At least I hoped you had a seahorse as pet... :lol:
Don't be silly, seahorses can't read.

Do all the synth masters have rabbits, or just you and Jexus?

Probably just me. I don't have time for a dog.
I got him years ago and he just lives on my porch.
I through him some food and water every few days.
And once in a while a carrot if I'm in a good mood.
Very low maintenance.
Every once in a while I hear him screaming because a fox or raccoon
has chewed their way into the porch to is trying to eat him.
I've had to go down there with a stick in the middle of the night a few times.
It's amazing he is still alive.

For anyone who found the existing instructions terrifying or disturbing I rewrote the instructions page.
https://www.fathomsynth.com/avx

It now includes only a simple list of things you need to do.

I made it so my pet rabbit could understand it.
It's easier but i still don't understand why you give two choices, but at the end there only one thing to do : buy the upgrade !
It's still make no sense to me (but i am french and not a pet rabbit :D )

IMHO, the easiest way for me is to give the AVX to all upgrade buyer
You can't buy or use an upgrade if you have not already purchased Fathom Pro or did i miss a condition to have the AVX ?
So, as a loyal customer, i need to write an email to buy an upgrade, it's weird and some customer don't write English.

The other possibility to have AVX is to buy the Fathom Vector.
And again, i need to write an email to benefit a reduced price as a loyal customer :o
How can you think it's a simple process is beyond me !

I hope, you find my critics constructive because i just want to support and help a nice dev and keep Fathom alive :love:

Just paste the supplied text in the subject field.
Writing more below that is not required.

It's great that there is a way to qualify for a discount.
But it's not a magic trick. A little infrastructure is required.

It is only available to users who purchased Fathom Pro before the Vector release on 8/202020
I'd be interested to know what your rabbit makes of that date ;)

You can't cuz AVX ain't for Mac buyers. So I don't need to email, which is easiester!

I thought about making Pro AVX part of pro that is just enabled by the license. That would obviously make things much easier for everyone including myself. But the problem is that is a security risk.

Also, Pro AVX is only for existing customers so I don't want it to be part of the release going forward.

I had to get some sleep. Many of you are waiting patiently for an email response so I will get through all those emails today.

Ok, i did not understand that before, it means you will have to maintain and release 3 versions of Fathom, you give yourself a lot of useless work

So if I have had Fathom Pro for some time, want to upgrade to pro 3.0, but not Vector - Do I just buy the upgrade and then send an E-Mail about the free AVX update? Or do I E-Mail first?

Yep, buy upgrade, then send email about the AVX build of Pro.

LOL, From Rabbit down to Turtle, wow that is simple.

Yes, buy the upgrade first and then send me an email to get the member only release.

I'm back to answering the emails now. So if you are waiting I will get to your email shortly.

I think that 3.0 is a homerun hit! At least as far as CPU optimization is concerned. Nice! Running in full quality now!

Well done! :clap:
