  1. Some notes...

    • Samplitude Pro latest version is X7
    • Vegas Pro latest version is 20
    • MusicMaker latest version is 2023
    • Sound Forge Audio Studio latest version is 16
    • The Producer Planet keys are for the non-commercial version of the soundpool

    I'm not saying it's a bad deal, but just be aware of what you are getting, 2 versions behind in most cases, and get ready to be reminded frequently that there is a newer version available.

    Note that there are add-ons that may make the deal more interesting, e.g., with Samplitude X5 you get Convology XT Complete and the CoreFx suite.

    I got it and I like the approach of "planes" (compared to the "focus" in e.g., Neutron, to compare MM to another mixing system with "learning", but note that Neutron has other strengths, I'm referring specifically to mix levels). This video may help you understand what it can do and what's the workflow when using it

  3. Reminder: In past occasions iZotope upgrades have been full licences, with no restrictions on reselling prior versions,

    The prices you're joking about may sound completely different once you factor that in. E.g., asking prices for MPS4 in knobcloud are $250, in theory you could upgrade MPS4 to 5.2 for $149, then get back $250 (this is where the "in theory" part can fail, you may need to sell it cheaper) and not only get guitar rig but also make some money while doing it

    If they have official distributors in the US and Europe, wouldn't that make them subject to the laws of the land that they made the sales in?

    Probably the ones subject to the corresponding local law are the distributors. If you got the code from a distributor in the US or Europe you may be able to get a refund from them when the code no longer works.

    If you got the code as a promotion from Waves.com it should be Israeli law that applies (otherwise international e-commerce would be a nightmare of legal requirements)

    Loyalty voucher expired early this month, right before round 1 of this sale...sadly as this would have been a good opportunity to stack things otherwise and a fairly small list of excluded plugins this time.

    Ah, bummer! The original message didn't have an expiration other than "the month" but yes, I found an email saying that they expired on the 24th.

  6. If anyone would need a $75 voucher (min purchase $99) to sweeten their purchase just ping me...
    (this should be stackable E.g., 2 plugins on sale for $34.99 plus one eligible for the any-2999, $99.97 minus $75, total 3 plugins for $24.97)


  7. Note that the $5 coupon code APD-NWVBBYY9-5-OFF that was posted earlier by Leok85 can still be used in addition to the current promotion (although I got a message noting that the minimum purchase is $50).



    Note as well that the Unlimited MIDI Bundle comes with $125 in vouchers (Look in the "bonus" folder for each of the 5 midi collections, each has a $25 voucher, no minimum purchase necessary but there are restrictions on what's eligible, e.g., not applicable to discounted bundles)

    Additionally, since getting Ghosthack UPB2021 from APD doesn't give you the product directly (it gives a voucher that you then use to buy at Ghosthack's website), the purchase qualifies for the current "Buy One, get one 50% off" promotion, and e.g., you can get UPB2022 for $40, a good deal if you are interested in these kinds of libraries

  8. In my PC I have configured Firefox as the default browser. When I launch CbB it tries to log in (oauth) and fails with

    Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at localhost:4342

    If I change the system default browser to Edge and re-launch CbB it works ok

    It is a pain that whenever I want to use CbB I need to start tweaking with the system settings and then change them back. Is there a configuration option in CbB for selecting which browser it will use for oauth (instead of the system default)?

    There is no mention it should be registered before March 26, 2023. 

    I either can't find any mention of it on the Waves website, or in their FAQ or Terms and Condition.


    They claim that because of an upcoming update to their registration system, codes issued before March 26 2023 will no longer work afterwards. The information was sent by email and discussed in other posts in this forum. Infuriating, illegal, and many other negative adjectives, but you probably don't want to risk it. If you buy it you'll be better off not hoarding the registration code.

  10. Companies taking totally illegal actions to see if they can get away with it is nothing rare. Then if they get sued they can backtrack, but they are counting on the fact that bringing a lawsuit is a pain in the rear, and people won't do it for small gains (small claims courts exist to make these lawsuits simpler but they are still a chore). Sometimes companies get punished through punitive damages and/or class action lawsuits, although often the ones making big money in these lawsuits are the lawyers and not the consumers. If it can be shown in court that they did know that their actions were illegal but they still went ahead (e.g., they were receiving emails warning them of the illegality of their action but they still proceeded with it) there would probably be bigger damages.

  11. $16.80 with code GROUP

    After registration, my corresponding bundle upgrade prices went down by $37

    Very nice deal!
