Wow, you can rent a bunch of outdated products that you could buy for next to nothing for only 200 bucks a year.

:ud:
That's why I had to ask. :o

It seems they updated their collections with the new instruments that were not included before. Akai VIP is included as well. But I agree, not worth the price they are asking.

Air and InMusic in general really are clueless. The only saving grace is AKAI, and I'm waiting for that boot to drop.

I would pay good money for resizable GUIs on Transfuser and Loom, etc. but this is just plain stupid. They've been giving away the Air Instrument Collection for $79 for years now and the expanded total collection goes on sale for $99-139 all the time at places like pluginboutique. This is about as stupid of a move as I've seen a company do that isn't Crysonic.

Loom is included in the middle two bundles, but need to pay $20 per month!!! to get access to Loom 2
They're even more out of touch than i thought.

And those resizable GUI updates from what, three years ago, are almost done...

How desperate can they be? I've seen recently they have been releasing preset packs for their own outdated plugins, insread of upgrading them. Loom II was more or less a failure, Transfuser still has a GUI bug, and none of their plugins are resizable, even though they promised this for free way back.

I liked AIR a couple of years back, and their support was actually good. But then things (everything) went sideways, or rather backwards.

I own all of the AIR instruments (including Loom II) and when porting over to a new DAW PC I haven't even bothered to install them...probably never will- they owe my nothing, I have used them, they were good once, but they dont compare to modern plug's. I haven't missed them once, although if they ever update the GUI I may re-install a couple of them...but I realy cant think whey I would use them over Dune 3, Avenger, the Arturia stuff, UHE stuff etc. Sometimes you just have to let stuff go and not hoard it!

True, but it's a pity - these are all very good plugs that need some love & updates

Similar with Korg. They have some products that are so overdue for an update yet they keep selling them.

The worst thing is that AIR can't just be honest telling us it will never happen. They are real cowards!

Dead company. I'm done with them. No update of GUI, preset packs as "releases" and now that? Time to rethink this business model and to hire some dsp coders with ninja skills or they'll be history.
