Hi,

Then finally create an area here in the forum where you give the latest version and which anyone who has paid can simply get it.
Is that so hard ?
Here people are talking with the test versions of you already and let go of sayings of which we do not even know that it exists.
We appreciate everything your work, we also want the VA2.
But give everyone the opportunity to get the same and the latest version you are working on.
It is an inequality that must not be.
Version 19.01.02.03.04.05.06.07.08.09 ... etc. where is the problem?

What difference, or effort, does it take to write ALL the numbers - it may not seem to make a difference - but people feel they want to know.   

I'm actually beggining to feel how my wife must feel when she wants me to mow the lawn - nag! nag! nag!    :(

When I have changed a part of the signature of the program to try to get better favors against the antivirus, I have changed the number to recognize it. I also sent it to few users to test if it really helps or not with anti virus.
When one user told me about problems with some VST, it was hard for me to understand the problem, and I had to do a big cleaning in the code.
In the beginning, vArranger had only one midi out, then we have added MIDI OUT 2, and then MIDI OUT 3. This caused the code to send to MIDI OUT 1 and MIDI OUT 2 and MIDI OUT 3, and the code become not very clear, and difficult to maintain.
I did the big work of putting everything in different classes and now I can loop through the MIDI OUTs easily, and also maybe add later a MIDI OUT 4 more easily, and also differentiate a bit more the MIDI outs characteristics.
This was a big internal change, so I changed the number to get a trace of it, and send it to few users to test.
When some users reported problems with their screen, I did a change that can impact the vArranger display. As there is so much different screens configurations, size, resolutions, dpi, font size, font languages... I changed the number, and send to few users to test.
And some other changes like this...
All this... I am not 100% sure if I did it well until I get the result of the testing, and add it to the future version 1.20
With such changes, I prefer to not send the not fully tested version to everyone, and then discover problems.
I have many pro users, giging musicians etc... and I am really afraid when I change some lines of code

Please stay confident that I only want the best for all my users, and take the best decisions, so my users can play music without having all the worries I have.
Also, don't think that some users are preferred etc...and some are forgotten, if the 1.19.XX is not exactly the same for everyone.
The 1.20 will be the same
I also can't communicate always, everything... as not all is interesting, and my time is somewhat limited

Yes, I want to finish the tuning of the new sample streaming engine, before releasing something for every one.
With this new coming feature, I am able to play our 4 soundbanks and more with a little computer that has only 2GB of RAM.
SSD hard drive is a good option to profit of fast sound loading, and low memory usage

Dan,
As a potential new subscriber, I anxiously await release of the New vArranger 2020 Version end of this month (as promised in PM).
Are you still on track for delivery?
What are Pros and Cons of using sf2 vs sfz with vArranger ? 

Regards.

Yes Yes Yes !

Basically, most of users does not created their own samples. They use SF2 or SFZ instruments found on internet
You can simply use both together in vArranger

I read somewhere on the forum that SFZ format allows a more in depth (sound) synthesis than the SF2 format, hence the question.

Great news....re the 2020 version.

I haven't asked for a long time, today is September 1st.
Is the new version already available, I haven't received it yet.
Shouldn't it actually work automatically?
Or do you have to ask again?

:'(version

I am certain there are many others including myself, eagerly awaiting the proposed varranger2 VERSION 'NEXT' 2020 posted on the forum now over a year ago.

Whilst your dedication and commitment to the continued development of varranger2 is indisputable, timely and accurate feedback seems to be lacking in this instance. 

Based on some users posts, this gives the impression of favoritism and inequality in receiving updates due to them. It also appears that collecting
50 Euro updates from existing users is now priority than wooing new subscribers to increase your user base, (financially...,the latter should also be considered).

The VERSION 'NEXT' 2020 offers the ideal situation to achieve this.

In spirit of transparency, and to assuage user concerns, why not state the latest version available (i.e. v1.19.12,.13 or.14 etc) with updated features to facilitate informed decisions.

