Splice (Rent to own)

Hi as a music maker i have used a range of Fab Filter products at many different studios over the years

I AM VERY IMPRESSED and would love to purchase the "Fab Filter Total Bundle" but as you are most likely aware these programs can be very expensive up front to low level musicians/engineers.

I have purchased a bunch of OZONE products lately through the "Splice (Rent to own)" function on their service which is great because i just pay a certain amount of money each month until its paid off and i can use them to straight away to get results in order to pay for more.

I am NOT looking for a discount of any sort and would happily pay full price but i just can not afford to have spend that much money at one time.

I would love to be able to pay off the Fab Filter total bundle with a "Rent to own type" function, if a solution like this happened i would pay immediately and i'm sure a lot of other people would as well.

Maybe partner with Splice?

These prices may suit studios and successful engineers with money,
I cannot help but feel there is a void to be filled between lower scale artists and hopefully this can help your business and future customers.

Please take this into consideration because i would LOVE to purchase FabFilter products in the future.

Thank you for your time.

:)

Andy Makin

Hi Andy,

Than you for your interest in our plug-ins. At the moment, I don't think we'll be offering a rent-t-own or payment plan option any time soon. We did consider offering this type of payment a while back, but decided to wait offering this until there's more demand for it.

If you have any more questions, don't hesitate to send us an e-mail!

Cheers,

Maarten

Maarten

I for one would definitely purchase fab filter via a rent to own subscription!

Dan

The demand is huge people are always wanting a discount code I’m so die hard fab filter I bought the iOS iPad version.Love your products but people are beating the door down for discount codes is very telling .BTW there is a nasty very very very good clone of your product Q2 and it’s 70 percent cheaper.Just a heads up

Prenta

I second that, it would be HUGE if Pro-Q, for example, was an option in a rent-to-own plan. I live in Brazil so the currency conversion makes it way too expensive for me to buy it right away, but I could afford if I could pay along some months. The comment section on Splice is full of comments asking for FabFilter plugins plans, so I don't really think demand would be an issue for y'all.
Best regards.

Júlio Soares

Hi Júlio,

I understand! We will implement a rent-to-own system at some point in time, but that will probably be integrated in our own website and not via Splice.

Floris (FabFilter)

Defintely would appreciate a rent to own plan. I think many people would go for it.

Tomás Boils

Seeing as how expensive Fabilfter plugins are I'm supeised they haven't implemented this yet...

KC

Would be lovely with a rent-to-own option

Jonas

Would LOVE rent to own. I'm from the Philippines where the Peso is on a steady decline so purchasing straight out hasn't been an option for a while. Would love if you did this.
Thanks!

Manuel D

Yes, i would also love that rent-to-own option for FabFilter.

Tiago João

I'm in to purchase with a rent to own business model.

The demand is real

marcelo mandaji

HI Fabfilter,

This needs to happen very soon! I love your plugins. Each plugin is very well thought out and very in depth.

Do a survey to see how many people would go for the rent to own option. You will surely find that there is a very high demand.

David

Dear Fabfilter!
I hope you will decide to put your plugins on "rent-to-own" as soon as possible. I'm extremely interested in this too! :)
Thanks!

Kristof

definitely would be amazing, i am a full time student and i can barely afford 1 plugin let alone the bundle that i want, even at educational discount prices. Rent to own would be amazing!!!

masau chongwe spittle

I would be purchasing the total bundle immediately if I were able to rent to own those products. The products themselves are amazing and make me not want to use any others for the simple fact, they dont feel as good or do what I want them to do, where as FabFilter products always work a charm!

Kye

i want rent to own

DAVID DANIEL MONTESI

Rent to own is a normal business model these days. Even waves is offering a rent to own on their 3500 mercury bundle...js

Robert Cardona

Literally the only plugins I want. PLEASE make them rent to own

Brandon Kato

I join the request. Please make a subscription model)!

Max Kurbatov

definitely +1 for rent to own subscription!

Fajar

+ 1 more for either rent to own or a subscription service (like Slate, for example).

Paul Davison

Came HERE for the Rent to Own option, couldn't find one YET. As Jimmy Cliff says; Give the people what they want!

craggydread

WE NEEED PRO Q3 For rent to own!!!!

Anton Cevik

+1 Rent to own

Keanu Copp

I absolutely agree, fab filter products have become one of the top must haves but I think they’re behind the curve with their payment options. The likes of plugin alliance, izotope, slate and Avid with their rental system have much better options. I’d definitely use a rent to buy or subscription option for full price. However if they don’t offer it I’ll just keep using competition plugins until they slash the price with a weekend offer or something

Luke

Come on Fabfilter please do a rent to buy. There is more demand than you even realise!

