VinylStudio Beta
« on: October 23, 2021, 12:32:16 PM »
UPDATE, 25Feb22:

A few issues discovered in the current shipping version, V12.5.2, and in the previous Beta have been now attended to, in particular a problem with cut-and-splice and improvements to iTunes / Music integration.  If you are affected, please install from the link that is relevant to your system.  For details, please refer to the readme file after installing.



We now have a policy of releasing new versions of VinylStudio as Beta test software for a period of time before making a formal release.  This helps root out (and fix) bugs earlier and generally works better for everyone.

If you find a bug in the Beta software, do please report it.  We can generally offer a response (in the form of a workaround or an updated Beta) much quicker than we can once the software is formally released.  You can report problems either by replying to this thread (if a forum member) or via our website:

https://www.alpinesoft.co.uk/contact_us.aspx



The latest Beta software is version 12.5.3 Beta 2.  You can get it here:

https://www.alpinesoft.co.uk/VinylStudio/VSInstall_Exe_Beta.exe (Windows)

https://www.alpinesoft.co.uk/VinylStudio/VinylStudio-Installer-Beta.pkg (Mac - Sierra and later)

https://www.alpinesoft.co.uk/VinylStudio/VinylStudio-Installer-Legacy-Beta.pkg (Mac - El Capitan and earlier)

If you are installing the Mac version, please make sure that you install the one that is compatible with your system.  If you are installing the Windows version, please let us know if you have a problem with your anti-virus and we will report it as a false positive (this sometimes tends to happen with the above file for some reason).

If you purchased from the Mac App Store, the fixes are not in that version yet.  You can however download from one of the above links and they will recognise your App Store receipt and unlock all the features.

If you are using VinylStudio Lite (as supplied with the NAD PP-4), you can also install from the above links.

We will make a formal release once we know that no other problems are going to show up.  Thank you.

I need a fully functional version (ie. not a trial version) of the legacy software for my Mac mini mid-2007. It can't be upgraded beyond OS 10.7.5. I can't find a way to buy the legacy version of VinylStudio online. Is this the way to get it...

...or should I somehow buy it?

Thanks.

Sorry for the late reply, I've just seen this.

Please just purchase a license in the usual way.  It will work fine with the legacy version:

Hot news: VinylStudio V12.5 has now been released and fully supports VoiceOver on the Mac.  It also offers a number of other detailed improvements as listed in the readme file, which you can view after you install.

VinylStudio should offer to update itself, but if not you can download it from here:

Thank you.
