Let's imagine that we as the community of Storm users will want to get some improvements in Storm. I think a wishlist will appear sooner or later. And now tell me, this question is for Arturia's team, what are you going to do with that.  I mean, can we expect that our wishes will be taken under consideration and we'll see e.g. Storm 3.0.1?

Fool me once, shame one me. Fool me twice, shame on me.

Version 1.5 was an exhilarating departure from the standard fare of MIDI/WAV studio packages, with its extremely intuitive user interface. It was positioned, at that time, at the cutting edge in this new field.

By the time Version 2 came out, Stormís limitations became glaring as other programs made significant advances. This upgrade was anticipated by the hopeful as one where Storm could regain its rightful position at the top. But alas, it wasnít much of an upgrade at all... fool me once.

Over two years passed before Version 3 was announced. Amongst other things, it promised advances that really should have happened in Version 2. But whoĎs counting, thought the eternally hopeful like myself -- Storm is a great concept and as soon as they get it right, it will at least be a cult hero in the now-enormous home studio field.

But alas (again), while they got most of the advances right in theory, they were half-baked in their execution. In my case, also for some others, the product is completely unusable. It canít even keep up with itself, even with simple tasks like playing a drum & bass sequence with no live audio.

And so far, just like with Storm 2, Arturia doesnít exhibit the slightest interest in problems with their product, let alone release a maintenance upgrade... fool me twice.

Iíve been monitoring this forum and the Arturia upgrade page for a sign of life, but it would seem that they are as uninterested as the public in a product that could have been a shining star. I give up.

As a parting comment, I would like to wish Arturia the failure they have been trying so hard to achieve... youíre almost there!

Hi me,

Well, don't feel so angry at arturia team, they try to do their best to satisfy their users but you can believe me, even if I'm also rough with them especially through e-mails, I can admit they're still a young company developing extremely sophisticated softwares so it's not all that easy to release patches every week. We must be patient ! As for a community, I tried hard to create one lately but it was a big failure ... Nobody came in and I simply gave up unfortunately.

I've used Acid and Fruity Loops (FL Studio) for a long time now and I must say that Storm is an easy way to create great sounds. I have found it frustrating to record audio using EZTrack, but I'm only on day 2 of using Storm and hope that I'll find a solution to this problem.

I'm not sure about Storm's history, but I do think it's a useful tool for creating sketch ideas quickly. FruityLoops allows for much more control over the sound of each module, but at the same time, its sequencing and arrangement functions are not nearly as intuitive as Storm's.

I can see, though, where Storm's connection to the outside world is really limited. For example, it looks like we can't use DirectX effects or run external MIDI devices with Storms sequencer. That's a big problem for someone who is in search of an all-in-one solution. However, I think this could be overcome through the use of ReWire modules.

Anyway, just wanted to add in my opinion. I hope new modules and patches will be released soon.
