Massive X.

Well, the sound anyway...stereo field is huge and spacious, effects are a step up from what we're used to having included in a software synth IMO, great-sounding oscillators and filters. I admit the only thing I've used my Virus for since MX landed is a controller keyboard (though I fully expect I'll be using the TI again once the new-toy obsession with MX wanes a bit).

Hopefully by the end of the year, we'll see the less-developed areas of MX being fleshed out as well as multiple good sound libraries becoming available.

Thanks for the reminder about Kush REDDI a few posts back, btw...had meant to check that out and forgot. I had the hardware version years ago, but if the plugin is convincing, it would be more convenient in some ways.

MGranularMB has way more to it than I thought--one can go many directions soundwise with it.

Leapwing Audio (all of them), bx_oberhausen, massive x (well, maybe v1.1 will), Liquidsonics Seventh Heaven! And still impressed on Rcomp, C6, some fabfilter, pa, uad and izotope stuff every time I use them. One can be excited by plugins that are around for many years.. I am :-)

Got to give a shout out to IK Multimedia Tape plugins. These are truly magnificent!

Fuse labs vcl-864U. It emulates a tube limiter but does great duty as a compressor and general vibe improver!

Finally got around to demoing it and bought it shortly after. Your observations are pretty much what I found myself thinking when using it on bass and vocals as well. It's interesting that, when I first dropped it onto a bass channel, the effect almost seemed subtle. But in the context of the mix, the extra articulation it brought to a busy bass line was very noticeable and the parts where I was digging in more just gained an extra measure of aggressiveness. That's exactly what I wanted - I'm not big on really obvious fuzzy distortion on a bass track, I just wanted a little extra "mojo" and this can do that. Good stuff.

UAD Ocean Way Studios. The most mind blowing room effect I've ever used. It takes time to grow on you, but when it does, it's the Savoy Truffle of rooms.

I've just bought TDR Nova GE - it's fantastic but not revolutionary if you have ProQ 3 or similar. I am using it a lot on a current mix project.

I bought the Treble and Bass distortion library by Tim Petherick for Nebula last night. Sounds pretty authentic so far if inflexible and a one trick pony. Tim P is my favourite plugin sound developer by a mile. And his stuff costs next to nothing (once you've bought Nebula).

At the cost of a massive cpu hit no?

Have you noticed if the GE version uses more CPU power than the free version when you're using its unique features?

Yes but I'm big on freezing tracks and stems as I use a lot of Acustica Audio stuff that's heavy on computer resources. It slows you down but gives you thinking time and reduces ear fatigue! If you want to mix quickly there's algo stuff that requires no freezing that still sounds great.
