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.

Good news on the 2020 version.  I look forward to it. I'm sure many users of the pirate version can't stand it anymore and just go ahead but the version from Dan.

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.

Lylo,
Thanks for the info.
Don't understand why Dan couldn't have done likewise,..... just plain and simple courtesy. 
Again, appreciate your feedback.

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.
