I've been in the market for a decent synth and controller this past week after my old Oxygen8 v2 finally died. I got interested in the Arturia stuff for use in Logic Pro 9 (64bit - hope that works per the recent update else I need to look elsewhere..)
BUT the more research I do, the more I'm running into people who just bought this kit and got a ton of freebies - freebies I presumably will not enjoy if I pick it up now! How often does Arturia do bundles like this? I can wait a couple of months, but in the meantime, I may need to pick something else up..
I've been following Arturia's products for some years, before deciding to finally buy the V-Collection. During this time, I've seen some interesting and amazing upgrade/crossgrade and promo-deals like this last one.
Like you, at the time when I started investigating some of the synths in the V-Collection, I had just missed a very good deal by a couple of weeks. I was initially just interested in 2 synths... then after trying the demos I got interested in a 3rd and... well, by the time I started doing the math, it was worth going for the V-Collection.
When I got a final decision, it was December, and a Xmas special deal was on for the V-Collection... so if I'm not mistaken, these "special deals" happen regularly, maybe twice a year, sometimes more, depending if there's anything new and huge announced.
If you're in a hurry, well, "time is money" so you're risking missing again a future deal by buying sooner
...it's kinda of a gamble and one has to be either lucky or patient to wait for "the next big deal"
