Then for only $16
Now let's reach his price of $20 or €20
For €20 it is absolutely awesome!
Again at $20/€20
Let's keep on watching some other plugins at this same price of $20/€20.
And currently it is sold at only €20 instead of €30. For a few days again...
At $30/€30 you also have
$30 !!! For EXACTLY the same price you purchase
Meanwhile, back at the ''Old Free VSTi Gems From The Past'' thread ...
Mini909 for example, whose I told about in my reply to our friend Numa: "Mini909... which already contains all the full original TR-909 drumkit! (but of course not all the additional kits made by Roland later). And just this free version containing the full original TR-909 drumkit is just... the best sounding emulation I've ever heard of this drum machine!"
What i wanted to say in priority is that all the paywares sold very expensive (for what they are, actually) by Beatmaker have their equivalent in a way better quality and way better number of features... in freewares. And I also tried to make understand that his payware bundle is a pure hypocrisy considering that at these prices you can get products which are 10 if not 50 times better. In his paywares I don't see any one which really worths the price. How can someone buy for €20 (!!!) a crap like that? :
As I said, the guy should stop smoking the carpet.
Even in freeware it wouldn't appeal anybody when we can see all the REAL gems which exist in current freewares (Charlatan OBXD, Dexed...) and in ancient freewares which are true real gems (the products from TAL (Tal-Uno-62, TAL-Bassline, TAL-Elek7ro, TAL-Vintager, TAL-NoizeMaker, TAL-Vocoder...), those from AlgoMusic (Arpy, Phadiz, String Synthesizer...), those from HG Fortune, those from AM Music Technology (Pro Solovst and VL-122), those from Wok (Bassimo, Blip1000, Blip2000. ChordMem Pro, Clockwork, Cromina, Estrima, Filterbank, FlexFilterbank2, StringChorus, Viktor...), those from Andreas Ersson (PolyIblit, LazySnake...), those from Angular Momentum (3-OSC VA, AddTable Synth, Analog Warfare, Freehand Free, KarBass, KickLab XL, Retronix, Unifyer, Wavedraw...), those from Benjamin 'BeRo' Rosseaux (BR404, BR808, and now Sobanth), all those from Benoit Serrano (Adonis Pro, AMT-1, Anubis 1 and Anubis 2, Ceres, Circé, Cosmos, Dionysos EX, Hades XT, Horus and Horus MKII, Io, Orpheus and Orpheus 2, Osiris XT, Radium, Redshift 2 and Redshift 3, Selena, Stratos, Vesta...), all those from Xavier Kalensky aka KXfree (KX-Modulad, polyM-CSE, KX-Polymod, KX-Synth-X16, KX-Onmi 600), all those from BigTick (Angelina, Cheeze Machine, EP-Station, Rainbow, TickyClav, Zen), those from Brain Control (the additive/subtractive Tunefish 2, the additive/wavetable Tunefish 4), the wonderful Trans Computer Maschine from Cescato, etc.
That's why I insisted on the fact that all the freewares from Beatmakers are totally uninteresting in comparison (so they are not "gems" at all) and on the fact that his paywares are pure hypocrisy in comparison to those I just listed in the paragraph just above.
So it was an opportunity (it's not frequent in this thread so why not once?) to make reappear in mind what is the difference in a "free gem" and a "free crap" and to show at what point some cheapwares are even so simplist (and without even any real exceptional sound) that they can't compete at all with other cheapwares which in comparison are real gems and very often having a huge interest also for the people appealed by the free gems.
