FAQ

What computer do I need to run the program?

You need any computer (desktop, laptop, tablet) that runs Windows 7 or newer. The resources needed by Groovyband Live! are so low, that if the computer can boot Windows than it can certainly run our software.

Realistically, for production, you need a tablet or a laptop with touch screen. Preferably with a 12" screen or wider. You can learn more here.

Android and iPad tablets are NOT supported.

Does Groovyband Live! produce the sound as well as the realtime arrangement?

No. Groovyband Live! produces only a stream of midi data. You need a compatible sound generator to actually produce sound.

What "sound module" do I need?

Groovyband Live! currently requires a mid-top level Yamaha XG capable sound generator.

This in practice means a PSR S770 or better (Tyros 3 or better, Genos).

What are the demo limitations?
  1. You cannot save your customizations, when you quit the program they are lost.
  2. You can use a maximum of 4 insert DSPs at once (as in the Standard version).
  3. After some minutes (10รท15) you are forced to quit. But you can restart the program immediately.

Nothing else.

The demo comes bundled with fully functional 620 styles (all those delivered with the Platinum version) and can be used forever.

Is the program copy protected?

Yes, it can only be installed on one computer. We deliver to the purchaser a license file that will unlock the software only on that computer.

The details are described here.

The demo can be freely installed and run on as many computers as needed, for as long as needed (= forever).

What happens if I change my computer? Will I lose the ability to run the software I purchased?

If you change your computer every 3 years, or less often, we issue a new license file for the new computer. No questions asked.

If you change it more frequently, we will evaluate every specific case. If you do not give us a reason to doubt your good faith, we generally trust the customer.

Read our license replacement policy.

Why doesn't the program cost as a smartphone app?

Usually you get what you pay for.
