First it's really a shame that we don't get ssl bundle or at least a Mega bundle ( like mercury price) where you choose your components !
Anyway , great deals actually .....now i'm just wondering all those signature stuff , are they actually used by real pros ? real mixer input would be welcomed ....they sound good , sometime surprisng (in sonic direction that i wouldn't have thought about) ....
Also we can use this thread for wish/request component we would love to see next (hope waves will see it !)
Some i would love from them :
Dimension D (roland)
Some more of CLA comps (more than only UA comp in its racks
Some more m/s processing
An updated metering/analysis suite (gognio, spectrum...ect)
More consoles in NLS
I don't believe the Pros actually use their signature plugins. The signature plugins are supposed to emulate the sound of several different pieces of gear that they use all wrapped up into one plugins with a few knobs.
The Pros will use the gear those plugins are based off of. Using those plugins would actually limit their flexibility by giving them 4-5 knobs instead of 4-5 pieces of gear with several knobs.
I am not a big fan of the "all-in-one guitar" plugins or drums or bass or anything else like that. The Kramer Master Tape, CLA classic compressors and things like that are cool, though.
