Riffworks Line6 version vs Riffworks T4
by johnpicton on 2010-03-11 07:42:58

Is there any advantage to using the Line6 version of Riffworks over and above Riffworks T4 (free download from Sonoma).

The T4 version has save and riffcast capabilities (and even a free instant drummer download as well) all for free. As I see it I can only get saving capabilities with the Line6 version if I upgrade to Riffworks standard (and I do realise that the Riffworks standard version has more capabilities that the T4 version - namely things like 24 layers and using rx2 files and rewire).

So which should I use, what would I be loosing by no using the Line6 version (unregistered)?

TIA

Here is a feature comparison chart for RiffWorks T4, RiffWorks Line 6 Edition, and RiffWorks Standard.

http://www.sonomawireworks.com/riffworksfeatures-Line6.php

RiffWorks Line 6 Edition has been discontinued, so it is recommended that those users crossgrade to RiffWorks Standard.

RiffWorks Standard has a many additional features over RiffWorks T4, and is currently being improved.

Some of the advantages RiffWorks Standard has over RiffWorks T4:

  • Record 24 Layers Per Riff Plus Drums, instead of just 4 with RiffWorksT4
  • Supports 32-bit Recording and Mixing, instead of just 16-bit with RiffWorks T4
  • Export Riffs to .wav for use in other DAWs
  • REX player
  • ReWire support
  • Includes the Sonoma">http://www.sonomawireworks.com/pr-riffworks-2.5.php">Sonoma 7 VST Plugin (value $49) to use in other DAWs
  • Includes 9 InstantDrummer sessions (value $9.99/ea.).
  • Higher screen resolution option

Hi Michelle

thanks for answering. I did know the differences between T4 and Standard, I just wondered about the difference between Line6 version and T4. I appriciate that you say Line6 has been discontinued. I can still download it from Line6 Monkey but it has save disabled (which is fair enough in my books). I have tried T4 and find that it works exactly the same as my Line6 (save disabled) version but with the added bonus of being able to save. I just wanted to know if I was missing out on something by using T4 (IE does the Line6 version offer anything over and above T4) it would appear not.

Thanks again....

Right you are asking what the difference is between RiffWorks Line 6 Edition v2.2.2 in demo mode and RiffWorks T4 v2.5. I'd say the main benefit is that RiffWorks T4 saves, it is a more up to date version with bug fixes, and it is not keyed to one ASIO device at a time.

Cheers,

Michelle
