+1 Maybe it will be on sale in the future like all of EWQL products
I will definitely wait for user feedback on Play 6. We had too many free messed up releases. I don't feel like paying for a mess.
About 2 years ago, they announced a new Play Pro for a year later (iinm).
Oh yeah, I remember. Never appeared.
I’ll pay double if PLAY 6 can custom assign key switch for multiple patches and resource friendly. Hopefully the dream comes true.
I wouldn't count on it
Did they fix the release tails not always playing unless the samples were loading fully into memory or on a very fast SSD?
Pay for the host software? That is pretty cheesy...
The only library that requires PLAY 6 has PLAY 6 included.
So is Play 6 the Play Pro that was never released? Also if we buy Play 6, do they shave off that $30 from the price of HC? (Guessing not considering this is EW we're talking about here)
I understand that. It just rubs me the wrong way.
Maybe I woke up on the wrong side of the bed today.
I certainly understand why it rubs you the wrong way. Just wanted to clear that up before people (not you) start thinking everyone has to buy it or their software won't work - or anything along those lines.
Nope. PLAY Pro would be EW's equivalent to NI's Kontakt (as opposed to Kontakt Player) if I remember that correctly. PLAY 6 is not that.
Good call on your part. I didn't think about that. I need to work on keeping my sarcastic comments to myself.
Yes -- same here
Heh, what happens then if EW doesn't feel like updating Play 5 for a version of MacOS or Windows that doesn't support it anymore? Their record on updating and maintaining old products isn't exactly stellar.
I know it's only 30 bucks (40 here), but I have no use for a search database (took them one year... w-t-f?)
Jay, you tested Play 6 ? There is a Key Switch parameter in the Play 6 guy, assigned a C-2, which make total sense for a key switching. So I was wondering if it could be configured for custom keyswitching?
Huge disappointment having to pay for an engine to play my expensive libraries. I was always defending EW for making their own engine in order to better protect their stuff, but hey - Play 6 is not a sampler and cannot be used without EW libraries, so .. what on earth?
I am not specifically responding to you, but to the masses who have posted similarly. No one is forcing you to update to Play 6. It is NOT needed to run any of their current libraries. Further, WHEN it become NECESSITY in their FUTURE libraries, you DO GET IT FOR FREE!
When we bought our current libraries, nothing, other than what we currently have, was implied. There were no promises for updates or anything of that sort.
Additionally, and I could be wrong, we don't have confirmation that Play 5 is no longer under development. I am sure it is no longer being developed, but I am also sure that most of us will have purchased a Play 6 library before our OSes no longer support Play 5.
I am frustrated with the delay of the choirs, but hopefully will see a great product released.
You just don't get it. Play 5 is free for our current purchased libraries, they release Play 6 which we have to pay. They barely have enough coding resources to keep their current stuff up. When an OS release breaks Play 5, they will not bother to update it.
I know the EW Admin posted it as a starbucks run, but not all of us run under US Currency - I can afford 40 bucks, but the principle of the thing is super wrong!
