No that is for any future new members to do, and then you'll never hear from him/her again :)

+1 for Divine Machine. I'd like to be able to use the stuff I purchased.
Steve Duda is famously still going, he was part of that crew.
Just checked my invoice for Lucifer which is 'signed' with his name from the @devine-machine.com addy.
Amazon: why not use an alternative

~14 years ago Michael Kleps developed Xphraze, QuadraSID, Vanguard etc. Xphraze was a masterpiece. Just imagine what this guy would have developed these days. He had outstanding creativity. I know reFX still updates Nexus a Rompler but unfortunately no new procucts for ages.
He's very much alive. Name is now Michael Hartmann. Guess he got married and took her last name or something. Can't remember how that went.

Anyway, with how little that's been done since others have left Refx, maybe Michael Kleps isn't the coder many thought and perhaps rather an employer of coders. Not sure either way
Aren’t REFX responsible for coding Vengeance Avenger?
Michael Hartmann is the developer of Nexus 3 and 2 so he is still alive and kicking. Avenger has been developed by a company called Keilwerth Audio together with Manuel Schleis as sound designer. Manuel is also the main sound designer for Nexus.

You can see Manuel and Michael talking and playing in this video 14:12

There was a DAW that came out in beta back in 2011/2012

It was a 3D DAW, you could move all around the sequencer in these sort of lines, and set up little modules that were animated. I cant remember the name, but it went silent a while back. That would have been cool

AudioGL?

I heard he went on to work for Native Instruments. He appears in the credits of Form and maybe also some other stuff, IIRC.

YES, I knew the name ended in GL. Damn man, that would have been a fun DAW if he would have kept going.

Yeah I started a thread about it cause I found it funny the way I figured it out...he said he effectively found the limits of reaktor in creating FORM...the sampler was the next module up in the GL roadmap people were psyched for...would have been amazing if FORM would have been GL modules
He did indiegogo cause at the time kickstarter wouldn't do non american companies...shame really...what he achieved as a side hobby with GL is brilliant IMO...he did some audio dsp for some other folks as well...tough industry...gotta eat
Music had a one night stand with sound design.....And the condom broke

Of course we do. I miss the developer of This Plugin. Haven't heard from him in ages.
