Products and licencing

Free-for-life updates

We provide free-for-life updates for all of our products. This means that you will never need to pay to upgrade our software! We may cancel this unusual offer at any time, so take it while you can.

Any update to any software is free for our customers!

Usually you have to pay for upgrades of most software of other companies. Not here at MeldaProduction! When you purchase any software, you will be granted free upgrades forever!

Any software added to a bundle is free for owners of the bundle!

Every time we release a new software product and add it to a bundle, we give it to all current owners of the bundle for free. Of course, we have free-for-life updates too at MeldaProduction!

Trial versions and purchasing

All software can be downloaded from the download page. Commercial software is available as fully-functional 15-day trials. After that the plugins switch to demo mode with several limitations. After that you need to purchase a licence from the same web page and activate the software. It will then start working fully again.
MDrummer Large is different. It includes a huge sounds library, so we recommend that you try MDrummer Small, which contains a demo version, instead.

You can purchase any licence from the product page simply by clicking the "Buy Now" button. You will be redirected to the checkout and then to FastSpring's site, which handles any transactions. It will show you the accurate price in your currency. The purchases are instant. You will receive a licence via email immediately after the purchase and it will be also added to your account, from where you can download it at any time.

Software licences

We now use licence files to activate our software. Each file contains information about the individual user to whom it is registered. There is no need for an Internet connection nor hardware dongle for activation. The usual way of activation is to drag & drop your licence file into the plugin you are activating. Some hosts, especially on Mac OS X, interfere with this process, in which case you have to take an alternative approach as described in this video tutorial.

Every licence key can be activated on all your machines.

We use so-called "to-person" licences, which means that you, and only you, the owner of the licence, are allowed to use the software. However you can activate it on any number of computers as long as you personally own them. When you upgrade a computer, you may need to reactivate the product(s).

Licence can be transferred for a fee of 20% of the current full price.

The licence files are registered to you as an individual, but you can still transfer them to another person directly from your user account. The transfer fee is 20% of the full price. For example, if your product's full price (discounts are not relevant) is currently 100 EUR, the fee is 20 EUR. You can do the transaction yourself from your user account.

Subscriptions

A subscription is the best way to get access to the huge set of our products immediately and for a great price.

It's simple. We have introduced a new licensing product, MCompleteBundle, which includes all of our products - effects and instruments. By subscribing, you can have access to all of that, as long as your subscription is valid. Just follow the link and click one of the Subscribe buttons.

Note: Your computer(s) needs to be connected to internet at least from time to time, so that the plugins can validate the subscription. We are not responsible for connection problems caused by your internet access provider.

Get a full licence when done

That's right! When the sum of your regular payments reaches or exceeds the current price of MCompleteBundle, you automatically get the full licence; no more subscription payments, ever. Please note that by current price we mean the price at that moment and this price may change at any time in the future.

Monthly or yearly payments

You can choose to pay monthly or yearly, in advance. The yearly subscription is considerably cheaper. Please note that the period you choose cannot be changed at the moment. The price you pay will never be changed. If you buy a first month for 49 EUR, next month it will be 49 EUR etc. We will never charge you more (unless you stop the subscription and start again, if the prices have changed).

How do the payments work?

When starting a new subscription, you pay for the first period (one month or one year) via our partner's payment gateway, currently fastspring.com. That is the same as you would for a regular licence. The gateway takes it from there. It's responsible for charging you again once the subscription period is over. FastSpring accepts all major credit cards, PayPal, bank transfers, cheques and more.

If the recurring charge is unsuccessful (for any reason, the most common being insufficient funds on your bank account), the gateway will send you a notification and try again. Don't worry. If that happens, there's a two week grace period to fix the issue and get your subscription running again.

Keep in mind that any subscription that's overdue for more than two days will be considered invalid and the plugins will switch to expired demo mode until you make the subscription work again or get a normal licence.

Canceling your subscriptoion

You can cancel your subscription at any time by clicking the Cancel subscription button in your account page after signing in. After that, you won't be charged any more.

Until the current period (month or year depending on your initial choice) is over, the subscription stays valid. During this period, you can change your mind and restore (uncancel) the subscription. In that case, you will be charged again when the current period is over, as if nothing happened.

A canceled subscription gets disabled when it's been canceled and the current period ends. After that, you cannot restore it. If you decide to continue the subscription program later, you have to repeat the initial purchase. Even then, all your subscription payments add up and you get a full licence when you reach the full MCompleteBundle price.

How to enable subscriptions in the plugins?

First of all, download and install the newest version of our plugins. Subscription licencing is available from version 7.00 for MDrummer and version 11.02 for everything else. Then purchase the subscription on our site. You can check the status of your subscription in your user account at any time.

When your subscription is active, open any of our plugins, click the Settings button in the top right corner and in the Settings window click the Subscriptions button in the top right corner. That will display a window where you enter your username and password, so that the plugin can validate the subscription by contacting our servers and checking your user account. The plugins will contact our servers in the future as well, whenever appropriate.

If you are on the road without internet access, it is recommended to update the subscription manually in this window from time to time, just to be sure that your licence won't stop working while you are without internet access.
