    None are "must have" or particularly special. The Console E is a nice channel-strip, if the interface doesn't turn you off, and the subfilter can be useful if you're into that kind of thing.

    Sooo Many goodies, I just subscribe.. With 1 year payment U get a $250 voucher.. same cost as a year.

    But.. lets do this!

    MaagEQ4(Sweet nectar on voc,gtrs,)
    BAX Mastering EQ (My Mentor uses this religiously now)
    +1 For Console N (Dirt n grime)
    +1 For Focusrite Console (Crystal Clear)
    All the Amps Models (Diezel and AMPEG special)
    New Lindell 80's series is pretty dope.
    The Shadowhills Comp (especially the Class A)
    SPL Drum Xchanger (Not the best but very good for fast fix)
    STD-1 can do all kind of magic to sources
    Black box (of course)
    VSM-3
    all the Unfiltered Audio stuff is pretty dope, creative plugins.
    Lion is okay.

    But they have been insane with new plugins lately and have promises of more already.
    Cant wait.

    idk cuz, I'm a hardcore fan of the sister site and I pay my subscription for P.A. Every month..
    My Mentor had never tried P.A. Before now hes hooked.
    There's so many I keep finding new goodies 6 months later.
    I hate to say it... Charge it to the game holmez, Get um all.
    You get 3 Licenses with one subscription.
    I share mine with the Studio and a friend.

    What I really love though is everyone I see using the PA stuff uses different stuff.
    They have something for everyone.

    I got bx_Focusrite Console plugin for free because I own Focusrite ISA hardware. And I absolutely love the sound of it!
    (thanks to Focusrite for providing this lovely plugin to its' loyal customers)

    Another one is BAX Mastering EQ. Pure magic on this one.

    Just my 2 cents :winker:

    Check your email, I had the same issue and they reissued vouchers for everyone since many people had the same problem.
    I wrote them an email to describe the problem before they reissued one but I don't think it's necessary

    Class A is modelled after the shadowhills with red lights that has two class A transformers. In audio that means it has more punch, due to the better discreet compressor, the opto compressor stays the same. Also PA added the bottom panel with the TDM channels, headroom, width and mono. Parallel processing is available in both PA plugins. I would suggest to get the red instead of the green, not both.

    I would suggest you to get the underrated diode bridge compressor Lindell 345 or 245
    SPLIron or ShadowHills Red
    Lindel 80 series
    and either the SSL 4000 G or the console N

    Thanks. I replied to the newsletter about an hour ago. I'll wait til tomorrow and then maybe contact them via support email. I think this is not a "noreply" address since didn't get a "unable" to deliver notice.

    I bought the Lindel 7X-500 very cheap when PA still handled discounts differently and I've gotta say it's not a great 1176 clone. All Lindell Plugins are coded by LSR Audio and lack the sound quality of those coded by brainworx, imo.

    @Herr Tony
    Thank you for the explanation. Looks like if I wanna get Shadow Hills, it should be class A, then. I'll look into it more and then make up my mind.

    The difference in sound is small between Green and Red, but for me it was worthy. Download the trial, it runs for 30 days. Also try SPL Iron...
    Cheers!!!

    Not going to defend that plugin, I think I was also not impressed by it aswell. But the 245, 345 and 80 series really stand out.
    The 345 is a multiband version, so to speak of the 245. These are diode bridge compressors, and are known to add a nice weight, color and fatness to the material. While in the analog world those compressors may be too much, for a digital track, they work pretty good. The fat sound is what you will usually find in a good house and techno track.
    As for the 80 series, it is like if you used a maag EQ band couple with a neve console it makes the vocal present and alive and it is fast to setup.
    Experiment with them! maybe you will like them.
    Tschüss!!!