I hope this response is not viewed negatively or as a personal affront, but in some way to improve communications in the future.   

My question still remains, what is the latest status on the version 'NEXT' 2020 upgrade?

Committed to subscribing when released.

Dan,
Are you OK,? Hope you are in good health. Your silence is deafening. I had no feedback to my post sent 3 days ago.

Myself and two others are waiting to subscribe, but are confused at your non- response.

To assist with purchase, could you state: (1). Latest v1.19 varranger version available and features still to be installed .
(2). New ETA of VERSION 2020.

You can reply via forum or PM if you so choose.

My subscription either renews or expires in May next year.

It all depends  if there will have been by then a substantial upgrade or not. In reality, I am happy as things are atm, and I do not really need anything added for now.

Of course, if there is something in a future update  I want to use, and I would have to renew my subscription again in order to get the update, I'll pay again.

As things stand today, I just might cancel my subscription before the renewal and wait for good things to happen first.

I go a step further.
I already canceled my subscription on PayPal and at the end of the month, if nothing happens, I will open a case on PayPal and get my money back, because nothing what was promised happened.
With the screenshot I will send to PayPal, I am sure they are on my side, as they always have been until now.

I don't doubt Dan's integrity and good intentions. I love the software. I paid the €50 since I couldn't locate my old 1.19 version file after an SSD upgrade which I already had received before the subscription scheme had been introduced. The only version I still had saved was 1.18.

In a way, I got my money's worth since it wasn't Dan's fault that I hadn't made a backup.

So, the next time I have to pay it will depend on features made available I really want to have or not. It has nothing to do with anything beyond that.

Neither system is the right system.
When vArranger haved some free updates Dan cannot work for this because he cannot live with this bizness plan and at the end he risk forsake vArranger.
And when people pay for updates to become calm of the futur of vA, they are to impatients because they don't understand that software need a lot of time for developpement because complexity.

Me too I'm impatient of the new version but if Dan cannot release it, it's only because it's impossible for have a software stable.

Actually, I might be wrong with my definition:

"Vaporware
In the computer industry, vaporware is a product, typically computer hardware or software, that is announced to the general public but is late or never actually manufactured nor officially cancelled. Use of the word has broadened to include products such as automobiles.Wikipedia"

The goal of the annual subscription is to select few users who likes to receive more intermediate updates during the year, for every little step rather than wait for the big step in a more long time. This also will be a little income for me to help me to continue the devs further. You can't imagine how much time I offer to the actual user base. I am sorry if I can't implement all good ideas as fast as we all want.
By the way, some good surprises are coming, keep reading this topic.

But going back to the beginning of the thread, at some point Dan must have decided to deviate from his vision what the annual subscription fee would provide: minute updates for the subscribers, and a large update at the end for the non-subscribers. Just saying....

You need to admit to yourself that Dan has beaten us - as no amount of cajoling him is going to produce the update - or information - so save yourself some stress/time.     

Indeed - the best solution I recommend is to be happy and practice/play your keyboard (or look for an alternative solution).

But can I wish everyone (particularly Dan) a Great Christmas and to have a Happy and Healthy New Year.

As we fast approach the end of another year of broken promises concerning the subject matter, it seems that vArrangers2 development is now dormant.

Based on Dan's past action/inactions, the prospect of any update soon is improbable.

I concur with Barry's comments, play and enjoy whatever instrument you have or seek other options.

As the song goes "Don't Worry, Be Happy".

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Bright, Prosperous and Safe New Year.

You need to admit to yourself that Dan has beaten us - as no amount of cajoling him is going to produce the update - or information - so save yourself some stress/time.     

Indeed - the best solution I recommend is to be happy and practice/play your keyboard (or look for an alternative solution).

But can I wish everyone (particularly Dan) a Great Christmas and to have a Happy and Healthy New Year.

My musings were in response to Woge's question.

I do enjoy myself playing using my current setup, version, etc.

