When I saw Seligs post (viewtopic.php?p=424313#p424313) i was sold lol.

This thing does so much more than just being a modular synth.

For 49$ that's a lot of sonic power...

Its how there gonna get people , its got u thinking should i move now or wait ?

What if complex wont be on sale next week ?

I think instead of just spending I'm gonna think is there anything i really need

What i am looking at can they do things that i haven't already got ?
After deliberating for about an hour I’ve already decided I won’t be buying Complex-1. There are a couple of things I want if they go on sale but I’ve set a max price in my head for them as well. We’ll see.
I already have maia and a refill from pinknoise and i was trying out luna

But i dont need it i have think with those kind of sounds so if i do get anything this time it will be something different

Maybe something a bit cinematic is there anything like that about ? Worth a try?

I think ProjectSam is pretty good for orchestral/cinematic composition:

https://www.propellerheads.com/shop/rac ... l-sampler/

I had it on a subscription plan but I never really used it that much because I centered my work more on strings and ended up using Stringwerk, which is also pretty interesting but as its name says only for string works

Interestingly I'm not excited for May Madness anymore. I think I already own 90% of REs I wanted, the remaining 10% is nice to have, as I'm not nearly using the stuff I have to its full potential. But I also feel the same about VST sales, so there's that.

Looking forward to v11 announcement instead :)

I'm pretty near to that point too, really wish there is a sale for the Noise Engineering Synth Bundle and maybe I'll get the new Sequence device from RobotBeans, then I should be good to go

Yeah, other than some of the newer stuff, I'm not fussed about getting more RE's (or vst's for that matter) but hey, don't want to rain on someones parade, hopefully those who want stuff get a mid year Santa gift!

Wish they’d just get the party started.
I’m betting on the 12th.

Hmm, slowly I'm starting to thinking May Madness won't happen this year.
C-1 is discounted this week, new Rigs v4 were released just yesterday.
Hope I'm wrong, because - despite my comments above - I'd still get few devices.

Most of the REs I've tried over the past year or so have looked great at first, but then I realise I can do a lot of what they do by using my existing devices, a bit of CV dickery and fancy routing. Which means most of the stuff I'd buy would be primarily for workflow enhancement. Which means I don't buy it

Complex 1 and Torsion are the main exceptions, I'll probably grab them at some point

Only 3 days left on the Complex-1 sale. I wouldn't be surprised if Props extended the sale thru May Madness, though. IF we DO get a MM this year. It would be rather strange if we didn't have a May sale, though, wouldn't it? It's a tradition, at this point. It's like taking away Christmas and killing Santa. Dont kill Santa, Props! We like that fat bastard.

Well i have a dilemma, i'm two payments into complex-1 on rent 2 own, so I paused it thinking its cheaper to pay it off now on Deal of the week. But now i'm thinking, every time i use it I just waste time fiddling with it, maybe its not for me but in a few months if I want to fiddle with it again I can pay $10 and fiddle away for a month and stop again.... i dunno its a dilemma!

I'm in the same situation, I could have saved 20 to 30 bucks if I'd take Complex-1 sale price now, but I'm not going to do that exactly because of the theme of this thread. I don't want to give 50 Euros now that I might need for some sale coming up in May Madness just to save 20 or max. 30 Euros for Complex-1 at the end. I don't have 100 Euros to spend right now in REs so I rather keep those reserved 50 Euros for what may come in the next weeks... but that's my case, don't know if it helps you in any way to take a decision :puf_wink:

'May' be there might be a lot of 'Mad' Reason customers because of the lack of any 'May-Madness' this year. :o

Yes! I agree, if there are any tasty deals coming up i cant really afford complex-1 ontop of some other stuff, and the fact i can just restart the complex-1 rent 2 own whenever for $10 is really cool. Its the acid test on if i 'need' it or not i guess...
And I get the feeling maybe propellerheads are having a final push on complex-1 before they hit us with another must have device? or upgrade? or maybe just may madness....
