  • VSL Group buy in the future?

    There's a QLSO Group buy going on at the Northern Sounds forum. QLSO will probably be selling like hotcakes, but I was wondering if VSL might have any plans to do this. I really would love to see a group buy for maybe OPUS 1 or SoloStrings or Chamber strings. [:D]

  • Just think: in time for xmas! [H]

    That's what I'm hoping for. I think a group buy would be VSL's great way of getting into the midrange/lower markets and entice a lot of future customers to upgrading to the big libraries. It seems to be working for QLSO silver and now the Gold group buy anyway, no?

    I would buy VSL stuff via groupbuys in an instant!

  • Yes! Chamber Strings Group Buy! Please!

    Many that I have talked to love this library, but it is *just* out of reach for those same folks (unfortunately including myself...) I would definitely jump on the list if the terms were similar to the EWQLSO group buy...

  • I agree with that... I have seen in other forums other than NS more group buys and they seem to be working very good... If I may give my opinion on this, I really think this is a win-win situation and of course I'd love a Horizon group buy, VSL would probably sell like donuts [:D]

    Just my 2 cents [:)]

  • Yep, Epic Horns or Chamber Strings would be great.

    60% discount if 81+ buyers sign-up is the top discount being offered on Northern Sounds.

  • I doubt it. But who knows [:)]

  • OPUS 1!! OPUS 1!!!!

    I've been debating between QLSO Gold and OPUS 1. I've been leaning more heavily towards OPUS, but this group buy for QLSO Gold is swaying my decision pretty badly. If there was an equal deal for OPUS, I would definitely do that.

    I agree, this QLSO Gold group buy is making it perhaps half the cost of Opus 1. So Opus 1 would be my first choice for a group buy. Maybe Chamber and Solo strings too or perhaps a combination group buy that maybe includes two or three of these VSL products.

    Let us hope, or perhaps more requests will make VSL/Herb consider the group buy! [:D]

  • i'd go for a chamber strings group buy...

  • Another vote for Chamber Strings here.

  • Me too for chamber strings -- very attractive seeming package, but just too expensive when I already have almost enough strings. But at $700Us, $600US, $500 US ... I'd buy.

  • What about the logistics.... sorry for that blunt q., but how does that work?

    I suppose...

    1 person is on charge of collecting orders and money? Otherwise there is no advantage for the distributor etc. right?

    How is delivery and insurance of the same sorted?

    Again, sorry, but I never heard about it before, just enlighten my guiness clouded brain will ya? ( Hi Fitch! [:D] ) [[;)]]

    How does it work, and where are the incentives for the seller to do so?

    Simple math for an hypothetical month:

    20 copies at 700 US = 14,000

    200 copies at 300 US = 60,000

    Capiche? [H]

    Well said. [H]

    I wonder if the VSL folks are listening to our plea. [[;)]]

  • I also think a group buy would be a good idea for Opus 1 at this time. Many people thinking about a good orchestral library will consider QL gold at such a low price. Personally I think I would like to go with VSL to eventually upgrade to the big libraries. I like the realism of VSL compared to QL. If I could get Opus 1 in that sort of group buy situation I would definitely go for it.

  • FYI -- the Gold Group Buy has now reached 36 entries, and a discount of 40%...

  • I bought mine today. Hope I made the bonus.

  • In fact there is a group buy in another forum in which the developper is offering one whole branch of his libraries in the group buy (that is: wether you buy a specific one or another, it will sum the count)... let's imagine if this applies to all the horizon branch of products... the sales would be spectacular, I would probably get more horizon products at once than I would usually do or even getting some that I wasn't intending to buy...

    of course the 80+ count and the 60% discount would be reached very fast, but that's really the point isn't it? Developpers should have calculated even if they are offering 60% discount they will be having benefits (in fact one of the products in those group buys is almost reaching 200 sales!) and VSL could at the same time not only keep their product policy as there is still a Pro Ed that people could get, BUT at the same time it would multiply the chances of an upgrade to the Pro-Ed... something like collateral benefits in a medium-long term...

    not really capiche.... [*-)]

    I mean, compare that with single sales profit.... even if they would loose 25% because of not offering GroupSex, ahem, Groupsales, they still would make higher profits.... wouldn't they?

    Then agan, I may be wrong, at the end of the day it is all about VSL's calculation.... let's see what they have to say.

    How about the logistics? I mean is it true that 1 person only would collect the orders/money and place one single big order? If so, well, how would you make sure that the one getting the order/money would not have a nice weekend in Las Vegas? I am just wondering about the details...
