Hello,

since the VI will be released in next times and the good old products will disappear from the world, i have a question:

will VSL still support these libs? Means support with registration, and so on,
I don't want to be suprised, like few years ago when Apple bought Emagic and all support was stopped. Angry

I hope so.

Upgrading from Opus 1/2 to VI SC is far beyond my scopes and, above all, far beyond my budget.

I guess we'll see an Opus 3 with VI interface or something like that, but not too soon...

Stopping the support wouldn't be typical for VSL, I guess!
Opus3 would be nice Big Smile

They shouldn't disappear because they are excellent products and they cater for a significant section of the market!

Let's hope so - maybe if many of us show our desire for continued support here then they'll listen to us! There must be a lot of us with Horizon packages. Big Smile
Best regards,

I've ordered Horizon Glass&Stones + Percussion FX on January 5th (no news from Bestservice, so far...).

I will be very disappointed if those packages are going to be discontinued.

Martin said that both Pro Edition and Horizon series products will stay availible in the future. I also think they're still attractive products even with the VIs around.

Well, but Glass and Stones will go over to ElementsVI - Percussion FX in Percussion VI - so what is the benefit for having these libs available? I think it is nice that you can still make sidegrades to other sampler platforms. Updates for Libs are not that common, so I think it really does not matter that much - once you have them.

Am I missing something?

Price.

We're going toward a (s)lower economic growth in Europe.

IMHO it would be not wise for VSL to dismiss a low-end library.

Not for now.

The same reason that applies for the other VIs - get the samples directly accessable, for custom and personal reprogramming in a sample library and not for playback in a VI. And sometimes price: As for now, you get more content with a Horizon series product than with a Standard VI per spent dollar. But the functionality is a completely different thing.

Well, sure - price and availability of samples - but I pointed out -what is the good if you already have that lib (#once you have them#). The sidelicenses - I think.

Like I do not think that there will be much of additions or updates - well, the upgrade to the VI. And if you look at the Harp for example - I cannot compare it really, because I do not own the HOR Harp nor the Pro Ed. - but the price of the Harp VI standard seems not much more than that of the HOR. So I do not expect the ElementsVI to be that expensive as the SoloStings etc. - more like the Harp.
