Navigating the RE shop - needs improving
Does anyone else find it difficult to FIND or SHOP the RE's on

Almost EVERY time I log on I find myself going up & down trying to just SEE all of them, but instead I'm forced to have them broken into a "spotlight" section, then "highest rated" or "new releases" -- which, I'll add, only lists 5, and they aren't the newest ones. For instance I saw "Dragon Gate" was new today because of a Forum post, but when I go to the RE shop, I don't even see it. Unless, of course, I type it in a SEARCH but shouldn't it be in the "NEWEST" list?

This is how the RE page SHOULD be, in my opinion:

Sure, have a spotlight banner up top for promotion, but then let the rest of the page be EVERY RE with a SORTING tab to chose from options such as Release date / Rating / Category or Type.

"Similar products" is subjective... it's helpful, but then again it's somewhat random. I understand you can type in a specific SEARCH but when browsing, lets say I just want to see what's new, or I want to see only synths, etc.

And when I finally look at an item, how do I get BACK to the RE area? I have to click on a SIMILAR PRODUCT, or a randomly chosen MORE FROM PROPELLERHEAD unit. Otherwise it's back to the PROPELLERHEAD SHOP tab.. too many steps.

Please, someone pass along my frustration... there needs to be a better way to casually shop REs.

By using the "Browse" button you can sort by name, developer or date.

I fail to see the confusion?

Have you tried "browse"?

There you can sort them on date, name, manufacturer. Grid or list...

You can also sort by type "creative fx", "instruments", "studio fx" & "utilities" when browsing.

Damn, and what happens now?

But that does not count since you didn't tell upfront that it was a competition.

There should be a sort list by colour too!

No prizes, purely for sport and it's the only victory I've had this year (however shallow)!

Good point - But I want to sort by the number of knobs :D

Yes, that would be useful.

However, while I'm not a size queen, I'd rather have a few BIG knobs to play with than a load of small ones.
