Postby Caine123; Fri May 18, 2018 12:28 am SoundToys - Why keep the "LITTLE" versions?

im wondering if you keep the LITTLE versions of plugins which have also a full version/BIG version. those BIG versions have everything the LITTLE versions have. i got some LITTLE licenses and might deacivate/sell them (if it's not too much fees included).

Faster workflow, less parameter clutter?

I think you answered to your question yourself :)

CPU hit. Little Radiator I use a lot b/c it sounds almost as good in most cases far as I can tell as Radiator. I rarely touch the eq part of Radiator anyways, although the input/output part I do use.

The Little versions count to get a discounted upgrade (I'm sure they do for the full bundle, I believe it's the same for single plugins too). You surrender your Little license (so you can't sell it separately anymore) and you get a discount.
I believe the "standard" licenses also include the the license for the "little" versions (when avaible).

Then you may want to keep a Little version on your system for compatibility with your previous projects (but that's up to you and the way you work).

I'm quite sure that I disabled some of the Little versions in Cubase to reduce the clutter in my plugin list; for example, I don't see any reason to show Little MicroShift along with Microshift in my plugin list, so it's hidden.

Because Little Plate is an orphan.

There's no regular AlterBoy, just the little one. Same for the Plate. EchoBoy Jr. (I guess technically not a Little version) has a nicer GUI than the full version, with a very competent feature set. Other than that, I don't really use them.

Because I'm too poor to afford the normal version.

You can fit more G.A.S. in the BIGGER plugins.
It's time to set the flux capacitor to 2018, bye bye VST2 and 32 bit.

In my case I have to keep Echoboy Jnr because even though I bought it fair and square brand new it is locked in my iLok and the transfer icon greyed out - iLok support say "talk to Soundtoys" and Soundtoys support won't respond. Annoying.
