Hoping that "pacman -Syu" wouldn't put me back in demo mode!

Due to their new licensing policy, you get updates for 1 year after purchase, and this cycle is different depending on when you purchased it. So when you decide not to continue paying for the next year, just lock yourself into specific PKGBUILD version, and that's it.

I've used this to install bitwig and it works fabulously (after installing jack2), so I'm thinking about buying a license. I was curious about what would happen when bitwig 3 comes out: hoping that "pacman -Syu" wouldn't put me back in demo mode! It looks like we should maybe expect a major version upgrade to require a different package or some other sort of manual intervention? Thanks for making this package!

@liam1895 - "loading jack package: jack_get_version_string" - I had the same issue and fixed it with `sudo pacman -S jack2`.

`jack_get_version_string` seems to be present only in Jack2 (

It's working OK for me on two installs with jack2 (plus cadence-git).

Is there a missing package? When installing and trying to use jack audio in bitwig interface I keep getting the error "error loading jack package: jack_get_version_string"

Created bitwig-studio-legacy for those who are unhappy with licensing model of 2.0.

Given the new licensing model would a bitwig-studio-legacy (or similar) package for 1.3.15 be a useful thing?

Greetings, I think that there should be two different packages for Bitwig 1.3 and Bitwig 2.0, since those with a license for Bitwig 1.3 who did not buy the upgrade can only use the demo version of Bitwig 2, so they will likely not want to upgrade.

Thanks for pushing the package for Bitwig 2.0 so quickly!

Created an automated script for incrementing this package version. Tell me if something breaks.
