Purchase and Register Join Together

New Users...

The unregistered version of Join Together will operate in Demo Mode during which all of its features are available and unrestricted. However, in Demo Mode the volume-level of the exported file will be sharply reduced after a few minutes and through the duration of the file.

A registration code for Join Together is $5.00.

After your payment is received you will be emailed a registration code and instructions which will remove Join Together's volume-level restriction. You'll also enable me to continue working on Join Together and make it work better for you!
