You have 30 days after the GB ends to make your selections.

Yes, but if the GB ends tomorow, then is it 30 days from Oct 16th or is it based on the "official"  revised end, i.e. 30 days from Oct 31st?

What makes you think it will end tomorrow?  Are you saying that once 25,000 registered products are reached, there can be no more registering of products?  Is that how Group Buys work?

Quote

HOW TO JOIN THIS GROUP BUY?
From August 5 through October 31 2021, simply purchase and register any of the qualifying products from our online store, IK authorized resellers or from the Custom Shop and get your choice of [X] other qualifying products of equal or lesser value (limited to software only). 

Quote

Promotion is valid from August 5, 2021 through October 31, 2021.

Quote

Date of registration is decisive - The purchased product must be registered between August 5, 2021 and October 31, 2021.

So, is it true that anyone can now get on board with getting 24 free from the list by buying one qualifying item (or can get 24 more by buying a second, or third, or fourth . . . item)? 

You get 24 more each time you buy in, at the level you buy into.

my understanding of the wording is, the GB ends Oct 31. it will be interesting to see how high the count will be Oct 31.

 

43 to go

If you have a calibration mic, Arc3 is a good choice. It may not be as exciting as other plugins, but will help every day! My sound is completly transformed with it. Everything is clearer since it takes a lot out of the low end in a small bedroom studio. I should say, it twkes out low end muddinesss that hides clarity and details. As usual: YMMV!

I'm a little bit confused: How to qualify for the promotion. Purchase any of the qualifying products from the IK Online Store, Custom Shop or IK authorized resellers.

So I have bought 150 Gear credits at first and I want to purchase Electromagnetik as my qualifying product. But how to do that?

There is no option for paying with GC in IK online store and Electromagnetik is not available in Custom shop app ..

Am I miss something?

I have one slot left . I find your answer a better choice than just grabbing another plug I may or may not use .

Where does one get a calibration mic ? 

Kenny

Your best bet is probably direct from IK:

https://www.ikmultimedia.com/products/arcmic/

Arc does support other calibration mics, but good ones are more like a $100. Theirs will be cheaper especially if you have jam points. You can also use that mic witn mic room which is a big plus since when the measurement is done it gives other uses to the mic.

I was able to use a calibration mic I already owned, which was very nice.

I don't have a room. I work in a concrete basement. So an Arc would do me no good. But I am in the process of building a room. I have one wall done and installed. Need to do 3 more walls and a door. So I was debating picking this up and then a separate MEMS mic. The the reality is, I am mostly a player.. not an engineer. So just not sure if I will ever really make use of it.

 

(I finally wrapping up my unversity degree in December and will now have all the time in the world to do the walls. never going to skule again!)

from IKM.. with Jams it would be $100 for me. as the Mic is $50 and the shipping is another $45 😞
