guys, i just received an email about another supscription, it seems they put every plugin series as subscription model... wtf is up with them? i think about unsubscribing their newsletter, they got on my nerves. still awesome products but whats up with their marketing? it gets more annoying than their pre-release demos and no price mentioning. now their vouchers are nearly laughable with those ridiculous full prices. but the same time they write every few days about new plugins and new subscriptions.

im so glad i bought so many plugins from them in the past but i doubt this will return how they evolved. LION is interesting but i guess this will cost 300$ and intro prices 200 $ ;D they wanna push you more and more to their subscription models if you REALLY wanna have the stuff not pverpriced.

sure, take it or leave it, i know...

I unsubscribed from their mailing list about a month ago, looks like I made the right decision.

I want to make a joke about this but I just can't.
It's like trying to parody Trump. At some point you just can't invent something more ridiculous than what is actually happening.

I just ignore them and use the energy on something positive, good, and not marketing centered.

I don't get it. When the MEGA bundle subscription was released, some people wished more flexible subscription offers. Now they add more possibilties (again without taking away anything else), and again all people here seems just to be upset and for a sudden all of there plug ins are bullshit, anyway. I think that e.g. an Unfiltered Audio subscription option would be a nice addition, and can not see any evil in it, sorry.

I unsubscribed today also. It’s getting on my nerves.

Flexible subscriptions are a good idea. But flexible would mean that I can choose what I want. For example 0,5 dollar a month for any plugin I like to rent. Choose 10 plugins and pay 5 dollars. I‘m pretty sure that it would be a better solution than inventing new subscription models every other day.

At $5.99 per month, you'll reach the price of buying them outright (at previous sale prices) in just over a year.
