Can somebody post the link to the activation code on sale.


To get the deal you have to download the trial of whatever synth you want, then unlock the trial using the valentines promo code to get the 50% off.

Retrologue is actually a great synth.

Monark is also Monophonic whereas Retrologue is Polyphonic.......


I don't know... maybe there's some obscure reason for that. :dog:

The opener did not ask, if Monark is better than Retrologue! The question is: "On sale now, worth getting?"

Retrologue is one of the most underrated VST synths.

It is one of my favorite VST synths.

I highly recommend it, especially at the special low price :tu:

Retrologue is definitely underrated.
The Vintage Classics soundset for Retrologue is nice too.

It's a very good VA with a great sound and great features. I use Retrologue very often and it replaced for me some other VA synth. Retrologue supports VST3 Note Expression, so with a host supporting this feature you can do very interesting things (per note automation).

I made a video for this some times ago...

Where do you see it?

I got to this page, and click on buy Retrologue licence: http://www.steinberg.net/en/products/tr ... _days.html

I am then forwarded to this page, but I can't see an option to buy Retrologue licence there?:

Can somebody please post the direct link to that?

Hm, it has been written probably a dozen times now or so but again. :D You don't need the USB-eLicenser. You need to install the eLicenser software though.

Sorry, I'm not getting it to work?

I install Halion Sonic 2, rescan my plugin folder, it finds Halion Sonic 2 there.

When I try to load it, I get this error message:

"No Valid licence detected for HALion Sonic. Please connect your eLicenser and click 'Retry'"

I have updated (maintenance) the eLicencer a couple of times, but that doesn't change anything.

:help:

I corrected myself 2 posts after, because it indeed does need a USB-eLicenser. Sorry for the confusion

I don't know, i love Retrologue, here is a link to a comparison i did yesterday:

https://soundcloud.com/basaristudios/se ... oft-synths

It is a great synth and has character of his own, i would compare it to Monark.

Maybe you could edit that post, and just delete it?
