    100 days demo is really decent, but there's no benefit if I am not able to purchase the product afterwards, I don't want to rent stuff, I like to own things. And 10 bucks per month is a bad joke, that's more than I pay for Amazon Prime which gives me access to thousands of movies, a huge music library and premium shipping.

    And before someone asks where the connection between those two is: Just speaking about value for money. I mean, apparently Arcade (I love that name btw) comes with thousands of samples, but it is still only one VST.

    Arcade only works if you dance while the loops are playing... :scout::dancedance::elephant:

    Looks like the Stylus upgrade we've been waiting for...

    Splice with the dedicated player is what I thought.

    Splice ($10/mo for 100 samples/synth patch downloads per month, unlimited preview) is a decent service for what it's worth and Arcade's terms looks good enough (unlimited use for $10/month, can still playback after the expiration). It's pretty generous, in fact!

    It all depends on the content - if they have a supply from many loop developers like Splice - but I love the premise. I'd take a $10 subscription with renewed contents than a static set of loops for $100 at once any day, but if the loop content only comes from Output it kind of rip the service's appeal for me.

    Good option for poor people. I also like rent-to-own models.

    For sample packs $10/mo is extremely cheap, considering I used to have to buy a $39 sample pack and end up using only a few kicks and hats, one bass shot and one or two risers.

    Then you should subscribe to Noiiz. At 99$ a year currently, with many hundreds of sample packs that you can download and keep forever, presets, instruments, etc.

  9. My suspicions about subscription instruments were confirmed. I signed up for Arcade, downloaded and installed. All fine. Then when I launched it I couldn't login. First it said that I wasn't online which is of course rubbish as I am always online (double checked anyway). When I tried again it said that my PC is already registered and that I needed to contact support. Seriously? I did the right thing and uninstalled everything and moved on. I just hope that East West and Output remain the only companies who do this subscription model. I just don't see that it will serve musicians very well. You just increase the potential support by x-fold.
