    Just curious, I already own 2 out of the 9 expansions in one of the bundles. Is this amount subtracted from my total? I can't imagine that this wan't considered.

    I was thinking the same. They need to make at least 9 variations of the same packs so that it won’t duplicate with what you might already have.

    Better yet it should let you select your own 9. They will sell it quicker to those that have some but not all.

    Similar to others, I have 3 of these packs already. NI definitely needs to allow individuals the ability to pick any 9. This deal is great for people who are starting out or those that are not into buying expansions, but not so great for those who already have more than a few expansion packs.

    ....then you still pay $99, and still get a handful of expansions at a deep discount.

    Or, you know, this isn't the deal for *you*.

    Because every deal isn't created to cater to every possible customer's extremely specific desires.

    So if you own, say, 4, you get 5 more expansions at $20 a pop.

    If you're whining about that, you're not a customer worth targeting to begin with.

    I'm thinking of taking this deal, and I only own 2 of them so it's ok for me. Is it possible to trade these two with others though somehow, or are they all bundled as one?

    They are not bundled as one, you will get the separate plugins in your account. So that means you will also be able to sell/trade the ones you have twice

    That's one thing I love about Universal Audio. They do bundle deals and work with you if you already own some of the plugins by giving you an alternative.

    really?..

    You can buy nine $49 expansions for $99 as a great deal and you think that getting a $98 discount for the two you already own is fair?..

    How about simply doing the math that you are getting seven expansions for $99?.. its still only $14 per pack..lol

    This math works even if you own 3, 4, or 5 packs

    Wrong. Mix and match would be hugely beneficial to those like me who own more than half of what is offered in the packs. Some of us have spent tens of thousands over the years and like a good deal, too. Who are you to say who is worth targeting or not?

    It’s up to NI if they want to sell their products at a discount or not. It’s up to NI if they want to only make two bundles of sound packs. It’s up to NI if the wanted to listen to the customer and make more bundles.

    In other words. Do not shoot down the customers if they would like something different. We don’t blame NI, we just trying to barter with them to see if they can make a change.

    Some people wake up and take their negativity pill and that’s all she wrote for the rest of the day. I’m sure NI can handle it. We don’t need someone not associated with the company telling us that they should not do business with us because we like a little variation available.

    I should also point out that I own 17 of the 19 packs. Nothing wrong with wanting to get in on the savings.

    Also If Rene reads this, I have a voucher in my user account but when I go to use it it says already been redeemed.

    Wrong? Nice assertion, but nowhere did you explain what it was I was wrong about. In fact, it's a non sequitur, as none of what you said logically follows as a response to what I said.


    Did I say that a mix and match deal would not be beneficial to some people? Nope.

    Further, how much money you've spent and whether or not you like a good deal is immaterial to my point.

    Try again.

    If you are sure that the voucher is younger than 6 months and you have not used it for a purchase yet, I would contact NI.

    Seems to me that the way the 9 Expansion packs are put together, they have about 7-8 that are not great sellers and they add 1 thats selling better. In my opinion NI has the best products but they are not so kind to their current users much. Feels like everything they do if for more users and then they never up their customers service game.

    That's every music company in the world. The whole point of discounts is getting new customers, not pleasing the already happy buying ones that own a ton of products.

    Complaining about discounts when they don't apply directly to our individual needs because we already own a ton of similar products (expansions) is super weird to me, and I am usually super critical.
