    There's no demo but it's cheap and those who bought it seems to like it. But who cares? I will wait for this one to be released and open my wallet.

    Okay. Fair enough, but why say, "Who cares?" concerning the SKnote plugin?

    What makes you so sure and willing to spend money on a plugin that hasn't even been released yet?

    I'd guess that he trusts the creator of the Distressor (and the head of Empirical Labs) to wrap it up into a good plugin. ;)

    I'm a skeptical person, especially when it involves me spending my money. Trust is overrated. :suspicious:

    Yea considering who made that post, this makes me quite excited. Obviously will need to be demoed but this is one of the main pieces of gear that we haven't had a really widely available and accurate emulation of yet. Stoked to see how it sounds!

    theres no way I trust sknote to be stable/supported/reliable, they're just way too chaotic as a company. if the plugin works for you then great but for my use I just don't think its worth the hassle, even for the cheap price.

    Never used the hardware, but I have the SKnote version. I dunno how accurate of an emulation it is, but it is rock solid on my machine and is my go-to drum bus and bass compressor.

    Yup, that's exactly what I was gonna say, it works just flawlessly on my system, and I really like it's sound, it's pretty much on every mix I've done since I bought it.

    Just read that announcement from Sknote's main guy regarding Disto on Gearslutz :

    "Now Disto is officially licensed by Empirical Labs.

    A bunch of presets by our good friend Dave Derr are coming [​IMG]"

    Wait I'm confused. The sknote is officially licensed, is empirical labs still making one?

    I read that it will be a native plugin, which is a little weird considering the official Fatso plugin is UAD-only

    Yep works solidly here too. I find when using it in parallel on bass where there's a lot of low end, and you're compressing a lot it tends to distort rather easily, so you have to be careful, but otherwise it works great!

    After toying three minutes with it I think I may have to buy it.
