I just wanted to drop by and introduce myself. I\'m Jeff Klopmeyer, chief marketing weasel of TASCAM, and the new guy in charge of communications regarding the GigaSampler and GigaStudio software lines and sound libraries.
As some of you may know, we\'re very big on forum-based support at TASCAM. Sometime toward the end of next week, we\'ll be setting up the Giga forum on www.tascam.com, so feel free to come on by with any support issues, comments, questions or whatever.
Working with the NemeSys gang during the transition of being purchased by TASCAM has been great. They\'re all smart, cool people. We certainly intend on retaining the same cool vibe, but being able to push the Giga line forward with the added support and distribution that TASCAM can bring to the table.
Anyway...just a brief \"hello\" that I\'m posting to a variety of newsgroups and forums. Come on over to check out the TASCAM forums at some point, and we look forward to working with you in the future.
Chadwick: No, the NemeSys guys are sticking with Giga development. We have plenty of other guys worrying about future workstation development. Go Giga Go!
Scarbee: Right now, as you know, we\'re continuing to use the NemeSys page. We\'ll be migrating some content over to the tascam.com site over the next few weeks, but it\'ll be a hybrid of info for a short while. Looking forward to getting more great stuff from you, though!
Munsee: Glad to hear you feel this way. To paraphrase a \'70s rock song, \"You ain\'t seen nothin\' yet.\"
I figured that it was probably time to introduce myself to all of you. My name is Dave, and I am a product specialist at TASCAM. Some of you who have visited the TASCAM user groups may have seen me there. I am the one who will be moderating the Giga forum when it opens in the next week or two.
I have lived in Los Angeles for 15 years where I have alternated between being a signed drummer in rock bands, and a freelance engineer/producer. I have my own studio here in town where I do a lot of music production including a fair amount of computer editing. I am predominately a PC user (Nuendo, Cubase, and some Logic) and have built custom systems for other studio owners and engineers in town. I was honored to have been given the Giga product line to champion. I have been a participant in this forum for the last couple of months (using my \"double top secret buddy\" alias), and was thrilled to see the level of knowledge as well as enthusiasm about this product. TASCAM is known for the support that we offer users in our forums. We are actively participating in every one of them on a daily basis. I would like to assure all of you that the new Giga forum will get the same attention that other TASCAM product forums do. We are very lucky to have an extremely sharp bunch of guys in the Product Specialist department, and there is always support available in a timely manner. We take pride in our BBS, and hope that all of you will participate when the Giga forum opens.
Although I have had intense training from Jim, Joe, Dave, and Kevin at Nemesys in Austin (Bugs.......BIIIGGGG bugs)...I will never claim to know everything about GigaStudio/Sampler right off the bat (give me another week or two ) . I am still learning little tricks and nuances on a daily basis. But what I can assure all of you is that I do have access to a lot of resource material and the engineers who created this product. TASCAM takes support very seriously and the acquisition of the Nemesys line is no exception.
Anyway, just thought I would pop up and say hey. I have been one of the main moderators in the computer recording forum at the TASCAM site for a year now. If you get the chance, feel free to visit and check things out until the Giga forum opens.
