I bought some extra stuff for the Console 1 - the Summit Audio channel strip, and found an old deal where, because I once bought a Focusrite interface, I could get some extra Softube stuff for a good price. So through that I got the FET Compressor for Console 1 plus extras, for cheaper than the FET Compressor alone (astonishingly, I don’t have an 1176-style plugin, although there are two proper Urei 1176 vintage units in the studio).

And then Softube put a good price on Tape, so I got that too...

I bought a new set of blades for my stanley knife, but actually I'd forgotten it was black friday so I'm not sure if that counts.

I didn't have that many plugins apart from the ones that came bundled with Reason and SoundForge, so I decided to buy the Waves Diamond bundle. Now I reckon I probably have more than enough, but I need to understand the characteristics of the new ones.
Was it justifiable ? Of course it was.............................

PSP Nexcellence. Because you can never really have too many spring reverb plugins.

(I have too many spring reverb plugins.)

Alternatively, you have just the right number to be able to chain them and make the world's first giant VST slinky ;)

Which came first? The slinky or the spring reverb? Or is one just the off spring (sorry) of the other?

Spring reverb was 1939, slinky was 1943.

Oh man. I thought I was alright.
I mean, it was just a throw away comment on another thread.
I could just go and take a look right?
Black Friday sale has probably finished anyway right?

You are my savior! I am not alone! Couldn't resist and got the Acoustica Ebony at EUR 59.
It's not even Friday.

And same comment I guess.

I think we both need the Plugin Anonymous at this point! :D :D
