Please see http://www.brainspawn.com/forte-annc/ for an important announcement about the future of Forte.
Thank you all for your support of Forte over the years. I hope it has been a useful tool in your musical endeavors.
Say it ain't so! Thank you Mike for this wonderful program. I have been using it since 2006 when I purchased my Open Labs Neko, and still use it today. I wish you the best in your future!
sad news indeed. i've been thinking about moving forte to a different PC in the future, possibly a microsoft surface. will this be possible after mar 31st? transfer activation to a new PC? Find a new host and start over? ackk!!
Thx for all your effort and help with Forte Mike. GL in future endeavors!
Thank you all for the kind words. All license codes are not PC locked and you can reuse them for installations on different computers.
I am so sad to hear this. Years ago i decided to get back into the "synth" World and Forte provided a platform. It's very sad to hear this. Did you think about selling it to www.acoustica.com ?? Just a thought. Thank you for a great product and great support. !!!
Real sorry to hear! Good luck with whatever the future holds.
Wow. So sorry to hear this Mike. I gig in 5 bands, using 4 different rigs. Forte has been a workhorse for me and I sure don't relish the idea of replacing it as OS changes start to mess with its stability..
I may have to take the plunge & upgrade to Producer before it's too late. Can I still get the coupon (I have Performer 4 + Echo)?
Mike, thank you very much for excellent software and great support all these years! And all the best for your new plans!
I will continue to use Forte for a while, for sure.
Dear Mike, any plans to find a new home for the static version of the support section? For example, the WayBack Machine (see https://lifehacker.com/use-the-wayback-machine-to-save-your-favorite-sites-for-1797594914 )
That would be really great, as there's a lot of
info that may be very useful as long as there are Forte users.
Alternatively we could use a webcrawler app to download an offline version of the website.
Thanks for all your hard work, your development, your aid in the pursuit of one of the best VST players I could possibly think off.
I have been using forte so long, it's a part of my rehearsal and live set-up. Can't think of anything else so versatile.
So, I'm going to keep using Forte, until issues my occur or software develops which could limit its use.
It was worth it, and it's sad to read it's ending here.
Good luck with your future plans.
