    Okay, I will address this (and to be clear, I do agree with a lot of what you said above) . I think it would be very hard not to engage when someone makes negative comments about you and the company you represent, especially if you are passionate and care about your reputation. I know I would have a problem letting a detractor have the last word. I really don't feel that Peter was exploiting the debate. Okay, subscribing was maybe the wrong word mainly because the conspiracy did not exist yet. But I did not and still do not feel that Peter's motives for responding to JT was in order to get more publicity, bad or good. To be honest, this fact was not in my field of vision. The tendancy of us humans is to focus on the negatives, and so no matter how many positive things have been said in the past, it is the negative that sticks out. So it is good you pointed out you past responses. Your point about support in the forum is well taken. It is appropriate for issues to be highlighted when discussing a product. But I don't think we should be treating this like a support forum and demanding responses and solutions to our issues. I know it is frustrating, especially if official channels are not working. Having said that, I do appreciate knowing that I am not alone in my issues and have appreciated the solutions others have come up with in the past.

    Thanks for the clarification. The ability to add your own patterns could be a feature request for MODO Bass and MODO Drums for that matter.

    Why is this an issue? Toontracks' whole strategy is based on this premise. You don't see people complaining that they have to pay for new instruments or patterns and can't add their own patterns to EZBass, or EZKeys.

    Some of your points are valid, especially wrt the issue with some of the SYN2 instruments having misformed zip files. Actually I am only aware of one instrument, the Syner-V. However, Peter was probably going off what support had told him. And as frustrating as this may be, this is not a support forum. But I think you are off base here with the good-cop-bad-cop accusation. I think you are subscribing to a conspiracy that does not exist. I also disagree with the dictum that there is no such thing as bad news, especially in this case. Good public relations is important and Peter has done a damn fine job of that over the years. He has been patient many times when false accusations have been flung his way and has tried to de-esecalate situations with humour do varying degrees of success. I really cannot see him resorting to tactics that you are ascribing to him.
  5. That is my question too. To put it in simpler terms, does Modo Drum 1.0+ Modo Drum 1.5 SE=Modo Drum 1.5 Full?
  6. Standard edition is $30. UDS Edition is $60.

    Works fine with my ASIO driver for UMC202HD.
  8. Peter said this on the VI-Control thread: As an additional incentive, not only will the current Syntronik 2 MAX multis be unlocked for all participants once the group buy reaches 3,000+ participants but we just added over 100 NEW Syntronik 2 MAX multis which will also be unlocked at 3,000+ participants. So no need to worry about sourcing the older multis if we reach the goal. They will be included.
  9. I only made the point, because I am in the same boat as you, two free plus the buy-in and I only have 29. My fear was that I had doubled-up and it took me a bit to figure out that I indeed had chosen okay. I was not trying to be snarky. Well, maybe a bit.
  10. I think that should be 4 more freebies. It is at 26 freebies now, plus the two you already had, plus the one to get you into the GB. That is 29. Last I checked, 33-29=4.
  11. That is what I was afraid of.
  12. One thing I am not sure of, if the group buy does not reach the top, we may not get the multis even if we own all the synths. I already had two S2 synths before the group buy so I really only need four more synths to max out everything. But I don't think that guarantees me access to the multis.
  13. This is exactly my experience. All the V1 synths that I upgraded to V2 just downloaded and installed the V2 content. What I described above is what happened when I did a (unnecessary) "Reinstall Library" as suggested by "Release" after I had already installed the V2 content. The behaviour of the "Reinstall Library" actually seems like a bit of a bug to me.
  14. These look like the same drumkits that were offered by AnyDayLong about a year ago. He disappeared, and IIRC, it was over copyright issues.

    Modo Bass 2 SE only has four bass models. So even with SE you would still be missing four.

    The comparison chart for Modo Bass 2 state that CS has no fretless capability and a reduced number of patterns. Presumably if you bought at least SE, you could use the fretless capability with any standard bass including the original 14 bass models. But considering Syntronik 2 and the wave sets feature, that may not be the case.
  17. I did. I am not talking about the new Syntronik 2 synths; I am talking about the Syntronik 1 synths with the Syntronik 2 additions. I too had the 2 CS version and S1 Deluxe before the GB and had to do what you did for the new S2 synths that I got with the GB. But any S1 synth I already had installed did not need to download anything except the additional S2 content. Most of my S1 content download has expired so there is no way I can "reinstall" unless I pay the $10 fee to redownload all the S1 sounds. It does not make sense for IKM to required you to download additional S1 content that was expired to make S2 presets work. Edit: I did what you suggested for Syntronic 2 M-Poly, ie selected "Reinstall Library". What it did was download the S1 sounds again, which I had already downloaded and installed, as well as the S2 content. Not only that, it installed the sound content in a different location from the original location. The sound content for M-Poly was already in my SampleTank 3\Samples\ folder but but doing a reinstall installed the sound content in my Syntronik 2\Samples folder as well. It also installed the instrument files for S1 in Syntronik 2\Instruments\Factory. I already had them in SampleTank 3\InstrumentsFactory. So performing a "Reinstall Library" actually doubled the size sound content for M-Poly with duplicate files.
  18. Syntronik 2 synths are enhanced. There are additional version 2 presets that can make use of the new features in Syntronic 2 like wave sets. Most of the V2 updates for V1 synths have been less than 200MB for me for any V1 synth I already had installed.

    JT Music seems to be very bitter that he bought Modo Drums at a discount and then didn't get a free upgrade to the next version when it came out soon after. That has been his song since then whenever he talks about IKM. I think what he was actually saying in this rant was that when Modo Bass 2.0 comes out, users will have to pay $149 again for the upgrade. I think what he wants to see is a free upgrade to the 2.0 engine and then have a custom shop to be able to purchase the additional instruments added to 2.0.

    Will you drop it already? Nobody around here cares about you little rants. You have said your piece; got your message out; now move on.
  21. You should be able to find the file in the folder specified in the IK Product Manager Download Folder settings. Should not be hard to find at all unless it was not downloaded in the first place.
  22. It should already be downloaded!
  23. Do you have SYN2_Syner-V_Part_4.zip? It should be in your IKM Product Manager download folder. You can just double click on the zip file to see the contents. We can take this discussion offline too via DM so we do not fill up this topic with support help.
  24. It sounds like the sounds for Syner-V did not get installed correctly. The specific pak for the file above is contained in SYN2_Syner-V_Part_4.zip. Are you on a PC or a MAC?
