I didn't see any fine print - maybe the MP team have finally decided to go with full versions of the software this time. This would be a great thing.

The claim is "and get savings of up to $8,779" which is fine as long as these are full versions. I have felt misled in the past when the promised savings were based on comparing full featured (and full priced) plugs with ones that were missing some features. To make matters worse, the limitations were buried a few links down. FWIW, I'd rather have fewer full version plugs than lots of hobbled ones.

If there are limitations to the MP plugs the info should be on the same page as the promised savings.

More like Massive Disappointment. All plugins are retreads from previous MPs. Nothing new or tempting this time around.

Well, I guess it's a good thing for people like me who upgraded to HD just after the last Massive Pack deal was over, so, yeah, it's not for everyone... But I'd be very curious, what I actually get for my money... Slimmed-down / limited versions don't sound too appealing... However, roughly $3,000 off an Accel card... that's pretty OK, you don't get them much cheaper on eBay...

But yeah, I'm waiting as well until detailed info becomes available...

This is more like MP 5.5, it seems. I am kinda' surprised that Digi's Reel Tape or Velvet, Strike or Structure weren't in there. Oh well, I just bought all of those anyways(And I already have almost everything else in that pack), so I guess this is a blessing in disguise, hehe!!!! I didn't see a MSRP, though. Is it the usual price??

I used to LOVE to buy these, but last year's was pretty iffy, and this one is deja vu all over again. Maybe Digi is running out of partners who want to play this game. I know that eventually it becomes pretty tough for the 3rd party companies to service MP owners as they upgrade the plugs. My experience tells me that you're better off spending the same money on three really killer plug-ins anyway.

This is a joke of a bundle. It's not really even that great for new HD owners.

Yup - the only new one is the Harmony 4 from TC Electronic... Which by the way sells at $999 so I guess this one makes it worth while...

Other than that I think they should hire some guys over there at MP with a better memory in the upper regions. It's like you say a composite of earlier MP's
