Ah, the monthly wolf subscription, very important! :lol: Are you on the domesticated or wild tier? :lol:

Adobe (hate it but it's been a necessity; I keep meaning to try Affinity and escape the Adobe lock-in)
Netflix
Prime
Audible
Contact lenses (via Boots)

I feel genuinely dirty about Prime given the reports of poor working conditions and environmental concerns over packaging (I once suggested that if Amazon shipped elephants they'd come in boxes built for blue whales), but they've made it so damn convenient as a one-stop shop for so much stuff, it's genuinely hard to quit.

Axing Sneaky Pete and The Tick, hardly classics but solid comfort shows, might have made it easier, but then the Beltalowdas done gone saved the genuinely class The Expanse...

Yeah, Prime is a necessary evil. We have it because we're constantly using Amazon and it's just too cost effective for delivery of necessary items.

Prime and the music app are simply nice bonuses.

I activate my Prime membership whenever I order some things otherwise it is dormant for around eight months out of the year. I try to make good use of my Prime months.

I don't think Output Arcade is for me. Limited selection of scraps in each kit. Interface is way too much. The modifiers (modulation) aren't very amusing. Setting the key can be misleading because I have a loop that is clearly not in the specified key according to my ears. Ain't nobody got time for that. You see? There is a logical process here. :lol:

Haha yes, Wild tier of course ;)

Yeah, Amazon employees probably find it quite dreadful I can imagine. Packaging... yes like when I ordered a USB key and it came in an envelope 2 feet long. Score for mother nature! oh and then the plastic wrapping inside was a whole other treat. Amazon's return policy is also hard to resist. Don't like it? send it back! Think I'll watch some law and order tonight on Prime. My new bluetooth headphones and iPad case are on their way Saturday. Sigh... :)

I really like Arcade. There's really no VST like it, so they have something unique in that sense. The interface is nicely laid out and easy to use. You can also use your own loops, and all the effects/modifiers with them. You can build your own sets. Something I haven't tried yet but will explore. The key changes don't work so well. Some loops/lines just don't translate well in another key and/or you don't hear much of a difference between say a major/minor key which is a little strange.
As for the Lines, I find them hit and miss. They've got a little bit of everything though and a nice way of adding a touch of this or that into a track.
I subbed, then unsubbed, then resubbed. It's the interface that really draws me in. It's just fun and inviting to quickly get something going. At 10 bucks (cough.. 13 CND) I'll gladly pay that once a month. Hell, I spent like $40 bucks today. Starbucks, Kabul Express, Tim Hortins. 20 on gas..

Maybe I'm going about it the wrong way looking for core ideas when I should be using it as a compliment. I still have a few weeks.

I must add the Output sounds are a PITA to mix for me including the Exhale I have. I don't mind it really (that's why I have ProQ3 :lol:) but damn those sounds are pretty wild.

Cancelled Audible and YouTube to cover the cost of joining an entrepreneurship club and also started EastWest Composer Cloud. :twisted:

I cancelled my trial of Output Arcade.

I haven't chimed in on the R11 mania but I will not be updating so no worries there.

Update:

Music Entrepreneur Club: $24.99
EastWest Composer Cloud: $19.99
Plugin Alliance $16.99
Splice $7.99

Now we are cooking with gas. :fire:
