Well, if you cant say from the bottom of your heart that its absolutely worth $75, then if you had paid $102 for it you might think it was a bit steep.

I'm not even saying that as an indicator of the quality of the instrument! It's a highly personal preference that I can make the sounds I want in other ways, be it by composing in LSDj, writing my own Gameboy code, building something in Reaktor or something else. Each to their own needs.

Consider people with other professions. Look at the pricing for Dassault Catia or CADSoft Eagle.

no u~

Most people aren't complaining. Pay it or don't.

yeah i think for the amount of research and hard work that's goes into making chipsounds it's a fair price

well i wouldnt pay £75 for a vsti but everyone who has it seems to rate it highly

Keep in mind that a few days ago, Plogue Chipsounds didn't cost £75. You chose that by failing to thwart Brexit.

harsh!!

Though I don't mean to get too geopolitical, the truth is you are under the influence of current events and your sense of value of anything is skewed until further notice.

I appreciate what Plogue creates, though for all the drama it's made I wish he hadn't gotten involved in the ALYS project.

maybe when we've left the eu we wont have to pay sales tax

& then plogue chipsounds will cost £63 instead

just hold out a couple of years guys!

I got it when it was on sale for something like £30 so maybe just keep an eye out for a sale.

Eh? Drama?

What happened? did the alys guy break out from plogue and go awol? rogue?

RE: Brexit, I mean that it is unwise to complain about the cost of an unneeded item when the economy is unstable and you don't know what food, rent, and petrol will cost once things readjust.

I complained about the price of the TE when it came out, but these things have ways of sorting themselves. If you like using other ways to make the sounds, good for you.

ALYS has been a 3-4 year dumpster fire on the Vocaloid side of things, though there are plenty of reasons for it. Finally having a publicly sold synthesizer product solves a lot of the drama, so it hasn't been a thing for a while. My interest in it is limited because I can't write songs in French.

Hi!

63GBP is the going rate on our store. Are you adding VAT? You can usually deduce it if you have an account.

Back to working hard on the many followups...
