So first of all, a few people saw this coming and I think it's a great move! The more they can get on board the better! Two questions though;

Will VSTs purchased in the PH shop sync through the authoriser? So one button press and bam; all our REs and VSTs installed?

And secondly, if so, is it possible to get existing VST licenses ported over to the rack store? Or is this likely to vary from developer to developer?

Hey Paul!

No, only Rack Extensions will sync through Authorizer. All VST downloads will happen through the VST developers' websites.

No, only VST products purchased through the Propellerhead shop will be available in your PH products page (there's now a new VST tab!).

Thanks man! Ahh yeah I kinda understand that - I guess then PH would end up hosting everyone else's stuff and it'd be a total nightmare. So fair enough :)

Congrats on the big release! Hope today goes nice and smoothly for you all.

So what benefit is there buying it from the PH store?

I was hoping they would host it so you have a one port call for all your stuff and it would not have matter if the VST company stopped making the product etc just like with RE, there is that sad case where the community lost a developer but his RE is still there.

If I understand correctly, the link to the downloads (hosted on the developer's websites) and serial will be in your account. Slight time saver.

Correct. If you buy a VST in our shop, the product and serial will be available under the VST tab on your Products page.
