I bought 2 custom bundles on JRR during this sale and also 2 in the past. You get a serial you can add to your XLN account and it's just like buying a new custom pack, e.g. you get to select 3 of everything at any time.

I actually wrote to XLN several years ago and confirmed that yes, you can buy the Custom bundle (or any similar bundles) from third-party retailers and then register them in your XLN account even if you already own Addictive Drums, and you'll get to select all the ADpaks and such just as you'd expect. I don't have any reason to believe they've changed that since then. I don't know why they don't allow you to buy it that way directly from them as well, but they never have. Shrug.
Awesome! Thanks a lot for the confirmation, oneshotdeal and Ceej . I will get the normal Custom bundle for now. :phones:

I think there's no reason to buy from XLN Audio store when JRR Shop and others have a better price. :)

We have got our answer. Time to open our wallet. :hihi: :tu:

Plugin Alliance doing another "Any" plugin for $29.99 plus VAT sale. Code is LYS1-2999 and there will be another on Feb 28.

Obviously some plugins are excluded.
I believe this is the first time Knifonium has been included in the 29.99 sale. A little bit tempting.

It was 39.99 earlier in the year during a time when you could also use the $25 vouchers.

Nice! Thanks for confirming @oneshotdeal and @Ceej! Only downside to this is that now I'm really tempted to bite in the sale. (@LoveEnigma18, exactly! :D )

Also tempted by Knifonium at $29.
Those who bought last time round, happy with it?
Don't really need any more synths..

Yeah, and unfortunately, I had already used my voucher. :( No biggie. It will come back around.

I´m trying to sell mine... but I´m not a synth guy really. I was just curious and it doesn't really add anything I already have. In fact I don't really like what I hear (I should have known being PA and all... oh well). Some synth-pros will tell you otherwise, I'm sure.

Same. The offer was tempting (it's a nice synth), but, I rather save up and buy something I really want.
Plugins and a DAW. On an operating system. Which runs on a computer.

I'm happy with the sound, but not with the CPU usage.

As far as I know you dont get pdf download file.

the site https://www.plugins-samples.com offers better deal (1 year) & access to all past issues.
The thing I'd like to know - do you get a PDF version of the magazine? - cant be bothered to screen capture all pages and etc. Have you got the subscription ? let us know :tu:

Thanks for the Knifonium feedback.
Decided to pass. Talk of similarities with Vacuum Pro put me off.

Why dont you try it for yourself, there's a 14 day fully functional trial?
Win 10, Bitwig 3.2.2, too many plugins, Novation Circuit Mono Station and now a lovely Waldorf Blofeld.
