For what it's worth, Sweetwater and Vintage King are showing the price at $459. I guess this is the real street price. We'll have to see if the upgrades will be available through dealers as well, or only through Digi.

This is what I’ve seen from the beginning
What is your point? Is this not great value to you?

It might be a great value for people who don't own any of the instruments in the pack; what dj-ike is saying is that avid hasn't given us any information regarding upgrade pricing or anything else besides the pack being 499.00

Here's a video of Jeremiah from Avid talking off the top of his head about the Pro Tools Instrument Expansion Pack at NAMM:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ol_x8kJyk40

A very disturbing quote from Jeremiah 38 seconds into the video:
"...we are also going to have upgrades available for any customers who bought one of the VIs after December 15th of last year (2009), will get a FREE update..."

I bought the virtual instrument package (Strike, Velvet, Structure, Hybrid, Transfuser) about 6 months ago and would like to know how I can update to the new VI Expansion package.

Well, nobody exactly knows yet. That's what we're discussing here. Hopefully in a few weeks?

I bought mine less than a month ago, haven't even registered all the instruments yet because I already had a few!
