You can see where it was forked on github.
This whole thing with licenses is frustrating as a user. We like using iOS for music, and like the work both parties have done.
The original licenses people were using allowed for commercial use, I don’t know if a lot of people misunderstood the license they were using or what.
The fact that this got released and I see a lot of the license files all got switched to GPL almost as to block out anyone else from doing it again either out of spite or they are just now realizing they messed up with licensing.
The art is a whole different thing, and that can be swapped out but me as a new user to VCV and miRack its not leaving some of the developers in a favorable light. If Apple had a platform where the software could still be GPL I wonder if people would still be treating it the same way. VCV itself has its own store and sells closed source plugins so its not exactly some open source pioneer, they are now profiting off it themselves and having to go through a web site and reload the app over and over again isn’t a good user experience.
I don’t have a problem paying a small fee to compensate someone for doing all the work porting to iOS which the posts from VCV made it sound like they didn’t want to do or it wasn’t feasible. Hopefully if miRack gets IAP going some of the devs will allow their code to be published on both.
Sorry for the long post. I have just had to justify using miRack to people after they give me a lecture on it and I have already paid for the thing so its too late anyway. I have been using open source software for decades so I don’t see not telling someone out of courtesy a big slight. If you don’t want someone to use the code that way, pick a different license from the start.
