Right - but you miss the point - here is states that it was planning ship in December of 2004 - and here is states that it's planning to ship in October 2005.
I have not forgotten that at all, as everybody considered it a dreadful delay - finally at least staying below a year (and losing customers for that reason). The Origin has exceeded that dreadful time already significantly, and Arturia still hasn't offered any delivery date!
And when it finally comes it nevertheless will hardly be bugfree, rather still show problems not detected by beta testers. Just have a look around in this forum concerning software. ;-)
And to boot - it took them another year or so after that to get their plug-in integration working, and they're still struggling with it today in some configurations.
And that's the point where I contradict, having used the plugin much faster than within a year. Concerning problems with different platforms, that's something completely unavoidable (problems in part being on the side of those platforms), and Arturia surely is among the last to point its fingers to anyone else here, instead profiting from a look at their own support situation here, where not even their dongle solutions seem to work without causing big trouble. ;-)
My point is: no company is immune to delivery delays.
Yes, and my point stays that Arturia already has its own record of hardware delivery delay, being significantly even beyond the worst Access scenario! And we still have to see how flawless it will work after delivery and should perhaps rather be realistic about that...
As far as your denegration of the Origin without a single scentilla of knowledge of its architecture, I'll just way "wait and see".
The only video of the Origin we have so far is trying to communicate exactly the modular architecture of the synth modules. ;-) It focuses on their feature of being able to use oscillators from one type with filters from another etc. This is still a subtractive synth, just with a lot of modular flexibility, right?
Why wait for MusikMesse to have your account deleted - just stop posting! How hard is that?
Because I will pronounce my opinion crystal clear as long as my deadline for the Origin is running, staying a potential customer exactly as long as I wish.
Afterwards I don't just want to stop posting, but I want my member data to be deleted. Simple as that :-)
