SF9 iZotope Plugs in Vegas?

I'm pretty certain the answer is Yes but thought I'd better check.

The iZotopes plugs that are included with the SF9 upgrade offer once installed will also be available to Vegas?

Given that they're VST I'd assumed they'll become available to ANY app but then I see iZotope are using some funky registration process so thought I'd better ask.

Yeah I know, this should have been in the Audio forum.

Yes Bob - they appear in the Third Party folder without the iZotope name - just "Mastering EQ", "Mastering Reverb" etc.

Must admit I didn't know this myself till you asked - I've been opening copy in SF9 and applying Izotope there!

Thanks Peter,
makes the USD 100 upgrade price worth it for that alone.

And now for the follow-up assumption / question: The Sony Noise Reduction that come with SF9 can also be used directly in Vegas, right?

Yes NR works in Vegas too, the only one I cant get to work is Acoustic Mirror in Vegas

NR2 has always worked in Vegas however given how it works and the lack of other tools like a spectrum analyser in Vegas, SF is by far the only way to get the most out of NR.

I'm sorry but this lil update to sf9 isn't impressive, and I couldn't throw izotope far enough away from me.
I'd love to hear though some of the reasons some of you feel this update is a must have. Anybody?

Well... support for multitrack .WAV files is pretty huge.

I've always found SF's simpler interface easier to manage than Vegas, if I'm doing live field recording on a laptop. Now, with multitrack capability, I can use SF for live recordings of 3 or more instruments. Because everything is saved into a single file, you don't have to worry about accidentally bumping something out of sync, or properly arming each track like you do in Vegas. And you can use the resulting file in most any other software (such as Vegas, for example).

There's some nifty new scripts (like "Extract from CD and Batch Encode"), you now have the same snapping indicators you have in Vegas.

Also, if you don't already have Noise Reduction, the $99 upgrade price is worth it for that alone. NR has saved my bacon more times than I care to remember.
