Hi I'm faze and I'm a plug-ln whore. I think I should go to a meeting for 90 days . My latest purchase is Modo bass and Exponential Audio's R 4.  I'm lovin Modobass and need time to figure out all the controls on R4.

Anyone else need to go to a meeting?

The best cure is a legacy system  ;)
.. a lot of companies won't even sell you their older RTAS/TDM plugs!!

On the other hand, my hardware acquisition has grown beyond my available rack space  :-X  :-X  :-X

I did just jump into the UAD platform, so there's that too now hahah

UAD has some great plug ins.   It's hard when they run their specials.  Just say no.  I have a phrase I've used for years. 

"Real Engineers don't need reverb".

I guess I'm not a real engineer.  I just bought R4.  😀🎶

I have several UAD plugins but I often don't go to them because sometimes I need to work on different computers, but I really like the EMT plate reverb.  I have really been loving the Fabfilter stuff.  I really like the compressor and the limiter (and the Simplon filter....and the Saturn distortion...and...!!)

I would regard plugins as a very nice way of marketing...:

I found that the number of plugins was inversely related to productivity, for me at least.

Scaling back to a select few in each category can be quite liberating. Plus less scrolling through menus and more time for DIY :)

That, is quotable.

So I quoted it. Words of wisdom. To rephrase bluntly, don't get caught up in playing with the toys, concentrate on the mix.

One thing that I recently did that I'm so happy about is I went through all my plugins and categorized them in my DAW so instead of looking by name I just go to "compressors" or "distortion".  It's really helped me start to look at more of the plug ins that I never get around to trying and I have been having a great time discovering plugins that I have had for years.

Folks, try Harrison Mixbus DAW, no need for other plugins than for special effects ;)
