I like their plugins, and a couple of things in the T-racks line I use in most projects. I cannot deal with their business model and all the bs.
For example, I did the upgrade to Amplitube 5, loaded it in place of Amplitube 4 in the one project I've used it in the last few years, authorized it and in the project it begain emitting the blast of noise like I'm running a demo.

Deleting all that is way down on the list for my choosing never to buy again. Twice they changed the internal ID of the T-racks so it broke every instance of it in VE Pro projects; the second time was about a year ago. I went from OSX.15.6 to 15.7, OMFG. I have to watch it and save presets, which I don't do for most things because no one else pulls this kind of shit. VE Pro came out in 2009, it's not news like that.
I expected this to occur if only because Big Sur, but got lucky this time. And, not *the* worst support channel in the world, but it's down there afaic.

I don't have the elaborate setup with VE Pro that you do, but ina couple of instances, well more than a couple, things in Sampletank would go from authorized to not, causing me to waste time re-@uthorizing shit, rescan, yada. Must've taken a few hours off my clock, which wasn't appreciated.

I use those probably less than I might. it was a real eye-roller they did it again in 2020, but this was only a couple of instances and I have pretty definite ideas of what I want. I like the compressors for two things: a lead vocals type of thick boost (for instrument solos), and for different [more] body in snares and toms. But there are other ways.