Chris Wood

need rent to own!

Gabe

I understand! We will implement a rent-to-own system at some point in time, but that will probably be integrated in our own website and not via Splice.

Floris (FabFilter) — Oct 4, 2018

They've already said they're planning on rolling out an R2O system, chill guys :) In the meantime just get a credit card (if you can) and make use of 25% off bundle pricing at the usual times. Even allowing for 18% interest (pretty standard in the UK at least), FF bundles are still better value than PA for example. For £29/month you can get 12 plugins, not 10 and you only have to pay for 23 months, not 29. Plus on credit you can pause at anytime, unlike the PA deal, where you're locked in for the full term (or you cancel with nothing to show for it).

PieBerger

A rent-to-own scheme for FabFilter plugins would be incredible, and I am sure there are many like myself who wouldn't hesitate to purchase your products. I think demand would be very high and would ultimately increase the number of purchases.

Paul

+1 rent to own
A wise company is the one who listen its clients :)

UB

Rent to own would be great!!!

Peter

+1,000,000

Splice is the only reason I am a happy owner of Serum! : )

VSTJuNkiE

You guys are missing out on a ton of profit if you don’t plan on offering fab filter pro q 3 / bundle. Please!

Pj

I, too, would gladly purchase your products through a rent to own program if implemented.

Marcus

I like fabfilter plugins a lot, and would love to pay for rent to be able to use more of them!

Roman

Fabfilter, please provide rent to own ASAP... like tomorrow! Wherever it is, just do it!

Remi

à about 900€ the bundle, they don't care if you can/want to pay it at once, or "in modules".

The product is designed for a professional sound, if you "cannot pay it, you're not professional" (sadly oppinion).

IGT

Please maje them rent to own!

Antonio

Rent to Own.

Jack

Another one here for rent-to-own. I'd 100% rent a number of fabfilter plugins (ProR, ProL2, ProMB, ProQ3) if I knew I was going to own them at the end of the payment period. The 30 day trial is awesome but runs out quickly. It'd be great to be able to continue to use them whilst paying them off.

Ricky Evans

Rent to own please!!!!!! Many are waiting for that opportunity.

Marvin Ngema

Although I now own almost all the FabFilter plugins I would have loved to have a rent to own option.

Notheorem729

This needs to happen. :D

I'm in the same spot as so many others.

I currently rent. Pigments and Studio one 4 from Splice.

Wouldn't hesitate to rent-to-own your awesome products.

so PLEASE make it happen.

Like others have stated. The demans IS real. I really think you are loosing customers to other software just because of the huge amount you have to pay up front.

Love from Sweden!

Erik Lundin

Absolutely need a rent to own!!!

Ron

yes please

hilbrand

Please partner with Splice to create a rent to own option for Fab Filter package! I'm a broke Bishhhh but have wanted to own these plugins for quite some time! the only way I managed to afford Ozones package was with splice rent to own.

Ehren Wolf

I also agree that you are loosing a huge amount of customers to other plugin sites that offer rent to own options such as Waves which I also only have been able to afford because of thier rent to own options

Ehren Wolf

I am renting izotope, serum from Splice. PLEASE make Fabfilter plugins rent to own either on splice or on your platform. I would not hesitate to sign in if it is available now. Listen to your customers please.

Rishx

I´m also looking for option rent, otherwise I cannot afford it as beginner

Vlastimil

Another +1 here for FabFilter rent-to-own options. It would be awesome if it was available sometime this year!

Wes

I would happily do a rent to own as well. Or if it was even like what Slate do. I have the Slate bundle from Gobbler,Eventide, Roland Cloud, Serum, d16 bundle, Izotope Ozone 8 Advanced, Presonus Studio One, Sylenth and a few others and i'm always looking for new stuff, especially the Sonnox but they only do it for education at the moment but I have my fingers crossed. I think there would be a huge demand for this and I would jump on it straight away! I'm pretty sure thousands of people would sign up to this on the first day! Plugins are expensive and I believe this is the best way for most people like myself and a good way to combat piracy. I'd jump on right away if this option became available on your platform!

Fingers crossed!

kurtis mcloughlin

I’m so happy I started this post, I had no idea so many people were in the same boat.

Sadly 5 or so months later no action has been taken by FabFilter

Andy Makin

+1 for rent to own!

Clark

If there were a rent to own option I'd start it right now.

