Hope they continue their work - sounds like they will. I dearly cherish my Octopus Sequencer.

Oh man, that sucks. I've wanted an Octopus since I first saw one, but it's never been something I could realistically justify financially. I hope something can be done to get more of them out in the future.

Tough times indeed for small companies making expensive products for a limited market.
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

genoQs have released a statement about their plans for the future on their site:

...and we have a great new discussion group for both Octopus and Nemo that has taken off really well in the last couple of weeks:
