Last year I paid $248 to Smartmusic for educator subscription plus 3 additional machines.
Smartmusic really hyped the iPad deployment of their software. To put it on the same machines, plus iPads would run me over $1000.
Yes, I'm disappointed. I was really hoping to use Smartmusic on the machines. Having a "checkout system" where students would take the iPads home to complete assessments could really help. If I renew I think I will have to limit it to 1-2 iPads.
I get the revenue model. Smartmusic needs to pay royalty each time we play a tune. But....frustrated.
