    This is a developer I myself never heard of until now, but it's always sad to hear a developer call it quits.

    They have not shared any explanation as to why they have decided to quit, but it's a nice gesture to give their plug-ins away for free!

    Does anyone here have any experience of this developer?

    I'm so curious about what happened, I was researching their plugins and found out the dev deleted some of their social medias, the same way I got excited for the free plugins I got kinda worried (?) for the creator.

    Just add to cart the ones you want and add email info etc and place order, it wont charge anything. You can instantly download directly.

    Hmm... that sounds weird. I wonder if they had made some statement about the reason to quit but decided to delete the posts afterward for some reason.

    Just tried ghost and ghost x. Both are stuttering, not working fluently.

    Probably overloaded the server when after BPB posted about their plug-ins being free :rofl:

    I'm sure they will be posted on the sister site within a few days anyways!

    Downloaded the beta .zip for catalina since it doesn't require going through the whole "shopping cart" process. The wav3s plugin caused logic to crash when I moved it from one channel to the mix buss

    Link is dead. Never mind it's working now. Oh I think I saw them come up on KVR last year, looks familiar. No reason not to grab them if they're free.

    No reason not to grab them indeed, and also important for preservation.

    So I downloaded and tried a couple of their plugins (like e.g. Denoiser and Rebalance). And deleted them. Not worth using, even for free, unfortunately.

    Interesting, I wonder why..
    If the plugs work correctly/minimally, you remake the UI's and they're just as good as any other..

    So just sell them for 1-5€, or ask for a simbolic donation,
    and it's like a milk cow that gives you something, at least enough to pay the domain/server..

    I wish they released the source code tho, lotsa ppl could learn from it.. :yes:

    OTOH the streissand effect could be strong,
    more ppl will know them now and that generates interest..
