From the Instagram comments, release on 29th May. No news about price or presale discount...but I already received my personal discount for Cobalt!

In a few days it's my birthday, so this time the excuse to tell my girlfriend is easy. Nice timing! :)

This is strangely quiet for what I think is going to be an amazing piece of plugin. I can already hear the stereo movement I´m going to create with this....damn, release it now!

Yes there is and odd acoustic stress i am reliving during the gold depolyment. It creates a hype i conjure.
ALbeit i consdier all emotion pain.I do get wary when the blood warm and one thinks, I want it now, and must buy it second it comes out.
If it is was a woman we were discussing id say one need pull back.
sadly it may be one of my last AA's i will get, Albeit i hope not, but i do plead for that 20% of presale as i would benefit deeply from it.
ALas the days when m pockets were endless and boundless seem to have a ornery and caustic clock gyved to them.
It woudln't be too much to ask what other tings will be put out this summer so I had an idea what if i get this id be passng off if i didnt. As, eh, lke iif the next new devise was a Cur*E Bender....or a smilar masering eq used on DSM OR even the console, id wait if i knew....anyway...
Albeit its like asking for a secret recipe.
Albeit I am excited and anticipative and oddly wobbling. (wobbles); See?

yes we can provide first details about it

- it will be released tomorrow
- full price is 179 eur, on it we'll apply the usual 20% preorder discount
- they are 4 plugins: a tube equalizer, a tube compressor, a tube preamp and a "remix" plug-in.
- basically first 3 plugins are a clone of original hardware units created by Luca Xelius Martegani. You'll know about them in our very ultra detailed user manual. I think it is one of the best user manuals ever created by us. It is very rich of details.
- remix plug-in is a sort of super-plugin created "remixing" the other 3 and adding features. Who remixed it? giancarlo AND sounddrops (so the same guy who sampled pearl, amethyst, honey, who created ochre, scarlet, emerald, coral, pink sidechain filters)


Here my thoughts about the product

- the equalizer alone is possibly one of the most interesting one we have in our catalog, the high band is very unique and impressive. I think it is the best pultec-derived plugin ever created (we are not affiliated with pultec)
- the compressor alone (derived from an altec design, no endorsement and we are not affiliated with them) is one of the best ones
- the remix plugin IS the best tool we have ever created. Basically we (sounddrops and me) extended the compressor, and it IS the best tube compressor around. It's better than ANY software, and possibly better then most of hardware tube compressors around
- the dynamic eq functionality (a consequence of CoreX) is impressive. This is the first dynamic eq plugin derived from analog hardware, so the first analog modeled dynamic equalizer.
- the remix plug-in allocates a WHOLE equalizer on the sidechain path. So no more complains about the flexibility of the compressor
- the remix plug-in features an equalizer with mids attenuation!! this detail makes the eq alone WAY more flexible then all pultec-based equalizers (no affiliation with pultec)
- sounddrops created a PWM compressor named mantis, and it is alone the BEST compressor we have. You have its ratio setting in remix plugin

Honest question, why do you feel the remix compressor is the best around? Usually when you make such statements in the past you are correct so Im sincerely curious. There are so many tube compressor flavors from the LA2* to the Atomic Sque***box.
