Oh dear - the plot thickens. So can somebody clear this up with definitive answers to:diverdee wrote: The ostensibly 'free' EIC is made by Sonivox (sonic implants) according to info. on this site, they aren't different things - it's just product (EIC) & product manufacture (sonivox).
If the box now costs $70 more & one pays 'extra for the box, because it contains the EIC collection' - how can the EIC then be claimed to be free?
It is obviously another $70 charge on top of the cost of sampler ($200) if one wants some content fro the sampler.
Furthermore, judging from the very limited articulations for the strings it appears to be just a 'taster' set of sonivox's samples.
1) Is the EIC the same as the Sonivox multisampled instruments?
2) Are they genuinely *free* as advertised by Ableton, or are they the sole addition to the box that has resulted in a $70 increase / charge?
3) Is the EIC worth having or just a frustratingly incomplete "taster" designed to entice yet further purchases?
