Re: paypal

Actually, PayPal will refund a buyer's money even if you *can* produce a tracking number. You need to be able to produce proof of delivery. That can be almost impossible with international transactions and costs extra for domestic mail. Even then the post office sometimes doesn't provide proof of de...

Re: XITE-1 No.3 at Thomann Sales Ranking

why should it be affordable for everyone? it's still the cheapest solution out there, for what you get, by a factor of almost 10. anyone who is even the slightest bit serious about music production can afford one or can save for one. My annual budget for gear is $1200. With a young family, money is...

Re: XITE-1 No.3 at Thomann Sales Ranking

i am a nice guy, really! well, usually... after everything that Scope has been through, there's just no need for negativity that's strictly for negativity's sake. there's no need to dampen anyone's enthusiasm. Point well taken. I'm really impressed with what S|C has achieved. The awkward thing abou...

Re: XITE-1 No.3 at Thomann Sales Ranking

Yeah, I know. The margins on the XITE-1 are considerable for both S|C and the dealers, so they don't have to sell thousands and thousands of them to stay afloat. I just thought it was funny that people are waving around virtually meaningless statistics while hoping that S|C is doing well. I think sa...

Umm. Scoring #3 in the DSP audio systems category is like having the third best selling New Age Bagpipe album on iTunes. ;)

In the old days, you buy software, you do what you want with it. Now they have you by the balls. I worked for a software company in "the good old days" that was put out of business by people stealing their unprotected programs. Sadly, some means of controlling licenses is required to keep people fr...

I am offering them my money. Let's assume that Sonic Core manages to sell 500 Vista upgrades at €198. That would earn the company €99,000 minus taxes, office expenses, hardware, and salaries - it might be enough money to pay the salary of a single developer plus the company overhead. It definitely ...

I'd like to offer another perspective: The Scope platform is a bargain. I wanted a Creamware rig for years, but could never justify the quite substantial outlay for two or three cards and a powerful computer. I was finally able to buy a Scope system because used card prices have dropped so dramatica...

I don't understand you guys. Creamware has been rescued from the brink of annihilation, and they're offering free Vista-compatible software updates to anyone who owns 4.5 - a great deal. Those who don't own 4.5 have an opportunity to upgrade at a quite reasonable price and receive instruments and ef...

This forum is called "Scope Purchasing." The intent is to match buyers and sellers of Creamware gear. Miscellaneous studio widgets belong elsewhere, don't they?

John managed to squeeze in an interview about the Solaris a few days before Messe. It was a lot of fun to talk with him about his new baby - he's a wonderful person to interview because of his sincerity and enthusiasm.

Thanks, astroman!

I just ordered some - They will come in handy for live performance and I can always use another MIDI controller or two around here.
