...and I on the other side don't really case how it looks. I just hope it will sound better than V1

I'll say it again everyone :D :

There is no new color for Amber2, Silk EQ2, EQP1v2 and I'm guessing there is no new color for Green2, so I don't get why someone would change the color for Magenta. It looks beautiful as it is! :)

green now is green (before it was black). Amber2 was modified too (even quite a bit). Murano was changed too (a revolution even in the gui!). And so Magenta.

We LOVE to create a new gui for an important update! it is something you cannot do easily in the hardware realm.

well not only good shoes come from italian...

i like my MarkBass Little Mark III Bass-Amp 8-) And of course the AA-plugins for their sound.

Beside and just my opinion: The gui-look is for most people a "nice to have". Sound is almost more relevant than a nice gui. But of course a nice peace of old big hardware looks better than harmless D*x compressors.

But i must really say that the photo realistic look of the AA products is something i like also... nice to have it. And i like the vintage look... as it seemed it was in use...

Can you give us an estimate on how much the CPU saving will be maybe?

Hi Himhui.

Thanks for asnwering this :)

I'm not sure if I completely understand this however:

What do you exactly mean per instance?

And how much will it be if I jsut use Magenta I on my stereo bus vs Magenta II ?

in his particular case, it is 300% faster. Keep in mind himhui has a pretty medium/slow computer, you could gain even more on a modern cpu.
