I'm extremely confused by pricing structures when it comes to USDs and EUROs. Some companies will inflate the price in US Dollars, to account for... the strength of the EURO against it?
However, I become extra confused when I see that it is not at all standard from company to company. For example:
Project SAM Symphobia 2 = 999 Euros - 1299 US Dollars - 30 percent higher! (a large disparity, don't you think?)
VSL Symphonic Cube = 2690 Euros - 3,360 US Dollars - 25 percent higher!
Melodyne Studio = 699 Euros - 699 US Dollars - NO DIFFERENCE!
Sample Modeling The Trumpet = 149 Euros - 216 US Dollars - 45 percent higher! (can this even be right?)
I guess my concern is that I'm getting ripped off. If I'm going to pay a higher amount as compared to the EU price, I would at least ask that it was according to the current difference in value between the EU and the USD. Not just some arbitrary amount, which seems to be the case now.
Am I the only one baffled by this? Perhaps there is some kind of information that I'm missing!
