discchord 6th Anniversary
Monday, August 21, 2017 by person daveknapik
Thanks for all the fish! And the preset sharing! Happy birthday!
I know it's unpopular to like the Roland Boutique line because it is not analog, but man, for $350, it looks and sounds mostly like an 808... it's still pretty damn dope, imho. That SH-01A is even cooler though! Whether we like it or not, we will probably never get an exact analog Roland-made 808 clone, and if we did, it would be ungodly expensive.

Now, Roland, can we please have all these as iOS apps? Plug Out for iOS please!!

There is no more appreciated question, than how to give us your money ;)

Haha! You deserve it, you guys are the best. :) I just bought them, thanks. $1/synth: can't go wrong.

Well done, as always, Oliver. I'm continually impressed by how fair you guys are with your IAPs, too: $4 for 4 synths? That's a steal. Cheers!

One thing: I think I am being incredibly thick here, but I can't figure out how to give you my money. Haha. The synths are greyed out, but I can play with them, and I can't figure out how to purchase them.
Igor is a legend. I use FieldScaper so much. This one will be an immediate purchase for me. Thanks, Igor!!
Chords of Orion has a really chill voice. I would like him to read me bed time stories. Also, the plugin looks dope and I think I'm gonna get it!
I lost confidence in their opinions at the first sentence of their revenue model: "We believe that iOS hardware is good enough to do great things with audio, yet there is very little good software to run on it.

Anyone who believes that there is very little good audio software to run on iOS either doesn't know much about what makes good audio software, hasn't tried many iOS apps or is outright lying.

Applying the subscription model to an app purchase is completely disrespectful to consumers. "No one expects to buy a pair of shoes once and have them replaced every year for free." Sure, so when Audiobus 2 turned into Audiobus 3, plenty of us bought it and were more than happy to! (I got mine free thanks to this blog's contest. :D )

We don't expect updates for life, but we do expect a bit of respect. Implying that we are freeloaders and that our platform lacked good software until you showed up isn't exactly endearing you to the iOS music community. Threatening to drop support if you don't make enough money on your timeline is not exactly inspiring confidence either. I understand that you have to make a living, but this whole thing just rubs me the wrong way.

I'm boycotting this app and I hope others consider doing the same.

Sweet! I've been holding out on AB3 but I'd love to try it out. Thanks!
Thanks for working so hard to get us freebies! :D
Thanks for running this site! Without discchord, I really doubt I would have come to learn a fraction of what I have learned about iOS synths. Cheers!
