    I’m on the road in LA, and just downloaded Bus-driver onto my laptop with Logic, and this plug in sounds GREAT! Very smooth, it brings out very subtle details in a mix, and adds a lot of old-school punch. I can’t wait to get home and audition it on some studio monitors.

    Condolences to Bernie’s friends and family for their loss of Bernie. Bernie very quickly responded to a bug I found in the Nomad EQs which was really impressive considering he was struggling with cancer at the time. My Nomad Factory plugins now have a special context for me. I recommend the Nomad plugins – they have a very nice warm sound to them that is unique compared to other brands.
