I think the very best idea is to pool your resources and make a bread and butter tool like an SSL or Neve strip. I dare say 'SSL' is still a hot word around town, and if you manage to show that you have a better working strip than Waves, without the WUP and whatnot, you'd have people flocking over to your side immediately. These strips comprise about 80% of my sessions, and with the awesome saturation/summing of Slate's new VCC and Nebula's Alex B consoles, a very very closely modeled channel strip plug-in (or even a set of them, based on different consoles) would be the perfect compliment.

People want to recreate the feel of mixing on consoles ITB. The channel strip plug-ins are a great way to unify all your basic functionality on the one screen.

Without a doubt I would hit a 'money' product like this before continuing on doing niche products that have a lot of underground cred, but won't necessarily sell a ton.

^ See, solid reasoning! So start making them licensing deals with SSL/API/Neve already

The great thing about strips is that they are something EVERYONE needs, and not only that, but that need will be emphasized as these console saturation plug-ins become more standardized. The idea of emulating the sound and function of an entire console ITB will be very real, and I couldn't think of anyone better to spearhead that than the people doing the best algorithmic modeling (IMO) in the industry today. If you're adventurous you could even make a deal with Slate and license their saturation to be built into your strip plug-ins. All-in-one solution, would be perfect!

Not sure why anyone would want to pay someone in advance for a plugin they have never even tried... That's probably one of the strangest things I've ever heard of. Especially, considering licenses will be readily available upon release.

Anyway... the price goes up on June 1st folks, so you have a whole month to decide.

You know, some people were already sold after watchin the video demos.

And believe it or not, if a trusted company that has proven to never disappoint with its releases, be it vintage emulation or custom designs, some people might drop the money even without having using it.

A Softube plug-in <$200, sounds like a no-brainer to me.

+1 here too, a HQ channel strip with nonlinear harmonic distortion based on popular consoles is the way to go.

Of course, a perfect emulation of Neve and API would be cool.

Can we stop using the term "no-brainer"? I cringe every time I see it now, it's so over used. Sounds like only someone without a brain would want one. heh

Sorry... OT.

Yeah - I thought the UAD MP was really really good, but not absolutely friggin' fantastic. I know it scored 50/50 in that shootout, but it didn't completely fool me. The Nebula version kills it, but I guess it's not a fair comparison really. Softube, I really think is one step ahead of the algorithm game though, I can see lots of stuff on the cards from them over the forthcoming years. I don't think a Vari MU or Sta Level is out of the question

However, it's 00:59, May 3rd. Bring on the Dynamite!

Softube ships Valley People Dyna-mite!

Hello,

Finally it's time for the release of the Softube Valley People Dyna-mite plug-in for native (VST/AU/RTAS)! Valley People Dyna-mite is available today at the Softube web shop and at authorized Softube dealers at an introductory price of $229, excl. VAT. The introductory offer will last throughout May and thereafter the price will be $279.

The Valley People Dyna-mite is a unique limiter/expander with options to do gating, ducking, keying and de-essing. For some, the Valley People Dyna-mite is a secret weapon, for others it's a hidden treasure just waiting to be discovered.

Nowadays, the Dyna-mite has a reputation not only as a problem solver but also as a unique dynamics processor and a creative tool that will really inspire to new sounds!

A fully functional 20 day demo can be downloaded from Softube.

Make sure to watch the Dyna-mite plug-in videos!
YouTube - SoftubeStudios's Channel

Enjoy!
Torsten

That's a good question. In fact, that should be the only text that comes up when you go to Avid.com

In a huge font, just three letters followed by a question mark, in the middle of an otherwise blank screen:

Anyway, back to the topic of this thread: I'm psyched and downloading now!

So I spent a mere 20 minutes with it and I'm all giddy.

First off, the GUI is badass. Classy, yet badass. Bladass. The 'quick quide' button is a welcome convenience for those of us who haven't used the real thing. And once again, Softube swoops in with presets that are actually useful. Reasonable starting points for sure, though I'm sure I'll know this plug inside & out by Tuesday.

This plug is mean & lean. I can get 340 instances running smooth on my 2008 Mac Pro 8-core in Logic 9. Not that anyone would EVER use anything remotely nearing that instance count in a real session, but as we know, CPU strain adds up. It's nice to know this one uses a petty 0.294% of my system resources.

And the sound... oh, MAN! I just loaded it onto a thick and beastly drum bus I've got going with the Abbey Road 60s drums, and this plug just spanks it into firm, bouncalicious putty.

Top f*ckin notch plug-in!

Nope, not at this time. But, as everythinglouder noted, the RTAS version is very CPU efficient!
