  1. I am very fortunate and blessed, as my dear Sister Julia offered to buy me $200 of plug-ins for my birthday, but I don't know what to get. I originally was going to just grab the Voxengo Marqius Compressor for $60 and be done with it but she got pissed at me and is making me spent the entire amount (don't mess around with her, she is a fucking pitbull). Anyway, I was thinking of either the new Slate Verbsuite for $200 and own it outright, or for $179/yearly subscribe to the whole shebang and she would make it a predictable yearly thing. I brain is like a log on fire and I don't know what to decide. Please, help me out with the poll and I will get whatever my friends here decide is the way to go ahead. All I ask, beside the poll itself and if you can spend the time, is to explain why your choice. Namaste my Sisters and Brothers, and thanks for the time and the help. I need to know tonight or she will kill me...or worse...because I have been procrastinating on this for weeks now.

    Edit: I will leave a blank if there is something incredible I am missing out on for a write in ballot. Please write and post any other ideas you feel strongly about.

    I voted VerbSuite. I don't know much about Slate plugins, my decision was solely based on my personal preference of owning things. You never know what's happening next year or in 5 years, but as soon as those yearly rate isn't paid, you are sitting there with your projects that included a slate plugin that you can't access anymore.
    What you own, on the other hand, will only vanish when you want it to disappear.

  4. Thanks tulamide, the future without the ability to go back and access a project is something that I missed thinking about. Thanks.

    I'm against any subscription scheme like Avid or Eastwest because in the end it's just renting and you don't own the damn thing therefore I would go with the reverb (which is very convincing by the way).

    Happy birthday mate! :wink:

    have fun and Happy BirthDay man, as for the plugs i would go with Acustica too but if you like Slate dont chose the subscription model ... or buy from Quinto, at SKnote, his plugins are rock solid ! and each cost 29$

    All silver USB audio cables $180 for 1.5 meters. $220 for 2 meters.
    Cant have oxygen molecules getting in the way of your digital bits.

    thats a joke

    Verbsuite does sound really nice.

    I want to love the acustica stuff but Im still learning it. After reading the manuals I was actually more confused about the plugins. Has nothing to do with the plug-ins though. It's just my skills as an engineer in general that are lacking. I was born ITB, I didn't come from an analog realm. Unless you count daisychained guitar pedals

    I voted for the yearly everything bundle.

    It gives you a year to really find out what you like from Mr. Slate. After a year you can cancel and start buying what you like and would use. I am guilty of spending a lot of money on plugins and gear that just sit around and become either real or virtual paper weights. As I've gotten older I've settled on few thing that I actually really like and use the most often. I have not given up looking for faster and better it is just that criterion for leaving what I have to go to something else has gotten a lot more stringent over the years.

    Have a wonderful birthday.

    Happy Birthday. Spend the money on a massive cake and send a piece to all your AudioSex pals, or get Verbsuite. The choice is yours.

    I vote cake.
