I think there is a conversation to be had about how development seems to have slowed down at Fxpansion in recent years.

The "making fun" part is because you locked in on their abandoned KVR forum as some sort of major portent of doom, even though it's been like that for years and years. Getting bought by ROLI is the big event that might have shifted things a bit.

So before you start calling folks "silly fans" maybe realize your OP was pretty absurd.

To be fair, the FX forum is full of spam and unanswered posts- I posted once their about Tremor....tumbleweed.....

No one has to have a forum at all, but since Roli bought them in 2016 the development and interaction has been minimal....maybe they are working on something mind-blowing (liker a bigger GUI for Tremor :wink: )

Fair enough, and I would not have taken issue if the OP spoke about abysmal tech support etc.

I myself have had outstanding issues reported and reproduced years ago (like 4/5 years ago) with some of their products for which a forthcoming fix still hasn't been developed.

However I beta test two of their products and I know those two have development going on.

Please stay away from FXpansion and use crappy instruments instead. You’ll be one competitor less in serious music production... :hihi:

I believe every thread should devolve into character attacks and witch-burning. It really helps the discussion.

Geist 2 works just fine on the latest Windows 10. Still best in class for loop ingestion and sequencing as far as I'm concerned. And not worried about it working on future OS versions.

Not sure what kind of update OP is looking for?

I only ever saw 'KVR Audio Forums' in the first place because FXpansion had a forum under KVR. This was in 2003.
They've had their own forum for years, like a decade. I know that because... I don't remember, I must've have had a need to see it.


Also telling people they're uncritical fans for knowing an entity has their own forum is... :scared:

I will only comment positively here if fxpansion provide me with a free copy of Cypher 2. Take that fxpansion!

I like the idea of a product lasting...a hardware thing like a guitar lasts...but in the software world, the software must keep pace with the system it is running on, and I want to use products from developers who are active, and current.

And as for the "future OS versions", you just cannot be sure. I'm delighted that Geist 2 is working well for you! It simply remains unclear where this company is with all this, that is all I have been saying.

Sure jan, poke fun, I am quite lucid and I always like your posts. :hihi:

The "so called" FXpansion forum is a f**k"n ghost town, is it not? For heavens sake...wake up, jancivil !!!

KVR is the place to be! Well, isn't it? Sure it can get ****** here, but this is the best, most vibrant, super cool community for esoteric plug-in and DAW bullshit on this earth, and you ought to know that. :hihi:

Wth?

Feel free to wake up yourself OP.

FWIW Tremor is working just fine for me. Why are you singling out FXPansion? Any dev can go under or not. So far they are staying current. If you need to discuss their software then start a thread (one that isn’t a buncha doom n gloom crap.)

Cypher 2 is freaking awesome!!! I own a few of their other products though and I’d like to see more development. Especially with tremor. I don’t really see how they can leverage the MPE stuff into their other products as such. It will be amazing for all the updated synth squad stuff but, I haven’t heard much on the beta forums or anywhere else about how the buyout/ merger/ whatever will benefit or change any of their other plugins. Still, I use their stuff quite often all the time, old versions and new. I’m hoping that they’ll integrate the blocks stuff into their drum products, and add MPE modulation into their effects since Roli holds the reins now.
Don't F**K with Mr. Zero.
