I have just 12 foes in my list, and probably 8 of those are sound designers. Nothing against them personally, but a couple of them are spam-tastic. I would love it if sound-sets had a separate deals thread...
Well, that's the thing...

We have an entire subforum for this:

viewforum.php?f=257

The spammers are actually violating the rules of KVR by posting in the Deals thread. Not sure why they haven't been shut down for this, but mods have apparently decided to not address the issue.

The first stickied post in that forum says this:
"Introductory offers/discounts in a product announcement thread are allowed.
All other sales and special offers go in the Market Place subforum, not here."

Which would seem to mean that they are posting in the correct forum.

For just $39 (you save $129), get Score FX II by ueberschall! Score FX II sets the standard for underscores, FX, rhythms and atmospheres and is an essential addition to your cinematic sound design arsenal.
Been looking out for more Ueberschall. Amazing engine, still highly original.

Huh. Thanks for the heads-up, Kypresso! That is not the verbiage that I remember when the spam explosion occurred. D.H. Miltz will know whether it's been edited. Or whether I was hallucinating. Again.

In any case, looks like it's all legal now, so spam on, guys! I've still got my Foehammer.

Back to our usual endless gnawing over deals now, I guess. In that spirit, on the Humble deal with Sound Forge Audio Studio 12.6, it is indeed the previous version, but it's a huge upgrade from the one before that. I have it, and couldn't be more pleased with its functionality and GUI. It makes a great external audio editor for Reaper. Excellent deal for $25, IMHO. I feel no need to upgrade to v13, which has improvements that seem cosmetic and relatively minor to me.

Decided to bit on the BX Dyna EQ offer, put in the heavy hitter code, price reduces to $29, chuck in my $25 dollar monthly voucher, price drops to $4, go to checkout to pay, hit pay using paypal and receive notification that the license has been added and installation instructions but it never entered the paypal payment page and no funds appear to have been deducted when I checked my account.

So I just got that for nothing it seems, very odd...

DearVR is on a 3 day sale at the moment. My code is dvrMusic69b and takes the price to $69 but I'm wondering if there is another one floating around that will drop the price to 29?

Seems I'm not the only one here. After tricked by their a/b voucher once, we should be careful about these codes now :hihi:
Anyways, I tried to change the code with 19/29/39/49a but none of them works.
And one of my friends reported receiving the same code.

Ya, I ran through all the possible variations as well :ud:

I'm pretty sure there is or will be one with the suffix "a"

Will jrrshop be lowing Output prices to coincide with current Output products sale?

I doubt it as these NI deals tend to be exclusive.

I received the same code, and rather than going through a combination of possible numbers to get the price down, I simply asked myself... do I need this? And the answer is clearly not. I will barely ever use it. Same with the one band dynamic eq...There are many other more interesting things around.
My .02 pesos.

The ”3D” effect is nothing you can’t get by a good reverb (e.g. Eventide Room) and panning.
The ”behind the listener” is even weaker with this VR plugin than with some other reverbs/delays. Snake Oil - just a interface!

This is not entirely true. The key here is the accuracy of the spatialization based on HRTF modeling. There are a few plugins out there that do this (NuSpace Muze or Wave Arts Panorama come to mind), but it is a rather rare functionality. If you really „need“ this is a different story (but I would argue that pretty much nobody here really needs anything we are chatting about anyway).

In music production, you are usually not that concerned with accuracy and most often like to overemphasize spatialization effects (plus the vertical information is usually lost on human ears anyway). And that is indeed something you can do with any good reverb, provided you know what you are doing.

Buy Waves Gold - Get Free SSL4000.
Collection is automatically registered in your account within 3 hours.
Must register the Gold before March 22, 2019, 5:00 am EST in order to receive SSL 4000.
The above is an edit from the No Chat thread. I have an unused Gold license bought about a month ago, so if I register within the offer period will I get the SSL4000 also? I think that's how it works! Thanks.

Hi agharta,
Yes. If you didn't register it yet, go ahead and do it now.
You should receive the SSL4000 from Waves.
