Elemental Audio acquired by Roger Nichols...

Roger Nichols bought out Elemental Audio, and is now selling the plugins for more than twice the original price and are chaining the plugins to iLok.



sigh.

Very disappointed. The new names are cheezy and the GUI has been changed. I use all the Elemental Audio stuff when mixing for film and television, and although I would say that I'm not going to be upgrading to the newly branded versions of the plugins, I was waiting for an Intel-Mac upgrade.

WTF??

Yeah, that sucks. EA was going to be my next batch of plug to buy. Not anymore.

Thanks, Roger...

By far the dumbest names for plugins I have EVER seen! Even though I use these puppies everyday, just because Roger Nichols has his name on them they would not be worth the price increase. Stay out of marketing Roger!

Yeah, I'm almost inclined to think EA and Roger are up to some sick, stupid joke.

Yeah, Roger - that name is the Shiiiizzz-nizzzo....

Thanks for getting out of the way at least, EA!

The Massey stuff deserves all of the market you just lost.

But, no Massey for AU/VST. I'd buy 'em all tomorrow if I could run them not only on my PT rig, but also in Logic & Nuendo.

Can't someone plead with this guy that we all just lost a 'dearly beloved Plugin' and we Logic Pro users are a loyal and dependable lot who WILL buy his plugs if he makes them AU.

Stuff 'Roger Rabbit's' crap.

Not sure why the price increased, but having met Mr. Nichols I can say he's a really nice guy.

WHAT THE HELL!?!?!?

What happened to the plugins he advertised???
http://www.rndigital.com/index.html

I'll tell you what happened. Roger had big dreams about these plugins but found no one that would code an Auto-Mix plugin. He had lots of money so he bought EA since they had some good working plugins. Now he wants to get that money back so he overcharges for the "Nicholized" plugins. Further EA plugin development ceases.

Does he have the same development team or will this mean no more Equim updates?

I couldn't say it any better Adamjay.

What a drag! And twice the price? WTF? Plus, what happened to the analyzer plug-in? I hadn't bought any EA plugs 'yet' and planned on getting the EQ's based on the demos, but won't be buying them now. tutt

Doesn't seem like a good way to attract new customers and keep old one's. But what do I know?

Shockingly bad news, I'm tremendously dissapointed. $349 apiece, wow that's a really steep increase. Thank goodness I already have them all. They are great plugins, so it's not that they aren't worth that much, it's just that aren't a great *value* at the new price.

The changeover to iLok crosses them right off my list of plugins to keep up with.

This once again validates (to myself anyway) my policy of buying minimal amounts of plugins and staying with hardware as much as possible. I just can't stand it when stuff like this happens, and the lifespan of this product just got a lot shorter. No mention of IntelMac updates on Roger Nichols site, and I shudder to think of waht the upgrade cost would be. Plus having to iLok them. Who knows if an upgrade path will even be offered to EA customers. Ugh.

EA was so cool, they were always responsive and knowledgable, and their web site had a lot of information about the plugs. That's all gone. Roger Nichols is very busy, I'll be amazed if he can provide the same level of support to customers.

Roger has no clue about current recording technology. It's very sad when you think about it. His ego is larger than his brain. What a shame!
