    Yeah.... I guess not. Thanks anyway. I'll have a look at Motu's BPM. Maybe they answer emails & stuff.

    Yeah, but I don't understand why there's no demo until now. It's a very important aspect if you ask me. As I told before: there are some of us who can't get their hands on hardware at the local store, because there's no such thing. There's just a company that retails NI's products via online store.

    And that sucks. It's not that cheap for a hobby musician like me who is not earning money from music.

    Why? Because it hasn't been released yet- the official release isn't until next month.

    Figure in at least one maintenance update due to the lead time required to have the DVDs duplicated, and then making a demo version of that- somehing that will give a good overall feel for the program but still be not too large to download.

    My guess? Maybe middle of March/beginning of April at the earliest.

    will there be a demo version of the software?

    I would like to demo the software at some point to see if it does everything I would want.

    Will this be available soon?

    Trust me, my local music stores will NOT have maschine. That's why I'd like to know if there will be a software demo. That will tell me all I need to know.

    Same here. They are basically a warehouse that sells through internet.

    I have a bad feeling there won't be any demo download at all :( after I've seen the 1.0.2 update today.

    i actually don't know... but

    The 1.0.2 update has been release early becuase so many people have received the product.

    sorting out a demo version does take time.

    At least I hope we'll get the documentation on March 1st. Although, looking on other NI products, they don't have the docs online as a free download :(

    No, but the demos include the full manuals (a la Kore 2).

    And that leads to my problem :D No demo no manual :p
    I'm sure they'll post one. They have a demo for everything, unlike the guys from Motu which I had to beg for a demo of BPM with no result :(

    One thing I've noticed is that when you install the product you have a 15 day "trial" or demo. if you don't wanna input your serial # you don't have to for 15 days.


    the only problem is the Library is 5+ gigs, so I don't know how a demo is going to work... but as far as the Software plugin, it does have a demo mode. I am sure they can post the plugin online for demo, but I assume they are working out what samples and how many the demo gets, (size of dled, etc). plus I didn't activate my 15 day trial, so I don't know if its too functional (like a legit product but only working for 15 days) maybe they have to trim it down so the demo doesn't get used and abused as a full program?

    Yeah you're probably right. That's good news. I wonder why nobody mentioned that before ;)

    because that version was bought with the Hardware Controller.

    you still have to register the bought package. and until you register it, it runs in demo mode.

    a demo version without the Gardware Controller is something else.

    the software is pretty cool even without the Hardware Controller.
