Man this whole forum is A. dead and B. unbelievably toxic lol
Serious question: how so? I’ve seen a few people here post this place has become toxic, yet no one has dedcribed how.
Also, dead? Really?
I posted a really detailed reply to this but it seems to have not made it up unfortunately. I can't really be bothered typing it all up again so, never mind
Anyway, I've since had a reply back from Reason Studios explaining their rationale for Mimic being included in Reason 12 only and not being made available as a standalone RE in the shop as well. It turns out that a new RE SDK is in the works, supporting REX samples amongst other additions, and Mimic will be upgraded to support this in due course. As such, it made no sense releasing it standalone to begin with (despite its current compatibility with Reason 11) as I guess pretty soon the RE code itself won't be compatible with anything other than R12, as rack devices built with the new SDK will only work in Reason 12.
That all makes sense to me now and is fair enough. Glad the company is maintaining this new approach the CEO spoke of when he posted "But today in 2021, the world has changed and we believe being transparent about what we are working on suits both us and the community better". I feel much better about it now.
Anyway I'm glad to draw a line under all this and hope all you guys who can run Mimic enjoy it!
I'm going to have to make do with Serato Sample for now although it's no slouch and still very fun to work with.
Best wishes everyone
