Cool, I already have the first version of KClip. Can you tell a little bit more about the tape saturation that will be on the Pro version? Is it a full on tape machine emulation with different tape sizes, IPS, etc. (kind of like the Slate VTM) or more to get a general feel of how clipping would sound with tape saturation?

Thanks.

It's more of the latter - a kind of cleaned up version of tape without all of the drawbacks - a tape inspired saturator (no wow and flutter or funky noise, etc.) Also, the tube saturator is basically an audiophile take on Thermionik.

Great question! Since the VIP offer is really for the guitar line, and KClip 1 was a bonus to tide people over until the long-delayed release of the first 25 Thermionik 5 amp modeling plugins and Recabinet 5, all VIPs will get the free KClip 2 (standard) upgrade, but the Pro version is a paid update just the same as it is for all other KClip 1 owners. This seems the most fair to everyone.

Hey Shane, does the fact that these are pre-orders mean the price will increase upon release? I think $25 for the upgrade is very fair and am more than happy to plonk my money down, but can't afford to do that for a little while due to being skint!

Here we go again... 2nd mail with the same 'kclip2 introduction ' mass mail.

A second mail is not a problem (yet)but if this goes anything like last time I will keep receiving kclip mails every week for the upcoming months :S.

I'm actually interested in kclip2 this time but that doesn't mean I need to see the introduction again, and again, and again, and again, and again.... :)

Prices are subject to change down the road, but KClip 1 users will always receive a discount. That said, I have no plans to change pricing anytime soon.

joriskmak - really odd to hear that you're getting the email twice. Are you reading in text mode or something? All emails use open tracking to prevent double-sends.

that "open tracking" clearly doesn't work as i've been getting Thermionik/KClip emails regularly at some point. does it work if i read the email on my phone? and why is this necessary in the first place, can't they just be sent once, regardless of whether they were read?

I'm using the highly regarded MailChimp platform, and the open tracking is supposed to work in almost any email client for any platform, desktop or mobile. It's strange, though, because in the last year I've been getting more complaints. I may have to talk to their support team about this.

As for your second question, there's two reasons. One is that I don't want users missing out on important news and updates (it's so easy to miss an email.) Another comes down to a little thing we call...

It's critical - while this is my passion, it's also a business, and I have a family to feed. I do everything I can to make sure that it's as unobtrusive as possible. Sorry for any annoyance - I'll look into this further.
