The PSP and Valhalla Plugs are ones I really am happy I paid for.

I've bought a lot but....r....many times a few months or a year later a free one comes out that is just as nice. Not so with these.

DL'd the demo just now. It's giving me a bit more body on my kick drum than just my standard bitcrusher. I think I like it.

Do you think pro tools will do upgrade path from RTAS to AAX for their expansion pack?

You should start to use them until you feel like you've reached their limits or you want some different flavour.
If that'll happen some day, take a look at the very reasonably priced (and high quality) ValhallaDSP ValhallaRoom (for reverb), Übermid (for great modulation ans more) and the Klanghelm DC8C for ultra-versatile compression.
Valhalla Room. +1

This is the CHEAPEST and GREATEST sounding reverb plugin in MY opinion and a TON of others on GS.

Search for it, you'll find hundreds of reports of how amazing it is. You can't go wrong.

But I used the HELL out of the stock reverb in pro tools, still do sometimes! But Valhalla Room. MMMMmmm

Same here. Most ridiculously featured EQ. Its not a "colored" EQ, so it doesn't color the tracks in any way. Just gives you GOOD clean EQ. But some of the features are just nice.

24 bands
each band can be ANY type of band
listen feature on every band
M/S processing
can be made into a linear phase EQ for mastering
Built in frequency analyzer, one of the better ones...can be used pre or post EQ, or even have both displayed.
Plus tons of others

No I dont work for Fabfilter, I just really love this plugin. It can do everything from extremely surgical cuts to big huge wide boosts.

It really is. Its pretty much the best digital EQ out there, some might vote for DMGs Equick, which looks highly similar to Pro Q, but came out after.

Couldn't agree more.
