I dont hear any difference between left and right channels and dont see it using analyzers
mix: no, because they are insert channels
bus: yes, both a and b. We carefully tuned levels.

If something is wrong or overseen obviously we'll check it. I already told francesco and enrique about it.

Echo bug confirmed again. Sand has the same issues as the original pink channel strip. As soon as you engage all the eq's filters you automatically hear the echo bug again... I tested it with a basic 909 kick. Whats going on here guys, i thought we conquered this hurdle already?

echo bug will be improved asap. To be honest it was not raised from betatesters, but there is an huge space for improvement on that side. Still the plug would be backward compatible

Confirmed: the bus is mono for a mistake.
We'll fix it and the echo bug at the same time

Thank you for this! Sand really sounds incredible. It took a little while to get the hang of it. I just put it on the mix bus in a session with very few plugins on individual tracks and started to mess around. Some eq tweaks, preamp engaged, filtering out some lows and 3-4db of reduction with compressor. When bypassed the mix fall apart, when turned on instant happiness! :D

Can't wait to hear this! Once the bus pre in stereo and the echo bug are fixed I'm going to get this into a mix right away.

The sound and the compression behavior is really outstanding. You can make Hits with Sand, really! Well done, AA! Echo bug fix and we are in heaven. :D

I should just give AA my credit card info and have them automatically charge it when a new release comes out to save me the trouble. I don't even have to think about it anymore!

as put earlier by some, just letting audio pass through makes it a polished release already, i'm thrown away, this is what i'd expect from all the hype,

you guys just nailed true analog itb!

it lives! and as you said G, it can't go wrong, i've been spending an hour with a mix and you can mix into this with easy, it truly reveals your panorama without choking it, perfect glue!

just crazy! :mrgreen:

Wow - 1.2 GB download for mac. This thing is damn hefty - I like that! :lol:

Just FYI, I'm not seeing the manual in the download section within the trial... Maybe I'm just overlooking it.
