Wow, I got to check out that Autosampler plugin!

Checking the page now. Hm... I'm on Mainstage 3.0, do I really paying $29.99 to get 3.1? Oh well, I'll leave it for now and do the upgrade next time I need to auto sample an old synth. :) Only that feature is well worth $29.99

I have to correct myself: MainStage 3.1 really is a free update for those who have bought 3.0.

I don't know why I can't upgrade but there seems to be an issue with the Apple Store not having registered my 3.0 license; could have something to do with the required extra Apple IDs these days for using iPhone etc; a while back I had to set up a new Apple ID that was email based.

Anyway, I'm looking for a way to register my MainsStage 3.0 license. Can't find that option in the AppStore or my MBPs system pref's. Any suggestions?
