Is RX8 (finaly) backwards compatible?
Or do we still need to keep RX5, RX6 & RX7 on our systems?

This is interesting. I have long said that Acon products are spectacular and some of the most reasonably priced on the market, yet i have not tried their restoration plugs.

I too bought into the Izotope eco system, thinking that it would be a good modern mixing workflow (plugins communicate etc)
But have found i get better results, with less CPU consumtion just using individual plugins.

I am interested in finding out if any of the alternatives are better than RX. The new one dropped, and whilst the guitar tools seem really cool, the rest of the update is meh.
Also i agree that having a new plugin each time that doesn't load the old sessions is really very annoying.

The other one that looks interesting to me is the steinberg 'spectra layers' (i think thats what it is called)
That looks like great software.
In fact, that even got me thinking about just getting wavelabs and mastering in that.

Main uses for me are treating vocals and acoustic recordings, along with finalizing a project.
Anyone have experience with all three...RX, Acon restoration and Spectra layers?

I'm a big fan of the Acon stuff too.
You should check these guys out too.
