In my experience UAD plugs are top notch. That said, I think their pricing is getting out of hand with th new stuff. IDK, I guess some people can afford $350 for a new plug, but they are pricing me out of their range. Sad, I love their stuff. The waves stuff is very good too, but there are lots of options in that quality range.
I did all the extensive and complicated work arounds that tech support suggested - like gathering mushrooms at midnight under a full moon, do a full reboot, power on the unit, rub dog feces on you left buttock while dancing a little jig on one foot, open regedit, rub your nose three times, go to currentcontrolset, and whck off to a picture of a unicorn! IT DOESN'T F'ING WORK!!!
