Please you got to let me know
Should I stay or should I go?
Trying to figure out if I should give the new InMusic version of BFD another try. I tried it out a long time back, but for whatever reason (I can’t recall) I quickly returned to the pre InMusic version I was using (184.108.40.206) and there I have remained.
I read a bit of these forums every day, and I must say it’s not something that fills your heart with hope. As I see it I have 3 choices,
- Stay as I am, and keep on keeping on.
- Give it another try and see how it goes.
- Move on to SD3. (again)
Number 1, well that’s comfortable and safe, until something happens to make me move forward, hardware failure etc, something causing to make me change OS etc. It could happen, it’s a possibility, I backups of all my hard drives etc, and supposedly can recover to different hardware. But apart from some catastrophe I think I would have a good few years as is. I’ve stopped Windows 10 from updating itself, I’m still on Windows 10 v 1909, and I can stay there for the foreseeable future.
Number 2, well I really don’t want to waste my time if it’s going to give me grief. I’d like it just to work, that would be nice, not bothered about any 3 monthly check in or whatever it is, but I have something like 54 or 55 expansions, I don’t want to loose any of them, and I don’t want to be spending endless hours trying to get them all to work, don’t want to be chasing companies around trying to get new serial numbers, this all should already be done by InMusic or whoever, so as the consumer just does his/her thing and Bob’s your Uncle.
Number 3, I purchased SD3 on release to check it out. The UI, the looks are certainly nice, it has some nice features. But when it comes to the main, most important part, the sound, to me it is inferior to BFD3, so after a month or 2 I sold it. But if wasn’t that bad, it just wasn’t as good as BFD3 IMO,. I could certainly work with it, and after some time using it exclusively I’d could forget about the things that now aren’t as good as BFD to me. Oh, but buying something twice, I’d feel like hitting my head against a post, but that to I would get over.
Is it safe to jump in the InMusic water without any hassle or loss?
