This post is about the value of plugin bundles of VST Effects and Instruments, specifically covering the newest bundle from Softube, makers of Console 1. There is a video overview and reasoning for getting this bundle or not.
After numerous offers to purchase this bundle, I was finally given a price that I didn't want to refuse (as I have in the past). You may or may not get as good a deal and certainly have your own value that you put on these kinds of plugin bundles.
These are some of the plugins that are included in the bundle - the ones that were most important to me and what swayed me. I have broken this list down a little differently than they are on the Softube website so that it is easier to evaluate:
Console 1 Ready:
American Class A (API)
Summit Audio Grand Channel (and the EQF-100 and TLA-100A parts)
Weiss EQ MP
Weiss MM-1 Mastering Maximizer
Drawmer S73 Intelligent Master Processor
Trident A-Range (EQ)
Passive-Active Pack (EQ)
Items that have tempted me before:
and the additions of the Marshall Plexi Super Lead
Marshall Cabinet Collection
Tape - in Studio One, this works as a MixFX processor
TSAR-1 Reverb (plus the smaller TSAR-1R)
Bonuses that make me smile:
Harmonics Analoag Saturation Processor
Fix Flanger, Fix phaser, Fix Doubler
I hope that this list makes it easier for you to look at and determine the value to you. Here's a link to the actual bundle on their website:
