Hi Nick, on a more serious note I would like to thank you that you haven't abandoned the Refill format. As a big fan of Aura-7 I love this new Refill and hope to see a lot more Refills (may I dare say Rack Extensions) from you in the future.
Cheers

Cheers for the support Gosh.

ReFills will continue to be developed. Next up is new one for Algoritm but it's a couple of months away yet. I'm also considering doing smaller more regular ReFills that are maybe 50 patches with a unique Combinator device for a lower price. We'll see what happens.

The situation with RE's is a bit more complicated as they have nowhere near the relevance they had before R+. The performance of Black Friday and Xmas sales is going to be the big decision maker for me. The main issue I'm seeing at the moment is that new users coming in at the Reason+ entry point don't appear to be interested in RE's (at least not YET...) and RS themselves have been shifting focus away from selling devices preferring the all inclusive subscription route (for example RS RE's are not included in Black Friday sales this year). Ultimately RE's require more time and money to develop, so if sales are performing similarly to ReFills then it doesn't make sense to continue development of RE's. Again, we'll just have to see what happens! :)

If I read that correctly, R+ only users actually seem to be blocked from buying REs at all.
If you're in Aachen, come and visit us at the Voidspace. ... Pool's closed due to corona.

That sounds like a great idea and I would certainly be interested in smaller Refills with a dedicated combinator

Unfortunately, I cannot be of much help here because I already own all your Rack extensions ;) ;)

Whatever you decide, as long it is also availabe for non-subscribers, is fine with me

They aren't blocked from buying RE's or anything like that. I mean, they can see the shop and purchase RE's if they wanted to. They don't seem to be interested in RE's as they have just purchased a cheap subscription that already offers them a large suite of tools along with anything new from RS as it's released - Additional RE's are not needed, it really is that simple.

Sure, over time some people will want to buy additional "add-on" products but R+ has made RE's much less relevant overall. It's very similar to the effect the introduction of RE's had on ReFills actually.
