Ok I bought it, you all are responsible
It only gets worse. I've actually picked up half of the SSL plugins over the last couple of years thanks to similar sales.

Same. Hook, line and sinker. Keen for the reverb for $40 too, oh and the drum and vocal strips :lol:
Is it just me though is their reverb almost mono? It's very narrow.

Its not you, it really is very narrow and I dont particulary like it. Compared to some big players like Valhalla, Relab and LiquidSonics, its far behind in terms of the quality.

I remember reading it was actually the Relab guy that did the SSL reverb, though quite some time ago. Same with IK’s reverbs. I might be remembering this wrong though.

Hi v1o,
thEQblue12 is currently on sale for US$272 or 30% off $389. BTW, Christoph’s Classic PEQ Blue has not been updated or supported for a while now…

I’ll find marketing fodder on product pages. If something claims to reinvent ITB equing that’s completely different to anything else i want to see some papers.
i.e Urs’ papers on ZDF or gullfoss papers on their eq

Relab did "X-Verb", not "FlexVerb".
X-Verb was SSL's reverb plugin before FlexVerb, and was generally well-regarded.

SSL discontinued X-Verb for whatever reasons and launched a new reverb, built by them, called "FlexVerb", which wasn't as well-regarded.

FlexVerb sounds pretty good to me. I've only seen positive feedback from users so far. Maybe post some of the negative feedback you allude to?

Ditto! It sounds great and has a great interface/workflow. Hard to complain for $30. :tu: I'm on a mission to eventually buy all the SSL plugins during their pretty regular no-brainer sales.

I'm just summing up some general observations of what I've observed online over the years. I never tried X-Verb, and I tried FlexVerb but didn't like it much (although the interface is quite nice). So I passed on the Flexverb deal, and instead invested that money into LiquidSonics, Relab and Reverb Foundry, and I'm very happy with those.

If you're interested in people's direct feedback on X-Verb, and the reaction when FlexVerb was introduced in comparison, you can of course Google around and I'm sure you'll see many of the things I saw over the years...

But if it works for you, great. Enjoy!

The anti-cramping seems interesting. I've never used oversampling, and given that I have a lot of experience I've experienced this, but it usually depends on the filter.

Still, thanks for sharing the information I will have to do some experiments of My own, an interesting idea. I've not always been a fan of crossover but it's a neat idea too, the parallel.
