The FLUX:: Studio Session plugins pass muster regarding fidelity, function and value and also provide some unique, if not innovative, features. Some "essential" and handy features included are: a. input/output meters and gain controls, b. A to B comparison with a blending slider, c. real time graphic displays of plugin functions and d. color changing rings around the control knobs that provide a quick and clear indication of the parameters' metrics. As such, the FSS compares well to other plugin bundles of this ilk but does come with some problems. While the GUI is straightforward some of the features are not and the support resources are woefully inadequate at filling in the gaps. Some of the links to the manuals are broken and I was only able to access the Epure EQ manual through a link I stumbled upon elsewhere. The on-line video tutorials also fail to inform on the plugins' features and serve only to illustrate a generic approach to mixing. We users are left on our own to figure out a disconcerting amount of the technology. The plugins also lack some basic human interface functionality such as using the scroll wheel to operate the controls and being able to resize the display area. While I think this bundle is worth the price of admission I also think FLUX:: has some work to do in bringing the plugins up to contemporary standards; especially in the area of support resources.
