I did not have the time to run some tests myself but I really wonder how the new plugins compare to the 3rd party alternatives many of us probably own.
I will list those I can think of and would love to hear your thoughts and additions on and to that!
1.) Spectralaysers One VS RX8 I have RX8 and it is really good but since it costs more than Cubase I wonder how features such as vocal isolation compare… As soon as I find the time to update, I’ll share my test results here!
2.) Frequency 2 VS ProQ3 and other Dyn-EQs I would assume it’s not as fancy as fabfilter but probably similarly powerful (except for having less bands)
3.) Imager VS Ozone Imager/bx_stereomaker
4.) Squasher VS ? the most similar plugin I use, is probably the Oxford Inflator, I heard the comparison to the OTT, yet have never used this one!
Looking forward to hearing what you guys think!
