Jim Feeley Posted February 21, 2021 Report Share Posted February 21, 2021 I'd guess SD makes a profit on their plugins. And that's good because it means they'll be able to keep making and selling plugins. But I'd guess Cedar, Dugan, and perhaps other companies are getting a decent licensing fee for each copy of the relevant plug-ins sold. And considering the cost to develop the plugins even with some licensed code, and especially the comparatively small market for their plugins, I'd guess their cost-per-customer is fairly high. I'd further guess this is all obvious. And I'd rather the tools I need cost less. But that's the way it is. And during these pandemic days, I'm cool with SD focusing efforts on producing face shields, which appears to be an ongoing effort. https://www.sounddevices.com/ppe/ A PR article from last year: https://www.sounddevices.com/sound-devices-face-shield-production-tops-30000-per-day/ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
