You can normally find the regular SM1 on sale for around $25, I don't know about the student version in particular. Keep in mind that on Reverb you can make an offer to the seller, so you can always try $12 or $15. They sometimes accept such offers, worth a try.

I am wondering on what basis is this only for students. I mean anybody could just buy it, isn't it?
If you try to buy it, you need to prove student status first to Reverb.
Is the regular SM1 better than this one?

The upgrade prices are automatically discounted in your account based on the number of products you own. If you don't own any product, it does not make sense to you. But if you are interested in any Output product, now is the time. They do sales only twice a year (IIRC) and it is always 25% only.
Thanks, I saw an unused output movement license, I thought I might get some discount by upgrading from there, but if I don't know if is possible I won't jump in. :dog:

Silly question.... are these expansions compatible with Synthmaster One???

From their website:
With the newly added ‘Japan's Vintage’ by Nori Ubukata, there are currently 32 preset expansion banks for SynthMaster 2.9 and SynthMaster Player

Note that SynthMaster 2.9, SynthMaster One and SynthMaster Player are 3 different products despite the confusing names making it seem like SynthMaster 2.9 and SynthMaster One are compatible.
But if you buy 1 expansion, you get SynthMaster Player for free, which for $4 is pretty good if you don't have the Player (although you can get SynthMaster Player for free during some KV331 promos).

It is confusing though as some of the expansions say Synthmaster and Synthmaster Player which if you didn't know you could assume (wrongly) includes Synthmaster One

Ps I had same question on Synthmaster thread

They have had issues in the past with upgrade vs sale prices. I think if you email them, it should be fixed. It should be slightly less, but it isn't a whole lot for something like movement.

I'm showing an upgrade price of $84 to get Portal. I don't know if there are any new expansions included in that price also. Have to think about whether I want it or not.

It's totally confusing. I purchased both Synthmaster One and previously Player. So bought one of the expansions on sale. Followed the installing instructions and it (player) won't recognise it. :-(
And just to add... that means there s no banks available for Synthmaster One to purchase from kv331.

There is also a SynthMaster Player Free, which can be hard to find. Only difference between it and the regular player is the free version has 550 presets, the player version has 1800. And from time to time, the regular player is also offered free. Note that any expansion that utilizes user samples doesn't work in the player versions. (At least it didn't when I owned the full version.)
Love the synth, but it seems the country it's from likes to play games with their servers at time. Which eventually was one reason I got rid of it.

Anyone can confirm SynthMaster Player can't play packs including samples?

I also think calling their synth SynthMaster One was a mistake. It just creates confusion.
What ever!
