I thought they had 'reincarnated' as these guys:

Or am I wrong? The whole Creamware rollercoaster has gotten a bit too confusing for me. :shock:

Are they over-extending themselves making synth modules with wood panels? :lol:

I think the problem with Creamware is in the marketing (or lack of)

Very few people know about Creamware Scope cards or the hardware boxes.

So many people i know or have encountered will instantly say TC Powercore for best DSP card and best Hardware synth is as im sure you guessed.. Access Virus! Yet i'll mention Creamware and they have never heard of it!

the Creamware stuff is miles better than the competition so im sure their problems lie in the lack marketing

Have their products found their way into the hands of marquee players? Wakeman, Emerson, Downes, Wonder, Hancock, Duke, etc?

No, why should they? These guys can afford (and own) every vintage synth known to mankind. They don't need these new-fangled emulation synths.

Wakeman uses a CX3, Triton Studio, MS2000r and Karma in his rig. And, George Duke uses Korg Legacy. Why should they use "new-fangled emulation synths?" Well, why should they be prejudiced?

That's interesting. Wonder if they're just clearing stock or actually continuing the line?

I really like the build quality of my Minimax (the Minimoog sound is not for me though) and wouldn't like to see the ASB's die just yet, since I might want to check out the Prodyssey at some point.
