Since my name was brought up, let me throw in my 2 cents.FathomSynth wrote: ↑Thu May 23, 2019 9:55 amDH, That's actually a brilliant idea!
I'll look into it.
Not sure if I ever mentioned this but it is always comforting to see the original names pop up in this thread, as long as the first generation keep showing up , Scrubbing Monkeys, RPH, TJ, Distorted Horizon, oops that's you sorry, etc, (as well as strong supporters like Ambietica) then I know we are still on track.
I think I even saw the man himself, Wagtunes, drop by recently, he was the very first poster in this thread two years go!
Vertion, My thoughts exactly for the product lines. But don't worry I will keep people informed.
Honestly, I was just in a complaining mood the last two weeks, but I'm over it. The deeper I get into the CPU redesign the more this other business stuff will get resolved and become less an issue. For the last year I was doing only Fathom demo's for the web site, and recently I went back to using some of my favorite other synths for a few songs of my own, and now I'm constantly having the experience ... "what? It can't do this? You're kidding me!, Isn't that just a basic necessity?" And then I realize, "oh right, I forgot, only Fathom can do that."
My favorite quote from any user was Scalawag's ...
"Is this the final synth to rule them all?"
The reason I have little to say in these threads anymore is because I bought the product (2 years ago in 2017) and since there are no new products to buy and Fathom is great, there's really not much to say.
So I absolutely agree, make more stuff. FX especially. Your loyal customers will purchase IF the stuff's as good as Fathom is. But with just one product, well, you know. Human nature being what it is, we don't constantly talk about synths we purchased X years ago. We talk about the new things. That's just the way it is. Yes, there are exceptions. But most people just use the stuff they bought and that's it. Otherwise, with the over 125 VSTs I own, I'd be in threads 24/7. Some people think I post too much as it is.
Bottom Line: Give me something else to buy and I'll buy it.
Good luck with whatever you have planned. I'll be watching.
