The following points are written with tongue partially in cheek. But only partially.
- There will be 450,000 new users within the next week and they will flood the forum with questions that have nothing to do with those of us who paid.
- If people can create piano solos, organ solos, lead sheets, guitar charts, etc., etc., at no cost, what happens to the need for notation that costs money? (I mean I need to write for symphony orchestra and chorus, so I HAVE to pay, but I don’t know very many other people outside of Hollywood who need the whole ball of wax.) I think Steinberg may have just shot themselves in their pocketbook’s foot.
- Yes, I know this takes the place (for some people) of free trials of Pro or Elements, and is sort of an advertisement for the full package, but I can imagine thousands of complaints when somebody finishes a lead sheet and then can’t re-arrange the look of it in an Engraving mode. Just think how many complaints there have been from Elements owners about this very issue. Now multiply by a factor of several thousand.
Yikes, and wow, and congratulations, I think. Maybe.
