Yeah , it's supposed to be actual Weiss code for the audio path. The GUI ,etc is Softube.

Never had a problem with saving presets in those plugins you supposedly are having a problem with. And I have a ****load of PA plugins from different developers who license their wares to PA. Some save presets within whatever daw or host you're working in. This is one of those where you have to pay attention to what's going on in the header of the plugin. For example one plugin that uses the daw/host for it's preset saving is the bx_limiter. If create a preset in PT for example Digital Performer won't see that preset. And vice versa.

Hi everyone,

I'm doing a research as part of my academic study about the Gear Acquisition Syndrome (GAS) and how it could impact our life and career as producers, engineers..etc. Please, if you don't mind participating in this quick questionnaire, check boxes only answers, will took only a minute to be done.

Here for the gear
 

I edited my posts to remove my error, overeaction, and stupidity.

After considering @ MarkR 's post and thinking things over, I can see that I misinterpreted PA support, overreacted, and was d*ckish. I apologized to them and now apologize to you guys. Thanks for the help!

Brilliant, mate!

I actually constructed a lengthy reply to your post yesterday and then thought no, I'll give you a chance to see what happens. Turns out you did exactly what I'd suggested in that message. Honestly, well done, man.

Thanks guys.

If they are saving their presets within the DAW then it is the DAW that is managing the presets and the plugin isn't really doing anything, right?
I mean every DAW has a preset manager that works for all plugins but not every plugin has its own preset saving capabilities. The Plugin Alliance plugins in question apparently do not have any built in preset saving capabilities and that is the issue (unless I am misunderstanding something about this conversation).

OK.. just tried the P.A. plugins in Reaper and indeed there is no problem with them. However this is not the case at all with Maschine as there isn't any header display. You can load the presets and it offers the chance to load up Init numbers but no indication if you use those as a starting point how to save your results. I'll do a call out on the NI forum to see if anyone has found a solution. It does seem a tad odd to me not to have the facility to save the presets within the plugin itself as most appear to do because that mantains the concept of portability. It kinda defeats the plug in concept if you use a plugin in any DAW but can't transfer those settings to another.

200 is steep for these other limiters but I'm willing to support the developers. 550 is a joke that makes me lose a little respect for Softube.
Yeah I totally see your point, but I'm pretty sure its the license fee from Weiss. Just look at the cost of the Buchla oscillator, $99, more than the cost of Softube modular itself. 1st ever licensed software by Buchala.

I know a guy called Streaky, a mastering engineer that used to work at metropolis in London, mastered ed Sheehan to Adele to skepta to tons of dnb people. I'll ask on his youtube channel if he'd compare the two things, because he has the hardware. Should be possible to get him to do it at some point.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSv...UURjGrdAJX_Yjg

Yeah, it's expensive to say most musicians, but even if its 90% there to the hardware its a pretty good deal to even a decent home ME. It's one of those $10,000 units...

Those Lexicon PCM verbs still have an SRP for $999...

I could just buy an actual Elsyisa hardware Mpressor, 500 rack, for pretty much that price and just keep the maximiser. So, it's not really an option for me either.

Volume 3 is out now, not on subs yet, includes Softube saturation, OTO Biscuit (which was excellent) and Parallels also, very cool. If it's the same price, thats an amazing offer Imo.

The upgrade price from Volume 2 is pretty good but not quite as much so if you have Parallels.

Portability of presets - that's a biggie for sure. The problem I mentioned earlier about non-portability between PT and DP is that PT uses it's own plugin format (aax) and DP uses either au or vst format. For some reason a number (all?) of PA's plugins don't share presets between plugin formats.

But he also got quite some heat because of his fixed angle pseudo 3D GUIs that can be a bit irritating to work with.


He also uses simple serial number activation.
Thanks for the heads up on this.....I'm rather liking it

I am really thinking about that Limiter 6 GE deal that was mentioned above.
I still don't really have a good master bus limiter that I trust on a wide variety of material.
Any thoughts on that one?

Take a look at Fabfilter Pro-L

BTW: I figured out that GE means Gentleman's Edition but what does that phrase mean? Is that some kind of code for 'with extra features'?

I think Fabien just wanted to avoid having to use the "Pro" tag, so came up with this as a bit of a laugh in its nod to the 19th Century.

Yes, it means extra features.
