don't know about noobs or presets, nor am I a huge Waves fan or anything like it, but if I could account for which plugin made me the most money, Waves X-noise sits right there at the top.
If you buy CLA plugins expecting to have CLA mixes, does that make Waves a joke or does that make you a joke?
If you don't like them, don't buy them. That's what demos are for.
