Well then I'm all ears :-)
I use what works best and makes sense workflow-wise and $$-wise, like most I'd assume .
Basically, for me the new SSD has to sound better, be more flexible, offer more variety AND be cheaper (or in the ballpark if its really that much better).
I'm not trying to sound greedy or anything, but the reality of changing software is a monetary+workflow one. I see too many people getting everything that comes out, thinking they're "safe", looking for the next magic bullet, and I heavily suspect that lots of developpers on these boards pray on them.
In the meantime, most pros are still using PT7, waves L1 etc...because it works, and it doesn't make sense to change a workflow that's efficient. Only waiting for the next true game changer to upgrade.
We're completely saturated with tons of the same re-packaged stuff, the subtle differences that some plugs offer isn't a game changer by any strech of the imagination, turning the vintage-looking knob on the picture-perfect GUI makes you think so... I would love to know how many have bought 4-5 different EQ plugs and realized a year later that the stock plugin works just the same in most situations. I'm definitely over the hype factor Gearslutz has brought up over and over again...
Anyway, I disgress, it doesn't really matter...if it suits my needs I'll get it. We'll see when it comes out. I definitely don't want tobe part of one of those 20 pages speculation threads, so I'll stop here
