I bought 8.5 for my young son who recently moved to another city. I am super excited about the potential for us to work on music together. I think it is amazing that a giant corporation has the capacity within to use technology to create something this valuable at an affordable price. Although I’m not satisfied that the product is not complete I am at the same time glad that the launch was not delayed until perfection was achieved. I am intrigued at being involved in the process of ironing out the bugs. A big thank you to the staff at Steinberg who are committed to this project.!
