Default izotope software

I've noticed that DV don't seem to sell any of their stuff.

As far as i know, their stuff is pretty popular.

You could sell it as download only. I know another place that does that. You don't need a ilok thing either.

All you have to do as a buyer is download the software trial from their website and if you like it, find a retailer who sells the product. When you buy it, the retailer sends you a license key through e mail within 24 hours and that's all there is to it!

Just thought perhaps you might want to consider it.

I know, but you can buy it cheaper from retailers here. Quite a bit cheaper too. For example. To purchase Ozone from their site it's close to £200. I got mine for £123 from a music retailer. The same applies to their other software, it can be bought cheaper from a retailer than on their own website. I don't know why that is though.

I wasn't really suggesting it because it was hard to come by, just thought DV might want to make it available like they do with loads of other software.

Izotope are not alone in this quirky pricing structure.

The other example I can give you is Ableton Live. it's cheaper to buy the boxed version with the EIC content disc from DV, then it is to buy as a download without from their own website. The boxed version on their own site...is even more expensive. You are looking at £130 or so more not including postage.

The reasons for all this are because the publishers/companies don't want to undercut their dealer network, or there's no incentive for dealers to actually carry the product in the first place. So they sell direct at RRP (MSRP for you north American types). Distributors/dealers buy at a discount, and then they can find a margin somewhere in the middle that allows them to encourage you to buy from them and makes them a bit of money at the same time...

Even if my statement leads you to believe that the problem is with the user rather than the tool, I still believe it has an overall sound that isn't particularly nice. I get much, much nicer results with a good EQ, compressor and limiter.



Imo of course.
