  1. For anyone interested in the IK Shipwreck Piano anyway. It's usually $49.99. Now $9.99 (or $6.99 if you have 3 Jam points to use, as 3 is all they'll let you use for this). https://www.ikmultimedia.com/products/stshipwreckpiano/?pkey=sampletank-sounds-cinekinetik-shipwreck-piano
  2. B&H has always been a good place to buy from for me. I bought the 2tb sn850x from them for $112.99 during this sale, and later that morning I noticed they dropped their price on that to $99 after I already paid. So I emailed them asking if they could do a price adjustment/refund down to $99 post sale, but the B&H guy said he could do one better and adjusted my price down to $89, because I hadn't seen it but while I was emailing him they had lowered their price even further from $99 to $89. Maybe other stores do that too but it was done real easily through B&H who gave an even better deal than I asked for. Also scored two 4tb sn850x from Best Buy @ $229/ea. If anyone ever does a better price on that 4tb drive, good on whoever gets *that* deal.
  3. Now's not the time to buy. Like, I keep getting an email alert that Sospiro Strings is on sale for ~$36, but I know it's sold for ~$15 before
  4.

  5. Like IK's Shipwreck Piano. A piano with a cinematic pad layer on top of the notes
  6. Dang, hate to see this one falling behind. But like a lot of people I have just about everything I want from here, and I have a lot. You working on any new stuff @Greg Schlaepfer?
  7. Are you using it as a daily driver or for bulk/backup storage in an external enclosure? You can take the warranty that Crucial gives it (5 yrs) and measure that against what the CrystalDiskInfo utility tells you about the drive, and in that way you can essentially see where you are at any given time in the hard drive's 'guaranteed' lifespan. With ssds the jury's still out on whether or not they're good for bulk storage where the hd doesn't get powered on often. You can read about it but essentially ssds will start to deteriorate just by virtue of existing especially if they're sitting on a shelf with data on them and not getting powered on often. As they deteriorate the data on them could get lost/corrupted. If the drive is inside your PC that gets powered on frequently I would just check CrystalDiskInfo now and then to see where you are within the projected lifespan that Crucial gives it anyway, and be backing up your system regularly which is good practice anyway. I personally don't have the same confidence in the longevity of ssds that I do for spin drives, though I don't use spin drives at all anymore. https://youtu.be/HBcJD9rUNRo
  8. Is it just me or did they change the orange back to the original?
  9. Point is brother you brought the Fluffy Audio guy out to have a public showdown w/ you on two separate forums over something trivial in the grand scheme, but you drew it out far beyond the scope of ridiculousness, posting "interminable screeds" (as one put it) of having been so wronged, to the point where if a reader didn't know any better they'd think your house burned down, and virtually everyone who commented on that thread told you as much. I'm saying that you commenting now re Bandlab on how people are 'ranting' and should 'move on' comes off as rich, if not hypocritical, condescending and just generally lacking humility. Thanks for editing down this post of yours I'm responding to, as it was initially needlessly long and rehashy. Lol aight, I'll agree to move on from this though and won't comment further on what I wrote beyond this post. That high horse deal of yours just gets old is all brother. I mean that respectfully too, not attacking you. I'll buy the new Cakewalk as it's the only daw I really care about. Just do us a solid BandLab and don't charge half a grand.
  10. Lol, not for nothing but in all fairness brother it's kind of funny to see you out here talking about 'perceived injustices' and whether or not someone was wronged and telling people to "move on" after that whole drawn out public showdown between you and the Fluffy Audio guy on VI Control as well as here, over what most felt was nothing.. Lol I'm just busting your b@11s but you gotta see the irony, or whatever it is, there lol
  11. That'd be the legal side of it. But one could argue that there was still a moral obligation there when Meng slammed that home when he himself said: "Our steadfast goal is that former SONAR owners (of all versions) will not need to spend any money to cross-over/cross-grade to the future flagship product" He was obviously overly optimistic there, and of course no expressed promise was made there, but he said what he said and one could argue that BandLab, in soon charging for their future flagship, is now not standing by their word, or at least the "steadfast goal" they set for themselves and us. I don't feel like BandLab owes me for the Lifetime Updates I bought. For the rec I'm not so much pissed at the lost money as I am at being taken by Gibson's final Cakewalk grift - something Gibson pulled knowing that ultimately they wouldn't be honoring it for long. And with Meng coming in and applying sav to that burn w/ that "steadfast goal".. we can understand how one could be pissed at BandLab right now. I'm not. I got way worse s#!t going down in my life to care. But probably no one should buy (into) anymore 'Lifetime' or 'Steadfast Goal' bs, and that is what that is.
  12. What price would everyone think is reasonable then for the new Cakewalk flagship? What's the most you'd pay? Would you subscribe?
