Hello snaper,

It seems you are Gamma-Devices, right?
I think it's not faithful to your customers cutting down your old patches.

Tnaks

can't buy it. i click on "pay with paypal" where it sais 10 ?, then it terminates, saying that it doesn't accept payments in this currency. you want my money or not?

freakin maxforlive homepage turns a euro sign into a "?"

it sais 10 "euros".

Hi Hyakken,

That was rude, but because I really respect you and your work, I will give you an explanation, before the official one :

Thats right, I'm snaper, from Gamma Devices. That wasn't a secret.

With EncoderAudio I've just re-started everything (and started a music label aswell), after my DT108 flashdrive crashed, with all of my data, including all of the source files, codes, unfinished projects, etc., and my last backup was to old. (Actually, really-really old, back from 2013 I think.)
I know...amateur. Shame on me.

Trust me, I've learned the lesson.

I have a 9U, fully DIY'ed eurorack system in a plastic box, and all of the front panel designs were on that flash drive...

As I can't guarantee proper future updates for those devices, I've just closed Gamma Devices.

Products are not available anymore from Gumroad or Sellfy or from any other sources. (IIRC)

Yakuza is the first device, made trully from scratch, with all of the knowledge and experience what I have from GD.

Encoder Audio will focus more on the possible ways to connect modulars into Live and to integrate Live more into modulars.

I will make a longer letter on my old site as soon as I have enough time to organize my thoughts about this.

In the other hands, all of the old devices, the entire Total Bundle will be available as a free download from the website.

@Rozze :

Drop me a mail to encoderaudio@gmail.com and I will send you copy ;)

PP problem solved, sorry about this.

wow. bummer about the HD crash and losing your Gamma devices.

yakuza looks fun! looking forward to the posted download of the total gamma package.. i own several of them already. that's generous of you to make them available.

good luck w/encoder audio!

Hello encoderaudio,

Sorry for my rudeness.
I didn't know you lost all your data.
I use mediafire and dropbox for backing up my data.

Thanks

@encoderaudio

so you mean to tell that the full bundle that people paid for will be available for free...I do not think that's right...and sorry to hear about your crashed drive resulting in the lost of all your data encoderaudio but I was one of you loyal customers when you were Gamma-Devices.

@Prof

Yeah...I'm still looking for some kind of compensation for the TB users...

I'm a paying supporter of the full bundle on gamma-devices and I might as well weigh in here.

Snaper was definitely outgrowing the site, practically in the same way you are on yours, Hyakken. That's not to say that as a customer of you both, it isn't entirely worthwhile sifting around and finding all the genuine gems that you both are offering. Only that a very comprehensive browsing and shopping experience was getting a bit tangential. Difficult to see how devices related to each other (is that a product announcement or an interface update?), how the postings related to each other (was that a month ago, or should I search for all "instruments"? "would google do a better job of indexing this site or should I use the search field?"), etc.

As for no longer adding to the "complete bundle", in short, I completely understand. Longer answer, I would strongly encourage any producers to use separate monikers for collaboration, side-projects, and new directions. On the outlier example, it's kind of like Prince changing his name to a symbol so he can still release music outside the contract of a label that he thought was constraining him. As for getting into an agreement with your label or your customers in the first place? Hindsight is 20/20. And often we pay the consequences of lesser decisions. But more accurately, even contracts are designed to be renegotiated, their nuances altered.

Gamma-Devices offers all updates and additions to the complete bundle for free. I don't see how he's letting us down on that promise. The complete bundle and it's updates are free. If anything, it's probably an offer that none of us should repeat, because the seed money might be great for supporting further development, but the long-term is limiting unless you're willing to completely outgrow your shell, so to speak.

As for offering it free to non-paying customers. Is that right? Even that seems like a very generous and perhaps fiscally reckless offer. Just appreciate that the object for anyone using these devices is to create value in making things that at some point outweigh the price tag of the devices themselves. I've had at least a year with these things as a paying customer. I'm not about to depreciate what that time has been worth, nor am I threatened nor offended that other people will get them for free. (I just don't want to obligate Snaper to this offer if I've misunderstood him.) So, ding ding, soup's on.

Well, this is the story of the month as I'm concerned.

Nice to see a west coast modular influence in m4l.

@braduro

Snaper have made lots of good stuff.
I wonder why he gave up them.
I feel sorry for losing his data.
But technically m4l device contains its source codes in itself.
So updating them is not impossible.
I think continuing to develop them is good for his business.

Thanks

@Hyakken

Yeah, not impossible, but its hard.
You maybe know, I'm using that "poor mans copy protection method" : all object are transparent and everything positioned to 0.0.0.0, which makes extremly hard to re-open (even re-use parts, snippets) from those devices.

If a device will be re-used as an Encoder Audio device, then of course, its will be a free update for the existing users, for example, I'm working on a some kind of B. 266 clone (kind of), where the original idea based on the Geiger. It will be a free update for TB and Geiger users aswell :)

Luckly, user database is on the cloud ;)

@encoderaudio

So you lost all you master patches.
It sounds hard.

On the other hand, your copy protection works well.

Don't forget backup!

Thanks

@encoderaudio

wow sorry to hear of your hd loss.I am user of tonebox 2. Really love it. Good luck building up again. I think more convolution/tone boxes would be best!
