Well, to be fair I also own ColdFire and the Winter freebie, so the Upgrade doesnt really make any sense for me now. Its how it always worked with Arturia, some get lucky and others not so much.

It was actually $99 to upgrade from V4 to V8 but now they'd like $299 to upgrade to V10. The new management is tough as nails.

i have fx collection 3, dist coldfire (bought seperately), lx24 (bought seperately), filter ms-20 and efx refract (both free) and can upgrade to fx collection 4 for 199€ (or buy rotary cls-222 for 99€ :lol: ) or to fx collection 5 for 99€.
strange prices. still unsure if the 4 missing plugins are worth the 99€ to me.

Those are exactly the ones I own too. So 4 new Plugins of which maybe 2 are interesting for me. No Problem with that, yet its also just not a good Deal. :shrug:

Took the plunge.

Quick testing last night. Exciter sounded very good. I haven't done a direct comparison shootout with anything but the quality seemed better than other exciters I've tried.

The clipper has a "Lavry Gold" preset. It seems only to affect the clipper and saturation aspect. I wonder how it stacks up to Gold Clip.

They have Mello-Fi. And if they had merely added a mix knob to it, it could have been used as a tape flanger, too.
Would that be different compared to the plugin mix knob of your DAW?
Studio One doesn’t have a plugin mix knob. There is a splitter you can use to create parallel processing, though. Or you can put it on a send, and mix the return (FX) channel.

But tape flange was usually done on a whole mix. So it makes the most sense to place a tape flange on the master buss, which means it needs to be on an insert. This is where a mix knob would come in handy.

So yes, it can be done with a few extra steps, just like setting up parallel compression. But it's an unnecessary inconvenience, which is why lots of effects (including many compressors) include a mix knob. Arturia's own Bus FORCE is billed as a "parallel processing powerhouse."

What is 'plugin mix knob of your DAW' ?

People just un-registered the license thru the web site (without contacting support) and sold it even though it wasn't according to Arturia formal policy.

Not sure if it's not possible anymore, I find it hard to believe that I suddenly see so many FX4 licenses for sell starting immediately after FX5 was released.

This guy is even selling FX2, FX3 AND FX4: viewtopic.php?t=606559, how can it be done if one can't sell a license which was used for upgrade?
As I mentioned earlier in this thread, there is no upgrade e.g. for me (coming from V3 plus everything that makes up V4 except the Dynacord emu plus the ex-freebie that's part of V5),
so I can only purchase a new independent license for V5 for 99€ and thus I'd then be free to let go of all my other FX-licenses... (however since I can't be arsed to do that I'm out this time around)

I'm in the $99 range, and for me that doesn't quite make sense, considering I have all the bases covered that are in the new offerings. They'll get me, eventually, but not this time. Same for the last V Collection.

This is where I’m at too. I’m on FX Collection 3 and I don’t see anything that makes me want to upgrade.

Someone on another forum mentioned they have the original FX collection and they have the same $99 upgrade price.

Again: there is NO upgrade for you guys or me - it's a whole new license for V5 and this offer seems to be available to all customers who own some piece of software from them.

Maybe management are out on a team building exercise for the next few weeks :lol:, because today I crossgraded from FX4 to FX5 for 49e (vs 69e to upgrade), which granted me a new license meaning I could sell on FX4 for 49e. Basically upgraded for free :party:

Correct. I do not own an FX collection but get the 99 dollar crossgrade price (assuming from VC8).
