Not only do you create the most impressive sound technology,... but you teach your students how to use it!.
I am soooo impressed and so gratefully, glad regarding the Modus Operandi of Spectrasonics, that if it were up to me, I would buy NOTHING else. By that I mean, I would buy your DAW, (if you offered one),your Vsti's and anything else you have to offer.
Why? because there is no other company that has even come close to Spectrasonics in:
a) quality of overall products ( samples and Vsti's)
b) effects packaged with the same
c) commitment to the end user via commmunication, and help in sofar as forums go
d) refusal to simply be a follower in the "me too" crowd of developers
I could go to "from a-z" with my points, but I won't bore you with my enthusiasm.
I am so tired of promisies and large scale marketing promo's from other companies that I have become a bit a of sceptic.
One thing I do know however, is that in all of the years that I have dealt with your company, I have NEVER received anything other than TOP NOTCH product and service( I must also include a newer member into this crowd which would be Kyle over at NineVolt).
You guys have singlehandedly slung this industry on its ear. All of the pissers and moaners befudle me. I know the Mac thing has been an issue, but I am Windows,.....and though I say..... NO ISSUES.....(more ore less), most of any issues I have are my own goofy problems.
So I can only say, Eric, having followed you for 20 years. I am one of your oldest customers, and certainly one of your oldest fans and advocates.
You make me want to live and explore. I hope Omnisphere shapes up into the product that you have desired it to be. When I look at the preview videos, I can only tell you that my jaw drops with each passing video!!
Given all that you know of the industry, the DAWS, their shortcomings, etc. I WHOLEHEARTEDLY along with a whole slew of my compatriots hereby petition you to create a new DAW,.....the DAW of the 21 century in a way that only Spectrasonics could possibly do.
Fact is, you know the ins, the outs, the plusses, and the minuses, and all of the ho hum competitors crap. You've already put the effects induststry to shame with your RMX effects.
Perhaps its time to take out the guys who just do DAWS because it's "their job" We nedd more. We need continuity, compaibility and workflow throughput that works.....
NO ONE could do it better ,.... but then again you already know that.....
Go for the Gusto Eric,... no one can touch you,... and if they they think they can,... they'll likely die tryin!!!!!!!!!!
