Well 3.0 is now posted on the Emu website - available for download purchase, or order (if you want a CD), and has a 7-day free trial with the dl version. My impressions from running it on my system - absolutely fantastic!! This is a very major, very cool upgrade for Paris - from graphic EQs (with draggable curves), drag and drop channel settings (EQ, etc), channel/fader/aux/EQ groups a nice integrated audio editor, MIDI, OMF support, etc, etc. and a very sweet looking new GUI. These are just the basics of 3.0. I for one see this as a major leap forward for Paris in the DAW world.
