A Quote from Joe of Nemesys
I wanted to share my feelings about this acquistion. We (NemeSys founders and
have expressed all the same concerns/excitements as you.
This acquistion process did not happen over night - it has actually taken a bit
anyone anticipated. But the extended time has given a chance to feel very
with our new partners. I truely believe the \'new\' Tascam has the right vision.
smart enough to understand that the line between \'software\' and \'hardware\' is
very blurred. And if you want to succeed in either, you better have an expertise
in both. They also know that there will always be those folks that build
their sampler from software-only components, as well as those customer that
don\'t want to mess
with computer technology and just want a turn key solution - two different type
of customers, never
leave any money on the table. Don\'t expect the
Giga software only product line to ever go away. It doesn\'t make much business
We are extremely excited about the opprotunities this merger provides us. The
of this company come from an engineering background - it is what we love to do
and what we do best. The rest of the work is required to run a business. The
engineering staff as well as some the key product specialist, like Kevin, are
onboard going forward. We don\'t see this as the end of NemeSys, but the
of the Giga technology. We can now take the technology to the next level.
that was concerned about this technology being around for the next decade ..
they have one less thing to worry about in their lifetime

Actually I think it would be a good idea to just stick GigaStudio as a hardware system with maybe the user having options to add their own IDE & SCSI hard drives & CDRW\'s etc. The more I use Giga the more I think Windows & PC\'s suck and that Giga deserves better! ;-)
