    do you have FabFilter plugins? those are my absolute no.1 plugins to use,
    most people aren't even aware of the creative power those hide deep inside, Saturn and Timeless 2 particularly, this exact bundle has the good plugins included:

    Hi, Santii. It depends on what you're looking for and the kind of music you're planning to make. If you need a variety of different synths, try listening to the demos of the Sugar Bytes bundle ("Factory", included in the bundle, is a very interesting choice). and Rob Papen's Explorer. If you're looking for classic synth emulations, then check Arturia Collection - After you check those, you may take your pick.

    If you're looking for individual instruments, not bundles... there are a few good ones out there. Dmtry Sches Thorn and VPS Avenger are good synths with plenty of possibilities. Of course, there's always the usual suspects: Sylenth, Reveal Sound Spire and Xfer Record's Serum. If you're looking for a good emulation of different kinds of classic synths, check KV331 Audio's Synthmaster 2.8.

    P.S. By your name I assume you can speak Spanish. - I'm from Spain. If you need further feedback in Spanish, just let me know.
     
  4. You gave the $700 to a homeless person because they had nothing, because he was hungry, cold and alone and you had a nice warm room and everything that you really needed to live comfortably. Three days later while digging your vegetable garden you find a 25 kilo gold bar that was buried by the original owner of the house 75 earlier during WW2, the man dying in a bombing raid while away from home in the city center and never able to retieve his fortune. As you traveled to exchange the gold money at the bank you are attacked by a man with a knife but manage to run away before you are injured. The man with the knife is faster than you are as you are carrying the gold bar, and just a moment before he plunges the knife in your back, killing you and taking the gold, the homeless man that you had recently saved from the cruel, cold street seemingly comes out of nowhere and tackles the knife wielding man, knocking the knife out of his hand and into a storm drain. Two policemen who just happened to be driving by witness the events and immediately arrest the bad man. You split the money from the gold bar that you found 50/50 with the homeless man, you now able to buy absolutely anything that you want for your recording studio, and you both live happily ever after.

    Hola hermano! Muchas gracias por responderme. Te pregunto por las dudas, por que comprarías el thorn siendo que existe pirata la ultima versión? El serum ya lo compré porque tardaban mucho en sacar piratas los parches y siempre tenían problemas. Me gustaría que nos sigamos en alguna red o whatsapp!

    Give the money to someone in need, or buy something for Your parents... and, since You don`t know what You need, pick the plugins from a well known source, so the next time You will know what to buy, after testing everything that is out there and fits Your interests.

    depends what you really need, your computer specs (do you need more ram,upgrade to new pc,or processor,etc), what monitors do you have now? what soundcard/interface do you have? how is your workstation setup?

    i'd look into the important stuff first,pointless to get plugins if your computer cant handle the cpu stress,also pointless to invest in plugins if you dont have proper sound equipment to get a good reference. if i needed to spend 700 on something,probably new computer,or upgrade mine,also a desk,monitor stands,a second pair of monitors ,decent headphones, a 24bit 192khz interface/soundcard . decent microphone, if you want an analog synth - the novation bass station 2 is nice and use it as a midi keyboard/ controller. maybe some storage drives, a 5tb maybe.

    Softube plugins are a joy to use, great quality, great interfaces. But it's always a personal thing, just download a trial and compare.

    Mastering The Mix Reference is a wonderful tool to switch between your mix and your reference track so easily. Using it very often, you will appreciate it alot, trust me!

    FabFilter plugins are a must-have for any studio!
    I use them on every track, there is no mix I can think of without using FabFilter Pro-MB, the best multiband compressor plugin available. Again, test it and you will see. :)

    Depending of your level and needs.
    Music is hobby or professional ?
    Beginner or advanced in your carreer ?

    - Professionnal logo
    - Website
    - Proffessionnal foto shooting
    - Some online course (depending your level)
    - Optimize your internet presence (online marketing, social networking, etc)

    In term of hardware :

    - Try update CPU
    - Good soundcard : https://www.thomann.de/fr/rme_babyface_pro.htm
    - Good speakers : https://www.thomann.de/fr/presonus_sceptre_s8.htm

    Fabfilter and Sountoys are very good plugins available.
    For both, don't take all, just what you need.
    Best in Soundtoys: Echoboy, Decapitator and FilterFreak
    Fabfilter: all are good but is digital. That mean it will be a quality but sometimes a weakeness. If you look some "color" or something more ... Digital is sometimes too "chirurgical", too "clean" ...
    You can add some analoge stuff with Saturn :yes:
    Waves: if you look for specific emulation of hardware (Pultec, etc). H-Delay and H series in general are very good. CL3-A, CLA-76, API 2500 and SSl G Bust Master Compressor (Glue) are must have in any studio.
    Softube https://www.softube.com/buy.php : Best emulation ever (Pultec, etc)
    Cytomic https://cytomic.com/glue : The Glue very good emulation. If you work with Live is included.

    In other words, take in each brand the best producs.

    My 2 cents :guru:

    Bueno, chico. Digamos que ya tengo una edad y un buen sueldo (y desde que dejé el tabaco, me sobra un poco más para otros gastos), y aunque también uso algún que otro software no legal, cuando encuentro algún software que me parece merece la pena, y sobre todo cuando viene de alguna empresa pequeña que lucha por salir adelante, me gusta darle mi apoyo. Thorn es uno de esos ejemplos.

    Siempre que tengas una duda, puedes enviarme un mensaje por la mensajería interna de AudioZ. Suelo consultarlo. Saludos desde España.

    or 1000$ on Slate digital VMS!

    Acustica Purple bundle goes for 199 Euros. The M-5 is 99 by itself, and the E-1 is 119 by itself.
    I may try the trial soon. Been using the Waves ones up until now, but the Acustica stuff blows them away usually in terms of the color and harmonics added.

    UBK-1, Clariphonic MkII, Omega 458A Transformer and Novatron from thehouseofkush.com ...
    Also you might want to check Seventh Heaven Pro or its little brother from liquidsonics.com :wink:
    And lastly, Plugin Alliance has an ongoing christmas sale, visit their site every day and maybe they will have a perfect deal on something you might want to buy.

    I'd invest that to hardware - a pair of studio monitors, second screen for your workstation, extra RAM, SSD, and/or new headphones or MIDI controller. With software, most EULAs are made to put you only to the role of licensee, who doesn't own anything and basically have no rights to a product whatsoever, making the purchases not quite good value for money. With very few exceptions of course.
