    I'm so vain, I think every "yes" response right below my asking "was I wrong" is about me, don't I don't I don't I

    Get this! (I have the whole rack, but this little guy is a regular goto.) Hey SoundToys please add Little Radiator to the Rack

    I use Radiator often, so I'm sure the Little version is just a bit lighter on features but with the same great tone. It's a nice colour plugin, so if that's what you're after, then $10 seems quite reasonable. Besides, as others have mentioned, it does lower the upgrade price down the line.

    Full disclosure: I own the Soundtoys bundle, and I consider the whole thing indispensable.

    I don't think you need the dongle. You can also use the free iLok License Manager to activate it on your machine.

    If I recall correctly, little radiator is modeled after a slightly different version than radiator. They are close but not exactly the same, even beyond the differences in more controls.

    Is there a way to calculate how much buying this would deduct from an eventual upgrade?

    Ah, sorry Nick. I wasn’t really paying attention to where my response fit in the order of things. I should be more aware and maybe not post single word answers.

    I am sure there is, but what I noticed is that the difference in upgrade to the complete package was a lot more than the 10 USD I paid for the Little Radiator.

    I may be mistaken, but I think they give you full price credit for the purchase.

    How low does the Echoboy jr get? I see a few people selling it pre-owned for about $30, but I wonder if you have to do an iLok transfer? iLok will probably add on $25 for the transfer.

    No. That doesn’t work for me. But if I want to pay another $29 i can upgrade to v5 that supposedly works as you describe

    So are they not selling the current version of the plug-in?

    Kinda tough, depending on current Cost of Soundtoys 5. List is $499. current offer is $369.
    My offer gets this down to $200. with (5) 'Littles' and (3) others (Devil-Loc5, Sie-Q5, Tremolator5).
    Bottom line is apprx $20. per product, for these 'lesser' cost items.
    OTH, earlier Trade-in total has been down near $100.

    Not much help, but …. seems value comes back if goal is ultimately Soundtoys 5 …..

    I have 3 little ones, but my 'offer' is $375, which is $6 more than the current sale price :rofl:
    But $20 as you said seems about right for something like Little radiator, in which case, I'll just leave it for now.

    Usually they offer anyone who has their stuff no matter what you paid for $180 on BF. Another developer who works hard at trying to get owning everything. They would be tops on my list of developers loyal to all of their end users.

    Well that’s a good question. Mine doesn’t really say what it is, I got it a while ago.

    Not at all! I need to stop thinking the whole world revolves around me.

    Only half of it does.

    I bought the Little Radiator plugin at this sale and I can use it without the iLok dongle, so I guess it has nothing to do with the version of the plugin.
