It was up a while back when I was having render problems so it might just be temporary. I don't use it as much as I should.

Still seems to be down :(
Kind of a shame this appears abandoned, was interested in buying at some point in the future.

It's pretty appalling that the developer's disappeared, after such a short amount of time. Shows very little respect for those that purchased the synth.

My Trueno frequently goes glitchy and unusable, has the audio disappear, or crashes my DAW. It's great when it works but the usability is a bit of a nightmare. I had my first one replaced and the second still does this, though slightly less. Dodgy hardware or buggy software... or both? Either way, there's not much comeback now it seems.

I feel a bit sorry for the developer because he did such a great job with it and has probably lost a substantial amount of money. But no, let's make it all about you instead. Yes, every now and then it goes a bit crazy but you just unplug it and plug it back in and it's fine. It's rare enough that it wouldn't worry me using it on stage. It's certainly not so bad that I'd even bother contacting the dev over.

Now the site says that it's a security risk.

I feel a bit sorry for the dev and also any customers who have non-optimal units. My sympathy can spread to both sides of the transaction.

That's just an issue with the SSL Certificate (for HTTPS), it doesn't mean trying to visit the site will somehow put your system at risk.
I still hope it's just a temporary outage, as I would have assumed a discontinuation of the product would have been announced beforehand to give people time to download drivers etc.

Was discontinued months back, I had one and it was basically useless, it had nothing but issues and ran so hot it was actually scary, luckily I got a refund from G4M who confirmed they are now discontinued so couldnt send a replacement, after getting no reply from the developer, he replied about three months later, I never bothered trying to source another.
If your plugin is a C++ creation, please don't say so.
If it is, pop round Marcos, he has just bought you a Mac to port it.

Mine runs hot but not overly so. It is analogue after all, so it will always run hot. I've never had much trouble with mine, it's been great.