Kurt

Rent to own please!

Nat Ryles

Yeah, I would also like rent-to-own, isotope is doing it already, so it would be nice to know if you're planning to implement rent to own neatly seeing how big the demand is or if I should rather buy the izotope plugins on splice rather than yours ;)

Dave

Yes!!!! PLEASE RENT TO OWN OPTION!!!!!!

Scott Slonski

Had to jump in here also. Would rent to own on Splice as well.

rob

Had to jump in here also. Would rent to own on Splice as well.

rob

Yes really interested in a rent to own plan for Fabfilter products.

Nicholas Starkey

I´ve been waiting for you guys to do Rent to own or subscription based versions .

I`ll buy it all.

Christian

Christian

I’ve just been looking at rent to own plugins it would be great to get these on a payment plan.
Come on fab filter. Please

Fred Murray

i would subscribe in a heart beat.

Iain Roberton

Hi Fab Filter, its been almost a year since this thread first started and every month consistently potential customers have come on here voicing their support for Rent To Own.

Really hope you provide this service soon!!

David C

I would love it if you guys did rent to own and would jump on board immediately! Make it happen!

Matt R

Rent to own please!

I've been waiting for Pro Q to go into the rent to own section of splice for a while now. I'm currently paying for two top tier VST's, which I wouldn't have been able to afford without spreading the cost. The FabFilter plugs would be a great addition....Do it for the love, and we'll pay the money.

phil m

Ive used the trial of the fabfilter plugins, after seeing it in so many productions. i realy love this products, but they are to expensive for me to purchase in one payment. I would love it if there would be a rent variation.

Laurens

I am ready with my card in hand at the prospect of rent to own or a subscription service. Think about how much you could empower new producers who don't have the money for these great plugins. This would also reduce the amount of illegal downloading and use of your products.

Scenario:

Cant' make quality music without professional tools > can't make money from bad quality music > have no money to buy professional tools > Cant' make quality music without professional tools.

Mark

Yeah, option to rent to own FF plugins would be really amazing !

Sarada

I really want FabFilter plugs, please make this happen!

Leonardo

Yeah, your plugins are the best, but also too expensive. Having a rent to own system will open your products up to more people and ultimately more money for your company.

Patiently waiting on Splice Rent to Own Fabfilter product line.

Jason

One more vote for rent to own!

Rylan

I for one just discovered the plugins this year. Everytime I google searched the best "blank" a fabfilter plugin popped up. I love them now, but they are to expensive for me to purchase outright. So here's another vote for rent to own.

TechTaylor

Don't know who is making these decisions, but it's idiotic to not ALREADY have a rent-to-own option available. You're just missing out on money as a company and encouraging piracy from people who need your products but can't afford them outright.

mars

That’s weird. I can’t afford a Ferrari, yet its price doesn’t encourage me to steal it. Get a grip.

Of course, there are sound arguments to be made about rent to own, not dismissing those fwiw

Bram

I'm ready to do Rent to Own.

Marvin Ngema

Yes! the complete bundle; ready to rent-to-own!

jB

I would definitely get some fabfilter stuff if they go rent to own soon, I want Pro L2 and Pro C2 since a long time

Rodrigo

I literally google searched fab filter rent-to-own and found this thread.

+1 to rent-to-own option!

I love fab filter's products but don't have $$$ to throw down on it immediately. I rent-to-own a few things through splice, including my DAW.

So if whoever needs to see this is seeing it, There's a lot of people that would jump on board with it!

Michael Atkinson

Totally rent to own would be freaking amaze balls man

Ryan Brady

Would buy the complete bundle on the day rent to own happens

skxdlx

It's time fabfilter.

Plugin Alliance, Slate, Waves, Kush, SSL, MCDSP, Roland.
We're all just waiting for you and soundtoys to jump on the money train...
THE ERA OF SUBSCRIPTION/RENT TO OWN HAS BEGUN

Its Time

Rent-to-own and subscriptions are two very different things that you can't just lob together to try and make a point.

Torben Andersen

+1 here for rent-to-own. I am on-board with that in a heartbeat.

Mark Millen

been researching rent to own products today, have been producing music for years now and would love to own this product but can't afford it. as soon as it is made rent to own I will snap it up. thanks

tomas forlong

I'm also in for rent to own!

Timo

Add another person who would love a rent-to-own option. I would even be willing to pay a slight premium (ie interest) to do so.

Jonathan

Rent to own is great. Helps all the people who can't afford to buy your product outright.

