Rumor has it that Avid also wanted to buy Steinberg a year or two ago when Pinnacle wanted to get rid of it but Yamaha beat them to it (thankfully so if I may add).

I don't know. The buyout happened a while ago, and the Wizoosounds website is still up. Also, you can buy most of their sounds at mi7libraries.com if you want, like the Stingray bass and others.

One thing is for sure though. If there is something there you just HAVE to have, get it now because it may not be there forever. And there are some good things there.

By the way, if you want the lite version of their Stingray for free, go sign up at mi7.com and you will get a ten Euros free in download credit at mi7libraries.com and that is enough to buy the lite bass, or some other sample set.

Oh man...that would be too weird! Nuendo and Pro Tools under the same aegis! :-o

Mind you, if anyone had told me a year ago that Adobe would swallow up Macromedia, I'd tell them they're nuts...

This kind of swallowing is not good. Usually, all kinds of different swallowings are very good, though :D.

Joking aside, if we end up with only three or four corporations, that's plain bad. Best quality products are mostly coming from the smaller firms, even "one-man-band" firms. Hate that merger things...

Cheers!

This interview with Peter Gorges - ex MD Wizoo, now Head of Digidesign Advanced Instrument Research Group - gives some background about the Digidesign takeover, Wizoo business continuity etc. The interview is in German though. http://amazona.de/index.php?page=26&fil ... le_id=1354

Well, I just wiped my C drive and installed Windows 7 64 bit. Now I have a Wizoo Latigo dvd that is absolutely worthless. It's impossible to authorize and activate it now.

Way to go Wizoo......or Digidesign......or whomever the hell squashed this piece of software I blew money on.

Now they are Air Music Technolgy. You may want to check with those guys...they seem nice, and helpful enough from my past experience with them. There might even be a couple of staff members left over from the old Wizoo days. Wouldn't hurt to ask

It's not worthless, there is such a thing called 'system requirements'. Install 32 bit Windows and host and use as much as you like.

He cannot authorise it because Wizoo doesn't exist any more. Otherwise he would be able to use it in a 32-bit host or with a VST bridge plugin. It's not necessary to install 32-bit Windows.

This really is the threadomancy winner anywhere. :) I can't believe it's been so long since Wizoo disappeared! Wizooverb is still a pretty great hybrid IR/algo reverb. I still remember it being on sale for $99 or so, probably lower.

I've blown a few licences doing similar things and pissed some money down the drain, i know the feeling. However i never got angry at the developers, as it was mostly user-error.
