Sonic Faction Gone?

Post by dadarkman » Tue Dec 10, 2019 5:59 am

They had a couple of great packs made specifically for Ableton Live: Dope Matrix MOD SQUAD, Tricky Traps, Polytek, Hypermorph, ARCHETYPE, and Probability Pack which was included in Live 10 Suite. Well, it seems that they are gone out of business cause their website is no more and their twitter feed been dormant since Oct. 2018. 8O

Just was wondering out loud what happened to them! :?:

To be honest it’s a shame, but if your DSP skills are as good as their’s it’s probably worth investing them in a full time job with a larger company.

That’s me purely speculating. :|

Their products are great (some are bloody amazing).

Their instruments are very "Kontakt-like", scripted sample-based libraries, but using Max MSP instead of KSP.

I always thought they should offer their services or partner with other companies to build M4L-based scripted libraries for their samples, some sample companies would probably welcome a less crowded field (and some already partner with Ableton).

Trying to sell sample-based synths you compete with way too many synth plugins, their latest Futurism stuff basically competes with Splice/Serum/Nexus/Sylenth/every EDM product.

Their website is still down, social media accounts inactive...

So what’s the status of their devices for sale on the Ableton website? Will they be maintained and updated, if not by them then by Ableton?
