    Nothing in my inbox, emails or account today.
    Considering I've spent A LOT of money with this company this year - and as they're marketing team like to call "community" (which really means customers) - I'm really disappointed.
    Anyway - who cares

    Not to mention what Sonokinetic did for the 12 days of Christmas. Now that was thermonuclear.

    Jesus, why do people always have to be so quick in assuming the worst. A lot of people haven't recieved their mails yet, at the last wish list sale i got mine pretty late in the day, so don't worry, you definitely wont be left out.

    Jesus..

    Yet it is obvious that if you always just talk about receiving a gift many people will not expect discount codes. Many people have been wondering about an additional gift. No wonder... they never said "you'll receive discount codes as a gift from us" - which would be fine. Context. ;)
    https://www.spitfireaudio.com/info/faq/wish-list/ They avoid the word "sale" and "discount" like the plague haha...

    A gift to me doesn't cost anything... sales are a way for companies to get people to buy things they usually wouldn't or couldn't buy - which is a good thing for both parties. Again - unless you really make it clear that the gift is a discount code...
    But not a gift as most understand it.
    Ha, whether a sale is thermonuclear does not depend on whether you personally appreciate the libraries.

    Yes....for this it seems there is more time to decide. I´m really in for a choir. Not sure if it will be Requiem or EWC. At the end i´m scared....both...plus a new extern SSD. I like more the intimate not too epic in your face stuff.

    I got Lacrimosa which is great so I won't be getting Requiem but it's a GOOD deal!

    I wanted to get LCO for peppering my strings with various flavours but from the articulation list I learned that some things were sampled for certain sections only. Like why celli and basses+celli don't have a staccato dig or sul pont tremolo?
    Dunno now...

    This is the same guy who said some nasty things about Christian in Christian's thread a while ago and quickly deleted it. It didn't occur to me to take a print screen and when I tried to reply to his post it was gone.

    Maybe some of you that were following that thread received an email notification? I let it go to avoid stupid drama and if you look at his post history, he acts like nothing happened but this is too much.

    In the spirit of the Holidays, I wish that you go fuck yourself @Mr. Edinburgh and I'm glad that you finally showed your true colors.

    40% is good in my books... like really good. Better than 39%!

    I think it's a question of perspective. Spitfire has had these Wishlist sales (2x a year) for a couple of years now. They always call these discounts a gift (fitting in to the Wishlist-idiom). The discounts used to be like 25% of individual products and 15% on collections. Since last year (their 10th anniversary) they upped the discounts considerably, hence the thermonuclear quote. They never said it was going to be the biggest sale in VI-world, just their biggest sale. Which is almost correct. Only the BF collection The Ton was ever cheaper than 50% off.

    I actually do think that appreciation of a library plays a huge role in how one values a particular sale. True, I could have bought products that were discounted much more - if I would have wanted them, which I did not. Words and percentages are just advertising. In the end it comes down to what you are willing to pay for any given product.
