the worst (there has been some revival in recent times, so there is hope ), but quite unusual since it goes through another vendor. In general you should be ready, if you will lucky enough to find a bug, you can wait for years for fix.
And need say, Flux has as it seemed to me pretty good support, but they do not have access to Ircam stuff sources, so they not fix it directly. Ie in known sense they are not responsible for its technical condition. Such a telegraph also does not contribute to the speed of solving problem.

And about current condition of Ircam plugs - there are moments.
If talk only about Reverb - there were no problems with it (it seems it has always been the most hassle-free of ircam plugs), until the recent update (2020) - with this I found that appears some glitches for UI elements, for example - if you double-click on an ordinary two-way button (instead single click) - appears some input field (?). Such non-critical issues, but newertheless. I'm afraid this is not a good sign. And i still use old Reverb version for example.
That's a point - does this have HD graphics support? VST3? (I find their website doesn't load properly for me so hard to find out information)
Definitely a very low res and hard to read GUI, it sounds lush though.

I'm going to give it a miss until it gets a GUI I can see properly.

Oh...I don't want to seem impolite towards users who really have vision problems, but frankly to say exactly these two topics (UI resize and VST3) make me allergic, by different reasons.
So, if take the average (usual) perception - all the details of Verb are perfectly readable, even at a 2K monitor.
Sorry, could not resist, just the last (recent) victim of resize requests - the wonderful Reason DAW, can say, was partially destroyed thanks to this.
The similar about VST3 - I seriously don't understand this need.

HiDPI has been around since 2012… still offering only nonretina graphics is abysmal in 2021.

There are not a lot good Dolby Atmos compatible reverbs out there.

Sorry, I not quite understand what means "retina graphics" (it seems to me something from Mac), but i more often see more pleasant UI's (fonts, ergonomics, general design) not in a new plugs.
I can't say whether they was released before 12, but mostly somewhere in this area it seems.
Although, from other hand, there is probability that something in me is so outdated that the taste has overshadowed some obviously more convenient things for everyone lol. Hard to say.

“Retina” is a stupid Apple marketing term for high resolution, high pixel density screens. An effective one, so maybe not stupid in the end. But it sounds stupid talking about a screen like it’s part of an eye.

Steinberg still shows the 50% off promotion page, but looks like it has ended and the code SUMMERSALE is not working anymore. I am possibly interested in Groove Agent 5. Is anyone still offering it for 50% off? Tried checking some usual resellers, but no luck.

I see, I have no idea. Actually, I stumbled on the sale link only yesterday, and realized I was a bit too late. I like the sound content of Groove Agent 5 and the software has some pretty good features. I already have Battery 4 and XO as its close competitors, but there is still something in the sounds (at least) that come with it.

There seems to be 50% sales every few months so I wouldn’t worry about missing out too much

WatchTheGuitar: Okay, good to know, thanks. Not urgent anyway, so can wait for the next sale and see if I still have the same interest.

so re: flux ircam sale, is anything else aside reverb on sale? i can't find the studio bundle that someone mentioned.

mostly interested in Trax, i don't think there's any equivalently deep voice mangler on the market.
