Which developers are you missing these days?

I wouldn't go so far to say Ohm Force is dead - but I really miss them making new plugins.
Another developer I really liked was Divine Machine.

I wonder what happened to ArtsAcoustic. I quite liked their reverb when i demo'd it, but, never dared to buy it, because i always found it to be too expensive, and missed any kind of development behind it. Apart from that, i always found that it's a shame that the guy behind Audjoo didn't further developed Helix, or made a Helix v2. A synth with great potential, but, discontinued, as it seems. Cakewalk Z3TA could also be great, if they ever decided to make a version 3 (which i highly doubt at the moment).

First ! Camel Audio (on Windows). I'd love to see a Synth 2 from Ichiro Toda. Can't think of anybody else at the moment......

Camel Audio is a biggie. Yeah I really miss them being outside the Logic eco system.

How could I forget Bernie ? :dog: No one was as generous to me as he was. :(

However if I'm not mistaken the person who wrote the code for Magma and Garbage is still alive. I agree those plugins do need some bug fix love.....

Mastrcode Music - makers of T-Force Alpha. Really wish they'd come back or someone else could take on Alpha and continue developing it.

Yes, Bornemark made some really good plugins.

I actually used to work with him way back in the days of Atari. I think the problem was that his code developer left for other projects and Sven is mainly a idea guy/recording musician.

Whoever wants music instead of noise, joy instead of pleasure, soul instead of gold, creative work instead of business, passion instead of foolery, finds no home in this trivial world of ours.
