Sonnox Essential
The installation is done it without problems?

Is the cross and banner for the installation, you must register on the site Ilok, if not already doing, and take the steps to follow, very very long for my taste.

The general configuration is easy?

Yes really, if you have ever used a compressor / gate / limiter!

Have you experienced any incompatibilities?

No no, the plugins are compatible with ALL formats (VST / RTAS / AU)


What is the configuration of your computer?

Mac Pro dual core 2.66GHz 8 GB RAM + Leopard + HDD 10000trs for Macosx and MOTU 24io on LOGIC PRO 9

This software + hardware is stable?

Yes quite, but the plugins are pretty greedy

What performance?

I'm not the best, but it will come, but it manages the dynamics of "A to Z".


For how long have you been using it?

3 weeks

Did you try many other models before getting this one?

Yes, and still use today, SSL, and neve at DSU, they are all very different, and works on everything, but I wanted plugins very surgical, and stay music, and it the case.

What thing do you like most/least about it?

It is a true Swiss Army knife, very comprehensive (Dynamic / EQ / Goddess / Reverb ...), plenty to do

What is your opinion about the value for the price?

This is the black point of the beast, paid dearly, and we did not have the right to a DVD and a proper packaging, I had right of the license on a piece of paper, and Sort this out to me for download on the site, RIDICULOUS! I had this impression of being a cash cow, because in addition to that, you have to buy a key Ilok !!!!!! These are honest people who pay their license toast, as always !!!!!

Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ...

Yes, despite the black point quoted above, but in the Powercore version, which I intend to do soon, to use the resources of the mac for Logic.

Quality level, they are incredible, do not hesitate!, It goes very well with the duende and uad
