I've just bought it too, used it on several tracks already, i feel like someone who said it earlier, this kind of plugins are a major step up for ITB producers/engineers! Congrats to all @kushaudio!

Greg, by the insane amount of response generated by this plug, you must have some new ideas of future plugs already floating around. If kush continues to make processors on this level of perfection and genius, I might just have to move my waves plugins over to the "unused plugins" folder. Lol. Btw, the idea of you making a tape em with no model in mind is brilliant, act on this!

Greg, could you pls make the big knobs a bit smaller and at the same time make the meters bigger and more readible ?

Also, why not keep the 4 comp settings as switchable presets and add full compressor settings (ratio, threshold, attack, release) for us to have more control ?

And you may add:
- transformer and tube saturation in the sat section
- maybe add a sat section too at the end of the comp (output)
- a sidechain section with eq knob

I agree! Heard some forum rumours about a beta release for PC VST, but can't find any official words about this anywhere.

I understand your desire but as Greg said in his manual video: You may use .... your ears. So this is done on purpose and I love it. Maybe you get into it once you actually work with this plugin.

I think the ubk-1 is much about mixing in the right amount of compression. (and sat and density). And it does kinda have a treshold... You should watch the manual video.

This is the most sensitive and best reacting dynamic plugin ever. What this thing can do is absolutely unmatched. The way you can change your material is unbelievable. I think calling it movement generator is really appropriate. In terms of dynamics and space.

I hope the vst gets released soon so you can hear it yourself. I understand your theory-crafting, but trust me: you can absolutely control the ubk behaviour, it reacts very sensitively and all controls react, fit and complement eachother perfectly. And this thing has not a small sweetspot as so many others, this whole thing IS a sweetspot.

The sidechain is planned afaik. The other points are just theory crafting again. If this plugin does not sound awesome than I dont know.

I'm working with the vst beta right now (for the last 5 days), and I can say that it works 100% so far! (I've also told Greg this)

At this point I have witnessed at least 3 people decide they needed this plug just from watching the UBK Video Manual and then twisting my knobs a little.

- probably a good 50% just based on Gregory Scott's awesomely smooth and smarmy narration.

Smarmy may not be the right word

Yeah, I can't get on board with 'smarmy', it implies a lack of integrity or earnestness to me and I while I may be delusional, I nevertheless labor under the belief that my enthusiasm for this stuff is genuine.

Few things in the world have the ability to entertain me for hours on end like bending sound. I don't know if anyone else is the same, I don't even need an agenda or a reason for doing it; I'll blend and eq and compress sounds for hours and lose myself and all sense of time. I don't care if a mix is getting done, I enjoy the experience of pushing and pulling frequencies and transients, hearing new combinations and shapes emerge and take form.

My dad's the same but with bike rides. He doesn't need to get anywhere and he always ends up back where he started; he just likes being on the bike, moving the pedals, feeling the wind. It's not about anything but enjoying the ride.

I'm the same. I can futz with a single effect for hours if I let myself. Also with trying different mic techniques and programming synths.

I just like to make noise different and must continue or I'll die.

No offense meant by "smarmy", of course, but you do have a little bit of lounge act in the mix

I did this enjoyment of sound shaping so much in the last year that I hadn't finished many many things because of it.

It's an amazing transcendental experience but I would like to take it out of my own ego-fueling experience and somehow share it with other people...

PC VST and AAX Native are ready!

Praise jeebus, the betas have officially passed muster with a large number of folks so we're gonna wrap these puppies up into a new installer which will drop on Friday April 6.

Woohoo!!!

Yaay! Of course, it has to be released on the exact day that I am set to leave on vacation with the Missus. Oh well, what's another week after waiting 4 months!
