Adobe too (all their applications) have been cross-platform for ages. Which planet did you came from?

i have used lots of the software mentioned here. I started on music-x and bars and pipes. then i played with IT2 for a bit. Got into soundfonts and massiva. I bought and still own mboom. Muzys is my favourite and i will probably use it for as long as it still loads, and then virtualise it when it doesn't.

For me it is EnergyXT 1.4. I still use it, especially the VST plugin for easy routing and chaining, but it still feels unfinished. Newer EnergyXT just doesn't have the same appeal for me.
What is the story behind energyxt, why is it nobody uses the new version? I noticed they had an iOS app which seems discontinued now.

I had CMuzys from a Computer Music cover disc. I learnt production following the tutorials they had in their magazine. I never understood why they just suddenly abandoned their sequencer like that. In any case Computer Music don’t have a DAW anymore for their readership. It was fun when all their tutorials focused mainly on one DAW.

Mixman (1999ish), it was very basic and I don't miss any of its functionality, but it was fun to use.

The dev, Jorgen Aase was brilliant, and we all bought Energyxt 1.

He then announced version 2, and it was significantly different to 1. Lots of people got very upset and packed there bags. Jorgen threw in the towel and has vanished into the Norway air.

If anyone bumps into him can they ask him to come back please.

I actually like energyxt 2 and still have it installed and use it for quick stuff. Believe it or not, 1.4 will still work on Windows 10. Version 3 was a bit unstable so most seem to stay on 2.7.

Fin.
