TOPIC: S-Gear v2.90 is now available

S-Gear v2.90 is now available 1 year 8 months ago #20947

Hi Mike,

great work!!. After a Win10 Upgrade I am really enjoying the S-Gear 2.9. Especially the bigger size and the preset management. And come on guys who want this for free, Scuffham is not a big company and this sounds like a lot of work for Mike and team to achieve a proper basis for future development already coming with some really helpful features especially with a higher resolution screen.. Only supporting them ensures that future development can continue and this little gem stays compatible and hopefully gets improvements in the future.

S-Gear is still the amp sim that I enjoy playing the most because of the feeling

Hi all,

just want to say that I really enjoy the upgrade and like to encourage everybody who might hesitate or does not see the big value for that small fee. Actually I just paid the reasonable upgrade fee after the trial period and don´t complain that I bought my first license just a couple of weeks before January 2018.

The scalable GUI is really helpful and nice.

First I did not see the benefits of the improved Preset management system but after trying I enjoy the ease and comfort. (It might be even more useful for those using MIDI and for future upgrades.)
"Single Click Load" is great if you want to browse the Presets via the arrow keys!

The Redwirez Remastered IRs are nice, the one I use in my favorite Preset sounds much fatter to my ears.
Looking forward to activate even one more machine on the go, it´s great to have a maximum of three licenses.

And thanks again to Mike, who helped me solve an installation issue (caused by my dual monitor configuration) by answering within a couple of hours. Great support.

One thing money can´t buy is the inspiration and fun you get by playing your amps and software. With S-Gear I play way more often than I did before (using Tubeamps, Attenuators, Di into Logic).
It´s just so easy to use the Standalone App with Logic, iTunes, BiaB and get a sounds that blend well with any playback or jamtrack (thanks to the useful no-nonsense presets, the delay and reverb).

My favorite playing style needs dynamic response, a fine gain structure and the touch and feel of an amp at breakup. (My favorite is The Duke, by the way.) S-Gear delivers that IMHO better than any software I tried.

A last word about the 29$ to those hesitating or complaining: just consider the upgrade fee as some kind of crowd funding as well. Remember, were talking about a small company, a brave guy who has the skills, endurance and dedication to develop excellent tools for us guitarists and gives great support within a couple of hours.
I like (and more importantly daily enjoy) the App as is but want to support Mike to compensate for his work now in order to enable him to continue.

So Mike, thanks a lot and keep on keeping´on.

I'm pretty sure I'm going to get the update (at least to get rid of that annoying display bug in cubase, hope that's fixed), but I can't say I am happy about iLok being replaced by some machine base system. It seems better than the old one, what with three activations, but I'd like a bit more information.
Does this mean I can install S-Gear on three different machines (if only I use them, of course). What if for some reason one activation gets lost (hardware defect). Do I get a replacement for that? Can I easily activate and deactivate licenses on a machine?

Thanks

Sure, the activation is done with the license key. You must not lose that of course ... . It was the same with 2.7 anyways, iLok was just an option, not mandatory. Maybe more convenient for users who had multiple software packages unlocked by just one key.

Are there any new amps on this upgrade? If not ,since I am still using Mojave,i doubt if the upgrade would make any difference.

No new amps. My favorite upgrade feature is the scalable UI; its much easier on my retinas when using S-Gear on my big old iMac Retina.
