They still take money for their product, because it's well worth the money and if you don't want to buy it you can use the demo or buy some other DAW. I can't see why this should be a problem?
E.g. because features like wav tracks were "kind of" announced. Also with the the introduction of 2.8 or 3.0 there was talk that this version(s) would lay the ground for later things like wav tracks. I'm granted updates till 4.0 and I wait for features like this for a long time now. I feel tricked and I'm really disappointed about it.
but i'm glad they don't just make a lot of half arsed updates that doesn't work.
Reaper provides monthly updates and always worked for me rock solid. It's possible to deliver frequent updates without breaking things.
Just because the Renoise team does not involve themselves in the vast amounts of post an threads like this, doesn't mean they don't care. Why would they bother to answer the same questions over and over again?
Totally untrue ! Problem is, that for certain questions they don't give ANY answers. They could answer those questions with simple news blogs, faqs whatever. But they don't. And thus we have threads like this.
You can't buy a cheap featureless car and expect that it's fully upgraded with rear view cameras, parking sensors, air condition and GPS in the next free upgrade.
Also wrong. I need a car without fancy stuff. I need bread and butter features,without rear view cameras and that stuff. But they added it ! All I wanted was more bread and butter, but they gave me the vanguard menu ;-).
What's the point in expressing all this negativity towards something that has given us so much and that they have never been greedy about it? All this negativity does not work as fuel towards the project, i would rather belive it has an opposite effect. For how long can someone cope with all this negativity? Why would they bother doing an effort when all you immature kids just complaint anyway?
The silence and absence of the Renoise team causes negativity. I'm on board here since 2008 and also have contributed some things. In contrast to the Renoise team I never took or earned a cent for my work. But they just ignore many volunteer people like me. And how comes you know my age ? I probably could be your father, mate !
Please stop complaining and take it for what it is and not for what you want it to be. It's meaningless use of energy.
There's a reason why people complain. It doesn't help to play things down again and again. The communication method of the Renoise team (radio silence) is not satisfying. And as long as they stubbornly follow this route, there will be problems and complains and not "happy clappy". Why is that so difficult to understand ? I
