50% off site-wide.  New release MIDI tools "Pilot Plugins"

Wonder how the new Pilot Plugins compares to the CP Epic suite (which I own)?

From a brief look at their videos these seem to be more like the recent Feelyoursound generators which I have and like (Trance Engine, Chillout Engine, HouseEngine). 

Can't see anything about a crossgrade price for existing CPE owners.

Yeah- It is kind of odd that it overlaps Epic suite.  Full disclosure- I am a beta tester for Pilot.  Actually I thought it was going to be free for Epic owners, but maybe I was mistakenly divining that from the beta forum.  Beta contributors also got NFR's.  If the price is going to be $99 (from site), that is way too much.  Not so sure about the $49 sale price TBH. I don't know if you bought Epic on release, but it was rushed out IMHO.  They did make a lot of fixes/additions after release.  Suspect similar from Pilot.  I like it and have had fun with it.   I think your comparison to the Feelyoursound offerings is spot-on.  I own Hauke's original offerings Sundog & Chord Potion, but not the genre tuned later releases, however I have demoed them.

Yes but the catch there is you get a license to sell the generated MIDI as packs.  I think the intro price is $29 for personal use- commercial even, but for the created musical work, not MIDI packs.

Thanks for sharing your insights, Brian. That's funny as I am a beta tester for Hauke :) (and I also have Sundog and Chordpotion).

I bought Epic when it was released and have installed all the updates since then, including the latest which came with a free artist preset pack (by Rosbeh). 

It's good to have choices; we certainly have plenty of those these days!

Yes, it's what Brian said; the expensive version allows you to batch-create MIDI files and sell them, whereas the cheap version only allows you to use them in your own commercial releases (but not to re-sell the MIDI files).

Makes more sense.  Thanks. I’m a wanna be pro so I usually check out price of those versions first haha

pilot plugins should be free for epic users, it seems to do same thing and overlaps, obviously they try to milk it and for $49 not worth it

Seem weird to try and sell me a subset of something I already own.
