I m currently working with a friend in collaborative songs online , he is a bass player , I m using the rack to make some generative sequences and I ll share to him a record of the patch and he will give back to me bass lines and so on , everything is ok at this point.
but I was thinking what if I want to share to him the patch?
it contain couple of premium plugins that is the Spine of the patch, and it will be broken if my friend try to open since he is not a rack user
then I can give to him my rack account or simply give to him the plugging in a zip , but I m sure both are not legal (or at least the second one)
could be possible for this cases , enable a kind of “Demos” for the missing modules with all the features disables but capable to produce and process the sound?
I know it is not an option for mostly of the software for music, is not there this kind of demo for the DAWs and vsts (demos for DAWs or vsts allway add noises and shit) but the VCV Rack is not a common DAW
I will give to you a sample, In my work , I use to share my files with a lots of people, I receive a file, I work with it, using some times payed and free plugging and then I give the file to other person, they will have not the plugging that I have but the functionality added are not losing since it depend of the software, not of the plugging
perhaps add modules with locked knobs that not allow reconnect and unable to be added directly from the menu ?
want do you think?
