How does the price of rack extensions stack up? Comparable to standard plugins or is it a free extension to the stuff you already own?
I'm a bit late to this thread and haven't been following the recent developments...
Some of them start at $29, and others go up to $119. I'd say they're fairly priced compared to VSTs. The Korg Polysix is $49, which is well worth it to me.
I've seen VSTs like Waves cost hundreds of dollars. Of course there's some people on Props User Forum complaining about the prices because they either have the VST already and feel like they should get a freebie or a cross-grade discount. But some people feel like they should be getting something for nothing. There's already 2 free Rack Extensions, which will remain free for a limited time, plus the upgrade from R6 to 6.5 is free. I definitely can't complain, especially when there's a 30 day trial on all of them. If I don't agree with the price of anything (which I don't), or if I try it out and I don't feel the need for it, I know there's more Rack Extensions on the way. So all in all, I'm very pleased at what I've seen, and have had a lot of fun trying all of them.
