Indeed, that's the route I ended up taking, Doom.

Kudos and thanks again to Audified for looking after me.

Absolutely! You will not be looking back after hearing the quality of new sims and getting used to all those extra features.

Not able to install any audio stuff yet, but judging by all the comments and reviews I've read, the answer's yes, it's definitely worth the upgrade.

Yes me too-apart from the many additional features the models that correspond to the same buttons in the original version sound more realistic and somehow more "extreme" which means it is harder to make your mix sound good on them. I also liked how different each button sounds which again means there is no hiding place for any flaws in your mix.

If I just use my main speakers and headphones many versions of the same mix will sound pleasing to the ear-it doesn't matter if there's a bit too much bass or top for example. But only a perfectly-balanced mix will "survive" all of this plug-in's emulations, such as the reference mixes I use from the best mixers in the world!

Of course the previous version was already pretty good at this but this version steps it up quite a bit.

How does MixChecker Pro work properly if there is no way to let it know what I'm listening on? I'm mixing on Focal headphones mostly, but I'm guessing they just set a standard compensation of a 5" monitor.

I don't think they're designed to turn one set of speakers or headphones into another-for this they would indeed need to have a calibration file for your particular set.

The way I understand it is that we are presented with a wide variety of worst-case scenarios that your mix needs to survive. For this it doesn't matter so much if the models are accurate, only that they sound convincingly horrible which to my ears they certainly do!

Just today I was referencing some Paramore mixes through the plug-in and they held up really well whichever button I pressed. Until my own work-in-progress shows the same kind of resilience I know I need to keep on mixing!

I use Sonarworks Reference + MCP in combination.

$65 at Plugin Boutique until 3 Dec. The standard version is $35. Was never going to buy MixChecker at full price but this is more in my price range. The pro is almost double the standard price. Do the extra features justify the price difference?

I bought the upgrade a while ago now and must admit that I haven't used any of the new features nor extra emulations. There just isn't enough time to tinker with so many variables!

But to me the new versions of the original buttons sound much better(or should I say worse?) than the originals so I would still go for the Pro version at that price. If there are demos of both maybe do a quick A/B with some real-life mixes.

Agreed. The updated algorithms are where the price difference is justified.

I agree, Doom.

I'm super-sensitive to phase issues, and judging from the demos I've heard of both plugins, the comb filtering / phase cancellation is greatly-reduced in the Pro version... IMHO.

just testing it on headphones (beyerdynamic 880 edition) with sonarworks at the end of the chain. sounds very much like 2 hours ago when I played the track in the club.

For $44 totally worth it.

i was peeping always a little bit to this plugin in mind i wouldnt need to EXTRA hear my mixes on a phone, car etc. but at the end arent these only some EQ presets + maybe some saturators and so on?

i got already SPEAKERphone and it seems to do the same even more (which i bought for effecting and simulating situations and sound design).

watched a few videos about it and it doesnt seem to be reliable too, the presets are not the same volume and the simulated presets arent also the best simulations which they wanna be, like faked sound . hard to describe, what do you say, waste of money? especially for normal price, ridiculous. i dont mean the blackfriday price! (how long does the sale last?)

i guess sticking to comparing to phones, cheap ass speakers etc. is better and cheaper than this plugin.

@ b0se I would also be grateful to know whether this would still be relevant if I plump for Slate VSX this Xmas.

Cheers.

Slate ripped off these ideas (including Waves Nx) so, no. If you get VSX then this would be redundant. But cheaper!

I ended up never using it, so I can't personally recommend it. I didn't use any software of this kind however, not just this specific plugin.

All of it sounds like stuff I'd buy on a whim and never use IMO.

OT but any idea when those DSP monitors you are involved in testing are hitting the market place? This year? I understand if you are unable to say.

Cheers.
