In light of the VSL announcement, I'v thought some more about the FX-MAX and GVA issues.
I am predicting that GVA will be either co-released with GS3, or even bundled as part of it.
I think all of the delays we have seen with GVA are tied up with agreements between MAX and Tascam. The delays are probably at the insistence of Tascam to either ensure a co-release or to ensure a thorough quality, bug free product.
From what we've heard on the grape vine, GVA has been nearly ready for 6 months. I think it is ready. I think it was ready a long time ago. I think an agreement between MAX and Tascam is the only thing preventing its release.
I think to avoid any non-disclosure issues and awkward questions, Max simply refused to participate in his own forum ...
Only in the last two days have we heard from him to reveal that release is now "very, very close". GS3 is very, very close too. Co-incidence ? No way.
But with VSL's announcement last night, and Max's waking up from 3 months of hibernation, I see these as the strongest signals yet that GS3 is imminent.
(Either that or they are sweetners for more bad news and delays .)
But then again I may be wrong, and may be eating large quantities of humble pie in the weeks to come.
