That is true by assuming the tier will remain at 1000 each, but that is not the case.

Why is that not the case?  Every 1,000 gets you 1 freebie...you just don't get one for 25,000
participants...you WILL get the 24th freebie at 24,000.  You just won't get one AGAIN at 25,000!

But then there won't be any reason for that  home stretch rush to get that final freebie!!! As if we really needed it...

Sorry @Peter - IK Multimedia I didn't want to start another discussion about the tiers, but it seems I did! 🥴

Anyhow, I feel we are already in such crazy deal territory with where we are at, it doesn't matter that much anymore. I know I will have more than enough stuff to occupy the long Canadian winter up ahead! 👍

😀  Not necessarily, because nowhere does it say at which point the last 4 freebies will be attained - hence, the  "IK secrecy/math" snark.  I don't really care.....and it really doesn't matter.  Just sayin' it leaves room for interpretation suspense!

What else do we have to do while we wait on the next tier??   I'm just waiting on my ship to come in to get my two "buy-ins" -  Great deal regardless!

The ad says AND SO ON up until 24 Freebies, which SHOULD mean you get one for every 1,000....

NOW...I'll be the FIRST to say that IK could MESS THAT UP...they are GREAT at it...but 1 per 1,000
is what their ad SAYS....but maybe not what they "mean"

Question...I got the ARC 3 software thinking I could pick up the MEMS mic for cheap using Jam points. But shipping to Canada costs almost as much as the mic itself. I live close to the border and would normally ship it to a US address, but with the border still closed... 

Any of you other Canadians have a source for a measurement mic that won't cost an arm and a leg?

👍  That was exactly my point referring to the exchange between @Peter - IK Multimedia & @Jacques Boileau on page 93.

"And so on" is not specific to 1,000 per tier, it doesn't say 1,000 per tier specifically and it will change for 20-25.  I hope that helps clarify.

WOW....what "English" do you use?  If EVERYTHING prior says 1 per 1,000...then "AND SO ON", by ANY English language 
that I know of, means it will proceed as it is UNTIL 24 freebies are reached, making it 25 for the price of one!

Granted, Italians may not have the "same" interpretation", but the ENGLISH language is pretty darn clear...

But, as usual, IK will screw the pooch...

right  on.. now digging into the American EQ emulations.. 🙂

if this hits > 20 I am gonna be out of things to get. I will have to get an ARC3 and buy a MEMS mic.. I havent gotten into that can of worms yet because a well calibrated room is the least of my problems in life.

I ordered the following from Amazon:

Dayton Audio iMM-6 Calibrated Measurement Microphone for iPhone, iPad Tablet and Android,Black - $22.89 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00ADR2B84/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

aceyoon Trrs Extension Cable 10ft / 3m 3.5mm Male to Female 4 Pole Aux Audio Cord Headphone Car Stereo Extender with Mic for Smartphone, Tablet, Speaker - $6.98 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B093715WVJ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It's an experiment.  If it doesn't work, I have another measurement mic I can use (but not calibrated).

Sorry to interrupt your wild math-party, but in the rules they said we're getting first freebie after reaching 2000 participants. So yes, it's 25 products for the price of 1 (one paid and 24 free after reaching 25.000).

That math doesn't work based on their ad...

the first freebie would have arrived at 2,000 and therefore counting would begin at 1 when we reached 2,000
and freebies would be 1 BEHIND the 1,000 count point, but it's NOT,
and according to the ad there was 10 freebies at 10,000, 11, at 11,000, 12 at 12,000, 13 at 13,000, 14 at 14,000,
15 at 15,000, 16 at 16,000, 17 at 17,000, 18 at 18,000, 19 at 19,000 and 20 at 20,000 and then SO ON...

Notice that for every thousand there is a freebie...not "1 behind"
