Which Samplitue upgrade?

    I got Samp SE with Computer Music magazine and I've been trying it out on some imported wav files that I did on my AW16G. The sound quality is excellent, and after an afternoon's work I was able to get the object editing going and work out how to do basic comping. This is the first music software that I've used, so I can't compare it to the alternatives, but I do now understand a bit about the power of the object editing, and I like it!

    I'm wondering about which upgrade to go for: the classic or the pro. The pro is very much more expensive, and for me, the critical value point concerns whether or not the analog modelling suite is worth the extra money.

    An alternative would be the get the classic and buy one of the other hot analog modelling plugins, e.g., UAD or even the new focusrite liquid mix box.

    Can anyone give me any insight into this choice? -- how do Samp's analog plugins stand up to the competition?

    Also -- given I'm an acoustic musician recording just voice and guitar -- are there any other features of the pro version that would truly justify the pro version over the classic?
