SoundMiner Group Buy


After all my posts about metadata and sound library apps a couple of people suggested the idea of approaching the developers of SoundMiner to see if a group buy discount might be possible, so I contacted Steve at SoundMiner and asked. I already own SoundMiner Pro and use it constantly at my work studio, but I really need SoundMiner at home, so I have a vested interest too!
His reply: “10% discount for 10 people, 20% discount for 50 people”
So what do you think? Can we do a simple show of hands and see if this is worth pursuing?

Soundminer V4pro US$899: 10% discount US$809, 20% discount US$719
Soundminer V4 Standard US$599: 10% discount US$539, 20% discount US$479

Also note, this potential discount applies to the imminent new SoundMiner HD

Soundminer HD US$199: 10% discount US$179, 20% discount US$159
Soundminer HD Plus US$399: 10% discount US$359, 20% discount US$319

Please read this to see the feature set for SoundMiner HD

We’d really need to hit the 50 person mark to make it significant, so please add a comment if you would be in – no total commitment at this stage, just to see if its possible. SoundMiner HD is 4-6 weeks away so lets see what support there is for this idea over the next month….

And spectral search looks interesting

NOTE: this group buy is for new licenses, not upgrades!

GROUP BUY is now CLOSED, thanks everyone!

    Early xmas present to myself?! I’m in…

  12. I might be in for V4pro

  13. Rodney Gates says:

    I’d definitely be interested in Soundminer HD Plus for home, plus an additional V4 Pro license or two for work.

  14. HD definitely, possibly V4 standard.

  15. Meant HD +…. foopid stingers hit send too quickly

  16. Tyler says:

    If I decide against going with Basehead for home, I’m in for HD.

  17. David V says:

    I’m definitly in for a V4, but need to buy it within a month … maybe it’ll be before the HD release (in which case i’ll be out).

    • tim says:

      Hey David
      Request a 30 day demo of the version you want to buy, the SoundMiner folk are very helpful in that respect!

      • David V says:

        I did, in fact i need it from this monday and will run the demo this month. So i’ll need to buy before the end of the demo (which i guess i could extend a bit if asked nicely).

        You’re right, Steve is really reactive ! I was impressed. In fact we talked yesterday and i asked him about the HD released date but the programming guys weren’t sure yet.

  18. Count me in for HD

  19. JP says:

    Count me in for HD plus

    Cheers, Lou (syncsounds).

  22. Sygor says:

    I’m definitely interested in the HD. Of course I don’t have any money at the moment but maybe by the time HD actually gets released I can be ‘in’.

  23. Yepp! I’m in to for Soundminer HD!

  30. This is a great idea, but I already own Soundminer V4pro.

  31. I’m in for HD or HD Plus . . . haven’t decided which.

  32. david kamp says:

    i am in for soundminer hd plus.

  33. Steve Urban says:

    Can’t commit just yet, but I’m interested.

  34. Matt S says:

    I’d be in for an HD (or Plus) upgrade. I’m Soundminer V4 PRO at the mo, so I guess I’d be Plus?

  35. Daan Hendriks` says:

    Potentially in for HD or HD+.

  36. Matt S says:

    Ha – and NOW that I’ve read what SM HD (and plus) is about…. I’m not interested. Talk about marketing gone awry…. I assumed HD would be an improvement over Soundminer V4 Pro…. But it appears we’ve been better than HD for some time now – is that 3D 1080p or something? uncompressed 96K.

    We need upgraded acronyms.

    • tim says:

      if you are comparing to the visual HD equivalent, HD is not the top level of anything visually it would be:

      SD/DV -> HD -> 2k -> 4k -> 35mm -> 70mm

      or something…

  37. ksrmedia says:

    HD Plus. I’m in.

  38. Thomas says:

    HD Plus here. Anyone know if it will run on 10.4 though? (the press release says 10.5+)

  39. Enos Desjardins says:

    I can’t commit right yet as I’m setting up my edit suite at the moment. But if I manage to finance some of my purchases I would have the money to pay for SM HD+ and would definitely be interested.I’ll post when I know!

    Put me down as a maybe for:
    1 V4 license
    1 Mini-Miner to V4 Pro upgrade. I am hoping since this upgrade costs $700 that it will qualify for the discount.
