Screw Mixed in Key / Actually don't screw them

Post by gerard » Sun Dec 14, 2008 7:25 pm

What a joke, I purchased Mixedinkey a year ago a now I have to buy it again for mac. SREW them. Here the original mail:

Hi,

Thank you for writing, I am glad to answer your questions. We kindly request that you purchase a second copy for Mac OS X since it requires different licensing. We sell them separately. Our Mac OS X version is currently used by many of our top DJs such as Pete Tong and Dubfire.

Here is the link if you decide to get it: http://www.MixedInKey.com/GetStarted.aspx


Best regards,

Hi,

I switched over to Mac recently. I wanted to ask you if you could sent me a download link and code for Mac?
Thank you,

Marc

Try Rapid Evolution,

It's free and works well.
I slipped into a daze, whilst I was there I heard the most startling music, it was at once familiar and alien, reassuring and unsettling.

Seems a bit weak, but I'm pretty certain they aren't the only people that sell Mac and PC versions of software separately,

Thx for the info! I'll try that out.

@djsynchro: I'm not whining. I'm just annoyed by some practises in business. They should be happy for paying customers, because nowadays it's become real easy to get cracks.
I posted this here to inform the potential users.

it is a bit of a whine. say you owned a ford car and kept that at your house in france. would you send ford and email asking for another car to use at your house in the us, as you have already bought one from them?

has anyone given you a free product for your mac because you bought the pc version?

Sucks to hear man, I just bought a Macbook and made the offical switch to Mac not too long ago hope I don't run into any unfortunate problems like that.

8O Hardly the same mate!

If the software is exactly the same for Mac as it is for PC its a rip off that he has to buy it again for the Mac, now, if the Mac version has a few extras then fair enough! Its just another way to make some more money (which from their point of view is also fair enough :D ).

Exactly I've never even contemplated the possibility to pay twice for the SAME software.
When I bought my first POD and M-Box 5 years ago I got all the software package for MAC and PC (Amplitube, t-Racks, Pro Tools, Reason and Live lite).
So the question is not "should I get a free product for my mac", it is more
"why shouldn't I get the same product for my mac" as I only use it on one computer.
