how was this sent out? per email? also own 2 neural dsp plugins and would have jumped on that, but i didnt got notified by it
but i really feel your pain @WintermintP, it also happend to me in the past on different purchases, that i bought a plugin and just a couple of days later it was be on sale… that is frustrating of course. even more frustratring if it comes from a company that doesnt do sales or flash sales very often, that is than really a surprise.
BUT, on the other hand, when you make a decision on a purchase, you do agree with the price you pay and the product you will get, all is fine.
You already know, sooner or later the plugin will be sold cheaper, but you dont know when?,if its a year later, you might think differently, but if its 3 days later, its really a pity and very bad luck. but also that is life… perhaps the company is kind enough to compensate for, thats ultimately up to them how nice and understand they are, or are not.
Once Companies will introduce flash-sales, some customers will also change their purchasing methods, some will never ever again pay the full price, and even if they have to wait 3 years, they will wait for the sale to come and purchase then. or will get another product instead, that is my thinking about it.
there are some companys (we all know who they are, they make great plugins) but their pricing is not taken seriously anymore because there are constantly sales, no one or very few will still pay the full prices for their plugins (which is totally fine if this is their sales strategy (more sales at lower price).
So, i´m looking very forward to new forthcoming Sales @NeuralDSP to expanding my plugin collection
