I’ve been using C8 Pro since the beginning of the year and am happy with the mixing results I’ve been getting thus far. I deliberately decided to hold off from purchasing any third-party plugins to force myself to use/evaluate the ones that come with C8.
Lat night I noticed that iZotope is running a big sale on many of its products and was thinking about picking up their Music Production Bundle to augment the native C8 Pro plugins. But before I do that I thought I’d see if anyone had any opinions either way as to whether a suite like Ozone is really necessary, or just a fancy luxury.
Feel free to mention any other comparable software that you’ve been using – e.g. FabFilter – and either can’t live without or seldom ever use.
I realize I can d/l and demo the software (which I plan to do), but I’m just too much of a novice at this point to make this decision on my own.
