@Natanr Sorry buddy, but that's not an improvement over woocommerce, which also offers those features, plus it is customizable and there are tons of add-ons for it.
I am a session drummer-producer based out of Miami, FL. I spend most of my time in my home studio where I record drums, produce midi drum beats and work on my sampled drum instruments. I am also a professional audio engineer. You can see hear and see my work on my website and if you are a BeatBuddy owner, you have already been playing to my drum beats and sampled instruments.
In addition to drums, I love all aspects of music and music production. When I am not busy with the intriguing world of music, I do other creative projects around the house. After I built my recording studio, I spent quite a bit of time building furniture, a wall-fence, a deck with pergola and a music stage among other things. If it is creative, I will likely enjoy doing it.
I am self-driven, work hard and will go to great lengths to accomplish what I set my mind to.
I love traveling and meeting people from all parts of the globe. I have traveled extensively and plan on doing a lot more of it in the future.

Perhaps this - https://woocommerce.com/products/software-add-on/
I think I might use this myself actually, looks simpler than my original idea...
I think that this is something completely different. Opens yet another can of worms It doesn't seem to solve anything new.
RE: Export tool
@d-healey All of that logging-in to download is clever.
I am wondering, though, if that would add extra steps. You would not want users to login for every single plugin that they need to download samples for (eg. 15 times). Also, this would also kind of limit that the only place you sell your plugins is your own store.
Perhaps a better-suited solution then would be to have a dedicated download/install manager which connects to your store and displays available downloads. Then user clicks on them to download and install them all in one go. I am thinking about what Plug Alliance has done.
RE: Export tool
@Christoph-Hart The issue I am seeing with downloading the samples from within a plugin is that you have no control over how many times it is downloaded or who is downloading it. When you sell digital products using WooCommerce, you have an option to specify the maximum number of downloads.
While this is not a big deal for small files, it can become more crucial for 1GB archives if they are downloaded multiple times and you are paying for the download data. It becomes even more crucial if your plugin gets illegitimately shared. Then, not only are you not getting paid for it, but you will be forking the charges for large file downloads from non-customers.
In WooCommerce you can cap the maximum number of downloads per product, per customer. You are able to add additional legitimate downloads on a case-per-case basis if needed.
Where and when would this download dialog of yours appear? What if a user needs to re-download?
I am interested in hearing more about your overall concept for downloads from within plugins.
RE: Export tool
@d-healey I just want to add one more important bit of feedback/ suggestion.
After giving it a lot of consideration, I plan on supplying my products as single installers that contain both the plugin and samples. I want my installers to take care of the whole process in one go, including extracting the samples to the correct location. I also want to avoid requiring users to have to "hook" up the samples to the plugins on the initial loading, then having to reload the plugin. Those are unnecessary duplicate steps that can easily be avoided with a good installation procedure.
So, my suggestion is to include a simple feature in the installer that accommodates this. Once a user specifies the sample directory and they are copied there, have the installer create the text file automatically and place it in the plugin folder. So, when a user loads the plugin for the very first time, it will already be hooked up and ready to go. No additional, unnecessary "locate samples" dialog.
Just imagine how annoying it would be for someone who purchases a bundle of, say 15 products, to have to locate samples for each plugin, one by one, after they had already installed them all.
I would rather do 15 extra steps on my end to cut 3 steps for the customer on their end. To me personally, this is a must prerequisite functionality for picking an installer software.

@d-healey That's good to know. Thank you!
