    I really like it so far. More attitude/in your face than equivalent settings on something like the CLA76 bluey, definitely feels like a Distressor. Not 100% sold on the saturation knob vs picking a mode and letting the comp do its own thing but it really does sound great.

    Reading on Gearslutz, I don't think they've announced a price for it but it looks like it'll retail for $300-$350.

    Damn that's a bit pricey.

    Anyone else demoing this? How do you guys like it?

    While I would DEFINITELY use this plugin if it was free, $350 is way too steep. Hell I only paid $99 for the fabfilter pro C2 on the Christmas sale.
    I love me some distressor but this is twice as expensive as most compressor plugins. I can live without it for a bit.

    I didn't even look at the price tag. I'll stick with Sknote's version for $30...

    Yeah, I'm not finding it as exciting as I did at first. The saturation control and attack mod are pretty cool but I find myself reaching for C2, CLA76, or the Softube FET after dicking around with Arouser for a bit.

    Looks like Slate has a Distressor clone coming out this summer.

    Yup. Looks less flexible though. I really liked the Attack modification setting on the Arousor.

    Also pretty pissed (though not surprised) about the Slate All buttons in being a separate module.
    The new Blue FET compressors sound fantastic through.

    Well. Slate has come out with enough new plugins that it MIGHT be worth just getting the all bundle. I'll wait til the distressor comes out and demo it first. If the slate distressor does well I'll skip the arouser.

    Anyone doing the slate subscription bundle? God I fucking hate software subscriptions. $200 per year from avid, $274 from Slate, who the fuck knows who else will decide to squeeze us continually.

    Why can't they upgrade the FG plugin with that option instead?

    I didn't read that last sentence when I got the email. That makes me happy since I'm not a subscription holder at this time.

    I already know that but my point was that they could had included that in the fg plugin instead of a new one.

    No and why should I? But you should, asking such a stupid question.

    Because they probably had a good reason to make it it's own separate module. Besides, Steven said you're gonna get it for free. So quit bitchin'.
    That's the pot calling the kettle black.
