Good for Arturia and co! They are not doing anything stupid like adding fuggin Sounds.com crap like NI are doing.
Arturia has nothing to do with Sounds.com - that's a NI thing
He said LIKE.
He said "like adding fuggin Sounds.com crap like NI". To which I replied that NI is doing that because Sounds.com is a NI thing :shrug:

And what he means, as I understand it, is he's glad Arturia are not doing something similar on their part but instead focusing on developing stuff their users want.

Yes. Exactly this. I am very happy Arturia are not doing sounds.com

Now let's move on.

I am on VC6 and got some 21 updates. And for the first time with Arturia, the download speed was terribly slow yesterday, through both ASC as well direct download from website.

Did anyone else face this issue?
I updated today and it took about 30 mins for version 7 to update everything.

Yes, for me too, but the next day. :)

As expected. However I'm still a bit unsure. V Collection 8 will probably drop next year and I've managed to hold off on V7 so far. So why not wait another ~8 months and go straight from V6 to V8 for $199, instead of paying $99 now and another $199 later?

I am in the same situation as you. I will wait for V8. Most of the new sounds are accessible via AnalogLab. Hope for V8 and new Instruments.

I am on the fence as well, to be honest. Nothing as compelling as last year (DX7 V) for me, this year. May end up waiting until next year too. Just brought it up here, as a public service announcement. :D

Due to Arturia's stupid upgrade policy for loyal customers, they've lost at least €50 (of my money). And they will loose another €50 next version, unless they start treating their loyal customers with some respect. I would have upgraded at €149, but never ever again at the initial upgrade price of €199, and certainly not at €299.

So..yes, finally!

To be fair, its 'most software companies' stupid upgrade policy...NI (wait for 50% off sale), iZotope (wait for 50% Sale) I guess there some economic or marketing reason for wat they do, but I agree, it does seem ridiculous.

I am sure there will be a great deal from Arturia for BF. They never fail to come through.

NI add a lot more stuff in their Komplete upgrades though. Regarding iZotope, calculating their cost vs what you get, they are worst in class. The only updates they are releasing are one or two versions containing bugfixes, but no new features. So, their products are REALLY overpriced.

It's live already, if you are thinking about the V-Collection upgrade?

True, but so much of it is just 'filler' (to me at least) - 20G sample library of someone playing a xylophone with the jaw bone of an donkey or whatever....I want an Absynth update!
