    Given how long they've owned Melda, and the fact that they said they're not changing how UVI works, I don't imagine there's much to worry about.

    There is a precedent for Franco-Belg innovation:

    Yeah.
    UVI is (was) a quite small team (~ 20 ppl) in France and I think it was very bad for them to see their products cracked. I can imagine that sales since last year have dropped massively, especially among hobbyists, so they were looking for a roof to crawl under, otherwise they would have gone bankrupt sooner or later.
    Image Line does not seem to be the worst choice as @Quantised Noise said.

    That would be kind of sad sad if "suddenly" Falcon (for example) was no longer a VSTi and only built in FL Studio.

    The only thing that worries me is whether Image Line will be bought out at some point? Not that Image Line ends up
    like Native Instruments or Steinberg where it is only about profit (maximizing profit at the expense of consumers).

    UVI makes good quality instruments this will just make Fl studio better and more people will use UVI This means UVI and Image Line is winning in this type of situation ....people making music with Falcon within the Fl studio piano roll that seems like a good combo congrats to Image line.... for a side note maybe image line will start adding film scoring type of features to fl studio they piano roll is already easy to use so i can see this happening as well

    Well, we can start to worry if they are being bought by Apple.

    May be because you don't understand a company need 1 FULL YEAR to get an annual balance ?
    UVI Falcon 2.5 and almost ALL BANKS on sister site : 26.11.2021 (so year 2021 was almost finished : no problem )

    One full year of dropping sells (2022) ... and now (2023), they can't even finish their first quarter ... and so they are bought by IL

    "JUST AFTER" is one year for a company :wink:

    If what you said is true (no way to be sure unless you are their bookkeeper), it means that UVI weren't in a very healthy situation in the 1st place (financially speaking).

    Of course, UVI isn't near as big as NI, Steinberg or EastWest for example but if what happened last year on the sister site was enough to make them collapse then no wonder that they were bought by another company.
