Not forever. But also not as a way to make your want to subscribe instead as a means to save money. That's my argument.
So you'd prefer they'd time a pay increase for their staff away from a new product launch to diversify/increase revenue? Got it.
Not sure where you get that. Not sure I understand what you meant. I don't like your attitude right now.
If you think of how much money we currently spend on version upgrades, imagine upgrading each new version, which I understand is circa 1.5 years apart based on how it has been, according to what others have said here.
That's €230 every 3 years.
One year subscription costs €240
If they did as another user says, to whom my comments in the topic were directed to even though I didn't quote him, which is to inflate the prices in order to make it like it would be cheaper to subscribe, then the price increase would have to be ridiculously high if they expect €240 per year to be considered cheap compared to the alternative perpetual license upgrade. Do you follow?
I think it would be stupid to go that route. Money doesn't grow on trees for me, and I can't afford €240 per year right now. I got other expenses. I can go my entire career from this point on without ever upgrading Reason again. I don't need the subscription or any new devices or any upgrades.
I want to have the new features and the new devices, but I don't need them and can live a happy life without them.
Therefore if they ever went that route I would have to just skip a bunch of versions so it makes sense to me financially, cause it's a luxury, not a necessity, and I can afford the current prices and even reasonable increase in price. But a move to increase the price so high that €240 X year sounds cheap?
I can wait a few years without upgrading.
However, I don't think they'll go that route because I trust they know what they're doing, as opposed to what one other certain user claims.
Yeah back to the synth... I wish they had just released it today instead of teasing it.
