Im glad I'm not imagining the prices going up.

guess this was bound to happen with the changes, it's a shame it's happening to some very old rack extensions you would think the price would go down rather than up but I guess we will have to see if the sales offer bigger saving on a more frequent basis.

Yes it's almost $ 100 more expensive (after conversion € to $) than the other side of the Atlantic

It's to do with the exchange rates for the most part. The £ has been unstable for a while (partially due to Brexit and now also our pathetic record vs the COVID epidemic), and has steadily dropped vs the Euro since its inception. The US thing is different and can easily be justified by the market size - it consistently accounts for nearly half of all global sales.

I'm browsing through the shop just now and getting currency switching from CAD to Euros to GBP depending on what page I'm looking at.

Actually I would have to disagree, I've been purchasing in euros and dollars for quite some time and the exchange rate isn't really much different this year than last year. £1=€1.12 I've purchased as low as 1:1 and £1=$1.25 again I've purchased lower, so it's nothing more than a price increase.

Making money on currency trading requires instability, surely that is the whole point of that exercise?

Regardless, it is a hard fact that since the inception of the Euro, the £ has fallen steadily against it.

thx


i would really like some information by RS about this.

Does someone know which "EU-Law" ( if it is this?) or what kind of change in the EU the "Culprit" is ?

This seems very strange to me. :roll: :twisted: :o :?


edit: maybe its nothing from the EU itself, maybe its "just" a change by at RS .?

Maybe Reason Studios are doing some sort of "Use what you have already"- campaign with these new price adjustments. Well I for one am greatful. My GAS just went down dramatically. Thank you Reason Studios. Won't be buying anything new for quite some time now. :thumbs_up:

Transport costs are much higher today.

Some REs are still worth their price even with the new price tag. Absolutely. But some REs were already set WAY too high before. And now they are even more ridiculous.
Basically everything from Softube: Softube Tube-Tech Classic Channel €399. Softube Trident A-Range €229. Softube Tube Delay €99.00. Softube Spring Reverb €99. Who buys a spring reverb for €99?
Umpf, Reason Drum Kits, Layers synths, A-list stuff. They were all overpriced before with their €99 price tag. Now they're all at €109. Seriously, Processed Pianos for €109??? I mean come on! That has to be the worst deal ever. In reality it's worth about 10 bucks.

A lot of RE prices should be going down over time, not up. The market gets more saturated all the time and their answer is to raise their prices, on old devices. I have a hard time thinking this move will actually benefit Reason Studios, or RE developers either for that matter. I want to support the RE market, but this was the wrong move imo.
If they want to raise their prices, maybe do it on new REs that gets released, but leave the old ones as they are.

If that's the price of a Softtube I'd hate to think how much a Hardtube is. :shock:

Anyway. It must be good if it costs more than Reason itself!

Imagine the "75% off" price tag during BF - it'll sell like hotcakes.
And who doesn't like 90% off tags?
IMHO it's all just a ploy to sell more units when people are actually willing to buy. If people are happy to pay that much in a non-sale period, they have too much money good on them :)
As much as I despise schemes like that, pretty much everyone in the industry is doing it :( I get the *why*...

It's OK. We need the $American$ RE discount so that we can save up for our medical bills later in life. That $25 savings should come in very handy.
