    First of all, Lazer, you've got it wrong. You DONT HAVE TO PAY TO UPGRADE TO VERSION 6!!!!! You already get it FREE if you paid for V5. Your license is good until Ver 7. And Versions 5 and 6 will continue to operate even after V7 is out.

    I've got Quicken 2005 on my computer. Still keeps my checkbook up to date. I have computers in the basement with Win 95 and 98 on them. MS didn't offer me upgrades to ME, XP, 2000, 7 or 10.

    I've got 24 versions of Reaper on my external hard drive. The company could go up in smoke, and I'll still have those 24 backup versions. The license is stored in a text file on that drive and a backup drive. In 10 years, it will probably still be working, but I might not. (Think they'll let me set up a recording studio in the rec center at the retirement home?)

    Nothing lasts forever. What's the big beef about?

    My experience has not been a smooth one. I used Reaper with my Fantom USB direct before I got the USB interface. Never made much progress with that 6i6. Shoulda used it as a free trial until I found out what was wrong. I bought it, more to pick a brand to support. Choose a side kinda thing. It was that or Protools.

    I don't feel I got my money's worth , I guess. Somebody had said if the key was from 2015 I should be good. My Key file says 2017. No worries, I will use it as a trial version until I get the problems worked out. Frustrating that's all.

    Or reinstall the old and use that. I can do that too, your right.

    lol I pay for .5 updates and major updates. Thankfully cubase always seems to add enough new features to make the bump worth it.

    It's one of the reasons I recommend Reaper to people though.

    I started with Reaper in 2010 using V3.

    I had to renew when I upgraded to V5 in 2015, so that was four years between having to pay again. Not bad value in my view.

    An another thing! I have Reaper, paid for and I can have it on as many computers as I like. I paid 3 times as much for Sampliutude ProX 3 and get just 2 extra 'goes'.

    That's even more rich, because it essentially already is "free". Even if he didn't want to repay $60, he could just hit "OK" on the nag screen and continue using it exactly like he already is without consequence.

    Right, so why did I purchase it in the first place. Its a nag screen. What is free, offers the same.

    It was $60 for 2-3 years. Granted, I did not need to wait 3-4 seconds for the button to click. What else?