As long as there is this forum, there is hope  ;)

Merry XMas to everyone!

I should clarify that it is not that I think an update will never happen - just that Dan will ignore us and do it in his own time (or not) and there is no point in keep asking.

But it has become quiet as far as the update is concerned. Slowly I have the feeling that some already have an update, and have to be quiet, so only a few complain.

I think that is not quite true, but reading the forum, we know Dan have some 'betatesters' now and then to help try out things. That's very normal.
It's not unusual the the T T T rule get active when things get tricky, Things Take Time. 🎶🍷🎶

Well, 3X paid € 50 and received 1 update, I don't think that's normal at all

I can agree that the 'annual fee' solution is not among the best or preferred, and it makes people expect major updates on an annual basis. Minor adjustments and urgent bugfixes should always be free.
When major changes and new addons is ready to release, it would bo OK to pay a 'one time fee'. Then you will know if the updates is something for your needs before deside to buy the new version.

Anyway, Merry X-mas to everybody! 🎄🎶🎄🎶

I am sorry I don't have enough time actually to answer to all suppositions written here, this does not mean they are true
I have finished one more step I was working on, to be ready for the next version, that seem's to improve things so far.
It is related to dispatching the virtual instruments to use the different cores of the CPU
Have good hopes for the next week :)

I no longer have any sympathy.     

If you just wrote a simple once sentence statement about progress every month or so (even 'no progress' would do)  then people would leave you alone and not start making things up.    You probably spend more time reading false statments than it would take to write a hundred true progress statments.    This has been said before by many of your "customers".

It's been over 2 years of hoping and waiting.

Regular updates on progress, as repeatedly requested for on past posts and as BjayG suggests, will surely allay current and potential users concerns and mistrust.

Hoping for some improvements in the New Year.

Dan , over to you.

Cheers.

Dan,
Is it worth it to you?

It seems like a mockery of your customers to want people to pay for updates and at the same time not issue any updates.
This is not a good reputation for your whole wonderful project.

If you don't have enough time, why not get someone to help you with the program?

vArranger is certainly the best software aranger, but we all know he needs to fine tune.

More than adding other features, I would focus on fixing and completing the existing ones.

With wishes of beautiful holidays and much success in the new year

your big fan
Vaclav

Vaclav, thank you for your kind words
Can you send me private email with what you consider features that need to be completed?
I need some recall from time to time :)
Yes, having some people to help me should be great. Someone to answer the tech support emails and forum manager, someone to do the marketing, someone for the sales and accounting, someone for the graphics, someone to port vArranger on iOS and Android and Mac, someone for creating pro website, someone for the sampling of real instruments, someone for creating new styles, and some to helps me on the new features that require lot of work...
Wish you all the best

ps : I am reading everything here.. good and less good comments

Dan,

It is my opinion that vArranger was originally created as a musical software arranger for your personal use and not for sale distribution.
However, it have since evolved into a very lucrative business venture on your part eg. € 349 for the software, plus € 50 to transfer licence, (€ 100 depending on upgrade) and € 50 (revolving) donation scheme for updates.

Kudos to you on your insight and musical creative skills.

Lacking then, and even now, (by your own admission,) are supporting services for effective communication, marketing and future R&Development. This don't auger well for future updates.

I am a bit confused, why can't you obtain help as needed? vArranger is now over 10 years.

Your last 2 posts seems to suggest a feeling of impatience or resentment to users highlighting valid concerns regarding the promised update.

Hope I am wrong.

No. I just prefer to work and provide good stuff rather than talk and talk and talk
vArranger is less lucrative than working in an average company
This is a choice of a passion

Dan,

Thanks for your prompt response.

Yes, it's known that you seldom talk and talk and talk re the new version.

I am not being sarcastic, but since vArranger is your passion of choice, and
re: your quote "Yes, having some people to help me should be great".

The question still remains.

"Why don't you get help with vArranger's development program?" 

I rest my case.
