Confused on Cross DJ Pro 4 Upgrade Pricing

Postby iwaiwa on 11 May 2020, 05:05

Hi MV:

I own Cross DJ 4.0 (non-Pro) version

I am interested in the VST feature that comes with DJ Pro 4.2

so, if you can help me understand:

I have owned Cross DJ 3 (non-Pro) for years and upgraded to Cross DJ 4 (non-Pro) last year

Current special Spring pricing:

From Cross DJ to Cross DJ 4 Pro
$54.90

From Cross to Cross DJ 4 Pro
$44.90

First:

Why is it cheaper to go from Cross (any version) to DJ 4 Pro than it costs to go from Cross DJ 4 (non-Pro) to Cross DJ 4 Pro ?

aren't current Cross DJ 4 (non-Pro) users who have supported Mixvibes getting a bit screwed (upgrade price-wise) here when they go to Cross DJ 4 Pro ?.

With the current sale of:
Cross DJ4 Pro
$74.90

... it's only like $20 to get a brand new version of Cross DJ 4 Pro versus what it costs current Cross DJ 4 users (to upgrade to Cross DJ Pro 4) who supported MixVibes all along (sometimes for many years).

Something seems 'out of wack' or overlooked here.

I know that some would say 'we are all getting a bargain' because the real cost of development is actually much higher than the couple of dollars we actually pay for the software.

I do appreciated the developers and all involved at MixVibes.

I'm really looking forward to the VST version so I can play from my DAWs (BitWig, StudioOne, etc) and my 3rd party VST effects in my DAWs.

-- But seems a bit steep for existing (long term) DJ 4 (nonPro) users to pay "upgrade cost" which is only 20 bucks less than a brand new DJ 4 Pro license purchase.

Thanks for your time on this.

Version 4.2 has the VST. So upgrading by the downloading this version is all you need to do.

Cross (old) = same as Cross DJ Pro. So logically cheaper upgrade then from the less featured version Cross DJ (old).

And further this type of discounts are nothing new. Think it is going on for over 5 years.

Hi RoJeC

ok, I shelled out my cash ...

(which I am happy to do to support MixVibes)

but, even though it cost me (nearly) 2x as much as a "Cross DJ 4 non-Pro" user than it costs a brand new customer to go from Cross DJ 4 to Cross DJ 4 Pro

for me (already own Cross DJ 4) 54.90 cost to go to Pro

for a new customer to go make the choice to go from Cross DJ 4 to Cross DJ 4 Pro that jump in price is only: $30.00

(Cross DJ 4 Pro sale price is 74.90, Cross DJ 4 non-Pro is: 49.90)

which is only $30 more


-- but anyway, I'm not going to bicker anymore on price

I am happy to get the VST version, except:

the Windows Installer for DJ Pro 4 doesn't prompt for VST version

(I added that to an existing thread)

viewtopic.php?f=259&t=41019

Also, FYI:

When ordering online (MyCommerce, Digital River)

it only links to:

filename=Install_Cross_DJ_Pro_4.0.0.exe

not the latest version


and, the Comparison features (differences) on:

https://www.mixvibes.com/cross-dj-4/

Get the Right Version for You

Doesn't even list "VST" as a line item, so prospective buyers don't know for sure which version of Cross 4 supports / includes VST

anyway, thanks for your time helping me, if possible

I purchased the (Pro) VST version.

I don't get that prompt on Windows 10 (and I am an administrator).

Demo version of Pro didn't prompt for VST also (when I tried that a few days ago). (Maybe the Demo Installer of Pro isn't supposed to have doesn't have the VST option ?)

but, anyway: no VST prompt on the purchased version of Pro installer.

I checked all my VST folders.

But there is no prompt. Nada.
