    A lot of new posters in this thread.

    Plenty of things addressed to me in here I'd like to respond to, but not wishing to be "diversionary", I'll forget it.

    I get it now. The secret to great sound is to spend thousands of $$$ on plugins which do (almost) NOTHING!

    Well... I hate to repeat myself but the simple answer is, your "nothing" is "something" for someone else. It should be obvious, what you dismiss counting it for "nothing", someone else (including yours truly) claims is something, and something important.
    I will repeat that music in the "high gear" (professional level) is an art of extreme detail. Therefore, perception of even the slightest nuance is everything in the mixing biz (and much more in the mastering biz). Professionals or even serious enthusiasts will sacrifice countless hours and money and will try myriads of different effect chains in order to find the best -according to their ears- combinations.
    I could continue for ages but i don't have MMJ's epic stamina hehehe. I will just say that i have heard too many guys (mostly youngsters) saying Waves is shite, half the plugs do nothing etc etc. I will answer that, professional tools in the hands of noobs is like giving a Ferrari to someone who just got his driver's license. Experience, common sense and proven history implies that only a handful from hundreds of noobs will have the intelligence, patience and ears to learn how to correctly use and not abuse those serious tools, be it Waves or Nebula or FabFilter etc etc. Waves alone is responsible for the word audio plugin as they made the very first one (Q10 circa 1992) so people should think twice before saying anything about these guys, they are pioneers in their game.
    So if you don't get it, it doesn't mean it's not important. Keeping an open mind is "one more stone on the building" that makes musicians artists.
    Be well :)
