The GS3 thread will be up till April!!! Breaking all internet forum records!!!!!!!!!
BUT - other cool news!!!
Apple/eMagic -- Apple is basically giving away all its plugins!!! (sorta) All VSTi\'s and effects (including Space Designer and new AMP SYM and 2 new soft synths) are bundle into Logic Pro. There is only Logic Pro and Express (hence: Final Cut Pro/Express). The upgrade is only $199 for all Platinum and GOLD (even) 6 users! Glad they throw us a bone before LAP 7 \'Cocoa\' ;-)
Line6 Variax acoustic -- their electric Variax is amazing, cant wait to try this one out!!!
Stylus Upgrade - I LOVE stylus, use it almost everyday. But i was hoping for at least! a soundset companion to the currrent version. Or at least SOME addons before a new version. Wonder if this will the the norm with standalone sampler/plugins :-/ i sure hope not!! Is it safe to coin a new term for this \"Disposable-Ware\" ??
Mackie - They waste their downsized dev team on the silly analog/firewire mixer -- weird! And still NO C4 Extender for Mackie Control. Grrrrrr.
And the new Oxford-Wannabe digital mixer. *sigh*
Tascam/Gigastudio - Yes, ok, finally - its here already. But let us look at this from a broad perspective. It has been HOW MANY years since a logical upgrade ? Come on!! Can they now take follow in how graphics programs operate their updates ? ... they KEEP THEIR PRODUCTS fresh, or at least, create an illusion of doing so. AND the people always upgrade and are happy. Period. Photoshop v26 and customers will still nod and say \"Ok, Mr Adobe\". Then you have Apple/eMagic, a software plaform under a HUGE change, sure they are developing a NEW Logic as we speak, but to quiet the angry masses, they throw us a bone, and ya know what, it shuts us up. Tascam should have done the same over a year ago!! It\'s just sad, sure it has some nice features ... but, what \'innovations\' does it have? Any? Hmmmmm
**Talk amongst yourselves**
