Is anyone using this on windows 10? I still can't get the layer presets to load. It's says I don't have a license for them. Normal presets (which load the layer presets) work fine.

almost bought it until I found out that you can't make drum kits (like playing full drum kit) and play them live! How the hell is it possible in drum machine? Only one shots... ((( Its neither synth nor drum machine!
Hope they will update it soon

They have Groove Agent and HALion for drumkits, Backbone is a very capable one shot-machine.

Strange as it may sound, it might be a problem with your e-licenser software. Update it to the latest version. Assuming you are using the latest version of the plugin.

If that still does not help, you might need to delete the old soft e-licenser file (somewhere in ProgramData/Syncrosoft) and then need to get new activation codes. There is an FAQ on how to do that, so please make sure you understand that before deleting the soft e-licenser file.

Saying this based on my experience with Padshop 2 and Retrologue 2. I am also on Windows 10. I am using the soft e-licenser, no dongle.

All this might not be needed, but just in case nothing is helping, you can try these things. :)

Yeah, but it is still quite expensive.

I love my Groove Agent!! Best discovery since sliced bread .. (coming from a Maschine guy.)

Backbone looks like a clone of a UVI type product. I guess the market is 808 beat makers.

quite right - it looks like they're testing the sales with the 30% first , a while ago Iconica was 50% off.
I dare to say - by the end of 2021 many vst will be 50% off - never gets any better then that.
I would not be surprised if Absolute 5 included some kind of light versions of the big releases
Backbone ( One,LE or stg...). In the end it's all about sales ( low nr of vst sales - better % Sale - sooner). Being patient is a virtue..
