Yet again Exponential Audio are at the cutting edge of plug-in development. Now you can choose whether to buy outright or rent Exponential Audio plug-ins. So if you need a couple of extra licenses to finish a big project for a short period, then you can choose to rent them for only as long as you need them, whilst still being able to buy the licenses you need outright with no hidden extra charges.
Exponential Audio And Gobbler Team Up
Exponential Audio has partnered with Gobbler to make this possible. Exponential makes the plug-ins and Gobbler will manage the rental subscriptions. Exponential Audio told us that they are proud to be among the very first plug-in developers to work with Gobbler in their new store....
They've already proven themselves to be a top choice in cloud collaboration. With their new store, they've created new possibilities that make it easier for you to upgrade your studio. We'll be joining some of your favourite plug-in makers to offer this service over the coming weeks and months.
You Choose Whether You Rent Or Buy
The team Exponential Audio stressed that rental subscriptions will not replace permanent licenses. An Exponential team member told us....
Permanent licenses work really well for most people and they'll always be fully supported - just as they are now. But for some people, subscriptions are the choice that works. Whether it's a tight budget or whether you'd prefer to bill your plug-ins to a project, subscription/rental might be the answer.
There are some software vendors who appear to be pressuring users into forfeiting permanent licenses in favour of annual support payments. That's not the way things work at Exponential Audio. Cows may get milked, but customers don't. You purchased a plug-in and you get support for it. It's that simple.
Exponential Audio is an independent privately-held company. There's no board of directors. There are no bean-counters. Wall Street doesn't get a voice here. We exist because we love being part of the audio industry. The decisions made here are based on the relationships we've built directly with you. Call us old-fashioned. Please.
We think this attitude to customers and our needs is refreshing and healthy by increasing the range of options to use and pay for plug-ins without locking us in. Well done Exponential Audio!
