It will be interesting to see these products return again. I appreciate the devs full time job meant he was unable to give these the support they deserved. Hopefully, the prospective buyer will be one that's familiar to us at KVR and able to give these synths a new lease of life.

Can anyone still get access to the installers for Enzyme? I can't seem to access a link? Haven't installed it on my new machine, and should probably get the Windows and OSX installers.

The time has come, the site is almost down, the pages have been removed :(
I wish the best to the HSS team!

Oh and I was never resent the installers. Only realised I didn't have them the day they were scheduled to shut up shop too.

Can anyone hook me up with the latest Windows/OSX installers?

Do you have your original emails still? Try the links, they might still be working. Some parts of the site still seem to be up and running, but they took down the main index page it seems.
You will still need your keys to activate, which should've been emailed to you when you bought them.

Nah, links are dead it seems. Or at least the ones I have access to. Admittedly I should have been more careful with the files when I purchased it. But it's still a pretty irritating situation.

Got the license file sitting on my desktop, and the demo versions which were freely available, and can't seemingly be licensed. I even have an old copy of the Enzyme player installer (but only for Windows, using OSX currently).

I got the email too. Last time i interacted with them they said there were future plans for Enzyme fixing compatibility issues. I guess these won't happen now.

I believe the devs joined Apple as part of the CamelAudio team so maybe this will resurface in some form as part of Logic in the future.
Fcking Apple!

Yeah John Proctor of HSS was part of Camel Audio. According to UK companies house, he resigned as HSS Director on January 7th 2015 (same time as Camel Shutdown).

I believe the devs were kidnapped by Apple

I still haven't been able to track down a Mac installer.

I wonder what lead to the final shuttering of Humanoid. Was it just that, without the ability to actively work on Humanoid products, the cost of keeping the company on life support was too much. Or was it, the more interesting possibility, of Apple intending on using some scanned synthesis stuff in Alchemy etc.
