Hello. I have been waiting for this UPGRADE for a long time because it is the best program.
I want to know when the UpGrade is coming please.November 17, 2022 at 4:22 am #1497FortepianoParticipant
Dal sito ci informano che la versione 6.0 sarà disponibile a fine autunno 2022December 23, 2022 at 7:53 am #1589Mario2Participant
I think Encore 6 will be available in January.
For now, it’s Christmas and then it’s also New Year. The release will be delayed a bit.
I hope it won’t be delayed for years…
Merry Christmas everyone!February 24, 2023 at 9:41 pm #1730RaymondZParticipant
We believe that it has been an abuse and a lack of respect to say that the upgrade of this software was for the fall of 2022, then the beginning of 2023 and we are already in March and there is no hope. It is better to say that they went bankrupt and are going to discontinue it and not to say that we wait…February 25, 2023 at 2:32 pm #1731Mike HalloranParticipant
A reality check is due here.
The last paid upgrade upgrade to Encore (version 5) was 2007 under the previous ownership(s). Passport Designs/GVOX/Passport Designs under the leadership of Richard Hotchkiss is out of business and gone, gone, gone.
“We believe that (bla, bla, bla…)”
It was another company with no affiliation to the current one that let Encore go to hell.
Passport Music is less than a year old and now owns the IP for Encore. It is now helmed by Don Williams who wrote Encore 1 a long time ago. Encore 6 will be Passport Music’s first release.
How many of us have a financial stake in the current product? None of us do. We have old licenses for a product that has been abandoned by the companies that sold it to us.
The only thing we have from Passport Music is a promise that there will be a new version that we can buy so we can open our old files and create new ones. It is late and we all know that but not one of us has paid for this new version from this new company. I want it as much as anyone else does.
There is no justification for your outrage unless you cross paths with Richard Hotchkiss, then I’ll be glad to hold your coat.February 25, 2023 at 3:10 pm #1732Mario2Participant
That is the realistic view of things. I can only agree with Mike.
I think it’s a good offer that Don is making us by holding out the prospect of a new Encore version. He and his company are under no obligation to us.
So we have no other choice but to wait for a new version of Encore and MasterTracks.
I also see insults out of annoyance because of the not kept release as out of place hereFebruary 28, 2023 at 3:23 am #1740Andre BaeckParticipant
I agree with you, Mike and Mario.
I understand that a new version needs time to upgrade or develop, and at first I was really surprized of the first annoucement with only a 6-months delay.
Now, it would be nice if Don would give us a periodic (quarterly?) update, with a realistic outlook for availability (or beta-testing).March 8, 2023 at 4:57 pm #1750Mike HalloranParticipant
On the Overture site, Don has posted that Encore 6 is taking longer than expected.March 8, 2023 at 11:32 pm #1754DrGeorgeMiklasParticipant
I hope we get Encore 6 soon…
