I decided to check out SoundToys and a couple domino falls later I landed here because they don't have video or audio examples that I could find on their site. Darned if you didn't just cost me $499 for their entire suite of products. Between the way the plug-ins work and the wonderful clear explanation, I'm really sold. I'm not sure if I want each and every thing on their site, but there's enough to justify going all in. Wonderful audio examples and demos of what you can do with this stuff. Great products and a great presentation is a truly wonderful thing together. You helped me see that these products work the way I think, and that they sound awesome. I can't thank you enough.
