Regardless of it in the beginning, middle, end- if it's in beta they're most likely not going to talk about it until it's ready for release.

Well, apart from the fact that they said they'd do exactly the opposite and have consistently told us they'd give us information before release.

I really hope the VE Pro 7 release does not play out like that.

To be sure, VSL does not want to release information about VEP7 features that are not yet fully and successfully working. I just hope substantial information and release is at most a few weeks away instead of months.

I do not expect that I will feel burned by this information-less pre-order. My history with VSL suggests I will not be disappointed with the product once I get my hands on it. But I hope I'm not still relying on a general confidence a month from now.

Agreed on everything you wrote. Have you purchased the upgrade yet?

I sympathize with the 6 month wait for the Syncron Player. Got one even worse. Back a few years East West announced a majpr update for their then flagship orchestral library. People could pre-order at a frozen price and be assured of being the first to get it. This frozen price was not a discount as such because they said the price might well go up upon release. We were also told it would only be a couple of months. Turned out it was more like 18 months AND they charged our credit cards at time of order. So there is precedent for screwing over customers. Which is why I haven't yet ordered the upgrade (VEPro 6 owner).

 

There is a precedent for screwing over customers???? Your logic is because East West did something then everyone else should be blamed? Ridiculous.

Don't know where you got your interpretation of my logic. Never said anyone else should be blamed for anything. Just that not every company respects it's customers. And who's to say Vienna wouldn't do the same thing? They did it with the Syncron player so there's precedent within Vienna itself.

I don't think you're interpreting this right.  VSL have consistently said more information would come before release, and that's important because we have the pre-release discount.  My guess is that its far more likely that the testing phase is taking longer than they'd hoped (as is so often the case with software) and they want to keep their powder dry until they know everything is going to work out.  I'd be staggered if VEP Pro 7 was out by the end of the month.  Delighted to be proven wrong - asuming 7.0 is stable, mind.

What am I not interpreting? They're not releasing info period, it's as simple as that. It will be ready when it's ready.

I don't recall them saying they would end the pre-sale without announcing the final release date first. I'm sure they'll give you all the info before the pre-sale ends.
