I don't understand why sound feature is only in /Pro version. As I'm doing
electronic music/fx for about 10 years(some old czech games..now just for
hobby with my friend Rebolek in our little studio) I cannot understand what
RT thinks "proffesional" on simple playing samples? I would accept sound
feature in /Pro version only when it would have been made in "Pro" style.
For example: programmable mixer with support of basic effects like delay,
reverb, distortion...,native fourier transform support(very useful for
programming own effect processors), MP3 format support, different kind of
sound port buffering, streaming possibility etc.
I think that a lot of users who buy /Pro key looking for current sound
ability will be dissapointed..."50 bucks for replaying samples???"...and
this is not really good for RT.
Another issue is Rebol browser plug-in...Will RT sell /Pro plug-ins for
users who wants to hear sound in their lovely reblets?? Sounds like bad joke
RT: LET THE SOUND BE FREE!!!
