5.2 should arrive soon, but can't confirm yet.
Would you like to tell us, when this "soon" is? ;)
He just said he can't confirm, yet :smack:

The DiscoDsp site (which is still temporarily closed) now says "I'm sick and unable to attend. Thanks for your understanding."

Doesn't look like very good news. :?

This is really sad news. I had a feeling it had to be health related. George wouldn't just shut up shop like that without saying anything.

Apparently, as a one man operation, there's nobody to take over for him.

I wonder if he'd consider selling to somebody.

Smells like burnout really. Mental issues are counted as "illnesses" too.

Anyways, what ever the sickness is, I too hope that he gets well soon <3

Please, do not do that. You have zero evidence to suggest anything like that. It's really just libel.

How long has his site been down? A month? That might tell something about the severity of his illness.
If discoDSP is his full-time job, it has to be something serious because judging from his frequent sales his business probably wasn't doing too well. So you don't close shop just because of a broken leg or something like that.

Reminds me of the WOK guy, but I think I have seen him a couple of times on KVR meanwhile.

Yeah, WOK posted just today with a new plugin he's working on. :tu:

A similar thing happened to Imperfect Samples. I had bought a sample set and got and error while trying to download. I contacted them and got no reply...for several weeks. Then, just as soon as I was getting ready to ask for a refund through PP, I got a message apologising for not replying but he had been suddenly hospitalised and had no one to check on his business. I replied and wish him a speedy recovery.

I remember reading all the below about discoDSP disappearing. I didn't have any discoDSP synths so I was just watching like a fly on the wall. But since he's back, I've purchased a couple synths, namely Discovery Pro and Vertigo. They have an "old school" flavour to them in terms of UI but they do sound very nice, modern.

I am demoing Corona because its on 40% off sale. Seems really nice. That same old school UI but the sound is definitely there. The osc approach is really unique offering some sounds difficult or impossible to get with other synths.

What do you guys think of Corona? It's on sale for 39€ which feels like a good price! :phones:

I love Corona. The osc section is very flexible.
