    I guess someone has to ask it...
    How about a THOROUGH update on Mackie/SS? It's been a long time, and I'm sure a lot of us would like to know what's going on...

    Hi Joel,
    Obviously no one can comment at the moment. Is it possible to get some commitment as to when all these mysteries will be revealed. I've been a Soundscape user for years. I'd like to expand my SS setup but this whole silence thing is giving me serious reservations about proceeding with the sizeable investment involved. It feels like the company has headed for the bunkers. There is no mention of this and other burning issues such as EQ's (need for lo/hi shelf/cut)or third party plug-in questions (will anyone be developing plugs for SS while it's future is such an unknown quantity?). The last few months of silence is doing little for the confidence of current users like myself. Some indication of what's going on would be appropriate given the undying loyalty and very public support SS users have shown towards Soundscape over the years. Come on guys, time to fess up and let us know something.

    Mike, and the members of this forum,
    I understand your hesitation and the very valid concerns you have stated.
    This is what I can assure you of.

    Soundscape has been moving along unaffected, and will continue to do so, Soundscapes future is "Very" much there.

    I am not a psychic so I can not give a "date" of resolution. although it looks to be sooner then most would believe.

    Now that Mackie have finalised the deal with Sydec (press release 11th April) is there any more info that you can give us ?

    This is getting ridiculous Joel. Quite bluntly, what the *@#%'s going on? Please, let's have some sort of evidence that SS management is still on the planet and not lying under a park bench somewhere.
    Just a grunt from SS would be nice...

    New Soundscape driver update available for download now.
    Supports WDM!
    That's some sort of vital sign, isn't it? ;)

    Antother sign is this contribution to Soundscape forum a few days ago:


    Dr Boo

    I got this in my mailbox less than a day ago!
    I would not say that they are dead, I have been told that massive things are being done in the background:

    Dear All,

    I am writing to confirm that Soundscape will be exhibiting at both the
    NAB and AES conventions. There is more good news following recent
    developments and we hope to share this with you within the next 48hrs
    followed by an official press statement.

    At NAB our Booth number is E2818 in the E-Topia Section of The Sands.
    AES details will follow.

    best regards,
    Nick Owen


    Hang in there! :p

  9. I'd prefer some kind of correspondence from Soundscape directly to their users. Not something posted to their usergroup by non-soundscape personnel. An email from Nick Owen to all registered users just asking to be patient would be a start. O.K. so they've updated a driver and are exhibiting at NAB. This is a positive(ish) sign but I think their attitute of non-communication to the people who pay their salaries is pathetic.

    Hello every one, I do understand your frustration in this matter, however I have just returned from the NAB show in LV ( BTW,,, SonOfSmawg,, I tried to get ahold of you while I was in LV but was unable to email you with the e-mail provided on this site) We had a VERY positive show, and the outlook in huge!
    there will be a press release on Monday, that I will post here along with my personnel views on it to help give a better perspective.

    Hang in there guys!!!

    Hmmm...the email posted here is correct, and I haven't had any other problems with it. It really sucks that I missed you.
    I'll be watching intently for your good news.
