On a whim I got Simon Stockhausen's Panopticon the other day in the Easter sale, and that was pretty good. I mean, I re-categorized everything, but I'm me so I would. I think he's the best 3rd Party sound designer working on Avenger at the moment, he seems to have a particular flair for organic evo...

Re: For the next 4 days only: PSP Xenon for $29 instead of $249

That's quite a discount.
My "go to" was FabFilter Pro-L for some time, and now the Pro-L 2. Does anyone have experience with both the PSP and the FabFilter? I'd be interested to hear your preference, and why.
