Aubrey – I have two 31 Utility Totes, two bags from Amazon and one from Walmart. The bags from Amazon are cheaper than 31 bags but are every bit as good in terms of quality. Further, the Walmart bag cost the least but, in my opinion, is the best bag. The only downside is there aren’t many fabric choices. Also, I had another 31 bag that I bought as a work bag, it was expensive and it fell apart. I do like the 31 bags (I think the fabric is pretty) but I would rather save money.
I purchased a soft thermal bag..after little / non heavy use several months later the liner ripped away from the stitching along the zipper. The company claimed to not be able to find my sale from the rep I purchased it from, and said they would not replace it, but offered me a coupon with a % off to purchase something else. REALLY? Why would I want to purchase another over priced cheap product? Even worse...the rep I did purchase it from, is willing to pay to have it resewn, and its not even her responsibility to fix this companies product! I was also told that if you purchase their products as a cash & carry item from a rep, they wont warranty that either! NOW...this company knows most of their reps, purchase products to sell at Vendor events. What a cheap way to get out of replacing cheaply made products..let a bunch of reps make you $$$ by selling your products, treat them bad, treat the people purchasing your products even worse. How long before you close your doors? SOON I hope, so you will quit cheating the consumer.
I don't think I could live without all my thirty-one bags! I have a big weekender bag that works perfectly for a carry-on bag or quick weekend away with my hubs. I have a duffel bag that holds a change of clothes if I have somewhere to go right after work. The gym bag is amazing because it has a compartment in the bottom for my sneakers! I swear by the tons of funds wallet because if you put on the purse strap, it's the absolute most perfect small crossbody. I'm waiting on the new lakeside tote to arrive. Our vacation to Isle of Palms, SC is in a month and a half, and I can't wait to use it as my beach bag. If you don't own a thirty-one bag yet, get one! They're a bit on the expensive side, but absolutely worth every penny. So many options for so many different uses!
The second algorithm is more complex and continuously look at the level of each frequency band and consequently updates the equalizer to reduce masking and keep the track balanced in ever single moment. If you use the plugin with this mode inside a broadcasting chain you can always guarantee a constant frequency optimized output even if the content of your audio changes a lot.
Internally the “Auto EQ” algorithm compares the average peak level of the frequency bands with each of the bands and computes the necessary gain to apply to the EQ to bring the level of that specific band to match with the one of a carefully designed ideal response. This sounds complicated but it’s actually very effective in automatically balancing the frequency content of the mix.
I will always love 31 I love some of the prints they come out with and if you just order them as they are the prices are not to bad but if you do want their signature products with your monogram initials or whatever on them it does jump the price considerably. I don’t order as much as I did when they were new but I have to say the large totes are super handy and really last a long time they are put together well and made to last!
