You should definitely check out the Martinic freebies - they are actually better than what VB3 v1 had.
Yes, those are both great. Thanks!
(And they both have what I wish the VB3 would have too: the option to detune notes.)

Re: Genuine Software / VB3 II

Bought it. 2 hours ago. And I agree: tone-wise, it hasn't lost anything of what made v1 so special. Terrific update.
(And the AU is a different one than the VB3 v1, which means I can still load up the previous version too in case I want the Farfisa or the Vox models.)

Re: 50% off all Kush Audio

It's "up to 50%", so not everything is at half price.
But even so: another great 7-day opportunity to get some really good plug-ins.

Re: The VSL Synchron Player for Synchron Strings is available.

Well, I would never buy the Synchron Strings again, Sculp. Jamais plus . Nor recommend them. Too many bad-sounding samples in important places, for starters, I find. The high-velocity layers of the longs and legatos, for example, come, as far as I’m concerned anyway, into the category ‘kirkhunterish...

Re: Zynaptic / "Intensity" (detail, clarity, density, loudness)

What's the point of volume compensation when evaluating a plugin that is specifically designed, in part, to increase the perceived volume? Absurd, no?
Also, the apparent volume gain is only half, if that, of what Intensity is all about, I would have thought the above videos illustrate.

Re: Zynaptic / "Intensity" (detail, clarity, density, loudness)

For me this is a sort of Clariphoniflator Deluxe. Enhancing not just the highs of a track/mix, but addressing the entire frequency spectrum if you so desire, or any chosen range(s) in that spectrum.
