    I just upgraded my computer to run PT7 and my new McDsp project pack which I got at guitar center for 400 dollars. I heard good things about them so i figured i would check them out. First off my system is a G4 powerbook with Mbox 1 gig ram 1.5 Ghz processor. In PT 6.9 i could run about 15 RTAS plug ins if I was lucky a reverb or two and then about 6-7 compressors and 5 EQs so I did a bunch of audio suite plugins to save computer power.

    Now I can run at least 27 plug ins about 10 compressors 2 reverbs, 15 eqs and I am only hitting a little over half my power. They sound great you get a compressor, a filter, chrometone which is a guitar model, a CONVELUTION REVERB which sounds great but is a power beast and have ways to run it, a sample library. I recommend this for anyone that has PT7 and wants to get some good sounding plug ins they sound great, My only complaint is that the filter bank is not an easy filter to use and the pre sets add muddy sounds to your mix but you can fix them so they sound better.

    glad you liked them, IMO the mcdsp line of plugs are freakin great, beautiful sounding. if you get a chance could you describe some of the differences of the light version of the reverb and the full, the websites pretty unclear as to the differences.

    As far as the reverbs go on the LE you cant control eq and extra delay. Basically it is a better sounding d-verb. There are about 100 presets that sound great. The only problem is that you have to record a stereo mix of the entire track before you finish and then do an file based saved of the reverb. If i had a 002 then it would save me having to do that, since the Mbox has the bug in it with audio spikes
