I didn't demo. I checked out the samples on the Arturia site. Sorry I didn't mean to insult it, I just meant that it kind of seems in the same ballpark as what I already have with Komplete.

I suppose if you get technical, they could argue $199 vs. $499 is better than $99 vs. $199, butMikeCallon wrote: ↑Thu Nov 15, 2018 9:40 amSo from their launch email back in January:
Your previous version entitle you to the best offer you will ever receive. Get V Collection 6 for 199 US$ instead of 499 US$
So I can only assume that 7 is imminent....and I will never listen to their marketing bull$h1t ever again

It isn't, IMO. Apples and Oranges.

They both have strong points, and the only real overlap is with FM stuff (FM8 and DX7 V),
and even those are fairly different.
I tend to use and like the Arturia bundle more.

If you purchased a year ago by $ 149, you have had the ver. 6 in use for few cents a day, comparing those who waited the upgrade until today.
Isn't that quite a good deal?

Oddly.. I went to the Arturia site, signed in - and saw the $99 upgrade. Selected it, and was taken to a page that said $126.00 for the upgrade? On a hunch, I clicked ok... add to cart and was taken to a cart where it showed $99. Score. No brainer upgrade for me, as I wanted the Piano V2 and DX full edit abilities.

Cool! It's going to get expensive for me instrument wise this next couple weeks, but I'm pretty happy with them offering the upgrade at $99 finally, it's a way to honor the lower price, and the cool Synclavier upgrade for free a while ago.
