I just wrote the following letter to Nemesys, but I feel it should also be out in the public as a general warning about Amazing Sounds:
Hi Nemesys/Tascam guys
I write to you, because I think you may need to take a closer look at Amazing Sounds who are selling CDxtract via the Nemesys site.
Here is why:
I asked (email) Amazing Sounds (AS) about whether CDxtract did support reading MESA 1 files. A guy named Frederic answered 2 weeks later: \"Yes it does\". I bought the software from AS and it did not work. Neither did reading SampleCell II pc work. I contacted Frederic, but luckily I also contacted the author of the software, Bernard Chavonnet. He was sorry that AS had given me the wrong info (it does not yet read MESA 1) , and the reason SampleCell import did not work was because of the older CDxtract version I got from AS. I found the newest version on Bernards site www.cdxtract.com. I dont know the details, but Bernard tells me that he had a lawsuit against AS, and AS lost. Bernard terminated dealing with AS 8 months ago, but AS keeps selling his software against Bernards will. And they are doing this very badly I might add. I got terrible support from AS, and I got VERY good support from Bernard. I have a very strong sense that AS are not playing by the rules, and I urge you to investigate this matter a bit. At least you could contact Bernard (firstname.lastname@example.org) since he is the author of CDxtract, and ask for an opinion. Also take a look at his site www.cdxtract.com and compare it to AS. That will also tell you a bit about who is the serious dealer.
I am not in any way affiliated with Bernard, I just happened to stumble over this case as a CDxtract buyer.
