I was on the verge of acquiring VE Pro, and then decided to test MIR SE - seeing as it also can host 3rd party vsti's now.. and as I feared, I liked what MIR can do for me quite a bit. [Y]
I'm at a bit of a loss as to how to proceed though - the bulk of my composing work takes place in Finale. Because of how Finale functions, the way VE Pro works (by loading itself as a vst in Finale, but at the same time functioning and hosting the libraries externally) is ideal - it circumvents certain limitations of Finale, but at the same time keeps its playback happy. At present MIR has to be run externally and connected by midi - this does not work very well with Finale, it is a nightmare I had to deal with in the past and do not wish to return to. From what I understand, MIR Pro would be the obvious solution to this as it would combine the best of both of the existing applications.. is this how it will work? Will MIR Pro load itself as a vst while still operating externally? Will there be an "SE Pro" version as well?
And the question that concerns me most right now (and I know this has been brought up in this thread before, but there was no answer), if I were to buy VE Pro so that I can work now, will MIR Pro render this purchase redundant in only a few weeks (or months)?
