Hello !  When we have  the VSL Special Edition Standard (version DVD) is it possible  to download the Special Edition Brass Extended (135€). 
I hope so !

Best regards.

Sorry, not possible.

DVD  standard content can only be expanded with the DVD extended content.

Same goes for download products: Download standard content to Download extended content.

That is too bad.
Because I won't buy the extended DVD, but was really interested in the Extended Brass Download.
I think it's in your best interest to make it possible to extend the DVD version with downloads.

Oh yes Johannet, it's too bad...

Is it a technical problem Herb ?

Yeah, it's too bad... You would only need to "unlock" the necessary samples on your drive. Why is'nt that a possible upgrade??

there is no extended sample content packed with splitted licenses on your DVD Special Edition,

just only one license for the whole extended stuff,

so it's not possible to unlock exclusively extended brass instruments for example

further our webshop programmingis based on a simple but essentail rule:  

extended content of any collection is only available if the corresponding standard content is registered,

or if standard and extended are purchased at the same time

to offer a kind of standard/extended crossmixing would mean to rewrite the whole shop interface,

which is not so easy executable...

Hello Herb,

a solution would be to convert the DVD license to the download license.

I wouldn't mind if this means I have to download the content again.

(Now, with a fast download:) 

Please consider to provide such an option - it is sad that the ones that

where the first to order SE (DVD) have less flexibility than later (download)

users.

Download products are a great way for companies to make money. You can be sure that if it was just a question of a couple of days' programming VSL would offer even more flexibility in their download products - the fact that they don't in this case points to the fact that, as Herb suggested, it would require an unfeasible amount of work. Taken as a whole, I think what's on offer is already pretty flexible, and if push came to shove I can see why it's better for a company to develop new products rather than laboriously create different ways of selling older ones.

I am a software- and web-developer and i can't imagine, that a change like that would require a rewrite of the whole shop.
In the end, you are the ones loosing sales, so please think about this again. I wouldn't even mind having the Brass extended files on my harddisk twice.

Herb already said it would, and he should know. With respect, have you ever programmed an internet sales set-up as complex as that of VSL? As a non-programmer I have no first hand experience of doing that, but from talking to friends who run an internet sales company I know that even seemingly small structural changes require a lot of programming.
