Thanks for the support!antic604 wrote: ↑22 Jul 2019I'm super torn about this RE
On one hand, it IS groundbreaking and awesome, likely replacing 80% of Players out there - for that alone, the developer deserves the appreciation* and money! On the other however, I KNOW I won't do anything complex with it, because I lack time and... imagination / knowledge. It's like getting Reaktor or Softube Modular to just play the factory presets... Do I really need it?

Don't sweat it man, when I'm assessing a musical purchase I just ask myself "will this help me achieve something new or something I've struggled with in the past when producing?". Every RE I create starts with this question, and for me and seemingly a lot of other people the answer is "yes" with Delta.
This isn't the case for everyone though, using Delta does require a certain amount of hand dirtying. I'm the first to admit buying it for patches alone is barely scratching the surface on its abilities as its a very contextual and exploration based device. It also can't be understated how many excellent Player releases there have been as of late, and Delta can't _literally_ do everything, at least not yet .
That being said, I will do my marketing shtick and say if you are interested, this is a good time to buy. The sale is on for another week or so (ends the 31st) and this will be the cheapest price for quite some time. I will never do paid upgrades, but can't say I will never raise the initial price as more nodes and features are added. I have an extended support cycle planned, not just with product updates, but with patches and videos as well.
