After the news that Gobbler Media Inc have ceased trading and immediately terminated their subscription marketplace — affecting users with active Slate Digital and SSL subscriptions purchased via the service — the two companies have announced the launch of a migration programme that will allow Gobbler users to transfer their existing accounts to a new shared platform which will guarantee continued access to their favourite subscription and ongoing new plug-ins. They are also providing a free subscription offer for existing customers.
James Gordon, CEO of Audiotonix has issued the following statement:
“Unfortunately, we have been aware of Gobbler’s situation this past week and our first reaction has been to take care of our existing Gobbler subscriber customers and make sure their workflows are protected with ongoing access to our plug-ins.
As a thank you to our loyal subscribers, at the time of transfer they will be given the opportunity to take on both subscriptions for the price of one. This, we hope, makes up for the inconvenience of doing the move, and this promotion will continue as long as you continue to renew your subscription.
Existing Slate Digital customers on our own platform, or who have historically already moved from Gobbler to our platform, please don’t worry as you will also be given the option to upgrade for free and get access to the SSL Complete subscription at no extra cost. Due to the urgency of moving our Gobbler clients across we are working with them initially, but your turn will come as we will start to offer this promotion to all through November.
Unfortunately, if you are currently not a subscriber, this offer will not apply at this time..
This is clearly not an ideal situation for our Gobbler customers but we hope the speed with which we have been able to react, and the additional benefits this combined subscription will offer, will more than outweigh the short term aggravation and confusion, And, dare I say, we have some impressive additions coming from Slate Digital, SSL and Harrison in the coming months and, as a “Complete Access” customer, you will benefit from them all.”
