  1. https://www.waves.com/downloads/release-notes
  2. And they did have a update to v3.0.1. The installer isn't signed but seems legit. Had fun playing with it again (it's been awhile). 🤷‍♂️
  3. Pretty sure that's legit. It let me login and shows all my purchases (going back years). That said the new site does seem to have some technical issues. My product list page at the bottom has this But the list looks correct and it has all my serial numbers/download links. There is nothing really wrong with Let's Encrypt. It's math. The idea that the extra verification higher levels of SSL certification actually protects you is just a rent seeking racket. This is because SSL certs are being used to do two things. The main thing it does is encrypt the communication between you and the site. Let's Encrypt certs do this as well as any Sectigo cert. The second thing, where it also can verify a site because some trusted 3rd party issued the cert and they are trustworthy, is maybe a bit of a marketing haze. Sure they have painful and difficult processes to try and validate who is asking for a cert, but even that, at the end of the day may not be enough to stop someone from faking an identity. The history of SSL certs is filled with failures and revocations. It's not as gold standard as they might hope you believe. As for signing Windows binaries, again another rent seeking racket. Acting like Hexacord, or any music plugin making company, is a giant company that is making vast amounts of money is a bad idea. It's most likely a barely generating any income kind of business. Best to treat it like what it is. With no music software company can you count on "support". Just look at iZotope's recent announcements for example, shutting down products. And others. And yeah, that may not be something you are comfortable with. The idea that you buy an expensive license to software that might not work and that you won't get any help can be a bit of a crazy thing. I have several thousand dollars worth of software I can't even run anymore due to copy protection issues (we have shut down the authentication server and if you try to move the software to a new machine you can't get a license for it). It happens. As a rule I don't expect anything I buy (correction, I license -- you never get to buy) to ever really work 100% right and I'm reasonable in expecting that the company that made it might not be able to help me or fix it. Setting your customer expectations too high (especially with Hexacords) would be a bad idea. Still it's an interesting product that I've not regretted much of what I've spent on it. But I don't have a lot of faith they are long for this earth and I wouldn't count on it working 100%. Still I've had fun using it and made interesting music with it.
  4. I submitted a ticket but I also give up. You can uninstall Native Access 2 and re-install Native Access 1. So I did. Not really impressed with Komplete 14 CE so far 😞 Should have waited for the summer sale.
  5. And that dialog has no way to close it. You have to kill the process or reboot.
  6. After my attempt to upgrade to Native Access 2 (that's after two reboots).
  7. I got mine on Sept 8th. The subject of the email is "Important / Liquid Notes: Claim Your Copy of CHORDS Pro + NOTES Now" from "W. A. Production" <news@waproduction-email.com> Just redeemed it. Note the 100% off coupon expires September 30th 2022
  8. They make you register at another site https://getmylicense.ca/bundle/register/ who then sends you an email with another link that you then use the serial number Best gives you. Which then gives you the actual serial numbers (9 of them) for use at iZotope/etc. Here are the instructions:
  9. This upgrade from RX 6 Post Production Suite from Best Service comes as a handful of licenses (after you jump through this bizarre extra hoop). But it's not exactly individual licenses. Here's what I got: Stutter Edit 2 (serial) Brainworx - Creative Mixing Set (serial) Melodyne Essential Trash 2 w/Expansion Packs Iris 2 (serial) Music Production Suite 5 UE (serial) RX Post Production Suite 7 BreakTweaker Expanded (serial) Status 3D and Symphony 3D The two big ones (PPS 7 and MPS 5) are single serials and register everything included. So you might be able to peel off Stutter Edit/Trash/IrisBreakTweaker but not parts from any of the big bundles. For the price it wasn't too bad. RX Advanced has always been good, not sure what's new though. The other bits I almost had all of already.
  10. I have all the Ark's in Kontakt version and got the "free" upgrades to SINE (not sure you get that now though). The Kontakt versions are better. A lot better. I tried the SINE versions and uninstalled them. Don't need to waste twice the disk space.
  11. So I installed this (and picked up the sampler). I pointed it at my giant ACID music loop library directory. Let it scan overnight. This morning it showed something like 23,000 samples (so it must have found something). But oddly enough my ACID Loop folder had a count of 0 samples and it wouldn't show anything? A simple file search says it should have found about 400,000 wav files. I don't think Cosmos is up to handling a real sample library.
  12. If you already own any of the products in the bundle they reduce the bundle price by the value of those products. Using crazy math. See this web page: https://spitfireaudio.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360007710458-How-do-Collections-work-Price-example-
  13. I have to admit the Spitfire Solo Strings are really good. I got them with some bundle or something a year or so ago. Didn't think I'd be amazed, but more often than not these days they end up as my solo strings of choice. With credit for what I already had, getting the Chamber strings and Stratus (the two in the bundle I'm missing) seemed reasonable. Will have to hope I can find some time to actually use them. Neo is pretty nice too, but the rest I'd not say are must haves. I've yet to really find much use for either London Contemporary Orchestra Textures or Spitfire Symphonic Motions. They are fun to play with though and could spark something.
  14. Musician's Friend/Guitar Center do 15% off coupons a few times a year that have usually included Omnisphere. But it's a physical copy -- they have to mail it to you. It's about the best deal on Spectrasonics products you can get.
  15. Limited Time Offer Owners of Spitfire Symphonic Strings, Symphonic Motions, Symphonic Evolutions or Chamber Strings save 35% on RRP during the introductory pricing period. Ensure you are logged in to view your special price. Sadly that's 35% off full price (not the intro price), which comes to $161.85
