Heres a good one
Ableton Suite upgrade
https://m.thomannmusic.com/ableton_live ... _suite.htm
Almost £40 less than I see anywhere else. I quote british pounds as Im a Brit
The problem with their site is that they give an estimate for prices in pounds and when you get to the payment screen the exchange rate has changed by 5 to 10 percent which often makes them more expensive.
Sneaky tactics.

Use Revolut, pay in their currency. Works in my case.

So I guess Ujam Hustle (one day flash sale) doesn't have midi drag (to easily convert patterns to midi and edit them) or other easy ways to edit the drum patterns (for example, like Korg Gadget's scroll bar for increasing / decreasing complexity) aside from doing them yourself on the kit? It's basically kits and loops?

Sure there are things you can do but that's a separate issue.
My complaint is that they give a price in pounds which is bogus as when you checkout it goes up by 5%.
That's false advertising of pricing.

UJam are slowly rolling out the release of version 2 of each of their libraries that adds the midi drag drop feature. Crucially for me one missing aspect of version 1 kits is you dont have selectable separate outputs to route to for further mixing in DAW.

Anyone know what the chances of PSP’s 608 delay going on sale is?

I saw that a few years ago it was $33, was this a once off crazy sale?

Thanks,
Nathan

Just checked the site and the price, and it says price is without VAT.
My guess is that the price increase you see is because of the added VAT, and not because of conversion rates.

Could you check that?

Never mind. As you were. I just did a whois and it seems they are both registered to them and hosted on the same server.

IP Address 212.204.75.161 - 74 other sites hosted on this server
IP Location Germany - Bayern - Erlangen - Thomann Bits & Beats Gmbh
ASN Germany AS8767 MNET-AS Germany, DE (registered Apr 28, 1998)

Seems the US site, thomannmusic.com has better prices then? Interesting. Didn't realize that until today.

That is a great price for an upgrade to Live 10 Suite. I may grab it.

Did anyone actually buy the Waves Abbey Road Saturator + MDMX bundle? Any quick review?

Looks like we may get a "sale extended" email shortly. ;) Could very well be my last purchase.

Yes I did (grrrr GAS).

Pro Tools Expert gives a much better review than I ever could:

It is showing me $229 again - maybe the lower price was a mistake, or just for Cyber Monday?

I have to say, I am awfully proud of myself. I did not buy a single music software product on BF or CM. Now we wait for dealz form UVI and Arturia. Lets see some 40% or 50% off on bundles bitchez.

Thanks! I think only GAS could make us purchase it. Not really seeing any other reason except the price to pick this up - I mean 5 plugins for less than 50 bucks is always tempting. :arrow: But showing some resistance here... :borg:
