Synthstrom Audible "Deluge" Sampler/Synth/Groovebox


#802

Certainly seems like an awesome machine! Would seriously consider getting one if the import taxes here in Denmark weren’t so insane. It sadly makes it too expensive…


#804

Hi! What would the import fees be in DK? I’ve been considering one of these but hadn’t thought of the import taxes.


#805

it’s 23% import tax in Ireland. is it the same Europe wide?


#806

I’m really trying to convince me that an external multi effects processor for my Mpc Live is what I need instead of the Deluge…


#807

It’s 25% like in Norway? I paid about 900 DKK extra costs.

But it’s totally worth it!!


#808

Actually, would import tax be due when I buy one in Australia/NZ and bring it home myself (or ask somebody)?


#809

It is if they catch you at custom…


#810

We are planning to stay a few months if we go, … like a second extended family honeymoon (we never had one in the first place :vampire:t2:‍♀️ :vampire:t2:‍♂️)

…so by the time we get back it would be used. Will see, don’t need it really but looks like a great travel music box.

Extreme 1st world issue anyway :umbrella:


#811

All in all with taxes and fees it’s probably around 30%. So the Deluge is 987USD including shipping to Denmark. So it’s going to end up costing around 1280USD


#812

If it’s 25% of the price of the Deluge (899USD without shipping) in import taxes how can you only end up paying 900 DKK (Danish currency) extra?


#813

I had about the same experience. I paid about 1,000SeK in taxes, which would make the price of my Deluge around 995USDollars.


#814

When you buy one the guys send you a mail asking you to tell them how much your tax was and they keep a track - so you can mail them and ask how much the taxes were for a country (assuming at least 1 has been bought from that country of course)


#815

Did it go up in price?
Right now it’s 899USD without shipping and 987USD with shipping to Denmark.


#816

No, that sounds about as when I bought it.

Hang on - I forgot about shipping. So yeah, my Deluge was about 995US including taxes + shipping, which was an additional 50 or so.


#817

Yes, I send them a message 3 days ago, but haven’t heard back from them yet. I bet they are swamped after Superbooth and can’t keep up with orders and inquiries.


#818

That’s pretty cool… is the Toshiba card the one that comes stock with the Deluge?


#819

Ah nice! So it comes with a SD-card? 32Gb or?


#820

No no, that’s something you’d need to get yourself to use Downrush which is third-party software created by a user :slight_smile:


#821

I think it’s 8 or 16 gigs, not sure what it is currently, I bought my Deluge around a year ago.
Since all of Deluge’s data is xml and is based on saving songs, settings, synth presets, samples and kits to the SD it needs to come with one :slight_smile:


#822

I see. Thanks :slight_smile:
