...annnnd the Digi forums are turning into quite the flame fest
I suggest you stop wasting valuable resources and hire some developers(and stop letting ones go) to fix the code, which is obviously in pretty rough shape, and start delivering the top feature requests that haven't changed for the past 10 years or Pro Tools wont live on. You need more cooks in the kitchen. Do something that really should be top priority and higher some more developers. I have little faith in the future of Pro Tools with whoever is now running the ship now.
It's really sad to see Digi go down like this. Ever since the AVID takeover, there's been quite a bit of unrest in the community. Once people were beginning to leave the Daly City office. It was pretty apparent that this company was going to be another victim of "corporate restructuring".
Well I'm REALLY glad now that I jumped off the ProTools ship, when Apple bought out eMagic and released Logic Studio.
