Is this an issue for everyone, or do I have some weird cache thing going on that I need to clear?

24 free products = 25 for the price of 1.


Hi Peter,

Here's what's weird on the Promo page:

Buy 1 Get 22 Free* when 22,000 registrations are reached

Buy 1 Get 23 Free* when 23,000 registrations are reached

Buy 1 Get 24 Free* when 25,000 registrations are reached

And so on, up to our goal of 25,000 participants, and 25 titles for the price of 1!


See what I was asking?

Hi Tobias.

The jump is 2,000 for the last tier. It was a 1 extra free per 1k up to 23k. Then 24 free at 25k.

And, as Peter says, 24 free+1 purchase= 25 products for the price of 1.

Look closely what the page says:
Buy 1 Get 22 Free* when 22,000 registrations are reached
Buy 1 Get 23 Free* when 23,000 registrations are reached
Buy 1 Get 24 Free* when 25,000 registrations are reached

The final tier with 24 free products took 2000 new registrations whereas all other tiers took 1000 new registrations.

Hi guys, thanks for the clarification. That makes sense, what threw me off was the " .. and so on, up to our goal" that follows Buy 1 Get 24 Free* when 25,000 registrations are reached-- the way I read that, it implied that there was something more to come after that tier was reached (otherwise, why add "and so on ... " after the final tier??? -- just the proof reader in me I guess :ugeek: ).

And absolutely no problem with any of it, I certainly don't want to come across as bitching about the number of free products IK chose to offer, I think this has been a tremendous and extremely generous promotion and I'm very glad to have been able to participate. I bought in at 3K and thought I'd be really happy if I was able to select a total of 8 products, so this has far exceeded my expectations.

No - I hear you. I had exactly the same thought a while back before I noticed the 2k jump at the end.

And it is quite a deal isn't it? I was in the lucky position where I was given a €500 gift card which coincided exactly with this offer. I've now got an I-rig acoustic stage, modo drums & bass & Hammond organ. Sampletank pretty much full, T-Racks full and Amplitube pretty much full. That's an outrageous deal :shock: :). And with €50 left over, I think I'll need to take care of the few cabinets I don't have in Amplitube.

It's been the best sugar overload ever. Now back to making music :).

Each participant will be officially paired with a randomly assigned Ceremonial Sister or Brother from Douglas on the Isle of Man, the population of which is also 26,000.

It will be like sister cities but with musicians and Manxpersons.

The group buy page states:
Please note that you can claim your free products from your IK User Area for a period of 30 days after the closing date of the promotion.
and
Promotion is valid from August 5, 2021 through October 31, 2021.

This infers that the last download date is 2021-11-30

In my promotions area, next to each 'Available' button there is a date of 2021-10-31, is this the latest date that on which downloads are valid or is 2021-11-30 the last date?

The end date on the Promotions tab is the end of the promotion, not the end date for claiming. You have 30 days after the promotion ends on October 31st to claim your products.

I think those are the ones shown in boldface in my unofficial spreadsheet, all AmpliTube stuff. There are the four X-Gear pedals (software versions, natch) and a set of items that non-Max users might not have.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... d=72684527

[eta] I'm not sure the upgrade/crossgrade items in bold were added at the same time, might have been due to being logged in or out when I took notes.

Same as it was when they added the x-gear a couple of weeks back so nothing new.

Not sure what they could add anyway other than a philharmonik CE to full bonus.

That would be the equivalent of three christmas days coming at once.

It would have been quite the project for it's time. I wish I'd picked it up when it was on a promo earlier this year ( I'm sure it was, wasn't it?). I guess between CE, the ST4 additions and orchestral and cinematic packs I probably do have enough.

This group buy lists only the single software titles. I can inquire whether this bundle provides a separate full serial though as I'm not 100% sure.


Peter, I have the same question. If you find an answer, please let us know. Thanks!

Hi,
I just checked this with IK, and no this bundle does not qualify.... dammit :)

Do I get the serial number for the ARC System 3 software immediately If I buy the ARC System 3 with MEMS microphone for 149,99 € or do I have to wait until the microphone arrives ?
I want to join the group buy to get the Amplitube X Gear pedals for free and this is the only product that I find useful for me that qualifies to get the X Gear pedals because I already own all of the Amplitube 5 stuff.
Gear: Amplitube 5
Guitars: Heritage H-150, Gibson LP, Melancon Strat, Haar Strat
