  1. This f-ing company. Mine count is down too. Do they sit around in meetings thinking of ways to screw their customer base and find new ways to foster resentment towards the company? They have some GREAT products, but man, instead of actively listening to their customers... who regardless of our complaining probably still want the company to do well, and even exceed.... but they seem to be in a race with themselves to get to the bottom as far as customer satisfaction goes.
  2. I had to buy my re-download once when I bought a new computer. I mean, it's just 10 bucks so it wasn't really a big deal, but if I ever need to do it again, I'll just simply quit using Syntronik/SampleTank/whatever else. I have plenty of other plug-ins. If they removed the restriction, they would certainly garner a lot of good will from their users since everyone who's had to do it has complained about it. And even those who never had to.
  3. Not directly for me. I had to import them again (one by one) but they work after that. No need to re-save after the import. I only had 5 or 6 so it didn’t take any time.
  4. Oh man, the new interface makes this infinitely better than version 3, at least for me. I bought SA3 about a year ago, played with it for a few days, and then it just sat there. I just couldn't get into the way it worked. I liked the sound but not the process. So far, SA4 feels much more inviting for discovery where the last version I felt like I was constantly being held back. I'm obviously in the honeymoon phase having just bought it today, but I'm so far I'm liking it a LOT more. But then again, I'm just a hack, banging away at the keys and coming up with cool sounds and not someone who's deep in synths, so..... who knows how it'll hold up in a few months. Worth the 50 bucks though.
  5. If anyone is even remotely interested in a B3, this is the one to get. Hands down, one of IK’s finest.
  6. Big fan of these pianos! All of 'em!
  7. Yea, the Famous E is really good. I think the Hammer + Waves Electric is outstanding IMO (also for Kontakt).
  8. Thanks Fleer! Didn't know that. Updated the post.
  9. No clue if something like this is available for PC’s but these are quality-of-life apps that make dealing with plug-in MUCH easier. PlugInfo - https://www.thinkersnacks.com/as-pluginfo.html $2.99 Mac App Store I think this was originally created to track which plug-ins are Apple Silicon compatible. It’s perfect for that, but it’s also super convenient to see which versions you have installed - VST, AAX, Audio Unit, VST3. Don’t need VST versions? Right click to open that folder and delete them from there. It’s much quicker than digging around to find the plug-in versions you don’t need when Installers don’t give you the option to choose. I don’t use AAX but with every update from someone like Softube, therein there, just taking up space. Highly recommended. MacUpdater - https://www.corecode.io/macupdater/index.html Free and Paid Versions ($35) This will track all your apps that need updating, but the real benefit is the $35 paid version that tracks plug-ins as well. This one has become essential. You can pick how often you want it to run and it’s always going in the background (but doesn’t use any resources until it does the scan). I wasn’t sure if I would use this so I tried the free version (just apps) and bought the upgrade for plug-ins about 10 minutes later. Highly recommended.
  10. I've definitely cut back, but it's not necessarily about finances. It's more or less about seeing the embarrassing amount of tools I own that I haven't fully explored yet. I'll see a nice new instrument come out, get on all the forums to see what people are saying, check out all the YouTube videos and just savor that sweet, sweet dopamine rush.... and then realize I probably have something that's "close enough" in my library and I tell myself just can't justify it. But man, the thrill of the hunt (and places like this that are just enabling out addiction) makes it difficult. LOL.
  11. Yea, I think it's going to be very interesting to see how they move forward with the success of Tonex in the guitar world. If they continue with their current approach, I really don't think guitar players will stick with them. Those guys will turn on a dime and all the progress IK has made will be gone in a flash. I REALLY hope they have a plan. Guitar gear is an entirely different world than the plugin market and if they screw that up for guitarists by nickel a diming them, there's no way they'll use IK for anything .
  12. It shows up in mine. I had to restart my computer for Amp Room to even show up, so, maybe try that.
  13. Man, IK Multimedia are the Kings of "one step forward, 2 steps back". I really love some of your stuff, and I get excited when I see new stuff from you, but every product rollout you do is just a confusing mess. To me (and I'd assume pretty much everyone else here) v2 means Version 2, which would indicate that it's an update to the software itself and not just additional bundled content. Don't get me wrong, I do appreciate the added content, but it's very misleading to customers. Peter, I know you do your best, and we all appreciate your presence, but have you brought it up to the powers that be that every time something new comes out you need to spend weeks on forums clarifying the information that should have been crystal clear from the launch?
  14. I bought this about a week ago and have absolutely no regrets. And for $35 bucks, it's a steal. It's like a cross between a Rhodes and a Wurly and it gives you an insane amount of options from pure sounds to sound design. Highly recommended IMO.
  15. I bought the upgrade to Max a few weeks ago. I figured it'd be cheaper to go that route then update, say, Amplitude to V5 on it's own when it came out since I already own a few of the Max suites. Kinda disappointed to be honest. I was expecting updates, like, SampleTank 5, AmpliTube 5, Syntronik 3 etc. and not just a bunch of existing libraries being added. Is that how it's always been?
  16. Yea, I did. I tried the H&W piano for a few days and sadly did the return. I couldn't justify it (but LOVE their electrics!). H&W is great piano, but since most of what I play on piano is by itself, it wasn't as warm and full as I was getting from Chroma, this has THE sound I was looking for. I have no idea how well it sits in a mix though. I would imagine H&W and Ascend fit in much better.
  17. I bought this when it came out and I still LOVE it. Fantastic sound and super versatile. Noire was my go-to before this and this beats it on every level for the sound I like.
  18. Oh yea, night and day for my tastes. I haven't tried any of the Tonex captures yet but it's much better than the AmpliTube version IMO..
  19. I had zero interest in this until I watched Rabea's video. I downloaded the trial.... and it sounds spectacular. Damn it. 😆
  20. Release

    PA Amp Alarm

    Same here. I get on ToneNet every few weeks and harvest a bunch of different amps that catch my ear and just..... play...... instead of endlessly tweaking.
  21. All the software that I've bought in the last few years through Sweetwater have all been downloads.
  22. Yea, I think I paid around 80 and it was totally worth it at that price. For 40 bucks (and if you like the Juno sound) just get it. It's an outstanding version and probably my favorite that I've heard.
  23. Same here. I had to contact them yesterday since the actual sound bank wasn't listed in my downloads. They fixed it, I installed it, went to register.... and.....invalid. 😆
  24. This is a really nice delay. Absolutely worth the price.
