    Thanks Cliff and team FAS - great update! I'm on my third Axe-FX since Ultra days, always happy to benefit from your breakthrough updates, so FWIW I would gladly choose current version only if it will allow future updates to my MKI. PS - Love the Hook!

    New Spectrasonics Plug

    Impressive sound and size (77GB)! I followed the keys sample road a long ways (8DIO 28/69 Steinways, Piano in Blue, Emotional Piano, and a too many others) but since FAS helped disabuse me of any notion of limits to physical modelling I jumped in with both feet (Pianoteq 5, Lounge Lizard EP-4)...

    Paypal sucks!!

    I used paypal and ebay for years, and yes, also hated the ever bigger bite they took. I dumped both when they stealth foisted in 2014 a policy that does not allow you to opt out of robocalls from them or their vendor partners. Google wallet since.
