    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    OVERALL OPINION

    Used 2 years in studio mockup.
    The reverb is not as hot as the Creamware reverb, but both compltent well.
    The mastering presets are real "killers" just for a bang for the buck! Forget T-Racks!
    The quality is below the plugs vidememnt card (DSP Powercore, Creamware, UAD ...), but even when we are in the top of the native algorithms ct.
    The rglages are less numerous than the plugs on the TC Native Bundle: we must justify the price diffrence! But we paramtres Access in essential, as there are fewer buttons, it works faster.
    This made me prfrer the native bundle, plus the routing matrix: we do take as many plugs you want in a slot VST, and remember everything in one click any software or new project: a time-saving offers incredible!
