150 until june 5th
Does anyone have any thoughts on these? I've heard them in a few compositions now. No keyswitch articulations so you'll have to do it the old way, that's the major downside I'm seeing right now. It seems that there's legitimately only 4 or 5 "arabic" or "oriental" strings libraries out there that have this sound.

They also have a free 970mb multisample string library on their site, worth getting just that for sure.
For the two $0 libraries on that page, clicking "Order now" only reloads the page....

Tried clicking on "Order Now" for one of the products listed as $100, and it showed up as $200.

And they still have a banner on top advertising their up to 98% off "Cyber Monday" code, which doesn't work.

This is the link to the offer for 150. I successfully downloaded the free content through their checkout, I think something must be going on with their web designer as it also lists something to do with "web services" but it links back to their support ticket page. The 00 you see is probably the past deals that they posted on their facebook as well.

isn't that why paypal is a thing?

I'm really hoping to find at least someone who has bought it, the website from some seemingly unknown to google search company based in Algeria is a bit weird and gives off a few red flags. The demo that I have now sounds really good so I may take the risk tomorrow.

There are scripts that will help you turn these instruments into 1 with keyswitch so no need to do do it the old way. I think Orange Tree Samples has one for free.
What ever!

I'm about to drop £379 for the FF mastering bundle Pro Q - L2 - Multiband - Comp. Is there any likelihood they are about to have a summer sale?

Nspace, I also thank you for the interesting post. Had no idea that Spectralayers 7 was announced. Do you have a link for that?

I passed up the previous sale in the hope that there may soon be another better sale for Sound Forge Pro 13 or 14 which includes SL 6 and 7. I suppose SL 6 and/or 7 will eventually be sold separately from Sound Forge.

Steinberg SpectraLayers Pro 6 is one of the most advanced spectral editors worldwide. SpectraLayers Pro transforms sound into a unique visual world of multidimensional audio data. Its concept, based on frequency selection, enables sounds to be extracted, optimized or rearranged in a new, revolutionary way. Thanks to ARA2, SpectraLayers Pro is now more seamlessly integrated into Samplitude Pro X5. All customers that purchase a copy of Samplitude Pro X5 Suite will be able to download the forthcoming update to SpectraLayers Pro 7 for free.

Magix has been bundling SF and SL with Samplitude PRO Suites, however sales usually include legacy SF versions, which have also appeared at HumbleBundle. SL was only included in some of the bundle sales, careful with that.

Looks like I need to keep an eye on Humble Bundles for a SoundForge and Spectralayers sale! Apparently I missed some good sales. My interest is in SL 6 but more so in Version 7. I was thinking that SL 7 will likely be released in 2021 but as you stated SL 7 it already has been announced. What is the ETA for SL7?

I would love to get my hands on a SL 6 or SL 6/7 or if included wit Soundforge. If SAmplitude Pro X5 goes on sale for $199 I will likely get it.

SL7 hasn't been announced yet. We assume it will be released in July 2020 as SL 6 was released last July. Its possible.

I hope they have a great intro price for SL7.
Steinberg has an annual Summer sale so there is a chance of a sale on SL7.

Do you know Robin Lobel?

Doubt it. Anything is possible. I guess all depends how much they want to penetrate the market of iZotope and others.

Is there anyone on here who did buy Magix software from the Humble bundle deal? I think might be good to confirm what it comes with and where the codes come from.

According to this source [1], it doesn't come with the extras that you get when you buy directly from Magix [2] .
"Note:
No external plug-ins included (iZotope Ozone Elements 8 & iZotope RX Elements)."
[1] https://www.humblebundle.com/store/sound-forge-pro-12

[2] https://shop.magix.com/en_US/magix/bask ... mlinks.com

It would be very good to get someone who bought it to confirm what the codes are it comes with.

I did and SF was a single serial number so no extras.
It all comes from Magix via Humble and the serials were for each individual products.
There’s no redemption code that you redeem at Magix but serial numbers that you register within each program.

Crossgrade for Massive X:

"This crossgrade only works for users of MASSIVE.
You won't be able to install and activate this version unless you own one of the required products listed above!"

So the "crossgrade" is really just an update from previous versions of Massive? Or is the list of other crossgrade options missing?

[Edit: after logging in, it tells me I don't have any of the required products for the crossgrade, though it doesn't mention any besides Massive.]

I think they're calling it a cross grade because it's a separate plug-in all together. Massive and Massive X are separate products. Massive X is not an update. Massive (non X) is still an active, available product.

Bu yea, it makes it more confusing when they list it in my transferable products and serials list as "Massive X Crossgrade". License type: "Update".

It looks like the only way to get the cross grade discount is to own Massive or (in my case) Massive for Maschine, which was a free add-on for me as an old Maschine 1.0 user.
