Yeah I guess at the time I first read Drews comment I was hopeful that he might be able to make them see the folly of their ways but now I’m not feeling such optimism and surprised and disappointed that the issue wasn’t fixed in this new build.
I’ll stick with BFD3 since I’m hoping to start beta testing BFD4 soon, that and the fact I’m not prepared to invest a lot of time and money in superior drummer (being the nearest equivalent)
I have AD2 and Steven Slates V4 but never use them and kind of regret wasting money on them now.
I actually fired up Steven Slates Drums a few days ago and was shocked at how cheap and crap it looked alongside BFD3.
I guess you could always revert back to BFD3.3.1 and the old licence manager, at least that way you can still use something that (IMHO) is much better than the competition and probably will be for a good few years.
I just don’t get their reasoning for making owners continually have to prove that they’re valid licence holders, (assuming that’s their reasoning) It’s that kind of thing that will drive users either to another drum VST or a pirated copy of BFD3.
