We have decided to provide this instrument for free for a period to help students, teachers, educators ect.
My point simply was not every upgrade, update can be free
If you dont want to pay the aksing pirce thats totally fine. As this plugin has now had many years of use from the premium sales nothing has been lost.
Price =/= value.
I got Xpand!2 for a low sale price, but it doesn't bother me that it is free now. It's the first thing I recommend to newbies that are looking for more "real instrument" sounds than what came with their first DAW.
Folks can mock it all they want, but Xpand!2 has it's place in my kit. It is a good upgrade for all of the hardware romplers I collected for the past 20 years, LOL!!!
I find it useful as a go to for sounds, even though I have the full SampleTank and numerous other soft synths with deep programming features.
For just grabbing a quick sound, setting up a multi or layer, it's hard to beat. And the sounds are good.
Windows 10; with instruments from AIR, Ample Sound, AAS, Cakewalk, IK Multimedia, iZotope, KV331, NI, Seaweed Audio, SONiVOX, TAL, Tracktion, u-he, Way Out Ware, XLN, others...
