I have been ready to test C12 with the Trial version, mainly for the new ‘MIDI Remote’ feature. Problem is that I can’t do so : here is what is displayed in MySteinberg account, ‘Steinberg Licensing products’ pane :
Actually, I never had the time to install it and test it thoroughly. But yes, it is ‘expired’…
So, as I’m no longer allowed to test C12, few questions :
- I have read here and there a while ago that installing C12 on a system with C11.0.41 and eLicenser dongle already installed could break the existing licence - Actually, that’s why I postponed the trial installation after its download, while I was looking at clear instruction about how to install it. the Has this been reliably solved ?
- I also have read that there are few VSTis bundled in C11 which are no longer present in C12. Do the existing already installed will be kept and able to work with C12 ?
- Finally, and this is mainly why I am considering the upgrade, does the new MIDI Remote feature cope RELIABLY with NRPN controller messages, unlike the previous Generic Remote implementation ?
And when I talk about NRPN messages, I mean these (from an endless knob of my Akai MPD32, set at MSB : 000 and LSB : 052 address) :
C99 -> 0 C98 -> 52 C96 -> 1 (incr) / C97 -> 1 (decr) C99 -> 127 C98 -> 127
which are compliant with the MIDI 1.0 standard and recognized as such by the Steinberg MIDI monitor used as a MIDI insert.
Thanks for any precision…
