    Anybody Upgraded RA to the Play Version?

    I'm curious if anybody has made this switch yet, and if the improved playability justifies spending the money. I'm a little bummed at forking over another hundred bucks because I just bought RA a few months before the Play version came out. But if it noticeably improves the legato and other expressive playing, I'll have to bite the bullet.

    I wouldn't upgrade now even it was free. I am now so deeply suspicious of EWQL products that I need to wait a few months at least until reliable reports come in of the bug factor.

    Word does seem to be trickling in that the 1.2 release is much improved. Still undecided about the RA upgrade, however.

    I have the Play edition. No problems here.

    I have NI RA and will be upgrading to PLAY now that 1.2 is working well. I have just switched to PLAY SO Gold and that is working very well (now that I've upgraded to Cubase 5). Might as well take advantage of the cheap upgrade prices at the moment.

    Great! And is the Play version clearly superior to the NI version?

    PLAY has a cleaner interface, and a decent convolution reverb. It also has a legato and portamento function that can sound fairly decent in the right context.

    The sound of the PLAY engine is different from the NI player. This may or may not be a good thing. I haven't quite aclimated yet.
