Eric of Synful, has been very quiet post NAMM. No (post NAMM) updates to the news section of his site, no additions to the user demos of his site (even though new good demos keep showing up on the forums), no posts on forums (he was a bit of a regular).
Poll: Is he:
And the correct answer is:
A) Negotiating with some large company to get bought out or merged into?
. a. Which company?
B) Based on initial community comments improving his v1 software.
. a. Code changes?
. b. Adding better additive sample material?
C) Based on initial community comments about price, splitting up the instruments into cheaper priced sets?
. a. Which set would you buy?
. b. What price point would guarantee him huge sales?
D) Forming a new company with Ray Kurwiel where they will sell a screen saver softsynth that can emulate the natural singing voice of the most famous Opera Tenors using a computer mouse with scroll wheel as a controller.
I do not know, just being silly about his silence, but on the speculative side he is a coder and did comment on this forum about possibly doing B and C to some extent and of course given the amazing nature of the product and it’s groundbreaking potential, A is a strong possibility given that NAMM is where “meetings” happen and it was the last time we heard from him. I hope he stays away from D, although I can often forgive Ray’s forays into wackiness (ie Ramona his alternative female VR alterego) because my first real keyboard (not counting my Casio CZ) was a K1000, I rather have Eric coding synful than writing books about how we will all be robots one day (probably musical ones).
Anyway, anyone else want to pontificate on what Mr. Lindemann might be up to?
