So I don't think there will be a lower price in the near future for the full update with all new synth.
You're just not paying attention.
The date's not on this image but this is from December of last year, about six months after release. So, we can basically expect either a spring break or fourth of July sale as well as either a Black Friday and/or Holiday sale next year.
Also, there is that "pricing won't be lower" statement. So now I theorize that the language on the website was with respect to recent sales events and it took a bit to clean it up for the release. That is, I suspect that Arturia fully expects to reduce the price to generate a cash influx at some point as they have done time and time again.
I believe that they won't lower it below $99 for the upgrade, I have never seen it lower than that at any rate.
You know, gmail is awesome and I simply don't delete mails from the accounts that I give to vendors. Those aren't the accounts that it's important that I don't miss something. One of those accounts has some 20,000 emails going back at least three years or so. I find it very helpful to have that data so that I can do some casual trend mining from it.
