The only insta-buy developers for me are Valhalla and Sound Dust. Both Sean and Pendle are just really good, talented people who pack complex and creative high-end features in simple, brilliant, low-end-priced plug-ins. And they both give freely and generously with many of their titles. It’s nice to see this spirit and positivity on GS. Cheers Sean

Wow, this is an insanely creative plug-in. I'm scrolling through presets with just ordinary Juno patches and it's like a new song with each preset.

Thank you Valhalla peeps. I own all of your plugs and they're fab...and this one is something special!

Love the Supermassive. I'd buy the rest if they came in a bundled deal.

They're $50 each - an absolute bargain considering how good they are! You even get to try them out ....

Like Sean says on his site - every day is BlackFriday at ValhallaDSP

We even have a video about that!



On a non-Supermassive tangent: That video taught me something interesting about music. The composition used was something I had done with the Moog Matriarch, exploring the idea of looping phrases that are a prime numbered integer of beats long:



9 individual one-shot notes from the Moog Matriarch. Each note is played in its own clip. The clip lengths are set to different prime numbers of quarter notes, i.e. 13/4, 17/4, 23/4, and so on. ValhallaDelay used for reverb, delay, pitched reverbs.

Anyways...the piece never really GOES anywhere. It's just 3 1/2 minutes of non-repeating patterns, but the lack of repeats doesn't mean that it evolves or anything like that. In its full length forum, it's kinda boring. And overly Eno derivative.

A few months later, Kristin was making that video. She took some of my cell phone footage of the Sammamish River, cut out a minute of music from the above piece, and added some Jack Handy-ish titles that she wrote. The music that was boring on its own for 3.5 minutes, works GREAT as the background for a deliberately ambient video that is a minute long. The goal of the video is to slow down the pace for a little bit, and the music works well for that.

I'm tying to limit my gear, both hard and soft, to just the essentials. To quote the English king from Bugs Bunny, "Every day, it's the same thing. Variety!" Thus, my quandary. I currently have some 175-ish plugins that I need to go through and prune out the ones I never use and possibly the ones I only sometime use.

Oh! I’m sorry! You must have wandered into the wrong forum. Beat it, bub! Scram!

It's a lack of space thing, really. Both virtually and IRL. Less is the new more. The GAS is infinite. When you stare into the GAS, it stares back into you!

Sorry, you got me on a Bugs Bunny jag. Perhaps I shouldn’t have learned how to interact with people asked on those cartoons, but here we are.

I hear you, though. The plugins don’t bother me. I’ll keep things around that I maybe don’t use for years, but hard drive space hasn’t run out yet, and every time I update my computer I end up culling out the riff-raff. Hardware... though. I’m eyeing my Microfreak. It’s not that I dislike it, I just haven’t found myself going for it that much. Maybe it’s time to ditch it so it can find a home with more love. I do hate having things around that don’t get much use.

Wow, excellent effects when automating short delay times, and some real contrast between modes. Sounds gorgeous.

Definitely don’t try Valhalla Delay. It will break you.

It's not so much a disk space thing with VSTs, but a mindshare thing. For example, I have all of these installed: https://www.gvst.co.uk/ They aren't bad, some are quite utilitarian and good, but there's only one out of over twenty that I use: the indispensable tuner. I'm constantly needing it for something or other and its the best I've found. Yet, when I go through my VSTs looking for something, there's 20+ other ones saying, What about me? What about my needs?

VSTs generally don't get deleted, just banished to the Old VST home so they don't get scanned into my DAW. Like the Expendables, I can press them into service again if there's ever a need.

And seriously, how many bad reverb plugins do I need?!?

(It's okay, I'm going to start my own forum, with blackjack! And hookers! I call it "GearCorkSniffers".)

I love the plugin , but I was wondering if the algoritms are carefully crafted ( spreaded ) taps like in ubermod ?
This is obvious when there is no feedback dialed in and tempo synced , some fade in (slope parameter in ubermod ) etc..
It would be absolutley awesome if we could have a user defined tap window , with user adjustable spacing etc ( think echoboy ) .
Maybe an expanded ubermod/delay

Nope! Not a multitap structure at all.

The weird "fading" effects are all the result of the particular feedback delay network structure being used. Each Mode has a different FDN topology. Hint: a "feedback delay network" can also incorporate feedforward design techniques.

I don't know about that -- I like that full-length version quite a bit!

I think you missed the part where I wrote ubermod/delay
