So Arturia sends me a nice email encouraging me to upgrade to V-Collection 3 at the very attractive price of $199. I already own Mg Modular, ARP2600 and CS-80, purchased separately. I went to the website, got a promotional code, entered the code, but was still going to be charged the full price of $399 instead of $199. The code message said that I had applied the promo code, but it was worth $0.00.
I tried this several times to no avail. Maybe it saw the code as already used and wouldn't apply it again? As usual, my email to Arturia so far has gone unanswered. My difficulty in getting responses from Arturia in the past has tempered my desire for their products. That's the main (maybe only) reason I haven't jumped on Spark, and am wary of getting any product that I might need support for - even simple install, eLicenser setup to get started.
Anyway, all will be forgiven and forgotten if I can get this upgrade for the advertised $199. Maybe I'll even go for Spark. I've got Maschine, Stylus, Battery, and a host of others.
