Plug-in Bundles for HD2 Accel and Waves Upgrade prices
     #1150604 - 02/05/07 11:25 AM   Edit     Reply     Quote    





Funny, but Waves requires me that I pay U$1600 to upgrade my TDM Bundle II to go Accel/MAc Pro compatibility. It cost +-U$1200.

They just stopped selling the TDM Bundle II product and force me to go GOLD, which I do not need.

However, the Native versions are much cheaper. So, or we change brands (Mc DSP, etc) or go Native with Waves.
They have a Musicians Bundle II that is very similar to the old TDM II.


I have an eye at MC DSP Emerald Pack Native and also was thinking of an URS bundle.

so:
a)Is anyone else doing this, going native, as computer power is not more an issue with a MAc Pro?
( Iguess Waves native is RTAS and VST, right)?

b)Which URS bundle would you recommend me, having the basic but good compressors and EQ models?

c)TC MD3 seems to be a great product. Or should I stay with the limiter of MC DSP Emerald Pack?

Thanks

don't know if this helps.....but....

the mac pro can handle just about anything you throw at it.  native card or DSP, it won't matter.  however....if you want the automatic latency compensation to work in PT, you must use TDM plugs, not native cards.