Subscriptions like Plugin Alliance, Slate, Roland or Waves on the other hand are a whole different story. You keep paying forever, sometimes for a bundle you don't fully use all the time.

Considering the total bundle price of $1000 (or $750 on regular sales), a subscription doesn't make sense. A 24 month rent to own of about $40 would be great.

eshy

Rent to Own! Rent to Own! Rent to Own!

It will be the second Christmas for me when this happens!)

Dmitriy Schneider

+1 for rent to own! I would go total instantly.

Catechize Andrew

+1 Rent-to-own :)

UB

If I had a rent-to-own option this would be the easiest decision of my life!

RY

I own one fabfilter product and tried some other, I would definitely expand my collection through a rent to own subscription

Will

I think this is a great option. I will NOT use a product that requires a subscription fee (I have boycotted Avid and Slate because of this), but this would be a great option. Like the FabFilter team, I would prefer this be handled by FabFilter and not Splice. If they are half as good at handling this as they are at writing plugins, I imagine they will revolutionize the way plugin licenses are purchased.

Glen

+10000000

Chris

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE rent to own!

Paul

Would absolutely love this. I WANT to pay for fabfilter but there's no way I can fork out £700 for it all at once. You're a bit dumb to think everyone can. Make more money, make a rent to own system.

Nathan

Rent-to-own for total bundle, totally agree and will def pay every month the to own it.

Simon Wu

Yes would also buy rent to own

Timmeh

Add this comment to the growing list of people that want Fabfilter products through some sort of rent to own situation. We don't mind a small markup for this service. Its only fair. Please do this soon!

Chesare Johnson

Rent to own, would be great. Would buy it instantly!!!

Doom

+1 !

Joan

Seriously though?

Is this being implemented? Like the other 1000+ potential buyers I would purchase the total bundle instantly if there was an option for rent to buy. Hard to understand why Fabfilter can't see this as a good business model, the amount of loyal legitimate customers would increase exponentially!

Analogger

Hey guys!

Rent to own is a request we get a lot, and we are seriously looking into it. Keep you posted!

Cheers,

Ralph (FabFilter)

Would love you guys to review this, profits would increase, people who use the illegal versions will decrease ( You'll be better Off)

I've purchased Sylenth 1 + Serum + Izotope Ozone and have a subscription with SSL surely that's enough to actually get a subscription service or rent to own service up and running


Michael

And another one.

Request for a rent to own/subscription.

Charles Jewell

Will this ever come out in the near future? I want to buy the pro q this black Friday but I'd love to get the essential with the rent to own!

Anto

Hi! Please allow rent to own - it's a win win situation - I bet your sales will skyrocket in a week! you will make more from waaaay more people than you think! its a huge demand for this! PLease partner with Splice for a rent to won program. You wanna sell your products, right? I own now Serum and Ozone through this program (otherwise I think I'll never had all money to pay all upfront)

razvan

You would make us and thousands more happy if you provide the FabFilter Pro bundle! It seems like profit is wasting away to piracy which most people who’ve used it resorted to that option...because nobody can afford it.. seriously it’s stupid not to offer this by now

Peejumz

Please do rent to own!

Jesse Tabak

Hey I've heard FabFilter plugins are pretty much the best. They're expensive though so I think I'll wait to buy them until you have a payment plan or rent to own program on Splice. I think there's plenty of demand.

Brandon der Blatter

The Demand has already been here, You guys never asked the fans and customers if that would help them in any way.. Just shut us down with NOT ENOUGH DEMAND!?!?

Just kidding, Your products are super solid and cant wait for a month to month!

ChaseThaDream

David Bruce

I purchased Serum and several Izotope plugins via Splice's rent-to-own system. I would purchase Fabfilter's Total bundle through Splice as well. I always hesistate on going in on Fabfilter because the best value is in the bundles, but the bundles are quite a big chunk of change.

Raj

I need this now...Working on something that begs for the Pro R. make it happen ASAP.

Nokturnl

Let's go month to month please

Velour

I would absolutely start my rent to own subscription for the FabFilter Total Bundle right this moment if it was available.

Honestly, right now I am using a slightly older, torrented version of the Total Bundle and it works great, but I wouldn't hesitate to pay and do things the right way and have updated, untampered softtware if I didn't have to drop all that money at once.

I'd prefer if you guys did use your own platform, I don't use Splice but if that was your only way of providing it, I would.

Sylenth can be bought in payments, I just bought the Arturia V Collection in 4 separate payments. My dream would be to see FabFilter, Sound Toys and Eventide provide a rent to own model.

