I loved Xphraze so much, loved Vanguard (I still have an image of it as my background screen) and I love Avenger. I guess it´s a combination of design and sound. Would I love also Nexus? mmmm don´t think so.gentleclockdivider wrote: ↑Tue Dec 15, 2020 10:17 amHe started tone 2 and indeed changed his namemduke123 wrote: ↑Tue Dec 15, 2020 10:05 amMichael 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.v1o wrote: ↑Wed Mar 28, 2018 12:56 amAren’t REFX responsible for coding Vengeance Avenger?hardwired wrote:He's very much alive.

~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.
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
You can see Manuel and Michael talking and playing in this video 14:12
Iirc he coded , vanguard , plasticz
VST, AU, AAX, etc. plug-in Virtual Instruments discussion

I'm sure he will be back, once he sorts the website issues. See the home grown sounds forum

Arguru really died driving some years ago. He created DiscoDSP some years before his departure with J.R. Reales, now his job is continued by Oskari Tammelin, a well known friend of Arguru.
