    Put it to you this way @Doug Rintoul .. I really dont mind in general what is asked BUT in this case it was very specifically a Q about something not working in STUDIO 1 .. completely unrelated to Cakewalk which is what these forums are generally about, so unless some here also use Studio 1 AND Insta composer then his Q was never going to be answered

    So I am having an issue with the woocommerce plugin in Wordpress .. I cannot figure out how to sort a multi size garment product :D



    I actually think you will find there are more non-Cakewalk users in the Deals forum than CW users.

    I know your woocommerce comment was meant as a joke, but it is not like Ted's question was completely out of the blue.

    Anyway, I have said my piece. Have at 'er.

    Peace out.

    Until they resolve this, you can minimize the agravation by simply rolling back to the previous version. 5.1.1 didn't include the try & buy integration so this screen is not in it. Just go to your product page (not the procuct manager) ann under your puschase there is a tab called 'past releases'. Just install 5.1.1 over what you currently got and you should be good to go.

    This is what I did too. The current version of Amp5 is a real mess.

    Ok all that being said. Teds Q was specifically about Presonus Studio 1 DAW. The best place for such a Q .. purely to gain more response from actual Studio 1 users .. is surely over at a Studio 1 forum? Unless we have a huge Studio 1 userbase here?

    Asking here in a subset section of another DAWs forum definitely guarantees a far lower Studio 1 userbase seeing the question?

    BTW I don't see any preamble for the deals sub section? I do see one for the Coffee House section:polite

    This is an inclusive discussion area, intended to promote music-related discussions that do not pertain specifically to Cakewalk software. Users of all experience levels and backgrounds can ask questions and share knowledge. By making your posts music-related, you help preserve the quality of these discussions.

    I am assuming and maybe wrong that Music related for Coffee house is about Music in general rather than troubleshooting specific software? 

    I agree with this completely. Ted's question would have had a better chance of getting answered in a S1 specific forum or the InstaComposer thread.  

    I assumed that because the Deals forum was a sub forum  of the Coffee House forum, that the CH forum rules applied to the Deals forum as well. What I reacted to initially was the idea that because Ted question did not relate to specifically to Cakewalk, it did not belong here. I would have been fine if people had said that Ted would be better served asking his question in the InstaComposer thread or an S1 forum.

    The point is, I appreciate the community here. I appreciate the fact that for the most part that people are much more forgiving and willing to go with the flow rather than be sticklers for rules. I actually enjoy the off topic threads in the Deals forum. Think of what we would loose if we started enforcing the rules and made the Deals forum only about deals.

    Did anyone ever find an easier solution to unlocking all of the Amplitude models and  Sampletank extensions that didn't involve entering every single freebie's serial number into the Authorization Manager? That's what I've had to do so far, but after picking the rest of my freebies I'm wondering if there are any alternatives... 

    I just used the Product Manager to authorize and download my SampleTank freebies. I think I had to unauthorize and reauthorize SampleTank itself, and then all my freebies were authorized as well. The Ampltube models were unlocked by restoring my gear in the most recent Custom Shop.

    Yeah, except for the fact the post has nothing to do with a deal and started a thread about it, instead of a comment related to the actual instacomposer deal thread that is alive and well.  

    We bring out the pitch forks for duplicate deal threads, this kind of thread shouldn't be encouraged in this area - but respectivly moved elsewhere.

    While it is a sub forum under the Coffee House, many of us have complained about that status and placement.  King Larry and his loyal followers should have their own section.

    Well...looking at the first page of the Deals forum, King Larry himself posted about Pink Floyd - The Reunion, there is a first looks post, a couple of software update announcements, and a couple of other posts that have nothing  to do with deals. Like I said, things are pretty fluid around here.

    @Ted Haber  You do realise this is CAKEWALK by BANDLAB DAW forum and not Studio One???

    In CW the drag and drop works just fine

    The Deals forum is actually a sub forum of the Coffee House forum which has this preamble:

    This is an inclusive discussion area, intended to promote music-related discussions that do not pertain specifically to Cakewalk software. Users of all experience levels and backgrounds can ask questions and share knowledge. By making your posts music-related, you help preserve the quality of these discussions.

    So @Ted Haber 's question is fine. Except that it is not really a deal so might have been better for Ted to post it in the Coffee House forum itself. But because the InstaComposer deal was posted here, more people might look at Ted's message. We are pretty fluid with the rules here, I think.

  7. 25314 registrations have been reached so far in the GB. I wonder how high it will go? I also wonder how many actual people that number represents. And I wonder how many new customers this GB has brought into the IKM fold. I am sure Peter and team are crunching those numbers now. From this user's perspective, this GB has been a resounding success, not only from the all new toys I have to play with, but also from the community that has been built up around the group buy. Not to mention that my post count has increase dramatically because there was so much to talk about.

    Just saying about waveshell. It must be a good practice because Studio One uses it too lol!

    Why don’t I hear complaints about the Studio One shell?

    Oh, I don't know. Maybe because Studio One plugins are not widely used outside the Studio One environment? Maybe because Studio One plugins are still at version 1? Maybe because there aren't V9, V10, V11, V12, and V13 Studio One shell files and the VSTs don't move from one shell file to another when they are upgraded?

    Could someone confirm that if I pay €149.99 for Electromagnetik or Cinekinetik collection it will give me the freebies in the €200 tier?

    And if I buy two qualifying products at two different price levels I will get twice the freebies but half of those freebies will be of lesser value than the other half?

    Peter has stated that the Electromagnetik or Cinekinetik collections will only get you in at the $149.99 level. The $50 savings comes from buying the bundle as opposed to buying each library in the bundle separately. 

    Your second statement is correct.

  10. @Peter - IK Multimedia I am pretty sure there is an error in the latest mailing from IKM that you might want to check out. The mailing is talking about the T-Racks tape machine collection and how if you buy a tape machine from it, you can get 24 other software titles. See if you can spot the problem with following:



    I don't think that is suppose to say TASCAM TAPE COLLECTION, unless you are adding it as a qualifying product.

    I didn't hit anything yet, because I don't celebrate until we are there.  To be 100% serious we should have been there by now.  This is an insane deal and 25,000 people isn't really that huge a number to be honest.  I'm not mad, just disappointed :)  OK that last part wasn't 100% serious.  Just about 75% serious.

    We are very grateful that you stuck it out and continued to push us to bigger and better things. I was going to sit this one out but ended up quintuple dipping. It has actually saved me some money because when I see a sale on something that I might be interested in, I tell myself, "Naw. You have so many IKM things to check out, You don't have time for this too." I wonder how long that will last?

    Don't want to make more fuss over this, but he did say:

    Ya,  I am probably overreacting. I just get tired of people thinking that because they do not have any problems, other shouldn't either.
