Bought it yesterday while it was on offer and took it for a quick spin.

Very impressed so far.

I wasn't arguing whether the price is right or wrong. I only said that it is not surprising. PA, Softube and UAD have such prices. Others of course don't. For the record though I think that even they start to reduce their prices. Even if it is through sales and coupons.

A) Hardware doesn't mean better than software by definition.
B) Mass production techniques have evolved and cheap hardware is possible. I don't know if this impacts quality though.

The curve bender is great. I love it already. Love the look and more important the sound.

Will give the zener a spin the next days.
Sad that there is no upgrade path to the germanium comp.

I completely understand the frustration at the pricing policies of Softube, PA, etc... however The Curve Bender at $139 (with code) this weekend is a complete no-brainer, just the box tone alone is worth the price of admission. This also opens up a $149 upgrade path to the Zener and the full suite, these prices for these two plugins standalone is really nothing to throw a tantrum about considering the quality of these tools! Plus you get the ability to use them in a single instance AND the C1 version. We all know the game with these companies is to wait for the sale, lurk here on the boards until word gets around... once I demoed the EQ there was no way I couldn't grab the Curve Bender at that price.

Demoing the Curve Bender now, but was it really $99 recently? Or was that only if you owned the Tube Tech?

Yeah I think you're right. So it's the best value to get onboard for non TT customers.
