  1. Hi Jan, if this is referring to Volume, that's probably around 1/3 of their plugins and not a complete softube collection. See "what's included" here https://www.softube.com/products/volume-5 imo still very useful, but for instance: it has two of the smaller Weiss plugins but not the main unit, no Chandler, no Empirical Labs for the other question, I think you might keep the other licenses, but also if I recall correctly softube stuff has 3 ilok activations.
  2. Is everyone getting these via email? I have over 100, since the bx_tuner days, but only received the full $799 offer. I might have lapsed out of the loyalty tiers though, I'm back at the $25 one.
  3. thanks! That would explain it. I'm not at 50%... maybe tomorrow's Black Friday sales will do it
  4. thanks for the black friday notice! no loyalty mail here though. Maybe they go out in waves or if I haven't met some threshold, but I am fairly invested in AA. I'm also not a beta tester if that matters.
  5. They're baaaaaack... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QOkSvLqkafU
  6. I am not complaining, just noting, and this may be obvious: this also does not include plugins for sale on that page from the sibling companies NI and iZotope, and also does not include the Line6 plugin on temporary sale.
  7. I think my ec300 is from this promotion and it looks like a standard iLok license supporting either cloud or a hardware key... when you try to activate it, is this erroring out or is the option unavailable? What happens if you right-click the item in iLok manager? Regarding transferring, it looks like it's enabled for that license and again iirc McDSP does allow transfers, however, keep in mind that PACE charges $25 per license transfer. Also, McDSP moved to v7 of their plugins which is a paid upgrade. Probably optional for Windows users but, a third iirc, they gated Apple Silicon compatibility behind the upgrade, so Mac users might want to wait for a promotion on v7.
  8. Comparison page: https://www.native-instruments.com/en/products/komplete/bundles/komplete-14-standard/compare/ ha, they come with PA vouchers! 1, 2, or 3 "any plugin $29.99"
  9. probably skipping at least at launch, but congratulations to NI. big fan of this being a normal perpetual release and not launched alongside, or replaced by, a subscription. The inclusion of Ozone and some good PA stuff could be useful, but likely users especially at the ultimate tier are already invested with PA and Izotope directly? Nothing new regarding native Apple M1/M2 compatibility? I'm surprised some of the biggest players here don't have their product lines updated to native yet. I understand it can be a lot of work especially if there are legacy libraries or assembly code, but Apple set a clock for two years back in June 2020... notably Kontakt 6 did move already and that's probably the important one for most users.
  10. for mac users: at this time Iris 2 has no planned support for M1 native. https://support.izotope.com/hc/en-us/articles/6658082572049-iZotope-Compatibility-with-Apple-silicon

    GOG Giveaway: Dex

    The GOG summer sale is also on. I think they are just "GOG" rather than an acronym now but it used to be called "Good Old Games" and they do a good job of making games DRM-free, compatible with new OSes, and often including some bonus material, manuals, multiple versions and the like. There was a post here a couple weeks ago where people mentioned some old games that are now on sale: The MS-DOS Epic Pinball collection from the mid-90s is $1.19. I forget who mentioned this but it could have been a joke since the modern Epic Pinball was being discussed https://www.gog.com/en/game/epic_pinball_the_complete_collection @Peter - IK Multimedia you might have mentioned the original unreal tournaments? Windows-compatible, $2 each first one https://www.gog.com/game/unreal_tournament_goty 2004 https://www.gog.com/en/game/unreal_tournament_2004_ece
  12. capitalization is as it was on the page Not a traktor user, but do not like this idea. It seems they're going the iZotope route where new features are sent to subscribers as they're developed, and bunched up in major releases for perpetual users. The sub-only features here are currently a new pattern sequencer and a maximizer from iZotope. So now we've seen NI products cross over to PA sales, and now iZotope code into NI products. Hoping NI does not make Komplete/Kontakt sub-focused. Though I can't imagine Kontakt would go too far down that route given most people use it as a platform for third-party libraries and I would think they wouldn't want to push more of them to developing their own samplers like Spitfire or Orchestral Tools. I know there is already a Komplete subscription but it's sort of off to the side.
  13. HI Craig, was this the CE edition? I'm not participating in the promo but that seems to be what APD has in stock and the $149 tier would make sense in that case. Sweetwater's may be the regular edition.
