i agree that this is NOT evil and some of the comparisons are funny! keep em' coming!




So by that rationale if you upgraded from say Cubase Artist 6 to Cubase 6, and had to buy all your plug-ins again, you'd find that hilarious?




Let's wait until Cubase appears on iPad and see what happens then shall we?

But the bigger picture is quite straightforward. The Apps market is very different from the PC/Mac software market and it plays by different rules. It's is tied to the mobile phone industry, and the business model there is that apps are cheap, but as disposable as the phones. The low cost comes at a price, and that is the business model you buy into.

However, I still think that the OP has a valid point. It would be reasonable to ask that, when purchasing add-ons, it was made clear that they will not work with the upgrade versions and would need to be purchased again. Then people could make an informed decision to upgrade before purchasing add-ons.
