Yeah well, the maths is pretty simply in this case. Everything that´s above 31$ you can buy via 29 forever everything below you can buy like it is or wait for a sale
The new plugins I went for are Shadow Hills Class A Compressor, LISA, AMEK 200 EQ and Sculpt that would have usually sum up to 1426$. Like said, for 124$. (Not discussing wether they are worth the original price). From what I have experienced so far through testing and watching videos, they are of very good quality, a joy to work with, even though the UI of especially LISA can be a bit overwhelming
I truely like the addition of additional Brainworx features to the devices (not Sculpt) like TMT (Tolerance Modeling Technology), Auto Listen, Stereowidth, Headroom, etc.
It´s been the first time I "significantly" bought into VST. So I wouldn´t have that many comparisons besides some free VST plugins from like Analog Obsession, Valhalla, Airwindows and some free Synth along additional free stuff from PA. Btw there is the Free Bundle at PA with some good sounding stuff in it
Anyway, I feel like I got a pretty pleasant package for a pleasant price and can recommend anyone checking PA´s 29 forever and the mentioned devices out

What I don´t really get with Plugin Alliance´ sales model is, how they think someone might buy their still above 31$ plugins during the summersale while you can simply subsribe for a month with 29 forever (29,,99$) and receive a voucher that let´s you buy any of their plugins for 1$ leading to a sum of 30,99$ or 31$ rounded. Yes, the license is perpetual. You can have an arbitrary number of any time cancelable 29 forever subscriptions in parallel. They are basically saying "Hey during our summersale you can get a plugin for 149$ that usually costs 399$, yet you can get it for ~31$ all the time anyway. Unless somebody doesn´t know about 29forever how would one go for the higher price? And what´s the use of the summersale for products still being above 31$? Not complaining here, being happy, having 4 of the most expensive listed plugins gotten for 124$ altogether. Simply wondering what that is about.
I have a friend who takes advantage of that offer and I don’t? Idk I never actually cared to sit down and do the math lmao I just buy them when I think it’s a low enough price. I guess since the incentive to buy plugins at high value with low cost is there with a proven track record, people like buying into the culture more than the plugins… idk I’m just talking here
