The Download edition is the cheapest. It offers all features that a user can get with a boxed edition, as well as most of the additional features (soundbanks) that are available in the CD version. The USB version is an alternative to the boxed or the CD version. With the USB version, you can install Keyscape on multiple computer systems. It is the easiest way to use Keyscape on many different computers, as many soundcard manufacturers have added the Keyscape drivers to their drivers database. You may also use the USB version to install Keyscape on a smartphone or tablet. On this device, Keyscape will run very fast and with a low CPU load. This applies to any device that supports USB connectivity. However, the USB version is not suitable for continuous playback, as you can only install and play Keyscape for 10 to 15 minutes at a time. You can use it in offline mode while your device is connected to your computer, so you can listen to the samples and the synth during a longer walk or a bus ride or during any other downtime. This is a great alternative to a dedicated USB device.
Why did you create these different product editions for Keyscape? The initial edition of Keyscape was a box edition. Since then we have also released a CD version. The CD version provides the full Keyscape experience: an extensive collection of samples, the user interface, the install guide, and much more. Only the user who decides to purchase a box edition misses out on these additional features. The CD version is our most popular product and it is frequently used in educational settings.
What are the differences between the Boxed, Download and USB versions? The Boxed version is only the product's physical box with the CD in it, the USB version is the actual CD with the product inside. The Download edition is the product's install disc, which includes both the product and the install guide. Because the software is in many cases also included in the CD, the Download edition is often the cheapest.
Do the additional install installations include the soundbanks, too? Yes, if you choose the Download version, the additional install includes the soundbanks that you can find in the CD, plus the additional soundbanks in the DVD. If you use the USB version, you have to download all the additional soundbanks from our site.
Yes! Keyscape is available in a Download Edition that includes vehicles, instruments and sounds. The download version is perfect for users who want the functionality of the full Keyscape system, but don't have the need for additional instruments. The download version includes all the same features as the boxed version, and it allows you to use Keyscape as long as you want, without a time limit.
The main part of Keyscape consists of the instruments. There are a total of three instruments in the Keyscape library: drums, brass, and piano. The piano instrument is one of the most complex instruments to create, due to its multiple parameters and modal properties. It is covered in the Piano manual. 827ec27edc
