I can't answer that one, but I can report that the library sounds as good as it did previously, no damage was done! And the addition of the SAM Brass samples is great! The choir thing still doesn't seem useful, but then I didn't really expect it to be a replacement for a real choir library.
The new UI is so easy to use that the manual seems superfluous.
The engine uses a lot less system resources than K2 Player, and less than the K3 player.
The registration thing is a minor annoyance, and after all that beta testing I really do feel sympathy for Gary, the developers, and the testers... man nothing stinks more than something that seemingly obvious slipping through.
