funny you mention that r00n
I've just been assisted by Oz who has gone over UAD with me recently. I believe waves VST are amateur plugs and these types of setups (the UAD) are the real deal. I haven't got a UAD yet but when I do (I think it's the best option...UAD1's are no longer available after DEC this year...so buy one now and buy plugins before they're no longer sold....ebay $50-$100) I am confident the sound will be what I've been looking for all these years. I'm kicking myself in the pants for missing out on this quality all these years.
