Very disappointing, I guess there are always opportunists, sadly seems like part of human nature (another part of human nature is to be honest and report the loophole). Humans lose sight of the consequences of their actions, a lot of life depends on us understanding this rippling karmic effect. Shame its not emphasised more.

This is very sad and ungrateful. The 90% off is already so generous, that one can get the whole bundle for the average price of one of your plugins. And 10% goes to a great cause which is an extra motivation. I am really sorry to hear this and thank you for keeping the deal going because I am trying to gather the money to get it in time (the legitimate way!). The spirit of this company has always been exemplary and you have many true supporters here. But by all means secure yourselves against the fraud. Let's try to keep our faith in humanity intact against the odds!

I don't own any of your plugins so I haven't used the account system there, but generally if a system lets me do something I am assuming that what I'm doing is allowed. So maybe the person just thought it was OK? Just another perspective that perhaps (hopefully) it was not done with malicious intent.

Maybe you are right! I am just calming down right now. The users are given time to explain themselves. I just want to offer a fair deal here for everyone.

@ BlackRooster ,

I'm having a bit of a time here. I just purchased the 90% discount bundle with Paypal. When I went to click on the Windows download, I got a "404 File Not Found" (somethingsomething.zip -- didn't write it down)

I did not create an account, so I tried creating one, but it said the address already exists. Okay. So I tried the "Forgot password" using my email and answering the security questions, and got a "No matching account found."

Any ideas what's going on here?

Understand the issue. It is worth noting, I believe, that if I recall correctly, Izotope or Waves had a sale where that was actually part of how it worked. Your upgrade path pricing could be applied to the discounted price. If you haven't already, put a notice on the site about both discounts not being able to be used. I don't think all of these customers were being malicious. Multiple discounts are possible at a lot of places for all sorts of items beyond software too. Just make the policy clear I guess.

I think what you guys are doing is great. I'm not in the market right now for anything more but thank you for doing this.

We are trying to communicate this as good as possible.

Just to make this clear:
1.) We offer the STAYHOME Bundle, which is the All Bundle at 90% discount
2.) We offer an upgrade path to the STAYHOME Bundle, where the intention is to fill up the licenses to have all plugins
3.) Single products can also be bought with that STAYHOME upgrade, but it is not the original intention.
4.) Don't use any voucher code on top of the STAYHOME bundle

I have all of your plugins short of 2, and would think point 2. should be the way to get all plugins licensed... Where can I find that upgrade path?

Thanks in advance

For the avoidance of doubt and to help any one else wanting to upgrade to the StayHome bundle, if you contact BR, Andre will provide an additional discount code. You do not apply this to the StayHome bundle, rather you add your missing (full price) plugins to the basket and apply the code to them, which applies a 90% discount to your basket and hence your missing items are discounted.

Very, very generous offer from BR here, especially as 10% is going to the Covid-19 response fund.

Was exactly the same for me. And it's one of those rare occasions where I'm not feeling guilty after yet another plugin purchase!
Kudos to BRA.

Not really in the market for anything new but I thought I would download and try the plugs.

Really good stuff.

Was especially taken immediately with the Meq5, which blows away the other one Im using. I don't really like most Waves EQs, but the Waves Meq5 had its moments in my mixes. The difference is pretty huge. Not a shock or a ringing endorsement, I think Waves do better things with dynamics processing, but personally it was satisfying. Bravo.

I am saving up to invest in some hardware for myself, but I will donate a bit to the link.

Thanks for being a good example, BR.

Hello! I sent you an email yesterday, asking about the upgrade path. I don't mind waiting if you have many emails to answer, I was just wondering if it went to spam for some reason.

I already bought the bundle. It is just that I already knew the 2A & 3A because I tried them in the past, and not yet the others. But now, I'll be able to test all of them.
