I purchased a licence a long time ago and I cannot remember whether it is a basic or premium.The version of VL70m editor I have is 5.0.5b2. Is this the newest version? How can I check what licence I have?.

O boy...Respiro is consuming a lot of my time..sorry for the late reply..

you can check the license by clicking on the top of the main window where you see " IMOXPLUS" appearing when VL-Wizard starts...

5.0.5b3 is the latest..

A basic license key starts with BA_ . and premium with PR_

Not to distract too much, but I bought the basic license, and I wonder if it might be possible to 'upgrade' in the future to the premium license for the difference in price between the two? :)

good question...

sorry, Upgrading from a Basic to a premium is not yet supported. But I could look into that if wanted.
You would need to pay a bit more than just the difference. This to cover for administration and tax overhead I have to handle.

I might included license upgrade possibilities when rewriting the VL-Wizard Editor (not yet planned)
Question: Is there a specific need or feature you are missing in your basic version that you think is available in the premium?

The main differences are
Basic
- no major upgrades
- lower priority for support
- no export to midi file
- no program change support for voice selection in library

Premium
- includes major upgrades (no planned at this moment)
- gets serious discount when VL-Wizard will be rewritten into another platform (so, not MAX/MSP anymore)
- priority support
- advice during sounddesign (via skype / facetime sessions)
- all features

Now that I released Respiro the demand on my time is much higher. Therefore the distinction between basic and premium becomes bigger in terms of support.

hope this clarifies

Nothing at the moment, though I may come up with something later!

I am still exploring the PLG100-VL card and the basics of your editor. I very much like the extreme tweakability of all the parameters of the VL patches.

I have spend hours editing the VL and still discover new things...once you understand the VL eco system then you can make great sounds... the challenge however is the effort to tune a newly developed sound...

Also, it takes a learning curve of at least 1 week actively tweaking before getting something nice out of the VL...

I have plenty of newly developed VL sounds that I hope to tune one day and burn on an eprom....some are sounds that I never believed VL could produce...

So, take time to get on top of the VL editing and you will be rewarded...but be aware, the VL is not giving its secrets that easy....many times it is the combination of 2 to 3 parameters interacting that produces great results...

The art is to get the model into selfoscillation and carefully use the damping parameters to keep it under control.
Also, the best strategy is to try out till you catch the timbre you like and then (only then) start thinking about tuning...
