  1. No problem. It was just that some people might have thought they could buy Chromophone and get Lounge Lizard and Strum for free, for example.
  2. My story for my early interest in electronic music echoes yours almost completely. I would also add Larry Fast/Synergy and the Windham Hill release Soul of the Machine. And of course, Manheim Steamroller.
  3. I would like to dedicate my 1000th post on the CW forum to all who have made this forum the best place to hang out on the Internet. First and foremost, to King Larry, without whom our wallets would be fuller and our hard drives emptier. Your tireless work is unequalled. To Fleer, who more than not, has pushed me over the edge when I was undecided about making a purchase. To Bapu, whose post count and Toontrack collection is something to which we can only dream of aspiring. To Tiger the Frog, whose window into the past of composing for film are both inspiring and entertaining. To Simeon, whose playing is so effortless, that I have made purchases based on his videos only to realize that you actually need talent to make the plugins sound as good as Simeon can make them. And to countless others whose presence here have provided hours of entertainment, good advice, and a real sense of community.
  4. Any idea how the tribute banks compare to the SynthMaster ones? Some of the same sound designers did both.
  5. Were you logged into your account and do you already own Into? Just curious.
  6. This is a bit misleading. It is not buy one plugin, get two plugins free. It is buy one plugin and get Multiphonics and one Soundpack free. Not that I really care. I already have all AAS's plugins.
  7. So looks like the offer might still be good.
  8. IIRC, you had to be logged into your account and have already purchased Analog Labs Intro to see the $39 upgrade. However according to a Reddit post, the offer expired January 31. Otoh, this is what I see when I go to https://www.arturia.com/analoglabintro-upgrade
  9. I can't comment on the GUI because I haven't played with it yet. However I only needed to authorize it once in the iZotope Product Portal. And it loaded in Cubase fine with no additional authorizations required. I used the iZotope authorization not iLok. Do you have a nonstandard installatiion?
  10. I already had everything in that bundle except Stutter Edit 2. I almost bought the bundle last month for $49 just to get SE2, because it was cheaper than buying SE2 on its own. Now I was able to buy SE2 for $10. Glad I waited.
  11. Wow! Instabuy. Got 1. Been waiting for a great deal on 2 for a long while now!
  12. I can't find any info on this at all. Google has let me down. Dare I try Bing?
  13. That happened to me. I contacted them as soon as it was auto renewed. They cancelled my subscription and refunded my money.
  14. Note that even if you have bought into the GB, you can still bump up the numbers by buying one of the newer releases such as Fractionate, and MIDI Mod.
  15. Are you going to do a live stream of you purchasing Pathfinder Cello?
  16. I don't think you actually needed to purchase CM #296. The CM Plugin Suite PC Instruments I downloaded that contained Thorn was from the filesilo link for CM#305. I also tried the link in the ZIP file for faster download (it downloaded a file called Legacy CM Plugin Suite PC Instruments.zip), and it too contained the PC version of Thorn. Interestingly enough, the CM#305 filesilo link points to the download for CM#296. You are correct that the standalone download for Thorn only contains the Mac version. Something is a bit messed up for sure.
  17. I have all the Myst games except the remake on GOG too. I just finished Obduction last year and thoroughly enjoyed it. I borrowed a friends HTC Vive to try VR but the 3D experience did not really do it for me. For some reason, I much preferred viewing the Obduction world through my 2D monitor.
  18. I am not sure I understand. Are you saying you unzipped the version from the CM Plugin Suite PC Instruments.zip and it was the Mac version? I downloaded it yesterday and it was definitely the PC version. It contained a file called ThornSetup_100.exe. So unless Macs are now using exe's... The CM version was what actually enticed me to buy Thorn from Dmitry before he went with PA. I have subsequently gotten the PA version as well the recently released Tantra 2. As Fleer would say, it is goud stewf.
  19. It is definitely worth the price of admission.
  20. Thorn CM is still available in the CM Plugin Suite PC Instruments though. It is just not a separate download for PC.
  21. Yes. I was hoping this bundle included the remake. Sadly, it doesn't.
  22. Well, I won't agree to that. But I will make this promise to you. I won't respond to you on this topic again in this or in future threads. However, I do invite you to participate in other topics. Since you really are someone who loves music tech, I am sure you have much more to offer than just perspectives on Apple hardware and software.
  23. Okay. So you ignore me, then un-ignore me to respond and then ignore me again. I actually don't like using ignore. I feel all voices deserve to be heard even if I don't agree with them. Who knows, I may even learn something from a contrary opinion, and even change my own opinion. I think too many people live in echo chambers and are too quick to take offence when someone offer an opposing view. Hugh, I am not trying to be passive aggressive but maybe that is my tendency. Your words sounded angry to me, or at least it seemed you were pissed off with me. My apology was sincere. And maybe even this statement could be considered passive aggressive. I don't know. This has spiraled away from the original topic into popcorn territory. I am fine to let it go.
  24. Point taken about over the top blanket statements. You did see my response to Paul_in_wales though, right? I am not sure of the point of the video.
  25. Yup. That is what I meant to say. It may be a non-issue, because by that time, hopefully you will have found alternatives or discovered you did not need those plugins after all.
