Rack Extensions are OUTRAGEOUSLY overpriced. Poor show Propellerhead

Seriously, whose going to pay and average of 40 to 130 Euros for individual rack devices. I for one sure as hell won't be. I was so excited about this release from Propellerhead, this morning I'm absolutely shocked and let down by the price of them. Back to Pro Tools we go

I think you're living in Apple iPad $5 app land, they aren't overpriced at all, they are competitively priced to match similar utility VSTs in the marketplace.

yeah indeed, Apple has started those ruinous $.99 war and everybody now got accustomed while most of the developers are suffering from this competition (except for one or two examples like Angry birds).

They are actually a hell of a lot cheaper (well the softube ones are at least). Trident VST was $279 last time I looked.

But when I try and buy- server down message comes up

Does this still happen? Could you try again? Any screenshots?

Well, its not quite the same. Your vst's can be brought to other systems and most of them can be sold. If you sell Reason then you can't sell it with the extensions so all your RE's are then rendered worthless.
I personally haven't come to any conclusion about the prices yet. I'm just throwing in some arguments here

Hi Mattias- I have tried Trident and a bit later IU think Radical piano.

There should be a put in basket button for multiple purchases. Still not able to buy BTW.

Don't need to try them first do I? Using google chrome, win7 64bit.
