There are two versions of One Man Band: One Man Band 12 and One Man Band Originals.

Originals has been released the first time in 2002 and since then a lot of features have been added until version 10. It is available for Windows only. Version 11 is completely build from scratch and version 12 is an enhancement of version 11. It is available for Windows and Macintosh. Everything is reorganised in a more logic an intuitive manner and many new functions were added.

Many functions from Originals are omited in the later versions. They were regarded to be less usefull, less needed or too difficult to use. Most users will find version 12 a better product, but so many people, so many tastes. So you might try Originals and you be the judge. Originals is not discontinued, both versions are supported in full. The choice is easy if you are a Macintosh user, only version 12 is available for Mac OS. For Windows users the choice is open, but when you buy one you will get an offer to buy the other one for only US$ 12.50. You can always switch or use both.
