Dear people at Arturia,
Let me introduce myself a little: I'm 53 y.o. and I've been playing synthesizers for over 30 years. In all those years I've had over 50 different synths spread over a long period. They were from different brands, analog to digital, ARP to several Waldorfs and Korgs etc... So I was very pleased when Arturia brought out the Origin and started to almost daily check the forum. I'm not a poster on the forum, cause of the language barrier, reading it is not a problem though.
But with what I know now, I would have never EVER bouth the Origin for the 2500 euros that I paid for it! It probably wasn't that good of an idea to make a hardware synth, especially when you can't make it into a full product. Or do I have to say 'WANT TO'? Now there's writings about how you're going to make another product... Wouldn't it be a better idea towards your customers who paid so much to finish your first product before starting a new one???
I've never encountered something like this in my history of synths!! And you all find this so obvious?? You have made so many promises toward the buyers, but tricked us all! You made up a beautiful story, but it turned into a nightmare!
The economical reason that Philippe told is really weak! We've invested into Arturia, right? If you would have told the real vision of Arturia from the start, more people would have bought it. But I'm sure that potential customers changed their minds when they read on the forum (I wish I had)! That's normal, right? Who gives 2500 euro for something that's unfinished and that will be this way for a loooooooong time!
So, people of Arturia, please be clear about it and please tell us when the Arturia will be a complete product, as you all promised. Be true to us, also on the forum and try to help out the costumors with the technical questions too (this does not have to be on daily base, but really, weeks before an answer?? come on). And don't hand out false promises, DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!!
That I'm not pleased by all this, you may have noticed by now, cause really, I'm fed up with this b*******t, and I know I'm not the only one! I'm sure you're losing potential costumers as we speak... read about it on the forum... if you have the time (sarcasm).
ps: I'm sure you're good in your software, but maybe you should find someone who can link the software and the hardware. I know that it's not that great of an idea economicaly speaking... so just keep us waiting a while longer.
