Re: trial

like imitone is still in beta phase, you cannot have a trial , demo mode for the moment.

Pre purchase is the only way

Re: trial

Thanks, but what is the difference between the 25 dollars and 60? I haven't Garage Band, what software can I use to record it?
Finally, do you know when the last version will be updated, and if I have bought the beta...can I pay just the difference of price?

Re: trial

about prime,

If you buy the beta, you buy the software V1, meaning once it is released you got it, no need to pay extra money.

Re: trial

I will probably make a trial at some point -- but probably not until the software is closer to finished.  :/  Bear in mind it's not "for sale", yet -- just for pre-order.  imitone should hit 1.0 sometime in spring of this year, or early summer at the latest.  (I'll be announcing a date soon, maybe?)

I can say that for 95% of people, the cheaper version does everything they'll realistically need -- the $60 version will add lots of features but most of them require a solid understanding of MIDI and audio systems (especially routing and controllers) to use effectively.

Re: trial

Ok (sorry for my english, before of all). I can understand that the cheaper version of 25 dollars is enough to work with my voice (so i can use it many times...) while the other of 60 dollars needs understanding of audio systems (but there are other simple programmes can I download to use it?)

Re: trial

Check out the "cheap and free music apps" topic I've just posted under "Toolbox" -- NanoStudio and LMMS are good free options for music making, and both can be used with imitone.

If imitone doesn't make you happy, E-mail support@imitone.com for a refund.

As someone considering imitone, seeing this post from 4 years ago talking about am anticipated 1.0 version - and the fact that it STILL has not landed doesn’t fill me with confidence.

I really don’t understand the lack of trial.

Especially when there is a free online wav-midi converter available.

I get that this app is supposedly “real time” and that’s a USP but without a trial people
Will find it difficult to stump up the (not inconsiderable) price in any great numbers.

I’d love to see this succeed, but fear that you’re alienating a great source of potential income.

Good luck

Re: trial

Yes, I was overzealous in thinking I would complete this technology in such a short time.  I like to think it's better to go over schedule and keep my promises, though.  In the meantime, my beta users can work with what I've built so far.  I encourage you to experiment with other tools.

We may put out a trial before imitone 1.0 is complete, but don't be surprised if it's not what you expect.
