I contacted Benjamin yesterday via email and he told me that

...the projects are not abandoned, just paused
He mentioned that he'll start working on his own projects again next year.

So I guess we can hope for some future updates after all.

Playtime is THE plugin that could make me choose Reaper and leave Ableton Live (so expensive, and so incomplete, with poor upgrades). Anyway I must admit there are things to fix. First of all, I cannot leave Playtime vst in the plugin folder because Sibelius always crashes.
Then, I could not manage to simply copu and past clips, like I do it in Ableton (I always have to drag and drop from Media explorer - I cannot copy from arrange view or even from session view). I didn't find follow actions... If this program is still upgraded, it's certain I buy it... And I feel 20€ is really cheap for what it offers!
Congratulations

You should be able to use a dedicated VST folder somewhere and make that known just to Reaper.

Even with Ableton, you have to make a choice: session or arrangement view. Once you commit to playing patterns (session view) then you need a bunch of variation on the pattern to make the track interesting. But once you have a bunch of variations on the same pattern you are eventually better off with a linear timeline.

If you are playing live it is nice to have the flexibility to change patterns or augment patterns on the fly.

Round and round we go, having to make a binary decision, when really you want both.
Some linear tracks and some patterns

How is this project going? I'm thinking about making a purchase but I haven't figured this out yet. Are you guys happy with this plugin? Can anybody please describe to me how they are using it?

I'm having a few issues trying to understand. I'm currently reading the manual for the second time and I'm still struggling. I guess the original writer's mother language is not English.
