    Today I have learned that Avid Pro Tools is offering a free 3 month license extension for all current Pro Tools license holders due to the COVID-19 crisis. So if your Pro Tools License ran out or is running out you can re-up for a temporary, no-charge, free 3-month license. That's way cool!

    A bit of bad news. Mark your calendars for the 31st of May 2020 because Native Instruments plans to discontinue a boat load of older products of theirs. That means you will no longer be able to use the Native Instruments activation server to re-install your older Native Instruments products even though you may hold a legal license. People in the other forums are extremely pissed offed about this development. Some have purchased licenses in thousands of dollars over the years. The timing for such a thing is really, really bad for Native Instruments. Just as in all global commodities, products, and services there has been a slow down in new Native Instruments licenses. Some suspect it is due to COVID-19. You may be forced to purchase the newer versions of their products if those products are still important to you. They should have postponed this dramatic anoucement, but they did not. There is still time now to reactivate your older Native Instrument licenses before it is too late. Mark your calendars for the 31st of May 2020 because that is when this all goes down. If this changes, I will let you know.

    Joe: Not free, but I read that Genesis Pro, a new synth from a developer/DJ in Israel, is supposed to be only 1£. It is just released and available only for PC. I'm on Mac and haven't been able to check it out or even to determine if the marketing info for it was accurate.

    https://webshop.oz-soft.com/en/

    Hope you and family are keeping safe. Crazy times.

    JoeFunktastic : Wed 18th Mar 2020 : 2 weeks ago

    Awesome! Thanks for the correction Eric! Everything is good man. I made it, you know what mean! Okay, I am a bit confused Eric, and forgive for that. But which link of is is not free? I need Shan to strike it. Cheers!

    EricMilligan : Wed 18th Mar 2020 : 2 weeks ago

    Sorry, Joe. I wasn't clear in my post. I was too cryptic.

    Your posts are fine. No need to strike anything.

    I was just saying that there is another instrument that is, supposedly, quite inexpensive. That's the one I was referencing: Genesis Pro. Since it isn't available yet for Mac, I wasn't able to get it and check it out. I'm puzzled why the developer would charge only 1€ for what looks to be a serious instrument, but perhaps he charges more to unlock certain features? Anyway, probably worth checking out for anybody who is on a PC, not Mac.

    Eric, Your fellow Outauain here who owes U a café, how are U doing mate. I hope you and your love ones are safe in Ottawa at the moment. Please stay isolated if U can until this mess passes us by!

    EricMilligan : Thu 19th Mar 2020 : 2 weeks ago

    Hi, Steve! As venerated ancient ones, we are definitely staying isolated as much as possible. Have been preparing for weeks.

    I look forward to coffee with you when things settle down, although I fear that may not occur for quite a while. And, I need to return your copy of "Days of Future Passed" that you lent me, what, 3 years ago? :)

    In the meantime, more time available to make music! Might even finish something so that I can post another track or two here on Looperman! :)

    Joe:

    Ozsoft, developer of the Genesis Pro soft synth, just sent out an email to their customers. Looks like they need to do some more work to get the plugin stable and ensure that their licensing system works properly. They are working on fixes, but, I'd advise Looperman members to wait a couple of weeks before taking the plunge. It looks really promising and the 1£ price is definitely astoundingly low, but they need a bit more time to get it locked down and properly functional.

    JoeFunktastic : Thu 19th Mar 2020 : 2 weeks ago

    I actually saw this one before you posted this a few days ago Eric. Definitely worth the money. The sound and chords ability is so amazing. Eric, this is something I would professionally recommend to any producer. He made it so easy for a novice to a pro. Sorry for the mix up.

    I do scrutinize and investigate all of my links before posting them here. There are some links that I have not posted due to scammers and third party hack sites like warez. So I do filter out garbage like that. But Genesis Pro looks great! Thanks!

    I've been messing around with the korg thing mostly and i'd like to note that it's not bad at all but it exports to soundcloud and can be converted into abelton projects from your phone.

    i appreciate this thread, its good to condense all this info into one place and new toys are always appreciated for the low price of free.

  19. 630386
    JoeFunktastic : Thu 19th Mar 2020 : 2 weeks ago

    Mr. Cybertooth thank you man. I am so glad that Shan supported this idea. These are trying times and every little bit count.

    Man, there is nothing open around here where I am at. But we here are so fortunate to have music skills, no matter what the level, big or small.

    I think there is a huge oppertunity here for mobile and handheld devices during this crisis to redefine what todays modern studio is. Yes this KORG thing is sick! Everybody, you got to get this thing! The 20th of March is last day for this COVID-19 special everyone! It goes back to $20 USD after that.

    Prayers goes out to the ill and infected. Prayers also for the families of those we have lost worldwide due to the current crisis.

    You are now hearing alot about a formerly obscure term known as Social Distancing. Some of you may already have it built-in already like: HEY YOU DAMN KIDS, GET OFF MY LAWN! Or you may know someone with road-kill bad breath, that will set some serious boundries.

    But seriously, what is social distancing? Well here it is in under a minute.

    Hi Joe I love the app. I am a big fan on your loops!

    I have been trying to contact you. I need a little help with music.

    When you see this can you email (iamfaaze @gmail.com) or can I email you? thanks man

    JoeFunktastic : Thu 19th Mar 2020 : 2 weeks ago

    Hey Lee! I have been seeing your plea to the community in the forums that you have created recently. Man, you are the top Deep House guy on this thing. My respects! I have sort of made a name for myself in Deep House loops here as well. Lee, no excuses just truth, I would be honoured to work with you. But, during this crisis I have over committed myself. My daughter is home from school because they shut down her school due to COVID-19 out of an over abundance of caution. I am homeschooling her. They are staying closed until the 3rd of April. I have lots to do. So that is not a no. I just have to postpone it for a bit. I will send you a DM.

    Joe
