No resellers carrying the Bitwig sale prices ?
Plugin Boutique has it for the sale price: https://www.pluginboutique.com/deals/show?sale_id=5311.

I would think that if Plugin Boutique has it, other resellers should too.
Thanks.

Bought from JRR.

Uncle E - is there no longer an upgrade to Music production Suite 2.1 from any advanced product please? This was usually cheaper thanfthe upgrade from standard or Elements product, thanks.
They discontinued it. Actually, even the current Crossgrade is only a temporary product, it will be discontinued after this sale is over.

I was told we'll probably be able to put up the standard Bitwig Upgrade on Monday.

Can we expect better price for V7 upgrade plus pigment at the end of the year?
If you own VC6, I would say this is the best deal. Don't think it can get any better than $248.
Yet, it definitely will. There will be a $99 VC6 to VC7 upgrade sale sooner or later like every other year. Not sure however if Pigment will be discounted at the same time.
Ya, that's true, but I was mainly referring to the combo. But rethinking about it, there are chances to get it for a little less than $248, but even at $248 it's a fantastic price you cannot go wrong with if you are really interested in it. Not worth waiting for BF if you really want it now. :)
Thanks for the input. I'm actually not in a rush need for them. And I have heard that folks with V7 can have pigment for $49. So, I guess I will upgrade to V7 for $99 sometime and then get pigment later for $49. Don't know how long it will take tho, but I'm very patient :wink:
No worries. Yeah, good idea if you are interested in VC7. :tu: I am not interested in VC7, so would probably grab it for $69 while I can.

re the one on Plugin Boutique, it has me confused

"For purchases made from July 13th 2019, Bitwig 2 users will receive a FREE Upgrade to Bitwig 3 upon its release.

Renew an existing upgrade plan for another 12 months or upgrade from Bitwig Studio 1 and get 12 months of upgrades."

So if you purchase the renewal plan earlier than July 13th you don't get a free upgrade to Bitwig 3.0?

It does sound like that is the case. That is when the sale ends.

hmm, yes I noticed that was when the sale ends..so in effect if you buy the 12 month upgrades now you only actually get upgrades for less than a month. That doesn't seem right.

Looking at the Bitwig site it's says

"Extend an existing upgrade plan for another 12 months or upgrade from Bitwig Studio 1 and get 12 months of upgrades." So surely that must include Bitwig 3.0? There won't be updates for Bitwig 2?

Then it says

" Buy Bitwig Studio and save big, you’ll get Bitwig Studio 3 for free when it comes out. "

Which is clear.

Uncle E, any chance you can clarify that if we get the update plan it will include Bitwig 3.0 onwards (depending on when it gets activated)?

Oh, that's interesting. I was only going by what Plugin Boutique's site says. I will ask Bitwig for clarification.

Probably just an incorrect wording on the Plugin Boutique site. If Bitwig actually charges an upgrade fee on top of the upgrade plan we will see a community melt down of epic proportions. :)

+1. I actually like the Bitwig model (I don't always need it updated), but it's such bad PR as it's so unclear to people. Some people think it's a subscription and they can't use it when it expires, some people think it's only for the in-between upgrades and it cost more for the version 3 and version 4 (bitwig's fault for having poor wording) and it seems no one can say definitively.

That is poor wording. I bought the $129 update from PB and activated it on June 14. I was upgrading from version 1.x BTW. My Bitwig account now shows that my plan expires on June 14 2020, so unless version 3.0 is REALLY delayed, I will get it :) I decided to install 2.51 since there is a lot of new content for me, but the 3.0 beta versions links are in my account. The "subscription" gets you all updates for one year, be they right or left of the decimal point. After the end date, the DAW continues to work exactly the same, but only the release version as of your end date will be available to install from your Bitwig account from that date forward. It IS a bit confusing, and I did a lot of research before jumping back in.

Waves are having a 50% off everything sale. All their $29 plugins cost $59 now so half off means that you'll pay $29.50.

Their marketing tactics are just really twisted.

For me the usual $29 suspects are now $39, so you do end up saving a little. Unfortunately there's nothing really interesting to me at that price.

The Waves bundles seem to be priced lower than usual and there are many $19.50 individual plugins.

Ok, thanks for letting me know! I was just wondering some of those usual $29 plugins that cost $59 now.
