Some of you might know from my previous posts that I\'m a bit sensitive about feeling ripped off by sample developers.
Well, I just went to the VSL sight, where I read a post about the cross-grading options from Giga to EXS24 (something I\'ve been looking into as well). According to the post, the \"fair\" price that\'s been figured is no less than 50% of the retail price. So, those of us who bought VSL for giga hoping to get the EXS version when it came out now get decide if it\'s worth an extra $1500 (+/-).
Pretty offensive. A big pet peeve of mine is feeling like I\'m being nickeled and dimed to death.
Many quickly use the arguement in general discussions about piracy/etc ( a fav topic around these parts):
\"Your not purchasing the storage media, your purchasing the license to use the samples.\"
It seems they use this cue-card defense with the cross-grade prices tucked under the soap box.
Well, so much for that well-worn bellyache.
What does everyone else think? Am I being unreasonable?
Here is the Thread I\'m talking about.
