Value for money? I think I paid $75 with the Cyber Monday bundle deal? It's an echo of it's hardware counterpart tho I don't find myself using it as much as the separate UAD API EQ's -that said? Still lots of fun on guitars etc. That and as always- great way to get disappointed if you compare the real & the modeled...tho UAD has their game face on- I'm not even gonna get into it.
When in doubt? Remember that a track made on an iPhone in GarageBand was nominated for a Grammy.
