I am in GAS mode right now and feel like hitting on one Oeksound plug-in and/or Fabfilter Pro-Q 3. But I have also been eyeing crossgrade deals for NI Kontakt 6. Is it wise to expect NI deals during Easter or should I forget about it?
I think the Komplete offers are usually during June, the individual product offers in November

? Its not rubbish, stupid to claim something like that.
I have purchased about 400 plugins and samplepacks over more than 10 years period of time. Very, very seldom I have paid the VAT, which is to my country BTW 24 %, when I bought from the dealer.
E. g. the top dealers JRR and Audio deluxe won't add any VAT.
Developer shops, however, add always the VAT, and so does e. g. the Pluginalliance.
You've exploited a loophole in the VAT system. That's all. You're not alone in using it and it's up to you if you do. But please stop pretending that a European vendor that is unable to help you exploit that loophole is somehow doing something wrong.

I apologise if that gets in the way of your regular daily whinge about something or other.

What a bull***t. I’m not exploiting anything, I paid always the amount shown under the last line of the bill.
And so do you. Stop whining and pretending something better.

Dodging tax is usually exclusively for the rich. i'm sure one day soon they will work out a way to stop all kinds of avoidance (apart from them of course) .

Probably need to pay VAT on that, and, even more importantly, it looks empty. :dog: :hihi:

DMS Ascension Synthesizer is currently on sale at Plugin Boutique for $19 (Regularyly $99) and on the KVR Market Place for $23 (Regularly $79). (On their own website (warning, turn your volume down if you click this link!!), it shows up as $86.26 USD plus taxes?? for total of $103.51, but it also comes with an extra 1800 bonus MIDI loops).

It does look like an interesting synth and at $19, the price seems OK purchase it, but I do have a few questions.

On the Plugin Boutique site, it mentions that it's an exclusive release which comes with an expansion with over 130 presets, 60 midi loops, and over 440 mb of ROM. There's no mention of it for the KVR Market Place. It looks that on the KVR Market Place, it is managed by Dance Midi Samples. I'm concerned that if I purchase it from Plugin Boutique, I might not get updates vs getting it directly from Dance Midi Samples and I'd prefer not to have to purchase it again from Dance Midi Samples in the future for an upgrade.

Anyone have any comments or experiences with purchasing it through Plugin Boutique? Do you get to register it on the Dance Midi Samples' site (the installer seems to come directly from Plugin Boutique though based on the install instructions). At $19, it's almost a no-brainer, but I wouldn't mind spending a few dollars more (minus the extra ROM) on the KVR market place instead if it meant better future support Dance Midi Samples.

Also, Music Radar seems to say that's it's a decent synth and based on the review price of £149, it's already gone down in price since then -- maybe they aren't selling it as many licenses as they were expecting at the release price.

Similar question here.
Not sure ujam Heavy (at Plugin Boutique for €29 atm) is versatile enough to be of any use in the long run. I tested the demo and I like it but fear that the variations/grooves provided will get boring and limiting pretty fast ?!?
Anyone out there who has used it for longer ?

I redeemed the code in iLok license manager so it must be a misunderstanding on my part.

There is a redeem page on the Oeksound site so I'm not sure what that's for.
