E-Control Development is Discontinued

Despite hundreds of man hours of development with no less than four different developers over the course of several years, we have come to this painful realization: Because of the requirement to support DAW presets and automation, a great deal of control data has to be sent down a relatively slow MIDI connection. Try as we might to speed things up using a variety of approaches, the result proved to be slow, sluggish performance. We released an alpha version and testers agreed that, given the frustratingly slow response, E-Control is not useable and ultimately causes more frustration than benefit.  As a result, we have made the painful decision to discontinue development efforts on E-Control.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience. We did our very best, but were unable to deliver a product that met user's expectations.
