Tried, yes. Was about as impressed as the earlier version. ("Meh...")

In moderation if at all with that one... Well, with any of them. The thing that gets me with those things are that they put "ultimate "MASTERING" tool" or what not on them - Then they put in a bunch of stuff that mastering engineers never use.

Fairchild 670's? Sure - Back in 1975. They were wonderful compressors - for vinyl.

Optical compressors? Reasonably nice for parallel work - Not something you'll find too many people running a mix through though.

Pultec? I have a weak spot for Pultec EQ's - This one isn't a Pultec. UAD's Pultec - That'll fool most of the people most of the time (IMO, probably the most accurate emulation of any type of all time). I have it and I'm not afraid to use it - That said, I might use it only several times a year.

Then you've got Izotope with their multi-band-everything (and no matter what their marketing department says - and I respect Izotope, BTW, MBC isn't nearly as "Used By Professional Mastering Engineers!" as they might lead some people to believe).

I don't mean to go into 'rant mode' - But there's so much out there that's far too invasive for "typical" use (although any of them can "hype" the hell out of anything in a single-click, which is exactly what I think they're shooting for).

I'd stick with most native plugs first.

Yep, in all honesty it is not worth the money they charge for the stuff.

And yes, I've spent more then my share on huge bundles that I might only use one DSP processor out of the lot.
