I thought The Resonator wasn't in the previous Total Studio MAX Bundle because the Samples were owned by someone else.

I think the samples belong to Impact Soundworks, but they may include it in Total Studio 4 Max.  I'm just speculating...so who knows...

I am no stranger to speculation myself, so I appreciate your post.   BTW, this was from less than a year ago:

Don't count on The Resonator and the new T-RackS TASCAM Tape Collection (nor its single processors) being added any time soon. 

  but TS 3.5 MAX included:

Tape Machine 24
Tape Machine 80
Tape Machine 99
Tape Machine 440

TEAC A-6100 MKII
TEAC A-3340S
TASCAM 388
TASCAM PORTA ONE

So, as you said, who knows?

The Resonator was developed by Tracy Collins over at Indiginus. There is also a Kontakt version available but SampleTank adds the built in strumming and pattern engine which is really nice for this title.

@cclarry, don’t forget the new FAME Studio reverb and Tascam emulations could also be included

That's right...it's Indiginus....

Fame was included in TS Max 3.5 Simeon, as were the Teac/Tascams

I picked up the Kontakt version of the Resonator by Tracy at Indiginus. I'm not really enthused about the strumming and pattern engine in SampleTank 4, although the instruments and samples themselves can be quite nice!

I only had Total Studio 2 Max . To make things more complicated I bought several items that are included in 3.5 MAX, so my advantage is not HUGE in going from 2 to 3.5, especially since I will likely pick up a bunch of the Syntronic synths I don't have in the GB.

Wondering though if I bought 3.5 how much of a discount that will give me when 4 comes out?

Not sure is this is accurate on Musician's friend. It's 3.5 MAX download HERE

Should I jump on this to get 4 MAX for less later @cclarry? I think it has MODO 1.5 which is nice. I already have ST4 MAX so not much to gain there. My main motivation would be to get a better upgrade price on MAX 4

Oh I think that's an upgrade from 3 MAX. 

Lowest it looks like I could get is 199.00 with 30% off for jam points.

Never mind.

Not sure if it was the best call but I moved from  2 MAX to 3.5 MAX. My best price was 153.00.

For any one considering MAX 3.5 ...look at what's included in the MAX package before you buy software separately. Of course, it's better if you already have an older version of  Total Studio MAX or can get a license transfer from someone else. Check out VERSIONS

Because I bought some items separately besides having MAX 2.  I will have double licenses on them. ARC 3, B3X, TRacks, Sunset sound reverb among others. HOWEVER I picked up other products that would have cost more than my upgrade price. All of the electric pianos, MIXBOX , all of the tape plugins and a bunch of other stuff.

In 3.5 you get Syntronik 2 but will miss those 11 synths in Syntronik 2 MAX. Meaning if you want them all don't ignore the GB unless you want to wait for 4.0. You get MODO drums and MODO Bass 1.5.  I had an older version of MODO bass. I can wait for 2.0 among the other things they will likely add to the future version of Total Studio MAX 4.

If future pricing is anything like present pricing going from 3.5 to 4 would be in the 99.00  range and hopefully include those things cclarry mentioned.

.......Oh and you need 490 gb on a fast drive. Not sure how this would work on a 5400 rpm. 'Might' be ok if the drive was dedicated only to MAX. Not sure.

I'm now on TS MAX 3.5 and I've decided to just live with each TS MAX upgrade from here on and not try to run after ever group buy or BOGO from IK. Simples.

Yep...I only entered THIS group buy to help out the numbers...not that my measly one means a lot...but help is help,
despite really not caring about getting the 11 synths that I don't use...I mean....have....

Obviously it's too late for you, but for anybody else...

The best deal on Total Studio is after a new version comes out and then goes on sale.  You will have to pay $$ (maybe $99 or more) to upgrade to TS4, but you might have been able to do the upgrade for around the same price.

But it's totally cool.  You can start enjoying the software right now and there's a value in that.

Don't forget that IK allows you to resell licenses.  All the individual licenses you purchased after TS 2 and before TS 3.5 you can sell.

I don't know, but I think that TS 4 is likely to come out around BF, like TS 3.5 did.    IMHO, they need to sweeten the deal a little bit more to make sure more people upgrade.

So I'm thinking there will be some more T-RackS/AmpliTube processors coming before then, and maybe a new instrument or two.  They might come out with Mixbus 2.

We'd likely need one more flagship full version update in there before v4 drops.

I KNEW I should have waited before getting into the SYN2GB.  :-(

That's the opposite of what I was saying.  Flagships are things like AmpliTube, T-RacKS, SampleTank.  MODO BASS 2 is not going to trigger TS4 coming out.

Thanks for sharing that info, Peter. 
I wonder, as some of us have most of IK’s software, would there be a way to get into Total Studio Max while taking into account everything we already own? 
Also, would like to see upgrades to Total Studio Max payable with Gear Credits.
