It just keeps saying script failed and I can't see anything to change. The same thing has happened every time, so I probably don't have what it takes to be an Acoustica user.

My experience was similar. And when customer support was less than satisfactory over multiple exchanges, I also had enough and asked them to delete my account and moved on.

Obviously this has CPU performance on its side..

El Rey is meh. Pros: they nailed the stereo image. Cons: that weird bass bump, and like all acustica products it stills blurs your transients. I think it will have its place so I’m not selling it, though it wasn’t worth the price looking back.

MDE sounds crazy good. IMO it sounds amazing the less you push it. Try slow attack with D1 and just add the slightest compression on your master bus. Listen to how it adds a forward energy/movement.

MDE is really great! Been testing it for some time now and finally purchased it (got lucky and got it second hand). The way it brings groove to a track is amazing! Turning it off really shows how stiff a track sounded before. Turning it back on brings instant groove and vibe and bounce.
It really shines when doing less compression, just as many people said before.
I also sometimes like the Vertigo VSC-3 before, to give the track some smack.

Someone sold MDE? Maniac :¬)

VSC > MDE is nice indeed, I usually mix into that (with VSE).

Yeah, didn´t really think that would happen either.

Haven´t been playing around with VSE i must admit. Was blown away with VSC-3 but installed the demo of VSE, as for the price you have to take both.

Think you’re being a little bit flippant regarding El Rey. One of the biggest plus points of it is the girth it can add to individual sources which are on the thinner side. It rounds out jagged edges and adds fullness in a way that only analogue gear (and Acustica products to a slightly lesser extent) can achieve.

I never use El Rey on mixbus - don’t feel that is its strongest suit but on vocals and acoustic guitars - it definitely has magic which MDE wouldn’t be able to match (IMO). As a general rule I would say MDE was way more versatile on the mixbus.

Agree with this. Especially for vocals. Other options being ToTape6 and and Fuse VPRE-2C.

Is your video driver up to date? I'm not saying that's the problem, but I had a similar issue awhile back (not with this same VST or company) which was corrected by updating the driver. Just a thought.

On updating windows to a new XXxx version it sometimes installs the generic driver by Microsoft. I had to always revert back to my stable graphics driver and everything worked again. I'm currently on 1909 and AMD driver. Will check out vst3 later.

My drivers are AMD official drivers,no windows drivers (official ATI RADEON HD5450 driver) no other vst3 plugin in my system have this problem.
I dont know what happened.

Haven´t installed the VST3 version, so can´t comment about that one.

What a thread! does SPL Iron hold a candle to MDE ? I can have the first one for 17$ but maybe I should just go to plugin rehab.

I can't I'm away from the studio. I was about to just score Iron -one day sale only, but I do own MU and MDE needs to be demoed as it gets rave reviews, I'll probably pass on Iron.

Not in my opinion. Iron doesn't groove with the source like MDE does. And it doesn't handle harsh transients very well.

Iron for 17 usd is a good deal and it's a little bit different then MDE.

But when I had to decide between both I would Def choose MDE.

For me those are totally different as well. MDE is THE groove maker, while Iron is more for final polishing (sold it nevertheless, it's just to complicated to set it up, might be suited for Mastering).

Even though I have MDE I will probably get IRON since it's only costing me $15 even if I only use it as eye candy to impress friends and potential girlfriends when playing them my tracks. I do think it is probably one of the sexiest GUI's out there at the moment so I will buy it as an artwork.

Handling of the compressor and didnt bring me to another universe. I try to stay on a slim with my tools and only buy something when urgend slut need is involved. I decide with my ears and sometimes don't hear something totally better. And I avoid "having all", better to learn my tools which are already great.

But I need to admit that this plugin alliance thing last weekend got my unguarded. ...
