You should know that NI are having some issues with this. Slow servers, serials not being delivered, lots of angry punters (including me). I think this sale will be quite successful for them but they have p***ed off a few people in the process.

NI makes great software but they always seam to make people angry with them. I use to own 7 NI software packages and now only use 1 (Battery). I was tired of paying and paying and paying for updates all the time. I think most of there software is way overpriced so this sale should bring them down to reality. Just keep in mind you will pay again (very few free update with NI).

I'm a big fan of NI programs, and I think their stuff is very reasonably priced. 400 quid for just about everything they make.........300 if you happen to own one of their programs?!? I wish other companies would "overcharge" me like that.

And I had no problems buying/downloading/installing/activating Razor yesterday.

Hay Joe, NI will be glade to overcharge you all day long if you are willing to pay that kind of money for a program. These are only programs, not real hardware synths that can be worth something years down the road.

I agree with cojust1 that these are only programs. They use your computer (that you also had to pay for) to do there work. I just downloaded an app called Animoog from Moog for $5.99. Now that is a reasable cost for a software synths and the sound of this app is unbelievable. Program synths should be inexpensive because they are not like hardware synths that give you the keys to play them and the sound source to produce the sound. NI synths are just programs.

huh?    Said...

Yeah i think all software should be like $0.99 as it won't be worth anything in another couple of years...

so how many copies would you need t sell to pay yourself a wage? or do you think people who develop software should do it for nothing? Just a little bit of maths will often give you an insight in how companies arrive at pricing. I dunno, experienced software programmer at $200 a day (cheap) thats 200 copies aday just to pay their wages - just have think before you get all uppity...

One thing the world is not short of is programmers. And what happens after they sell one million copies of that program do we get a refund? I agree software is way overpriced and the only way a programmer will not get paid for his work is if his program sucks.

Used to love NI stuff but now same old stuff rehashed and customer service used to be good but now they don't seem to care at all and are not far off rude! As for half price sale - nothing there I haven't already paid for full price - I fancied studio drummer but suprise, suprise it wasn't included in the sale
