Sorry, no, we aren't able to sell EastWest upgrades.

@Scottyb: Yeah---big! I'm not sure that you'd be able to download and unpack/install it to a 1GB SSD unless it was blank (and actually had 1TB available, not like the 0.9TB that's actually available on a blank 1TB HDD). You'd probably also have to optimally schedule the sequence of the seven downloads/installations. I can tell you that my original installation of Hollywood Brass Gold is about 19GB and the Hollywood Brass Diamond Opus Edition is 188GB---about ten times larger. Maybe it was the time of day but downloading and unpacking/installation took about five hours. The woodwinds library appears to be 50% larger and the strings library is about three times larger (~440GB). The other modules are smaller and download and install more than proportionately faster. I do have the storage available and I'm not complaining; I'm just surprised at the size. It looks like it might work out to be one heck of a deal for $300.

I picked up a fresh 2TB SSD to download and install. And a second one as a backup. That feels secure and future-proof. I might expand my Opus in the future since I like the fast workflow with that player and of course the libraries. Not as resource-friendly as the Synchron stuff, on my setup, but I will get a bigger computer in a year or two.

I bought the upgrade yesterday by sonuscore for 279 Euro. Best price ever in Germany. On Eastwest Website tax is on top, so it costs 350 Euro. After 4 Hours it was downloaded and installed.
4 hours? That doesn't sound like german internet to me :emoji_laughing:

That sounds like the ultimate solution. Right now I have it sitting on a 10TB internal SATA. I have ample (192GB) RAM---I'll see how that works out.
