Are Waves serious in thinking they can charge $200 for a subtractive synth plugin?

It doesn't matter what promotional videos they out out - the asking price it utterly outrageous. ES2 in Logic Pro is better (IMO) and costs nothing extra beyond the price of the entire Logic DAW (not far off the price Waves are asking here for one ordinary subtractive synth!)

Waves are surely excellent in the plugin effects market (though even there their price structure is unsustainable in the long term), but they are outrageously unrealistic, right now, in charging $200 for this.

I agree, Waves products have always been very overpriced. Good product but for God sake it is only software.

Ok, the guy showed us how he build a song with a softsynth. This could be done exactly the same way with other softsynths.

The question is : Why would I buy this ? Better sound quality ? Non-Linear filters ? Jordan Rudess doesn't use it ?

For the intro price, maybe. For two hundred, I just can't see it.

Interesting to see waves do a synth plugin though. I wonder if it will be the first or last.

I tried the demo and liked the fact is has it all on one screen including Seq/Arpeggiator. Felt it sounded warm and proceeded to buy online from 3rd party shop with discount it costed $75. Probably Waves will never sell this for $200 maybe the $200 is just a marketing stunt to put pressure on you to by at releaser offer price.

Everyone who posted here must be about 12 years old. In 1985 you would have paid about $2,000 for a synth that couldn't do one-sixteenth of what this thing can do.

Well, sorry to burst your time-bubble but we are not in the 80s anymore, Today is 8th Jan 2013 !!!

When people talks about price they compare against other current soft-synths offerings... and not against a 1985 hardware synth.

We are not 12 years old (at least I am not) I had a Siel DK 80 when I was young! :) but you shouldn't act/talk/think like a 175 year old turtle either :)

As with every new 'latest/greatest' soft synth being released, the benchmark for me is still u-He. Urs raised the bar so high that some developers have pretty much sighed a collective, F' Me. ....
