The first thing I put Berzerk on was ABL3. Holy moly :D

I still hate Waves from the bottom of my heart but it's a really cool plugin. I have no idea what I'm doing but it sounds absolutely great on ABL3 (thanks for the tip, joey!) and I'm less sad now about not owning the ForgottenClank Waveshaper.

What do you think of this? Seems like a very good deal, but I have never heard of this company

Here's a reddit thread with plenty of comments discussing that offer, I hope it gives you some insight :)

So, Waves' Berzerk was installed to "C:\Program Files\VSTPlugIns" without even asking for a folder. The sketchy part? That folder was automatically added to the locations Reason is looking for VST plugins :shock:

Pretty sure that's \Steinberg\VSTplugins
Also, that folder didn't exist before.

Point of the matter is, it was added to the locations Reason scans. It wasn't there before.

I think that that is the vst3 folder. Go to the Steinberg for and there will be the vst 2 for it as well.

No, C:\Program Files\VSTPlugIns was created today (by the Waves Central) - it didn't exist before. I checked the date. It only contains "WaveShell2-VST 11.0_x64.dll". And that folder was added to Reason's search locations automatically.

Edit: So what's the matter? I don't think a third party plugin or its installer should be able to alter its host.

Avanger for around 95 bucks, since nobody mentioned it: https://www.pluginboutique.com/product/ ... nger-Synth

But i guess most interested ppl got it already due to the sale this summer.

I pretty good synth, good sound, good fx, good posibilities, good patches. Sometimes just not that traight forward, as it could be.
AVENGER is super powerful and fast becoming one of my main synths.

Recommend that you get the Producertech "Producer's Guide To Avenger" which is 3 hours of intricate explanation on every element in that synth. It's super cheap in the BF sale (£5.98) and don't think you already know everything... I can guarantee the tutorial will pay for itself in the depth of knowledge you gain from it.

One of the reasons I need a new computer is the fact my laptop is locked to windows 8. Tech at Fry's electronics couldn't even upgrade it to v10 with a full wipeout of the HD. The point is I can't even use Berzerk because it's windows 10 and up.

That Waves free BF plugin is a cool distortion plugin called Berzerk. Get it here: https://www.waves.com/lpn/black-friday-2019/free-plugin
Haven't gotten mine yet, but looking forward to it!

I did the pre-submission and did the one today for good measure. Says it can take up to 4 hours.

The interface looks like it's inspired by the Make Noise devices.

Try another technician, you can do a clean Windows 10 install in any computer you want.
For some time you could also upgrade for free to Win 10 but that ship has sailed...

Please avoid Windows 8! :puf_smile:

Ended up blowing my Black Friday load on 2 Softube ones. Harmonics and Monoment. Softube sucked me in with the $100 dollar off deal on Harmonics. I loved it before, but couldn't quite love it enough for the full price.

Monoment, is actually really cool! It's not meant to be Serum or a Massive Monster, but once in the mix, You'll understand. It just fits, and I also have three unfinished songs using it, so there's that

The Synapse RE bundle was very tempting, however I have very overlapping Synth's / Compressors / EQ's / Filters (I'd still like to have it tho)

Too many other options as well -- all boils down to taste

Don't forget the fx in the Synapse bundle. They are very good. Not as tweakable as many, but sound great.

Thorn for 50, if you are looking for a great synth, good patches and warm sound character. If you have a voucher, it's cheaper too.
https://www.plugin-alliance.com/en/prod ... thorn.html
Downloaded the demo, those sounds are great. Easy to work with. Spectral like Europa, but it sounds crisp and lively, not muffled or metallic like Europa. It has nice VA filters too and great FX. Had a coupon and, sold... for $25 bucks! That is a steal, just for the patches, lol.

Thanks for the remainder - this is the only synth for me this BF, and I DO NOT NEED ANY MORE!!!! (Have to remind my self, ha ha!) :shock:
10% off at Waves with link: https://www.waves.com/r/6gh2b0
Disclaimer - I get 10% as well.

I concur Loque, I really do. The Synapse bundle was extraordinary! Sometimes ya just can't buy everything, and Softube stole My heart at the last minute. What it is
