    I need a few ??? anwsered and there seems to be so many threads and links that it's a little unclear.

    Silver to Gold Pro Group Buy price? Deadline?

    Gold to Gold Pro Group Buy price? Deadline?

    If you own PLAT Strings, any discount toward GOLD GROUP PRO buy?

    No difference. Each EWQLSO product comes with a specific number of "authorizations", which authorize both the samples and the sample player (Kompakt player). The original INTENT of more than one authorization was to allow a person to install on both a desktop and a laptop, but only USE one of these at a time. You really only have one license, but NI and EW are trying to be "nice" and accomodate the musician who might work on a desktop while in their studio, then work on a laptop at a different time.

    Up until two days ago (12-17-04) there was just a single "Pro Upgrade", which had nothing to do with the current "Group Buy" on Gold Pro. The "Pro Upgrade" (Silver to Silver Pro, Gold to Gold Pro, Platinum to Platinum Pro) give a 30% discount, and runs until January 31, 2005:

    Two days ago, EW decided to do something special for existing Silver owners who are participating in the Gold (Regular) Group Buy. Given the (I would assume) huge hassle of modifying the Gold Group Buy at this point, EW is giving an additional 10% discount on the Gold Pro upgrade:
    - you have to be an existing Silver owner
    - you have to have purchased Gold as part of the Group Buy
    - you buy Gold Pro and get 30+10 = 40% on Gold Pro

    Ok, for the sake of one discussion, lets say SILVER user only, who wants to go GOLD PRO. What is the total cost, inlcluding group buy?

    Thanks

    PS, has any one heard the QLegato yet?

    It's all very exciting yet interesting, VSL had a huge promo a while back for students if I'm correct. Wondering what is in store for this years products at NAMM.

    This sure seems to shaft the people who bought the library right before the group buy who may own both Silver and Gold. They paid full price, missed out on the group buy and can't even get the Gold Pro at the extra 10% discount.

    Thanks. Two more questions. 1) When are the deadlines and 2) has anyone heard the Qlegato in action? I'm really interested in this for a 2nd PC and especially the PRO update, however, buying something without hearing it first? Hmmmmmmm, I would like to hear a demonstration of Qlegato.

    Thank you.
