Hello to everyone, I think its time to move on to a new Laptop before my current one dies, but the new ones already come with WIndows 8 and Im uncertain if my current virtual arranger setup will work fine.

My current setup is One Man Band Originals 10.3.0 , Loop Be1 Monitor to send the Midi signals to Kontakt 4 and Kontakt 5 , Cantabile Performer 2.0 , all controlled by a Korg X50 synthethizer.

So if any of you have had any experience upgrading to Win 8 Id appreciate your help.

Another question , I have created and tweaked a lot of styles on One Man Band , will this styles play on a real Yamaha arranger or could be converted for a Korg PA?

Thanks you!
My current gear: Fantom XA, Juno Di, Korg X50 . I have used: Korg N264 , X5D , Trinity Plus.

Hello Daniel,

I can't answer your questions but I would advise you to make sure get the latest version of Windows which I think is currently version 8.1 (unless Microsoft have updated again). The original Windows 8 had several faults but I understand most of them have now been corrected through the 8.1 version so it is likely your setup will work with it.

Good luck!
