Congratulations for the new release :tu:

I'm a little bit disappointed when I saw the screenshots though. It gives me the impression that it is the same design and workflow as Dune 2 but with more features.

I need to demo it first, but most likely it is has less priority for me to upgrade.

Well, it's kinda like "DUNE 2.8" in my opinion.

It sounds better, it has a WT editor and some new filters (OTOH, if D2 was at this level of sound quality, I wouldn't have sold the license; oh well, what can you do).

But ... it still feels like it's still DUNE 2 and not something new (as was anticipated).

Steep upgrade price in my opinion when it doesnt seem like a full 3.0....

Well, you said it yourself. Seems like an update (in all honesty, a killer update, but an update nonetheless) and not a new version.

I couldn't find the upgrade price anywhere, is it stated somewhere?

Edit: Found it when logging into my account. It's not the end of the world, but $59 would have made the choice easier :)

Second edit: Looking great though, so I might pull the trigger soon.

"nks approved" LOL

sorry, the idea that nks is a standard of some kind will always make me laugh. approved for the worst control surface on the market? gee, that's good to know.

should remove that from your blurb tbh
companies shouldn't support or give credence to nks, noobs wasting their hard-earned money on this dead-end excuse for a platform is the only thing it can lead to.
NKS-ready means it went through NI's approval process. They check out all patches carefully, test all versions, the controller template, etc. This is not just important for NKS, but it improves the overall stability since it means extra stress testing. So it is very useful overall :)

Is the copy protection C/R now like The Legend?
And if it’s C/R now, am I able to upgrade from my Dune 2 NFR and be able to sell my Dune 3 license?

Yes it has more than 500 new patches, taking advantage of all the new features in DUNE 3. The factory library from DUNE 2 is included as well, so the total library size is now slightly more than 1000 patches.

Why no drag and drop mod matrix? A no go in 2018. Love dune 2 but i always hated the mod matrix. Man.... why not check hive. Avenger etc. Even old school rob papen has it...
A lazy update not 3.0 version. Sorry for negativity but i expected more.

It appears the arp has no direct editing, that you have to create your MIDI file in your DAW, or elsewhere, and import the MIDI file into Dune 3.

And $79 is a good price for it considering all the work and new features.
