API® Vision Channel Strip Collection
API Vision Channel Strip Collection
Dang, why y'all gotta do me like this...
So I bought the OG vision channel strip, and this came out like two months later. I trialed it, thought, its really good, but not THAT much better.
I lied to myself. It is that much better. 100%. The functionality, the mic pre, everything about it. Its punchier, and yet cleaner, without losing mojo or vibe. Thankful to have picked this up!
UAD brand is becoming Profit over Purpose.. *Products are great* but no customer appreciation or loyalty. Most of their 3rd party brands such as Softube & Brainworx, are charging less on their website. Sometimes by HALF. Marshall Amps are $99 (reg) from Softube or $50 during sales.. UAD Charges $199 each! Manley & API products are full price for existing product owners.. Yes R&D has a cost but does that cost include shorting your loyal customers. If you bought it within 6months of new release it should be Free. In terms of the Manley Preamp it's literally identical to the Voxbox, it just dropped a few pounds. And what's with the bundle pricing? Classic FX Bundle is $239 during a SALE when I own 2/3 products? Analog Classics Pro too? It's cheaper to buy the remaining products individually than with my "offer" on the bundles.. Someone needs to take a look at this pricing model and the update/crossgrade paths with UAD because it's shameful. Classic FX Bundle products are 50% off individually during the sale but the bundle is only 20%? Then they give a "Coupon" like you're getting a deal but they really just raised the initial discount price by 30% to offset the coupon. If the 3 products in the bundle are all 50% off then the bundle should be too. Simple. As if software pricing isn't greedy enough, no return value and no physical product. At least when I spend $4000 on a Rhodes it's going to be worth the same or more in 10 years. I'm sure ALL of my UAD plugins will be obsolete by then, with new hardware requirements or compatibility issues/updated versions. Depressing..
feels like a disappointment
Take away an allready bought API Vision Channel Strip Plug-In feels like a disappointment and lowers the trust in the uaudio brand.
I Already Paid for This ...
I already bought this, and I'm being offered ZERO loyalty discount on the update. Why should I have to pay for it a second time just because it's been repackaged? So you added the graphic EQ. So what? That's not nearly enough of an improvement to justify moving my already paid for software to the legacy bin.
Great sound, Annoying fader scale.
The console emulation and summing are very good, but I cant understand the "feature" that changes the fader position and scale when you insert the console or summing emulation, this makes my workflow much worse, nonsense!
please allow the users disable that useless "feature".
Sorry, think about your update policy!!!
As a lot of others here I think there should be a fair way of updating your plugins. Legacy … come on. I dropped Waves a while ago cause I canˋt stand their way of handling and throwing a lot of money in the bin. The internal DAW stuff is getting better and better and at some point it’s not worth spending more money on That…….
very similiar to my API hardware.
very cool plugin! while not 100% as 3D and alive as my API hardware, this is a very versatile and useful plugin with that familiar API flavor.
I Thought I Already Owned This Plugin...?
Sure it's an amazing sounding plugin, but why should I have to buy it again? People paying for this plugin twice sets a dangerous precedent as it lets UA know this is acceptable. Am I going to open a mix tomorrow and see all my plugins are now "legacy" requiring a paid upgrade? Shame on UA for stooping to such lowly marketing techniques
Api channel strip
very disappointed with uaudio, bought the api vision channel some time ago. now the whole thing is being transformed into a legacy version and i am supposed to pay a lot of money a second time for a product that has simply been mutated a second time. (full version) ?! sorry, I'm not participating!
Not sure I want this....
Just bought an X4. Now I see that UAD pulls the same stunts that Waves does on their stuff. Big disappointment. I was told earlier that UAD kept customers happy by guaranteeing future upgrades and improvements, the so-called "you buy it for life" model. Sounds like that is not the case.
Man, I am so happy!!!
So, I had Apollo Twin Duo and Satellite Octo and buch of plugins from UAD, Tapes, Analog series mk2 etc. Recently started using Luna as a FUN PT replacement. And with this sale this was no brainer to pick this up and Maaaan! I Love the feel, the workflow, the sound. Bow for real now I have a freaking API console with instant recall, hundreds of channels and all mastering units baked when you want them, instant sound. Now that is a New Year present, thanks UA, you giving us, digital producers reminiscence of that sound and workflow, it is really good for studying how great songs can be made, I am a Student. Thanks friends!
Love this plugin. Sounds great. I can practically just use this on every channel and get a great mix. Got everything I need in one plug. Loving Life!!
Заплати дважды за один и тот же плагин. Ребят, это позор! Нельзя так с людьми, которые платят и без того немалые деньги за ваши плагины. А еще отдельно заплати за версию для LUNA... Я разочарован.

Pay twice for the same plugin. Guys, it's a shame! This is not the case with people who are already paying a lot of money for your plugins. Also pay for the LUNA version separately ... I'm disappointed.
Paying double for just an "EQ option". BUMMERTOWN.
Very sad that this is just an update to the eq section and now my API channel strip i bought earlier this year is a "legacy version". Shady business forsure.
same plugin as the old one with a few 'updates'
the old buyers of the 'legacy' version will complain & the new buyers will praise their new purchase
Why my api strip legacy ? I don't buy the same plugin twice. Shame on you...
This refresh, like Manley, Neve, should be FREE for the already owners
People pay top dollars for their Apollo, OX, UAFX, and then you release a "refresh" for 150 bucks. You can do better for sure, start thinking outside the box by starting not being so greedy.
Your complains are just not fair..
All you complainers are just not fair..
Come on UA I am waiting for SSL Summing extension Upgrade for Luna!
You are wrong, what is your problem guys?
For al those people who are complaining for paying the same plugin twice, I really do not understand where your problem is, - you get a preamp that colours your sound in a different manner and another optional switchable EQ. this not quite the same, and on top of that you get a NATIVE extension for Luna!
really, I would understand complainments like if you are payng for your updates on waves, but this here is something different...
