View Full Version : Why were the Pro pre release discounts so early?

This is one thing that I don't understand. EWQL has dropped the price of Gold considerably, and is having a huge Platinum group sale - meaning tons of new customers - yet their Pro 30% price expired two and a half months ago. Its silly, I think. The choir's 30% off pre release price is holding until the day it ships - why will the Pro discounts have expired 3 months before they ship?

I think a lot of the new customers EWQL captured with the crossgrade price for Gold and the group buy price for Platinum would like the opportunity to buy the pro upgrades at 30% off.

Extend the Pro Upgrade pre release price!!

(please :D )

No one else is even slightly interested in this?? Come on!! The pre release price ended on January 31st even though the library doesn't ship until MAY 31st!!

I can tell you, Doug, that a lot of people are going to do exactly what I'm going to - wait until a group buy for the pro upgrades, even if it takes a year, if we can't buy them at the 30% off price.

EWQL is so savvy business wise, its silly that they don't see that all of their new Gold crossgrade and Platinum group buy customers would like to buy the Professional Upgrades at the reduced price!

:confused: :( :confused:

IIRC, the discount on the Pro orchestras was announced after the Gold group buy started. So it may yet happen. But I don't know.

I would certainly up for ordering Gold Pro, I missed out on the 30% pre-release discount offered earlier.

I posted this in another thread but it definitely applies here:

I didn't even know there was a Pro upgrade deal at one time! I got in on the GOLD group buy deal and I have to admit I didn't completely understand what I was getting into at the time so I probably wouldn't have even noticed anything about a Pro upgrade discount. Now that I have GOLD, I am tremendously impressed. I had to come up with some quick cues for a dinner theater production and everyone thought I did it with live players (Oboe, Bassoon, Harp and some light Percussion - all from GOLD). I wish I had known what GOLD could do for me and then I would have kept my eyes peeled for a preorder discount (still looking and hoping!). The Platinum Group Buy isn't tempting for me simply because I get tremendous sound out of GOLD. It's plenty for me and if I fooled some REAL musicians the other night (not on purpose, of course - I quickly told them about GOLD) then I am perfectly happy with what I have. The Pro upgrade will be on my future list, though. I could use those additional articulations! I guess I'll have to suffice myself with CHOIRS for now (can't wait!).

So you see, Doug? You have at least three customers still interested in a pre order for the Pro Upgrades. If you re-offer the Pro Upgrade at 30% off, I'm going to get Gold and Gold Pro at $1200 rather than just Gold at $500 then waiting a year for a group buy for Pro. I'm sure the others would do the same.

Come on, whaddaya say? :p

That's good to see cause I refused to order the upgrades before when there was no demo's. Look forward to hearing the FX and harmonics.
