I, likewise see no mention of those of us who own Acid Pro 4, Sound Forge 6, and Vegas Video 3. After having purchased all of them, and having upgraded all of them from previous versions, AND not having been around the SF software when CD Architect 4 was a big thing, seems a bit unfair not to give users like us the opportunity to purchase at the $99.95 price. Most of us don't have endlessly deep pockets. Shouldn't this kind of loyality be considered? The products are great, and many of us don't complain like stuck pigs when new releases are buggy, but that doesn't mean we want our pockets picked. Please consider showing the same kind of support we show you when we live through the bugs without complaints. The mostly silent majority deserves that much, don't you think?
Suggestion re CDA5b download page - how about updating the 'build' number on the main page so we can see-at-a-glance if it is different to what we already have ?
It should. Mine shows here that the latest posted build is build 45. As of this writing, that's the first and so far only public beta posting. We're hoping to update it before the end of the month, and we'll post in the forum as well when that happens.
If you've registered all of those products with a valid email address, you have almost certainly seen the emails that come out shortly after a new product is available with special pricing for limited periods of time. I know we've made some pretty nice offers to our past customers.
While I personally cannot promise similar deals for CDA5 (for one thing, I'm in engineering, not sales or marketing), I can't see any reason they wouldn't be doing the same thing again.
So, my advice is to watch your in-box after the launch. I'm sure there will be chatter here or in the other forums of any deals offered.
"... seems a bit unfair not to give users like us the opportunity to purchase at the $99.95 price."
As with all of our new releases, there will be some kind of promotional pricing. Promotional pricing has not yet been determined, and will be announced closer to the product launch. Before you ask me when launch will be, I do not know just yet and I will post that info when I have it :-)
