MuLab 5 has 3 levels:
- MuLab Free
- MuLab XT (Extended)
- MuLab UL (Ultimate)
All MuLab levels are fully functional, but the difference is that when you cross one of the limits of MuLab Free / MuLab XT, then you enter demo mode and you'll regularly hear a soft noise.
For example: You can use ReWire in MuLab Free, but only in demo mode i.e. the soft noise will be there from time to time.
So MuLab Free has a double function: It's a free nice little musical tool and it's a demo version to try out all features of MuLab.
This table shows the level limits:
| ||MuLab Free||MuLab XT||MuLab UL|
|Num Audio Inputs/Outputs||2/2||2/2||32/32|
|Num MIDI Inputs/Outputs||1/1||1/1||8/8|
|Num Tracks Per Composition||4||8||Unlimited|
|Can Use Multi MIDI Channels Per Track||No||No||Yes|
|Num VST Plug-Ins Per Session||8||16||Unlimited|
|Can Use ReWire Devices||No||No||Yes|
|Can Mixdown In 32 bit||No||No||Yes|
|Price||0 EUR||29 EUR||69 EUR|
MuLab XT and MuLab UL User Licenses can be purchased in the
MuLab Free and MuLab XT have certain limits, cfr the table above.
If you go beyond one of these limits, you're entering demo mode and so you'll regularly hear a soft noise.
It may take a bit of time before you start hearing this noise. Similarly, when returning inside the limits, it may take a bit of time before the demo noise disappears.
Of course we hope you'll soon step to a higher MuLab level thereby giving yourself more creative space and at the same time support the further development of MuLab! We can't R&D without an income! (Food, office, computers, time, ...)
- The "Num Audio Inputs/Outputs" is defined by the actual in/out pin usage in the audio input/output modules in the Session MUX.
- The "Num MIDI Inputs/Outputs" is defined by the MIDI Setup.
