-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hey, with most companies on KVR it says "official support forum" but with FXpansion it says "archived support forum".

Has anyone noticed this?

This is somewhat uncool, maybe even quite unacceptable? And I am just gonna put the question straight out here, to KVR, it is a question that I feel many of us have lingering...

Let me put it this way...I recently bought a license for Geist 2. I don't even want to register it, because I have no confidence that it will ever be updated, or will run on any future versions of Windows! At this point I feel I paid for a sample library, and not a plug-in.

What is the actual status of this increasingly uninvolved company? Why can't they even sustain a eff'n forum on the old KVR? Who are they? There has been a thread about Cypher 2 lately, and so what? Sure, I get that it is some sort of synthesizer, man it could be fabulously tremendous...super cool, but...where is the product?

Hey, I would have bought all of their products, sure...if only I felt that they were a real functioning company. But they cannot even sustain a basic forum on the KVR? At some point it is like...Wake up!

Sorry, just, truly sorry if I sound upset...I wanna hear from FXpansion users...heck, I would love to hear from the company too!

FYI, KVR is not the entire world....

That is they still have their own support system and God forbid their own active forum...

Hey, maybe that's not quite the right way to ask - passing judgment together with the question before you have received an answer that would justify you doing so.
If you really don't know anything about fxpansion - why are you so upset?
Other companies also don't have forums on kvr. So what?

What is known for sure is that they were bought by ROLI, there were readjustments that delayed their release schedule, Cypher 2 is very close to official release.

I would guess that BTS they are working on bugfixing for Geist and their other major products. Which is really what they should be doing. So rest assured, Geist is NOT just a sample library. Go ahead and use it.

Rob Papen closed his KVR forum and he's doing just fine, as another example.

Either there's some serious Poe's Loe going on in the OP or :scared:

EDIT: How did I type Poe's Loe? Dagnabbit, it's staying.

Alright, guys...sure I can sense you are making fun of me, and that is fine. So what???

Maybe I even expected it. Actually, I did. I said in my post I would buy all their products...but who noticed that? :dog:

I like this f**k*n company, I want them to do well, get it? :hihi:
But they should be much, much more forthcoming, solid and lucid...hey, if not on KVR, then somewhere.

Scrutinize them, if you care about them, don't just be silly fans!

To be fair, the FX forum is full of spam and unanswered posts- I posted once their about Tremor....tumbleweed.....

No one has to have a forum at all, but since Roli bought them in 2016 the development and interaction has been minimal....maybe they are working on something mind-blowing (liker a bigger GUI for Tremor :wink: )
