Postby egbert101; Wed Dec 06, 2017 9:22 am What Percentage Would You Pay To Upgrade?

Suppose you have a plugin or a bundle of plugins, and it gets updated from version x to x+1: what is a reasonable amount in your opinion to pay for such an upgrade in terms of percentage of the original price?

It really depends on what the Update is. How much different the new product is then the old one.
Lets use Komplete as a benchmark since its the most well known plugin bundle.
If Komplete 12 had like a whole bunch of crazy awesome new stuff (And/Or updated and modernized the Legacy synths finally after all this time)
then I would happily pay a decent amount of coin for it.
It the update is rather small then I would not go anywhere near it if the price was high.

I going to say 200$ is the most I will be Comfortable to go to. And I will spend higher if I feel its worth it. But if im going to open my wallet for more than 200 on an updated product I already own you need to Reaaaaally Blow me away and give me something I know will be beneficial to me.

Yes, it totally depends on the software and what it entails, but a rough guess is max around the 30% mark. You start getting to 40% - 50%, and I will probably skip a year.
