  1. Yes, for the past two years if you spent £299 in their shop black friday weekend you got a special free kontakt library, which was only available that weekend and not available to purchase on its own. Anyone have these and can say whether they are generally useful or is it mostly FOMO? 2019 - aperture strings - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NiMSUeZpS5g 2020 - aperture orchestra - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gQkKS8MF-Vs
  2. "sounds nice, I wonder how much a piano like that costs? Let's check Yamaha" 😳
  3. Is it still the case that all Slate Drums, expansions and Trigger licenses are perpetual? IIRC they're confusingly not in "All" Access, but some third-party products are. Someone mentioned to me that "Slate Digital" and "Steven Slate Drums" are separate or something?
  4. Correct, expansions for any of toontrack's products contain additional instruments/sounds, additional midi, or both, and will require the main product "engine" to run. The base products are usable without any expansions, but that doesn't help if you want Gospel. You'd need EZBass plus Gospel EBX.
  5. this is likely to expire within hours, but saw one thing of interest for superior drummer users: Decades, Death&Darkness, and Rock Foundry SDXes are $89, and you get a few dollars back in loyalty credit. You could apply a $10 coupon to make them $76. Some but not all older SDXes are that price as well. Older SDXes will be on sale for around $100 during November but these three are excluded from that. For the first two I wonder if they accidentally marked the wrong ones down. Larry posted the Toontrack november deals; the coupon here for ezbass or ezdrummer 2 might beat toontrack's offer, which is just bonus EZX and bass midi for those two. Or, since you get the bonus stuff when registering, you can keep the serial until Toontrack's sales start and you might get the discount today and the free item tomorrow? It is also possible resellers will discount further during November, never any guarantees in life especially with respect to taxes or music software sales.
  6. Thanks Larry! I have been looking for ezbass recently so here are some ideas from seeing toontrack prices this week. These prices are usd-centric, sorry for those converting twice. First, a joke: 13 ezx exclusions and 7 sdx exclusions, and everything from the last two years is at full price, is this in partnership with plugin alliance? Second, only good for today, but some of these can combine with the $20 bestservice.com pumpkin code. EZDrummer2 and EZBass are each $149-$20 coupon and you get $5 in loyalty credits. From the original post, if we hold off on registering until tomorrow, ezdrummer gets you a free ezx and ezbass gets you a free midi pack? The versions of each product bundled with expansions are not the best deal in November due to the freebies. If someone wanted EBXes, bestservice has a 3-pack that would be $130 with the pumpkin code today. EZXs: €41 is worth $47 for the discounted packs. If that is what they end up being at resellers, then there is a 3-pack at Thomann for $145, a few dollars more but then you can select even the excluded ones. SDXs: €89 is worth $103, which is around the usual sale price for these iirc?
  7. exclusions list is the same as round 1, including Gig Performer 4 being excluded from the start
  8. I picked up EW Hollywood Strings Gold a few years ago on sale. That's all I own. My upgrade price to full orchestra, Opus Edition, everything... is $295? And someone who purchased Hollywood Orchestra Diamond at full price has that same upgrade price... Feels weird to be on the other side of discriminative pricing for new vs repeat users for once. Have Spitfire BBC core but this is tempting.
  9. nice, these are the APIs. this matches the intro price and last black friday. Pink3 was -70% off = €60, black friday 2019, but no guarantee that will ever come up again. stacks with any personal loyalty discounts
  10. I like how the 'buy' buttons are labeled SAVE NOW.
  11. thanks! That's the best ebx expansion price against other retails, it seems, even before the bonus coins. The main EzBass software with no extra expansions is also brought down to that same $129 price with the coupon. I wonder what the odds the main software will get a better sale at black friday... For other toontrack stuff, it looks like ezdrum/keys generic midi 6-packs and ezx 3-packs are less expensive other places, like thomann, even with the pumpkin code.
  12. The 3-pack "EZX Value Pack" makes these around $49 per ezx at thomann or just over that at best service with the pumpkin codes. But you need to be interested in 3 of them or be ok to hold onto unregistered codes.
  13. thanks, price made it to sweetwater too https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/SSLLMCplus-e--solid-state-logic-ssl-lmc-compressor-plug-in
  14. watching the video now but I'd have taken whatever that isn't moving to a subscription service Edit with video summary to not have three posts: four omnisphere 2 expansions they include sounds, patches, and each includes two new FX which can be installed and used without the sounds only available from https://shop.sonicextensions.com/ the "deal" is perpetual: buy 2 get 20% off, buy 3+ get 30% off all four expansions available are $149 each doing the math with the discount it's: 1 for 150 (150 ea), 2 for 240 (120 ea), 3 for 315 (105 ea), 4 for 420 (105 ea) from FAQ, licenses can only be transferred along with Omnisphere. and as I recall there are some restrictions there but I don't do much plugin reselling/transferring.
