You obviously weren't waiting for the sampler option for the
K2000 or the Event EZ-Bus (to name two). Same sort of deal. I've
worked in big and small companies, and I've seen good and bad project
management in both sizes. Project management on complicated tech
products can be sort of a black art. The pressures to get things out
can be fairly overwhelming, leading even fairly experienced
programmers to err on the optimistic side.
I came back from winter NAMM in Januarary after getting a
Repeater demo thinking:
a - this is a really cool product
b - summer at the earliest
c - I really want one
Well, it's still a really cool product, they actually hit summer,
I still really want one.
Smallish under-resourced companies should be cut some slack, IMO.
There are VERY few big companies in the Music Instrument market; it's
mostly done out of a driving passion to make a great thing.
