The original ideas and actual software is brilliant, but it's rarely more than solid beta in stability and it takes months for simple things to iron out.
From a Gearslutz post.
Upon investigating NI's site it looks like Stephan Schmitt is out of there, wording has changed on the info stuff about the CEOs etc.The thing that concerns me the most about the present state & the future of NI is that it looks like Stephan Schmitt has left to start something new.
According to it's website Nonlinear Labs was founded in Nov 2011 to develop digital musical instruments & effects.
Who is in charge of Nonlinear Labs? - Stephan Schmitt
In case you don't know Stephan Schmitt is the guy behind Reaktor, and very possibly the main force behind most in house products at NI since day one!
I fucking hope to god he makes plug ins! and anally rapes NI's profit margin by being the real deal. I seriously am happy as a pig in shit about this!
Good things are going to happen I believe.