Rob

And I want to be clear I literally mean rent to own, not an overall subscription service.

Rob

Hi Rob,

Thanks for your message. We are thinking about implementing rent-to-own in the future, but I can't promise when I'm afraid.

in the mean time, we would be happy to simply offer you a few evaluation extensions, so you can use the official versions for a few months while saving up for the purchase... Just e-mail us if that helps!

Floris (FabFilter)

I would 100% purchase or rent, via subscription the entire plugin bundle. I used to use cracked versions of photoshop back in the 00s but I’ve been a happy subscriber since creative cloud was released. To not have a subscription available means you are missing out on guaranteed customers.

IMHO Kilohearts subscription model is very interesting

kilohearts.com/products/kilohearts_subscription

ub

Yes, please consider rent to own! I'm on it as soon as it drops!

Crews

You should definitely consider this,
I would be a participant.

Ben

I was just wondering if you were doing this...
I would definitely but your plugins as well if you had that method.

You're plugins are worth every penny, It would be great if you would think about this.

James L.

You should CONSIDER this DEFINITELY!

IZOTOPE, PRESONUS, ARTURIA and many more offer this! Why not you?

Make your fuckin bundle with a subscription. You wouldnt loose anything... but customers.

Not everyone is able to buy your bundles upfront.

LewLew

Give the people what we want!! Rent to own!

Ben

I can see the level of entitlement hasn't faded away and in fact seems to have worsened. When did screaming in someone's face ever get you what you wanted. The angry bratty children need to learn to read and see that FF have already responded above that R2O is on the roadmap. Be patient or get a credit card like the adults you are supposed to be.

PieBerger

Yep am here to support forum petitions. Rent to own it's a bussines model that you won't loose nothing. In the worst scenario customers stop making payments. Expired license!

Jonathan

what are they waiting for?

pablo

Pretty amazing they haven't listened to so many potential customers... There should be a rent to osn option by now.

Sam

+1 Another vote for Rent to Own here!

Eneko

SPLICE or Fabfilter please we need this!!

Guil

Two years after this post was created and people are still commenting and requesting for FabFilter to have a rent-to-own subscription for their products.

I, like many others have already mentioned, cannot afford to outright pay $1000 to own everything, which is why we turn to illegitimate means to obtain these plugins. We do not want to do this! We want to support your company, so please make it easy for us!

The current business model is archaic and needs to be updated. SoundsOnline's (EastWest Sounds) subscription-based model has been a complete success, as have all of Splice's rent-to-own products.

FabFilter, you need to realise that the demographic of musicians is no longer the top 1% of the wealthy elite, so please make it accessible for the rest of us!

With thanks!

Anton

I find it crazy that it's now 2020 and they still haven't implemented this yet.

bryan

+1 For R2O. It’s the best model for the future. You can already see the demand from this post alone.

Peter

+1

Neil

Rent-to-own is a fantastic option for many, since some of us can't afford to buy the product in one go. I hope FabFilter can still consider this, given that many vendors have this option.

Jonathan

Pretty disappointing with your lack of interest in this guys. You said there wasn't demand but just in this forum alone you have hundreds of people saying they would start it straight away. So many people use your cracked plugins because you don't offer this... I cannot believe you're 5 years behind the time... get it together!

music man

Man … I can’t believe there are actually people “threatening” (more or less) to use cracked versions if they don’t get the RTO service – like NOW! That’s so wrong. If one is serious about their music work, they don’t use cracked versions. Not having enough money is not an excuse.

The devs have been kind enough to offer a compromise (se post @ Dec 10, 2019), but that’s still not enough … Come on!

Valle

+1 for rent to own please.

I honestly dont understand why you haven't made this happen already, seems like there is a big enough demand for it.

Izotope Ozone9 is a great alternative it already rent2own >:)

Adnan El Shaer

Get a rent to own please. Id be all over it. Even if you could put a few hundred down then make payments..

Scott

It would be very nice to be able to rent your plugins! I have signed up for the annual Plugin Alliance offer and I think I will renew my subscription! I'm seriously thinking of doing that Slate Digital too and maybe Splice. Then, yours !!!!

Stefano Sergi, Italy

Stefano Sergi

The fact that they still haven't implemented this is beyond stupid.

Just going through this thread there's literally 10's of thousands of dollars sitting on the table that could have been made through this system over the last 2 years.

Maybe they are allergic to money. Who knows?

Get with the program people, your plugin's rock but your business acumen is terrible.

The market needed this 2 years ago already...
