Sorry if I've overlooked the answer, but did we ever get a definitive answer as to whether the performance tool will work in Logic 8 without an XS key?

Thanks,

apple confirmed a few weeks ago the performance tool will work in the next version of logic (which is now Cool - it looks like activation or authorization will no longer be required,

That's what I needed to know, Christian. Thanks for the speedy reply! I'm installing my update tomorrow.

To me, Performance Tool 1.1 does not work properly in Logic 8.

It misses to highlight the active matrix cell in Alternation mode, and one has to manually select the mode  (Alternation, Staccato, Legato) from the EXS/VSL menu.

 A fix would be appreciated.

Is a bugfix planned?

Thank you.

Futhermore, the Perf Tool plays here and there wrong notes (or in the wrong octave).

Terrible.

Is there any news on this? Will you be updating the performance tool to work with Logic 8 soon? Legatos are all over the place!

Apple actually assured us that the Performance Tool will work as before in Logic 8.

Since it obviously doesn´t, we are currently working on a solution.

Please accept our apologies, but this is beyond our influence!

Best, Marnix

i can confirm the announcement by marnix that performance legato instruments do work in logic 8. i don´t know about the repetition or alternation modes since i don´t use them - but for legato instruments there is no need to open the actual performance tool anyhow - they simply work.

PerfTool works in Logic 8, yes. The interface doesn't, you can't edit any parameter.

Thanks for the info! I'm glad to hear the tools still work, and I hope the interfaces get fixed; I do occasionally use the alternation tool. :-)

write to apple's support or software architect's department - it seems they didn't even take notice of the respective reports.

i'm out now and will suggest to simply discontinue the support for the performance tool on logic 8 - it's absolutely tiring.

Pardon? You did a special offer on the "old" Symphonic Cube till last september 15th, and I bought it for 1.422 EUR (or 2.047 USD): not exactly a small expense, to me.

Let's get serious, please.

I really hope you are joking CM! If not, perhaps you can offer free crossgrades to other formats, so we may continue to use the tools we paid for? I would absolutely hate to loose EXS support of VSL performance instruments! I truly appreciate you doing everything in your power to keep EXS support! Please dont give up!!

you might either need to continue using logic 7 or avoid editing exs performance instruments in logic 8.

(AFAIK the problem remains only for alternation and repetition, the legato seems to be fixed)

no guarantee can be given everything works with any upcoming software or operating system version if changes happen outside of our sphere of influence.
