TEAC America, Inc. will cease further development of GIGASTUDIO and GIGASTUDIO related products as of July 21, 2008.
Product sales and technical support will continue through the end of the year. "
My heart goes out to the 5 fine programmers who have been released from duty. No doubt they have gone on to greener pastures.
This is indeed the worst possible timing for me, as I have just released a second product a matter of days ago. This product is the first of its kind, and was completely dependent upon the Giga technology. Now there is no hope of improving it beyond its present level. My heart also goes out to the other developers who have supported this platform, and been treated in this miserable way by TASCAM.
As for Wavelore's valued customers, and their need for support, we are requesting that you keep your business with us, as we intend to make our products multi-platform just as soon as is possible. Interested customers will be offered the cheapest possible (we aim for free) crossgrades when ready. Those of you who have purchased the American Zither or the Pedal Steel Guitar have all, to my knowlege gotten your product(s) to work satisfactorily. It is our aim to offer the best possible support we can under these difficult circumstances. Being that we cannot possibly fix everything that might go wrong on the many systems out there, we will be as cooperative as possible regarding returns and crossgrades.
Since both of our existing products were tested extensively before release, and since we still have contact with ex-Tascam engineers who have offered whatever help they can give us (within the scope of their terms w/Tascam), we plan to keep making them available until stock runs out. The same support and crossgrading will be offered to new customers.
Announcements to be posted on our site shortly.
Best to all,
p.s. Apologies to admin for any commercially related content...please feel encouraged to edit if you feel incline. Respectfully requesting you leave the Tascam announcements intact.
