    i dont how how they can justify 65 euros for expansions, far too much, i get the developers have to make money to make software and update it but if the price was cheaper maybe more people would buy it, price yourself out and what do you think will happen, so i wont be shedding tears for poor manuel shits

    Personally, I don't even like the plugin. Lacks in quality, and the majority of the patches are hardly "playable" on the keys. Nothing more than poorly recorded samples, mapped in the most generic way. Anyone with half-decent ears knows VPS belongs in the same category as StudioLinked, Superstar O, and nothing more than that. Because Avenger has a GUI, it doesn't change the fact they're considering an iLok dongle to protect the shit they're actually selling people.. sample packs!

    And imagine how sad your customers will be when they discover that Avenger now uses 20% more CPU [or more] just because of your stupid protection. :wink:

    It's interesting to note that Native Instruments are never complaining... all of their software has been cracked forever, and they don't use any garbage software protection that kills your CPU and your OS, and they're still one of the biggest audio software companies with the biggest profits. Take that Vengeance. :mad:

    btw. you could work on optimising your software a bit. With that RAM abuse and CPU abuse, it will not take you very far. Just for the time-being, while it is a new shit, people will cope somehow, but not for too long. Many will not remember you when the fad time cools off. Yet, they will remember Native Instruments. :wink:

    I find the way Avenger approaches granular synthesis quite interesting (even though the GUI is awfully busy and not very intuitive). Sad to see the company choose to go the dongle route...

    Like i said and a lot of another people! Yes, we know that this thread is not related to developer, but developer itself reads all comments and sister site is at the moment a major place to be.

    Like we agreed, Native Instruments, Steinberg, Reveal Sound,even Spectrasonics have not changed their acrivation method for years now for Trilian, HALLO etc. Big companies are not complain but Manuel does?

    Man you should be happy, i believe that 80%people from here will buy your software at the end, so calculate that as a regular sale. Dongle will make mess in many ways,need more PC resources, and that is not what you want for your customers ! For example i have Nexus K'D for many years from releasing and i am not using it at all... To buy is so much expensive for what it is offering....Avenger is for me good investment, but you are fk everything with your statement!

    I promise i will buy plugin by end of year, but if you make it with dongle, forget about it, because we have today more than enough expansions released, so my support to you will be obsolete...

    Other thing, ok, you want somehow to make a Vengeance toward us, warez users, but you are punishing and your customers and future ones, which is bitching without any need!


    I say i have downloaded right now complete Orchestral Tools collection which is available nowadays, but you dont hear a Hendrik whining about, but imagine his more that expensive investment in concert hall, all musicians, then editors, programer, Native instruments fees for registering library etc etc.... Stop bitching bro! I know you are reading comments, you are nothing making better for you, my advice let it go... You have enough time about 3yr. For sales and make enough money from it, why this comment...

    We all respect your work, but this is too much... Who cares about dongle? It will be cracked very soon, enough have done VR with their antitrial and that is just begining... I believe if R2R and VR join their forces, dongle will be overided....

    And that will happen, believe in that dont be greedy for money, you have enough i believe!

    Good night!

    Avenger is one of the best synths out there. Some XPs are indeed overpriced because they aren't that good, but the Cinematic XP for example is absolutely amazing, and I can't imagine how many hours Manuel spent making it. We gotta give him some credit. If I had the money, I'd definitely buy the synth.

    The last Massive X is not a good example when talking about CPU efficiency.

    ive been working on avenger for a week now testing everything
    and after reading this ,i find it interesting and funny

    they still can make money whatsoever ,and as fellow members saying they are just
    ''testing the water''and checking their own plugins at other sites
    its nice to know they are working on a better avenger with less bugs and better sounds
    my only concern is :if they change it to dongle type will they drop their prices or increase it ?

    here a thing ,i make music for fun ,if the money comes then it will help me getting plugins i dont have
    like avenger 2 in future ,and maybe falcon or more nexus expansions to create the next hit :wink:

    joking a side , i was planning to get a legit one by november during the black Friday season if prices drops
    but it looks like i will wait for avenger 2 in next year

    its a good synth but i have to agree with fellow members who say expansions been small in size and sounds very similar in these expansions
    and i bet its because sound designers/producers with trap/hip hop background influenced the work on other genres
    and its the sound of today's music in their mind

    nexus vs avenger ?
    nexus expansions can beat avenger expansions in total K.O inside VST Ring and will retain the VST title for a long time
    and i dont work for them either or they didnt pay me to say that :no:
