Just thought I’d post in case anyone is looking to get the Spire VST:

“ Hi!

Hum... Sold an unfinished product and now discontinue it and offer me, to give them more money to get the supported product... Hum... I have clear opinion for this and never will buy anything from them.

But thanks for posting. Some may use this offer.

I guess it depends on how much you paid for ReSpire. After you take that amount off the cost of the VST it might not be so much. You could look on that sum as an “upgrade” price.
I don’t need the VST but thought it’d be of interest to some.
I guess the same could be said of RS who don’t seem bothered about fixing bugs in older stuff. RDK comes to mind again.

Maybe, but the ReSpire guys made a lot of promises regarding fixes, improvements, features and nothing was realized. RS doesn't made promises.

I got this offer two years ago or so - in total I didn’t pay more for the VST than the usual sales price of ~120 bucks. Which was fine to me for having a version with usable GUI.

I already knew about this offer, and it is as shitty today as it was then.

I bit the bullet a few years back and just brought the vst version didn't even bother with getting the discount.

I wonder if they will give me credit on some patches?

This is the same offer they have had running for years. The RE version is pretty much unusable except as a preset player because of workflow and UI issues. The VST is great and keeps getting better.

They replied to my crossgrade question within 10 minutes. I wrote back that I’d got it in a bundle and haven’t heard from them since hahahahaha 😂

The UI on the RE is quite bad, cramped, and confusing at times - especially the mod and FX section.

But the oscillators and filters are still outstanding, and since this is Reason why not spend some time setting up a personally streamlined Combi to sort out the annoying bits.

Having said that, I'm glad I didn't pay full price for this abandoned thing (got it bundled in a Rig)

Some like up/down scrolling instead of pop up menus :-D

Personally i agree to you. The UI was never really thought through.

And in the meantime i replaced ReSpire by other high class synths. Spire is not the top synth anymore today. There are a lot of competitors and you have plenty of choices. Spire is clearly not a must-have.

After emailing Reveal Sound advising I had Respire Ive revived a voucher for 49 GBP towards it... not sure if that would work against their current sale. But as I have just picked up the U-he synths I’ll pass on the Spire VST for now

Yeah it works. The sale price I think is $129 but then you have to add VAT (25% here in Sweden) so the code essentially just covers the Tax.

I got a good deal around March - I had ReSpire from the Synth Rig and requested for a crossgrade offer, they gave me a $59 coupon and it stacked with the $129 sale price of spire VST - so I got the VST for $70 (no tax).
