shite. i already sprung for the waves. i hope they're useful anyway. i'll tell you, since hydratone, i've been much happier using plug EQ. was hoping these guys nailed at least the SSL EQ... gates should be a no brainer.

when i get a chance i'll A/B my 384 with the waves plug. if i see things differently i'll report back.
the one thing i noticed about this and the advanced poll is that the majority were hearing pretty much the same thing, whether on a laptop or not - maybe they thought #2 was the plug, the hardware, whatever, but the majority picked it as their favorite (before final results came in). in the 'advanced' poll the difference between #2 and #1/#3 was noticeably bigger IMHO, and the poll shows that.
of course i' ll hear 384/waves for myself, but i thought this poll rocked personally. if software guys used forums like this for their R&D, i think they'd make quicker progress! different rooms, different monitors, different ears, different laptops...
