Anyone get any audioMIDI no-brainers lately?

Anyone get any audioMIDI no-brainers lately?

I bought...
Analog Trackbox on Thursday the 31st
BREVERB on Friday the 1st
XILS this morning (Monday the 4th).

I've yet to received any serial numbers yet on any of them. I emailed their support on Saturday, but haven't heard back yet. I do realize it's a holiday weekend, so maybe they are just behind and get to it early this week. But a number of weeks back I bought BlueVerb and had the serial# in approx. 5 hours.

Has anyone else bought some "no-brainer" plugs recently and had an unusually long time for them to send you your serial numbers?

usually it goes fast, but due to the success of certain no-brainer ops and the fact that they process everything "by hand" makes it sometimes last a bit longer. If you take in account limited staff problems due to the winter holidays, you're still on the bright side of things. Normally it shouldn't take more than four workdays (as stated on the website).
They're a honnest company, you'll get your serial numbers soon.

Thanks for the encouragement.

It is true that if I go by the 4-day thing, then technically, none of them is really behind schedule. The Analog Trackbox should show up today, and the rest can trickle in over the course of the week and not be "late".

Just eager to get up and running, especially to mess around with XILS and BREVERB.

Thanks again for the post.

XILS is the BOMB!! one of the best soft-synths i've ever heard, it sounds so incredibly naturl and warm. You'll have a lot of fun with that!

I was watching some videos on YouTube of it, and if it turns out half as cool as I think it is, and if it turns out to be an inspiring tool, I can already see myself dropping the $99 for the upgrade to the full version.

I bought:
- Breverb audioMidi for $4.99
- Analog TrackBox for $15
Not that these are bad in any way, but I really don't need (or use) a third channel strip (I have Channel-G and Waves SSL and a ****load of UAD plugins already) nor does Breverb do anything that my goto-reverb CSR doesn't do already.

I've learned my lesson: Spend more money on burgers and less on redundant plugins.

My gearlust can't resist a bargain I guess. I don't own any channelstrip plug at all though, so maybe I'lll find some usage for Trackbox. Also don't own CSR, so maybe I'll get some good usage out of BREVERB.

Then these two are for you! I could imagine doing whole mixes just with Trackbox and Breverb audioMIDI if I had to.

Just got the serial for XILS, then 15 minutes later got the serial for BREVERB. Have yet to get the serial though for Analog Trackbox, the one I bought last Thursday. they must be working backwards, finishing the most recent orders first.

EDIT: Just got 'em all. Can't wait to get home to get my new plugs running!

Got them all... yeah, even the Nomads and Mutator.

$90 for 7 plug-ins is a great deal!

It kinda reminds me of collecting Hot Wheels...

Yeah, I'm tempted to pick this up. I'm a sucker for cheap guitar plugins.
I already have Waves GTR3 (great for heavy rock rhythm guitars), and Pod Farm (the $99 one they gave away free a few months back, which has a lot of good lead guitar tones). But it can never hurt to have even more amp sounds, especially for $15. And these amp sims tend to sound their best when you stack different ones up and layer them. They fill in for each other and hide some of their inherent weaknesses.
