    Great value. After careful deliberation I'm only going to install the bx_Oberhausen, HG Blackbox Analog Design and the Ethereal Earth library by Native Instruments. The latter seems to have some cool sounds like Sitars, which are rare to find.

    I saw mixed reviews about the accuracy of the Shadow Hills Mastering compressor and I don't get why they would make two versions: one standard version and one extended version that requires a paid upgrade, basically saying: if you want all the features you need to pay an extra amount. Sure, it's a freebie right now (the standard version), but I would be concerned if I was about to buy the plugin for money.

    Also, the SH Mastering compressor and the Masterdesk doesn't seem to add anything that is not already there in a much better version in my current setup. Why would I use something like the Focusrite console emulation, if I have better EQs, compressors etc at hand?

    Merci beaucoup mais même après plusieurs essais, ça ne marche pas.
    Toujours le même message Aucune licence trouvée, créez une licence de démonstration gratuite de 14 jours.
    J’ai seulement réussi à activer BX_OBERHAUSEN.

    They are different hardware units, the newer one is the Vintage King version.

    Good to know, thanks for the context! I saw a shootout on Youtube between the hardware and plugin (regular versions) and the software sounded significantly different from the hardware at equal settings. I always wonder about the merit of using "analog emulations" that do not sound like the modelled hardware at all. Why not use something like Klanghelm DC8C or TDR Kotelnikov, which never claims to model hardware, but does a great compression job?

    probably i miss something. I have tried several times (it is very easy) on big sur, but still not possible to use them at the same time. Main license on main hd and r2r on external drive, same machine id of course.

    :(

    the dude is right, it only allows one of two vouchers, not both. the 10% one only applies for the shadow hills' value, not the entire thing

    PA really trying to put pressure on the market :D

    Before I took the PA Soundwide Bundle offer, I was afraid that I would maybe lose licenses for plugins I already owned (bx_oberhausen, Black Box HG-2 and bx_console Focusrite SC). So I checked the TOS before I accepted. I couldn't find any references to "soundwide" in regards to "hey if you already own licenses for these plugins we will remove them from your account" so I accepted.

    Afterwards I checked my licenses and saw that I now have 5 remaining activations for plugins I already own instead of 2. So technically, you don't get another license you can then sell but you get additional activations instead. Which is cool. At the end I still get 3 other plugins for free. And who doesn't want a free Shadow Hills Mastering Comp, right?!

    So for people who already own some of these you don't need to worry!

    They've now closed this loophole. Adding the 10% voucher does not discount the $599 welcome bundle, like it did before, allowing you to remove $60 from the combined order.

    It's two different plugins. If you own Green, you get a discount on Red, if you want to buy that.

    The Red version is modelled on a different hardware revision, sounds different, has some different compressor behaviours, and has a bunch of extra features (linked knobs, the whole extra unit on the bottom etc).

    For the people trying to run both versions of the software (legit and cracked on windows) have you tried registering the legit one taking out the cross on the check box that says "register all"?? I did it like that and so far I'm runing both versions side to side without usb / disk needed to separate licenses

    Because a USB HD is not a USB thumb drive/key. Authorising to a USB hard drive is not supported. You can either auth to your internal HD, or a USB key, as to the install instructions/support documentation.

    Then you're doing something wrong. Probably leaving "apply to all licences" checked or something and so nuked the other license file when you auth different licenses.
    If you do it correctly, it works just fine. All your legit licenses need to be on one device, all your "other account" licenses on a different device. That's it.
