What's your thoughts on subscription based plugins? For example, Slate Digital offers you an All Access Pass for $14.95 per month (one year commitment). With this you get access to any plugin they have plus any new plugin or update they release. Contrast that to buying the plugin out right. You can purchase the Virtual Mix Rack for $200 and own it for life. Not sure if that includes any updates or now. I tend to not like subscription services as the costs can really add up over time but I can see the logic some of these all access passes. The other consideration is how many of these other plugins would I actually use.
