Nice! 25002 from when I just checked.

There’s still 14 days left, does that mean people can still jump in for the GB? Was thinking about getting in again to pickup some Amplitube pedals and amps that were added not too long ago.

I lived next to one of the biggest music conservatories in the world for many years, knew quite a lot of pianists and also musians from orchestra and I can not remember even one pianist who used a daw or Vsti. Exceptions prove the rule. I would sometimes show my daw and Pianoteq or Kontakt or whatever , well, they just did not like playing on keys of a digital piano, it's just not the real thing.
In my personal case it was just the opposite, I learnt to play some classical pieces, Rachmaninov, Debussy etc and could play not too bad on a Roland digital piano, but when I had the opportunity to play on a Bechstein grand, I simply failed, because it's a completely different instrument Maybe ask someone who plays an acoustic guitar to use a guitar Vsti, what would be his reaction, what do you think?! Vsti are nice toys and some great opportunity to play and use something similar to the real thing. No VST and no VSTi is very close to the real thing, though, if it was, plugins would ruin hardware producers and producers of instruments and they could not justify the way higher price any more. It's not just about sound, it's about playability, response, atmosphere, randomness, age, temperature of gear, haptic, low end etc that makes hardware different. Plugins are nice and of course you can produce music with plugins, too.
I see, everyone makes different experiences apparently :)
I see your point, if you don't have the space for a real piano or do not have the opportunity always to play a real piano somewhere, you have to find other ways...

I imagine so, as it says purchased products must be registered by October 31. I'm planning on doing the exact same thing as you are with Amplitube.

I'm done. X-Time and the 2 x 12 Dr. Z cab.
Let's go make some music, people!

I'm kind of hesitant to choose the last freebie, but looking at the line up, I can't imagine what they can possible add except for the brand new ones, which I somehow doubt will be part of the group buy this year.

They might add a completely new release, surprise?! Maybe when 30.000 are reached!?

I still can’t decide whether to use my last slot on the Hammond or remaining X-gear vibe pedal. 🤔
Great group buy though, Black Friday won’t be happening this year for me.

Hi I also don't see what I could possible use, in addition to what I aleraedy got after 5 entryes :-)

That should be a discounted voucher on hardware or future software for the participants

Maybe discounted gear-credits

Jam-points has always been almost useless to me, as I can buy the stuff even cheaper at JRR etc


Just thanksfull for what I got ,.. but hold the last slots free in case :)
