USE Audio Plugiator?

Post by sepiakeys » Wed Jul 23, 2008 11:23 pm

Is it worth thinking about? Does anyone have an opinion on the quality of the analog emulations (Minimax, Prodissey, Pro 5), do they each sound different? What about the Hammond, Lightwave and the Vocoder?

Thanks!
Good programming is worth more than the most expensive synthesizer.

check past post....there is 3 or 4 page thread about it.

Subject title may have been DEATH OF CREAMWARE BIRTH OF THE PLUGILATOR or something like that.

haven't played it or the Creamware yet, but from what i gather the Odyssey emulation is the most impressive. which is counter-intuitive imo, since the older synths are usually more difficult to emulate the sound and behavior of.

Ancient bump, anyone use one of these? Demos look pretty nice - for around 300 bucks it seems like a no brainer but they aren't very popular , must be a reason?

they sound great (if they sound the same as the other creamware versions - i haven't actually heard the plugiator).
but, they are not really editable on their own, probably one of the ugliest pieces of hardware I've ever seen + were poorly marketed.
grab one! I probably will in the near future - along with maybe a behringer bcr controller to edit it.

Great synth if you don't mind the computer editor. I'm thinking of picking up another.

I had one for a while, and it sounds absolutely fantastic. I bought and sold mine around the $500 range. It is certainly worth $300, especially if all 8 plug-ins are included.

Is USE Audio even still in business?

The website has had an update since early 2009 and current pricing is like a blowout.
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

I registered mine and got my plugin codes about 6 weeks ago without issue so I assume they are still in business.
