Abbey Road Keyboards Discontinued?

The title says it all, just double checking if ARK has been discontinued as I can't find it in the PH shop. Anyone any idea why it was discontinued? Is there anywhere I can get a copy?

Thanks in advance.

Check ebay or some music stores may still have a copy in stock somewhere.
It was discontinued because the contract ran out and Abbey roads decided not to renew it, to my knowledge anyway.
If you're on 6.5 why not check out Radical piano? If not then good luck finding the refill

Thanks, I'll keep my eyes open online. Radical Piano's a little out of my price range at the moment, but I intend to get that somewhere down the line. Thanks for the help and info.

50$ is a bargain considering the original retail was well over 200$ USD afaik. If you find it cheaper than that, it's either a scam or a pirated copy! Just my 2c anyway.

Yeah, I had a quick look, $50 is a good deal, just I'd rather deal with someone in the UK rather than overseas. I've had a few issues in the past with paying through the nose on import taxes/shipping etc. I should've really stipulated that I was more inquiring about the current situation as to why it was no longer available through the PH site, rather than looking for immediate sales from other users. Thanks for your input though.

I'm assuming the only legitimate way of getting a copy is by purchasing the physical disc then, as opposed to a software download (by which I mean an all above board download...). When I get to a better financial position I'll head back over and see if anyone's selling (if I don't blow it all on RE's by then that is...).

It was never available as a download so if you see it around it isn't legit!

I have a copy I'dbe willing to sell. Will transfer the license and mail the discs for $50.
