i remember you basically saying that the VIP thing is null and void in that it now has no time limit, but all VIP users will receive all plugins originally planned for release during the VIP period, no? i can't find the exact quote so maybe it was my imagination...

What I said was that the VIP period was reset for everyone to start January 4, 2015, therefore it ends January 4, 2018. This makes it simple and ensures everyone gets the same rewards for backing the Thermionik 5 project.

My original plan was to release 10-15 amp models per year for 3 years. I then expanded the concept to also include some FX, but for the primary focus to stay on amps (and distortion in general.) To date, I've released 30 amp models and 5 pedal models, so we're almost at the end of what that crowdfunding campaign helped to fund. I will be releasing some more guitar plugins this year (some amps, some other things), and my hope is that everyone continues to be happy with what they're getting.

I know that personally, I've never worked harder at anything in my life than the Kazrog guitar plugin lineup. It's incredibly time consuming to build each plugin up to the standard that's been set thus far, and many of these plugins are not (on their own) very profitable whatsoever. This is a labor of love, and a tribute to all of you who believed enough in me to support me during what was a very difficult business transition. You guys helped me take this endeavor to the next level, and there's a lot of great stuff in the future.

Even after the VIP period ends, I'm not going to forget you guys. Cheers! :phones:

I didn't think you meant that, no worries!

I appreciate the question, actually, as it gave me a chance to re-clarify what exactly the plan is, in case anyone else was wondering. Thanks!

Goddamnit. The Marks, all three are the best thing ever. Talk about 100% useable versatility. Again, I'm floored. My compliments to the chef. It's funny what a difference a tweak like that can make. For me, the IIC+ feels like a goddamn work of art. Man, this is the kind of stuff to which I wish I had access growing up around amps! I'm just grateful to have access now. Complete and total awesomenity.

Just wanted to drop in and give some kudos. I just upgraded to K Clip pro. It's really such a useful plugin and the new modes sound great. Fantastic price for the upgrade too.

I've also finally gotten back into the swing of doing some recordings and have had time to explore the long awaited update to Thermionic. Really nice work! The BE100 model responds quite similarly to my JJ-100. I think the thing that impresses me the most is how good and different the response and feel of these sims are model to model.

I do sort of miss the convenience of having the IR loader attached but I can see the advantage the way things are now.

Im sure you probably answered this elsewhere but is the Poweramp section just baked into the preamp now or is it baked into Recab 5? I guess Im curious what the chain is supposed to look like.

Power amp is baked into the ampsims now. You can disable it in Options tab.

it seems that the v1.0.1 installer doesn't have KClip 2 Standard, only Pro? Or are they the same plugin, just different modes? If so, how do i switch the "Pro" to "Standard"?

This is a stupid situation right now - they are separate plugins. You'll need to overwrite Pro with Standard. I've also lagged on getting the Standard installer up to date with the latest fixes. I'm still trying to figure out a better path forward for my installers - I'm very unhappy with the present state of things.

Sorry about that!
