Says it all! 80+456 is my mixbus favourite also.

Interest piqued Will!

Dammit .... You guys enabled me to buy the IK tape collection! I demoed it before and really liked it, but thought I could live without it. But after seeing these comments and then going to the IK thread and reading comments there, I wanted to try it more and ended up just purchasing it. I am a true slut.

My understanding is that the Ik tapes can distort, compress... Just like a tape. Taupe is limited in this regard, but you have lots of frequency/phase profiles to play with !

No, I don't have Taupe, but I've trialed it a couple times. I like it. I chose the IK Tape though because they use a mixture of convolution and programming to make things more tweakable, and it will compress and saturate when pushed. So it's just a bit more flexible than Taupe. It can bring lots of vibe to the table and allow you to really dial in the sound. It doesn't sound "plastic" or "cartoony" in comparison to other tape emulations too, if you ask me. Taupe doesn't sound plasticy or cartoonish either, though.

I wouldn't mind getting Taupe at some point too to combine them. They're both great for different scenarios imo.

I see use case for both. IK for transient heavy material e.g. 808 drums - Taupe most of its presets can't handle it because of the laser artifacts. On other material with soft transients Taupe gives you more options in terms of texture, but you cannot push it as hard as IK.
Both have comparable quality though which is amazing.

Thanks Heaven! It's mostly dislike but no laziness on my behalf... I actually attempted to 'renew' my FB account (temporarily) to view the video, but for security purposes had to have a code sent to my phone, which of course is a 10-year old number that hasn't been used in ages.

So I figured I'd create a 'band' page for my music project... which requires my main account, which I can't access. Just as well, I guess.

Thanks for keeping us non-FBers in the loop AH.

I dithered for some time on what I was going to purchase and figured I better pull the trigger before it expires.

Just bought Ruby2 and Crimson for $125. Which is insane. AA basically said here, have $25 off Crimson, and we'll throw in Ruby for *free*.

My dithering was over N4. I'll probably regret it later. But... still have to buy Gullfoss in the next day before the $99 beta price expires. First world problems.

Ruby2 + Crimson for $125. Insane.

As mentioned in the Nebula thread -- plan your purchases.

Don't be like me and decide to go back and purchase Nebula4 or another Acqua -- one time use per user.

I'm still in shock over stealing Ruby2 for €70/$80, so missing out on N4 doesn't bother me a bit.

I was an idiot and didn't put Coral2 in the bundle .... It would've been so inexpensive. I just jumped at the fact that the coupons were limited and quickly scooped up Ruby. Oh well .... I'm happy.

I didnt realise it was one coupon per user - bought the crimson for great price - went for the N4 after only to realise its one coupon per user

If your buying MAKE SURE you add everything you really need - super price 70 per cent off

Does anyone know the details on the 1.4.279 update that was in Aquarius? Coral2 and Honey3 both got bumped with minor updates.

Cola (most recent Acqua) is at 1.4.278. I shouldn't obsess over these things but if I'm not recording I need something to pass the time after I walk the dog.
