Goodbye Riffstation - gone after March 15th...

Recommended Posts

Just received the following email.
Riffstation is a great program and is currently free.  It'll be interesting to see what they replace it with.

Goodbye, Riffstation Pro


We are sad to announce that Riffstation Pro (Mac/PC) will no longer be available for download.

We are immensely proud of the success Riffstation has experienced and of the legion of dedicated guitar players it has seen develop along the way. We'd like to thank you for your support over the years.

We will be coming out with an exciting new product soon. In the meantime, if you are using an older version of Riffstation Pro, we strongly recommend that you update to the latest version now to future-proof your app. It's free to download until March 15, 2019.

Download

Please note that you will need Mac OS X v10.10/Windows 7 or higher to run the latest version of the application.

See you soon,

The Riffstation team

Is downloading the app enough "to future-proof", or do I have to install/register/anything sort of thing? I will be buying new PC but doubt it will happen before 15 March.

Very helpful for picking out chord progressions very quickly.  I listen to a lot of music where sheet music isn't avaialbe and have found this great when I don't have time to work things out.  A real time saver.

Sad they are getting rid of it.  Curious what the next product will be.

From what I recall with this version no registration/serial#/etc.  is required.

Riffstation is a handy tool, and well worth the price. Grab it before is is gone!

I had originally purchased the paid version, but grabbed this one as soon as it was released as freeware. No serial required!

It should continue to function, as is until ...

Even (especially) if you have the paid version, get this release. When I got this machine last year, I had issues getting my serial to take for authorization (customer support was still alive then, so got it resolved). I am assuming that this download going away also means that the registration servers will go offline. This free version is unlocked and may be the only way to re-install RiffStation in the future.

It’s an “.exe”-file. No Mac love?

Hi Fleer,

Found this link that works for a Mac version download.
Get Riffstation Mac version
Verified that the installer works - just installed it on my Mac.
