Thanks for your feedback
Is there an awesome LA3A plug-in that is not UAD?
Probably definitely grab the EQP1A.

The Apogee EQPs, officially approved by Pulse, made me sell my two Warm Audio Pultecs straight away. The software sounded so much better. You will find a shooutout made by Sweetwater (on their website) with tons of hardware and sw Pultecs in comparison, a very nice PT session in 96K, so that you really can compare. I find that the Apogees stand out very well.
The LA3A is also very nice, just not that outstanding, I feel.
To you second question. No, I am not planning to sell mine.. :-)

The LA3A in Overloud's LA (includes an LA2A emulation) is very good.

Product webpage: https://overloud.com/products/comp-la

a current GS thread: Overloud - COMP LA Opto Compressor - 2A and 3A version in one plugin!

Outside the world of Nebula / AA anyway (which I am not plugged into and so cannot comment), the Apogee and Overloud seem to be at the top of the LA3A heap currently.


As far as EQP1-A's, I haven't given the Apogee version a thorough try yet, but the Noiseash is very good!

I give it a try, but I prefer the Analog obsession Rare EQ, which is Free.

Are Apogee ever going to make their plugins available to Windows users? Their new Clearmountain's Domain plugin has been promised for around the second week in November for a Windows version but how about their other native plugins?

In Oct. 2018 Dual Path was supposed to be released in a month - then January - then March 2019 - then they stopped saying - its now a year later. Just saying...

Is there no one at the show to ask about this??? They won't answer emails I send or posts I write here or on their Facebook page for 6 months now...

Try going to the AES forum part of the website here on GS on the Clearmountain's Domain thread and ask there as I think they have been posting messages there maybe.

I did post there in response to another posters expectation of a Windows version of the new plugin being available in a month. I told the story of how the Dual Path was said to be coming many times since Oct 2018. I prefer to let threads stay on point. (PS - as I look now for that post it is not there - maybe I stepped on a few toes already - I try to keep my negative comments factual - not abusive - at least - so I think :-)

PS - I am deeply saddened by Apogee abandoning all efforts on communicating to the community (the two or three of us that is) that are waiting for them to release the product they advertise (all year) as released.

I think I will post every few days the same thing on this thread just so anyone who is interested might see and be warned of this deception.

I chatted with Apogee on their website today. No dates for release could be had. I heard that it is a "Top Priority" and the phrase by "the end of the year" came up. I voiced my concerns (like I have here) about advertising an unreleased feature as released and they were understood.

Their Tech Support people are always great. I asked that all my concerns be sent to someone who could do something about at least communicating what the real deal is.

Make of all this what you will. I have zero expectation that communication will improve or that an end of the year release is going to happen. We shall see...

It is encouraging (IMO) to see Apogee giving an update on Dual Path :-). A fairly clean 3rd Beta (hopefully close to a release candidate) would be an excellent thing. I wonder what OS this will be for - Mojave 10.14.5, 6? Catalina?

Here for the gear
 

Greetings. Been running DualPath Beta Release 3 for about two days now. No major problems to speak of. Nice and stable and the plugs sound great.

Is there work to be done? Yes.

But this release makes me confident that Apogee is gonna see this through.

I must be missing something. If it’s nice and stable and sounds great, what work is there to be done?

  • low level sound glitches when spawning a new rack. Nothing like the blasts from previous releases but still unacceptable.
  • Some issues with FX Rack / Apogee Control interaction.
  • Some issues with DuelPath (FX Rack / Pro Tools interaction.)
  • "Print to tape" missing.

For the record: ProTools 2019.6, Ensemble Thunderbolt.

I hardly used Beta 2 but I never uninstalled it either. Beta 3 will see some use. One channel at a time.

I believe print to tape is done by placing the plugin on the apogee console but not on the channel in your DAW. The documentation wasn’t clear on this, but that’s my memory of it. Not at my computer so I can’t test it out before posting...

Finally happy to say that so far in light work and some stress testing on Beta 3 that gave Betas 1+2 problems - no issues so far :-). I don't love "Logic" but the Apogee/Logic workflow is so good I am hard pressed to use other DAWs today...

PS - here is a link for Beta3 (mods or Apogee let me know if this is not allowed)

Yep, it's been working great here too - the workflow is pretty amazing and so smartly integrated. Has nice advantages over my HDX system when working solo.

Does anyone know if Beta 3 has multi-unit support?
