TC is a great general purpose reverb with a "vintage" flair. Lots of flexibility and depth. Lustrous Plates can do better plates, though. If you want to use 3rd party IRs plus get the M7 and Lexicon IRs as part of it, Reverberate 3 is a fantastic deal.LoveEnigma18 wrote: ↑Wed Nov 30, 2022 10:14 am I watched Tai Chi (full/standard) walkthrough video and now it makes me want it more than Lite. It's not as daunting as I originally thought and the advanced controls actually seem to be very useful. Also, there are 200 more presets than Lite, which should make things easier.

Buying Lite first and then upgrading to the Standard version using the 10% loyalty discount will provide a $7 saving compared to buying the Standard version outright for $99. It will also give some time to make the upgrade decision, as there are about 11 days still left in the sale.
This might be the most I would be spending for a single effect plugin ever, but I think it deserves it. After checking out demos of other LS/RF plugins, I think Tai Chi alone should be more than enough for me. It sounds the most impressive to me and also the GUI is absolutely gorgeous.
HDCart and Seventh Heaven are emulations, so, unless you want/love the originals, they aren't "needed".
Cinematic Rooms is more realistic (but can also have some color) and beautiful to my ears - but can't get wild like TC.
And then there's Illusion.
Generally speaking, the full versions are noticeably better than the standard ones - even if you work in stereo rather than surround.
This guy isn't my favorite presenter, but he does a good job of giving a detailed overview of Tai Chi
