I just kind of came across this and the product looks really incredible. I do have a few questions / clarifications however. OK - this is what I understand. There are two ways basically to purchase Syrinscape. The first is you can just download the free player and then purchase the sound packs. You’ll only have access to those packs but can use them as your heart’s content. Also, no internet connection is required to access this.
The second way is the subscription model. There are 3 different modules - fantasy; scifi and board games. You can license either of these singularly or if you go with the top tier (super subscriber) for $10/month, you’ll have access to them all. When you subscribe, you have access to any previously published packs along with any new the come out in that group that you are enrolled. Any new packs that come out while you are subscribed, you own in that particular group (fantasy/scifi/board games). If you are a super subscriber you will have access to all the groups and own any packs that come out in all the categories (fantasy/scifi/boardgames). Is my understanding correct on this?
If so, are there any options for longer subscriptions perhaps at a discount (pre-paid of course)? Is there any option for a one time purchase? I really abhor the whole subscription model. Also, if you own a pack but never downloaded it while you were subscribing and then let it lapse, are you able to download it in the future even without a subscription? Also, is there any discount packages if you buy multiple sound packs at one time or say all those in one category?
Finally, if I have a lot of other music from other sources for my game. I read that if you have the ‘super subscriber’ model you can use these MP3s to create your own sounds etc. What if I just want to use them ‘as is’ and combine other sounds with it - I’m assuming that’s doable? If the subscription lapses, would I still have those items that I created/worked on or like your owned packs or are these lost?
My apologies for all the questions and the wall of text. I’m trying to decide on the feasibility of using this with my FG game (which I know can be integrated together). Thanks for any assistance you can give!!
