Any version (Win, OSX, 32/64, etc) will be avaliable for free for anyone that owns a version that includes it. Example, if you purchase 1.0 (just Win) and in 2.0 OSX is avaliable and it's a free update, you will get it for free. If 2.0 has an small fee, like 5€, this fee is for all users, and you should pay that fee, then you will have 2.0 for Win/OSX.

Rajah, glad you like it :) I'm enjoying a lot from Nora making music aswell :)

Introductory offer: 34€, final price, 49€. (it will last 15 days after its release).

Why use arpeggiators & step sequencers at all?

Those are two very different questions though. Why use an arpeggiator? Because you can play chords in real-time and have the notes split out rhythmically. Piano rolls don't do that. Why use a step sequencer in a DAW? Indeed that is a good question because a DAW piano roll is a sequencer so it doesn't make much sense unless someone wants a retro gui or there are tools for generating patterns not available in the DAW sequencer.
This is a block of text that can be added to posts you make. There is a 255 character limit. Once I have something clever, I will certainly fill it in.

You can "play" a step sequencer like Thesys just like an arpeggiator.

Nora is a "Midi effect". What Nora offers you is an editor like any host Piano Roll, but it isn't a piano roll. The idea is, you place some chords in your host, and then you process them with Nora and it's piano roll-like editor. Nora's main editor has X groups that contains Y notes each. Imagine you have just 1 group with 3 notes. If you place in your host some 3 notes chords, they will chop in the same way Nora editor is. Upper and bottom extra groups works in the same way, but pitching up/down an octave. Once you test it, you will understand the concept for sure :tu:

So, basically, it's like 7Aliens' Catanya plugin but with the freedom a of a piano roll (instead of their fixed scheme)?

2nd Q: it looks like one can store own presets that eventually show up in the left browser?

All in all, it looks well done. Congrats.

I'm going to tell you a funny history: During Nora development, while I was focusing on interface related stuff, my partner was coding the anti copy protection. Then one day, Nora wasn't working on my computer I asked him and his answer was: "Sorry you need a key file, and since I'm on holidays I cannot give it to you atm". So I, the main coder, was without being able to use it in my music around one week. That was unfair! :lol:

Silly question: can NORA output midi by itself? I mean, do you need allways to play midi in order to make it sequence?

My question comes becouse I would love to paint or record the sequences and make them run in programs like audiomulch that lacks pianoroll.
