  1. This is really a sign of times… some things I like, some things I don’t. I like being able to access my daw anywhere on anything… web based software is definetly a growing thing… but the subscription and “unlock premium synthesizer” or just use the limited one…idk that sounds really narrow on what you get out of the box. It’s priced well. Strangely enough… I think that one day people, like collecting music” will acknowledge all material digital this as commodities that are payed for to access. Everyone basically have a portable screen/touch monitor that they access their virtual computer on, this computer is cloud based and houses all the subscribed apps you buy… music daws, Adobe software, Microsoft, etc… the world of physical things and ownership is going away…

  2. I wonder if software will someday work like streaming services– where you pay a monthly fee and whenever you use software, it will pay THAT developer.

    The industry may embrace these changes– subscription-based software, free-feature-stripped-demo-versions, web-based apps, etc. And they are fine, in-and-of-themselves.

    I still hope that a brave group of developers will continue to release software the traditional way.

  3. Web browser based apps are not something I use, there basically running on top of a 2nd OS, that is HTML5. This causes a negative impact on processor resources. A don’t want my DAW to have to run the browser and then the DAW.

    If that wasn’t bad enough, App Rental makes this DAW dead in the water before it’s released.

    I’ll pass.

  4. I like the idea of browser-based applications for noodling around. There are a lot of fun shader programming environments for visuals. I don’t think of DAWs in the same vein.

    The big positive is that a free, browser-based option makes it accessible to people that can’t afford computers or paid software; someone could play with this their school computer lab or at the library.

  5. for a long time this was like my dream haha. i love chromeOS, it’s my favorite OS since everything I do that isn’t music related is done within Chrome already.

    still, I don’t know if I have the drive to bother trying a web based DAW anytime soon. i’m so set in my ways… i am really glad to see this is finally starting to become a reality though.
