    Yep, can't buy it still.

    Very very curious on how these sound. Are there any audio examples on gearslutz or something?

    Yeah Steven did some comparisons to the hardware counterparts in the long VMR thread.

    Those don't do much for me though, it's always better to demo them yourself

    I recently purchased the Metric Halo bundle so I will pass for now. There's always some easter sale or so eventually.

    Not heard anything about that, though the intro price will be 149 dollars rather than 299

    Of course, Slate and timing as usual :)

    I don't expect a black friday deal if the introductory price is 50%, but I'll wait nonetheless if the intro price covers black friday.

    I would think you'll be waiting 6-12 months before there's any kind of discount on VMR with it being a new product.

    Looks like it, VMR product page has disappeared and I've actually managed to get a demo licence installed to my ilok, just waiting for the installer download now!

    I know, and i dont mind building up the hype for a release, but if you say something and fail to deliver repeteadly it is gonna piss people off....i guess he really believes in "there is no such thing as bad publicity"

    IMHO it would be better is he didnt make such promises and just release it when it is ready as Fabfilter or waves do. Those companies have also salesmen and marketers but dont go pissing people off by making false promises.

    This! The delay is nothing compared to AIR EQ. I will probably retire before it's released. :eek:

    Most of the time software is released late. The larger companies usually have a target *quarter* rather than a certain month or date. Even then the first iteration ends up being buggy. :heh:

    We're living in a time where there is nothing that's absolutely special about any single piece of software that makes it a must have, there are tons of alternatives. Companies not only have to sell software, they have to sell support and goodwill.

    I hope you're being facetious.
