the distribution of MB STUDIO updates continues through an annual subscription to a small cost that is used to guarantee the continuous development of MB STUDIO and all the products connected to it. MB STUDIO for Windows has reached 19 years of development and only on 2 occasions (switching from MB STUDIO 7 to MB STUDIO 8 and switching from MB STUDIO 8.xx to MB STUDIO 8.5) a minimum upgrade cost has been requested. From today to receive the updates, it is necessary to subscribe an annual plan that has different costs depending on the version of MB STUDIO to be updated and the number of licenses contained in the USB key. If you do not subscribe to the update plan you can continue to use MB STUDIO 8.61 without any limit.
Updates are included for free for 12 months after the purchase of a new MB STUDIO license or a Video plugin or an upgrade from HOME to LITE or from LITE to PRO

Sooner or later you may need to move MB STUDIO to a new, more powerful computer or clone it to a second backup computer. In both cases we see the operations to be performed:
MB STUDIO manages the automatic TIME ANNOUNCEMENT. The announcement, in its simplest form, consists of 2 concatenated files: the first file announces the hours and the second announces the minutes. So, to cover an entire day you must prerecord 24 speech files each a different time (for example: "it's 9", "it's 10", "it's 11") and then 59 files announcing the minutes (example: "oh 1", "oh 2", etc).
Files can be of any type .wav, .wma. ogg ,. mp3 and must be called hoursxx (for example hours09.mp3) and minutesxx (for example minutes01.mp3).
ATTENTION: those who want it can also record a single file that announces hours and minutes, that can be useful for example at the hour in point (at minute 00) to record an entry with a different pitch, for example "It is eleven in the morning! ". When you want MB STUDIO to use a single file, save it in the time folder with the syntax hoursxxxx; for example at midday MB STUDIO will look for the file hours1200.mp3, if it does not find it then it will first look for the file hours12.mp3 and then the file minutes00.
