On the serious side it's sad to see how things have devolved over at Plugin Alliance. Dirk has essentially abandoned the site and only communicates through Facebook and even then he only responds to those that are on his side. Anybody that dares to criticize what's going on gets ignored.

I was amused how the FB group suddenly got cleaned up of the major criticism posts though the comments in other threads still exist. It's good to be the group admin I guess.

Now it's all fan boy nonsense. "I bought all the PA plugins but this is still a great deal and just signed up."
Does that even make sense... nope.

Thanks for this bit of news - I haven't been on FB for a couple of years for certain reasons not germane here so I'm at the mercy of those who do inhabit it.

This "deal" isn't too bad, as long as you are a heavy hitter and get it for $179 or less. $249 seems a bit much IMO.

I see many people saying this is cheaper than buying.... and it kind of is, but you never own the plugins, so it's kind of not.

Its like the difference between renting a house and buying one.

It would be "cheaper" for me since I want both Diezel amps and all the Ampegs, which would cost $500 (at $99 each), but I wouldn't own the license.

I think people are just tired of getting nickel and dimed with so many subscriptions. You can only have so many recurring payments before it's too much to keep track of.

Lets face the reality.
At some point you'll be able to catch a sale and get almost any PA plugin for $25. From the other hand there is no support anymore and PA ignores all your technical tickets regarding bugs e.t.c. So either you are buying a subscription or buying a license, you'll need to re-subscribe / upgrade your license for a fee in order to get newer version and maybe with fixed bugs (not always).
Similar to Pro Tools Ultimate support plan. In 3 years you save enough money for the reinstatement. The psychological aspect is often not taken into account but at the end there is no so much difference between subscription and permanent licenses.
The bad thing with this aggressive marketing is paying no attention to major technical issues.
