Camel Audio is terribly missed.

I hope someone buys out Apple and shuts them down for good.

already mentioned a bunch of times, but:

hg fortune
m-rgt
hollow sun.

those guys all made really interesting and unique stuff. wish there were more devs like that willing to make quality niche software.

VAZ may be dead, but you’ve not got rid of me yet! I now occasionally dabble with utilities to work with hardware samplers.

I hear from Dennis (Spin audio, post that 2C audio) every Christmas, and Antti H is an FB friend and visible in sampler circles.

Camel Audio
Not exactly dead, but dead to me.

Hopefully Apple eventually screws them over the same way that CA screwed all their loyal PC customers.
My main tools: Kontakt 5, Omnisphere 2, Iris 1 (not interested in V2), Padshop Pro, Samplemodeling SWAM and Zebra 2.

Elemental Audio

To add to the missing in action developers and another company with an interesting/rocky history.

Who else remembers after Roger Nicolls bought them out and then the website got 'hijacked' by a disgruntled party and released a free Inspektor, I think it was.

ArtsAcoustic. I own their reverb and compressors but sadly i can't install the 64bit plugins because the installers don't work.
Support doesn't respond.

Koblo Vibra 9000. Beautiful GUI and IIRC it was better sounding than the most.

Whitenoise Still hoping for a 64bit update on ZeroVector.

I guess we have a different idea of what it means to be loyal :shrug:
