I just pulled the trigger on SL 7, I was waiting for the Black Friday sale.
I tested it few months back and asked many questions here, that were all answered in a blink of an eye by the support team, and of course like everybody was trying to understand who was the best between SL 7 and Izotope RX. Which is not fair as fundamentally the approach is different, and both soft have different history, philosophy and goal.
At the end of the day, I trust SL & Steinberg, the seamless integration in Cubase is priceless and I am sure SL being part of the Steinberg family we can expect a way more aggressive roadmap that will make SL way better at what RX does, and more. The SL angle to give more control and of course the visualisation aspect gives foundations to go beyond audio repair and ne more creative.
Long story short, Bravo Robin ! Your “baby” is killer & will beat the competition hands down soon, if it’s not the case already.
Have a great day!
