Got 14 choices left and I'm still torn on what to pick up haha

149.99
x time, x drive, x vibe, x space

99.99
arc
amplitube orange
fender collection
jimi hendrix
slash
svx 1, 2

la confidential
clavitube
alternate keys
space port 77
american acoustic
alan parsons imperial grand
brandenburg piano
london grooves
cinematic percussion
orchestral percussion
future synths
Good choices !!!

The 4 X-pedals a must

From the rest I would consider dropping LA Confidential for being loops only

Also Space Port 77 for being a bit unsubstantial and not unique

Most got plenty pianos so those two "bread and butter" ones could be dropped

Maybe replaced with Art Deco that is more unique and mix-relavant

Metal collection for AT could be considered if you are at SE-level (its included in full 5-version)

A few random thoughts on a few choices...

x-drive...awesome...yes, most of the distortions are already in A5 as various stomps, but just having one device where you can simply swap out a different distortion algorithm in a flash is a real time saver.

fender collection 1...worth it for the FX alone...the twin reverb is a good clean amp/cab as well

svx...if you own Modo Bass, bypass the included amps, and go direct out into A5 SVX.

la confidential...disappointment...these are simply wav loop grooves, playable through SampleTank on keys C0 and up. It may generate an idea or two, but they seem a bit difficult to fit into a mix. YRMV.

If disk space is a problem, I found a good way to add some IKM plugins without using too much disk space. I gave stars to the presets I like in Syntronik, SampleTron and ST. Quite often there are preset groups like saw wave or whatever I do not like, I simply deleted the files. It takes some time to find the files sometimes, sometimes you delete something and it could affect a preset you like, but I managed to save quite a lot of disk space this way.

I am using and am very happy with Sonarworks (I do have their reference mic).

Is there any point in picking this up as a freebie?

I still can’t decide whether to use my last slot on the Hammond or remaining X-gear vibe pedal. 🤔
Great group buy though, Black Friday won’t be happening this year for me.
The Hammond is excellent and I'd definitely recommend it.

I have Amplitube Max and I found that the pedals in the X-Vibe weren't a whole lot different from what comes with Max, but try the demo and see what you think. I also don't use a ton of modulation when I play so take that into consideration as well. I did like the additional control though.

I’ve got the standard AmpliTube but have picked up most of the other gear during the group buy so I’m probably covered for modulation.

The Brian May pack has been the most enjoyable so far, would just be nice if I could play some Queen songs.

No, not if your happy with what you have.
Yeah, thanks, I figured pretty much. I Just have a $99 token "left" and don't care about anything much that I can spend it on. So it's either this or that ST4 acoustic guitar. So I'll go with the guitar then.

Picked up pretty much everything minus the X-padels, some of the ST4 drums and some of the very cheap stuff.

25 x 3

bought an Uno synth pro keys, MODO Bass, and an Ampitube expansion so covered all the price tiers.


Already owned Sampletank Max, Syntronik, Amplitude 5 and T-racks....got about everything now with a few promo codes left over. Other than the new Tascam tapes and resonator theres nothing they could add. Even selected a couple of plugs I already owned by accident lol.


The modo Bass is excellent...I use a thunderbird bass and comparing it to the software was really close through amplitibe (I normally use a fender amp in the "real" world)

The mellotrons great as well. :party:

5 entryes here 60-80-100-150-200 ,.. (but paid only a fraction of that)

Had some old Sampletank, some T-Rack, and a few Syntronik

Had nothing Amplitube

Ended up with all off it ,.. maxed out ,..

Included all MODO, Hammond, Sampletron, Lursen, ARC,.. and Miroslav SE

Some double or overlapping, som enabled to sell old licenses

Only thing "missing" is the full Miroslav, and the loop-based stuff ,.. would not use it anyway
