Free Software Sampler & 2GB sound library!!!

 Cp21 Cms Images Indefree News

For mac & Windows!

Yellow tools is proud to release a powerful free version of Independence - the ultimate sampler workstation! Independence Free 2.0 is already based on the new Independence 2.0 version which will also be released during this months

The only downside is that it doesnt let you import files. I think they want you to get used to the software first and then upgrade to their pro models...but how can you turn down a VST with 2GB free sounds?!!

Logic Studio 8 Cracked

 Mm06 03

With Apple's Logic Studio 8 just being released, it looks like the hackers have already gotten to it. A K'ed (or cracked) release of Logic Studio is already on the net.

Logic 7 Pro was notoriously hard to crack for hackers, and I hadn't seen reports of it being done at all. Apple's strategy this time around was to get rid of the XSKey dongle, to save on costs. They probably found that the people who pirate are going to do it anyway.

New features in logic:

No XSKey
Single Window Design. (looks more like Garageband)
and something called Quick Swipe Coming (I'm sure they made that up).

Worse is that they are getting very confusing on the naming of the software packages....

They now have this in the apple store:

Logic Studio
Logic Studio - Logic Pro 8
Logic Express
Logic Express 8

How is the consumer supposed to know what to get? I'm not going to even list the upgrade versions, not to mention garage band! Thats totally insane...

Its a good thing that this software is totally excellent and will continue to be.

Will you be buying Logic Studio Pro 8 Express Upgrade Box?
