@ Xenos. Thank you kindly for your honesty, and yes I agree they are a bit thin/limited however still better than our first generation, and hopefully a transition to attract better programmers to build out something special for us in the near.
I actually went through the programmer/developer directory here and have already reached out to a good dozen or so people but most are on their own journey, don't share our big picture (we've moved 70K units with no trial, there is a lot of $ to be made for the right fit programmer wise so please take this seriously if anyone is reading that is able to take this on), or yeah they simply want to include their stuff in our install as is which I don't like the idea of or haven't seen anything worthy yet.
We've had ppl say it reminds them of FL - I've been spending a lot of time with ALL the top 10 or so DAW's re interface, workflow, feature sets, etc. so don't mind if there is familiarity within the app as most DAW's do have that raw set of features that you can't really mess with or position too differently but we'll still have our own spin on it.
@Julio, Cheers we're still in the early stages of naming/rebranding and still open to all ideas so thanks for that.
@Tricky-Loops, currently I don't have a VSTi resource for developers so I'm hoping by the time we launch we'll have some eyeballs on this and see our vision/opportunity to let their skills shine and be monetized properly. I know a badass synth is going to take a while, and my dev is going to be including effects natively but how many and how deep they go we don't know yet.
It's going to be released in Alpha, if we're lucky just before xmas, with just a few features, and then motor on weekly releases and we'll have a home support forum, full access to the programmers publicly, and by then I'm hoping talent is booked and working. If not we may indeed call on existing tools and setup some type of cross promo OR we'll simply be reselling others VST(i)'s that are a good fit/branded similarly, need a good push in the market..
Thank you again for the feedback, and if you guys know any of these developers personally please feel free to give them a nudge. I know I may be met with laughter or they won't take it seriously due to our past but please show them anyway as it might change their career/journey in a great direction. I also think simply rebranding something that exists out there and adding a few things to differentiate it slightly would be a great placeholder while we work on something raw so keep that in mind if you're reading and interested and have a great portfolio of tools you've built already.
