Looks like Softube screwed up the product launch of Volume 3. Their website first gave you almost random update prices (I got three different prices over a period of two hours and ended up buying at Audiodeluxe). Then they stopped giving out upgrade serials because of system issues. And now Softube Central seems to be broken. And that is exceptionally annoying because you cannot access any installers without a functioning Softube Central.

Zynaptiq Unfilter:
“Remove resonances and other frequency response issues from recordings of acoustic instruments or live performances.
Remove EQ or filtering “printed” to tracks delivered for mix-down or mastering.
Remove guitar cabinet coloration, or apply it to a DI guitar.
Apply corrective EQ to any source within seconds.
Exaggerate a sound’s coloration to more firmly place it in it’s own frequency “window”.
Remove low-mid buildup from sub-mixes and mixes without losing the “body” of the sound.
Balance the spectrum of one or multiple songs.
Capture the frequency response of outboard EQ or other signal paths & apply it or store it as impulse response (WAV).
Accentuate the natural low end on acoustic bassdrums.
Remove spectral peaks caused by corpus resonance, for example on bass or acoustic guitars.
Apply a track’s measured filter response to overdubs made with a different recording setup to make them blend better.”

I understand your frustration. I have Volume 2, and I guess I will wait later for Volume 3.

Does the upgrade price is a promo price or the regular upgrade price?

It is a promo price. The Vol 2->3 upgrade should be $119 ($102 at Best Service and $101 at Audiodeluxe) but for most people it showed $449. Regular upgrade supposedly is going to be $149.

Zynaptiq sale: "from now through May 31st, 2019, UNFILTER is availbale at a discount of over 60% - don't miss out!
UNFILTER: $149/€159*"

I'm loving Gullfoss... is it worth also getting Unfilter for smart eq? How does its automatic resonance removal compare to Soothe?
Another question, what's the difference between Unfilter and Unveil???

Unveil removes reverb/room. Unfilter is designed to undo the work of filtering by getting rid of peak resonances and notches. It has a bit of crossover with Unveil in that it can reverse comb filtering to some extent (as comb filtering can be caused by room echoes).

If you run into that issue, Softube needs to reset the link to the iLok account on their end. Unfortunately this is not something that can be done on the user end. Once they reset it, you can reconnect and then everything should work again. It seems that they broke something in their system when they tried to implement the various Volume 3 upgrade paths.

I guess (hope?) we can expect Native Instruments to do a sale very soon, right (end of month/beginning of June)? Really eager to see if I can get a good crossgrade deal to Kontakt 6 and/or Reaktor 6.

Hi all. Anyone know of a place to get Zynaptiq Unfilter with a discount from the sale $149? Just wondering... the distribs I use know of aren't offering a discount. Best I can find in plugin boutique that offers around $15 in credits :phones:

It is a bit cheaper at T&S and Bestservice but you would need to crunch the numbers with respect to their loyalty schemes in order to get a accurate comparison.

Edit: only if you don’t have to pay VAT, of course. And at T&S you need to select British Pounds as the currency.
