It's EU law, it just happens being from the UK I only know of the UK version but NI is still selling to UK customers so it will apply
It may apply but unless NI has a UK office, there is nothing the UK government can do about it. A German company is not bound in any way by UK law. Also, as TMHC says, it's a new version with a new price. As long as the price stays at $199 after the sale, I don't see a problem. No company has any obligation to sell a product at a price that suits you. If you think it's too expensive, don't buy it.

Anyway, bought it this morning without even realising it had been updated or the price had gone up. All that matters is that I was happy to pay the Au$149 they were asking. The X-Y pad was the tipping point for me. As soon as I started messing with that, the whole thing came alive. It's awesome!

Sample drag and drop makes this a fun house.

I can't see myself using that feature. Honestly, who has the time? It comes with more than enough content that I can't see myself ever running out of new sounds.

Isn’t there only ~ 3 GB of content? Or is that just the demo version?

Iris 2 comes with like 11 GB of samples, but at most 20% of that is used in presets. Personally I had a little use of it so far.

With a granular synth you can really gets tons of sound out of relatively short sample. Just like any other synth, and unlike sample-based library.

Ok thank you both for clarifying. I don’t doubt that what’s there can justify the price tag, you just do tend to see higher storage requirements for products charging as much so I figured I would double check.

For a start, that's about a million times more content than your average V/A and it doesn't seem to limit them a whole lot. Secondly, whatever the gig count is, it equates to somewhere around 400 wave sources for the oscillators, which I think will keep me entertained for the foreseeable future.

I did a bit of D'n'Ding of my own samples the other night and it just confirmed what I thought - whoever curated the content that ships with Straylight did a really good job. In every instance my samples sounded worse than the ones they replaced. I was trying to see if I needed Quanta as well, or if Straylight could cover what it does. Turns out they are very different beasts and I think they will complement each other nicely. Now I just need to find some time to play around and learn the intricacies of each (never had a granular synth before).
