I am considering crossgrading from Pigments to V Collection for the first time, but I'm wondering about the difference if I do it now compared to when V9 is released. One of my main interests is the MTS-ESP microtuning support, which appears to be gradually being added to the individual synths in the collection.

If I purchase V8 now, and later during V9 an update gives MTS-ESP to more synths, will that update apply to the synths I have still under the V8 license?

If not, then perhaps I will prefer to wait for more MTS-ESP enabled synths during V9. Although the special price now is $150, I suppose later during a sale for V9 it will be $200. Is it a reasonable deduction to figure that it will cost less at $200, compared to paying $150 for V8 now and later upgrading to V9 for I'm guessing $100?
Thanks.

To get the same price with V9 will need 1.5 years approximately… (if at all…) V9 might have around 4 more instruments. You can do the calculation on price per plugin yourself…

Thanks guys, I did get it after all. I got a response elsewhere that future updates do apply to previous V Collection versions so that sealed the deal for me.

FWIW, my upgrade price is $149 (and I bought SQ80 on my own; maybe I should ask about the price as perhaps it will end up a bit lower due to my purchase.)

$99 upgrade may be the occasional sale price, deducing from past sales.

I hear you, but after talking to a very kind rep about this, I think with two new synths, two new "player-type" synths (my description, not theirs), 4 reworks, and pretty significant number of patch banks, $199 is about right for this ($149 for me only because of my previous purchase of SQ80.)

I certainly could be wrong, but I don't think that we're going to see $99 on this anytime soon, if at all. The intro pricing ends sometime in June, I think.
