Thanks for that matrix sheet StefK.

I am an absolute3 owner and the 99 to upgrade doesn’t seem too bad since you get groove agent 5, rock essentials, and beat butcha are up my alley. I’m an Mpc and battery guy and having a full screen groove agent 5 is good for my bad eyes. If you spend all day chopping records and playing drums in groove agent then this is a good deal. For everyone else it might not be the case.

I also use groove agent 5 in ableton and it’s great to write random loops in there too.

It is a decent deal if you want and or need the new items. If you don't really want or need them or if you just want stuff without paying for it, like so many these days, then it isn't a good deal.
Remember, consumers are greedy too. They want stuff for free or often want to pay less than a fair price. Wanting to keep more of your money and get a good or great deal (rather than a fair deal) is just as greedy as the vendor wanting to get paid more for the same item.

Stop calling them greedy or abusive. It is just wrong. It is the price they have set for now. It you think it is too high, then wait for a sale. If too many think it is too high and don't buy, then they will eventually lower the price. That is the way it works.

I think this is a fair comment and is right.

Still disappointed with essentially just an upgrade to GA5 though.

For what it is worth... I actually also agree that the upgrade is too little for too much (for my needs). I don't really use Groove Agent very much. I was hoping for some of the GA Style expansions to be included (more than just Rock Essentials). I did go ahead and buy the Modern Jazz Essentials after the Absolute 4 was announced and might still by the Jazz and Fusion Styles. But, at any rate, I don't think I will upgrade to Absolute 4 now. Maybe if it goes on sale or something. But, I do understand the disappointment here.

Absolute 4 is out now but I cannot see any difference from absolute 3 other than the updated Groove Agent 5?

Cost to upgrade from A3 to A4 - which basically means just an update of groove agent is £85
Includes 'The Grand 3' update plus three instrument packs" 'Prime Cuts' (AUD$59), 'Granular Guitars' (AUD $59) and 'Rock Essentials' (AUD$37) and GA5 update from GA4 (AUD$149). AB4 cost me AUD$149. But, yes, still a little lame overall. Can only assume we' should see a few new free updates to other instruments incl. HALion in the coming months if there is an AB4 licence installed. Also in this update it would seem that the Library Manager is updated and seems to be a little smarter as to where samlple libaries are installed, or need to be moved, or duplicates to be cleaned up.

Hello
Why Absolute Collection does not have summer discount?
Best regards, Victor.

Thanks for that.
I just got in on Absolute with vers.3, so wasn't up on the progression, but have been using Cubase for a long time.
I like to support Steinberg because of Cubase, and because Halion has become my favorite soft synth/sampler.
The stuff included in Abs4 is not stuff I would likely use, so I'm going to pass on this one, and see what
direction it takes next.

my price was $50 for the upgrade after applying the code so $99 should be the original upgrade price

if you installed everything absolute 3 you wont need to install things like halion content and the grand content because they didn't change you can see the file sizes are exact the same in both absolute 3 and 4 collection you would only need to install the new things included
