Some thoughts for the iOS ecosystem - Eventide and other Audio Companies
These are some of my thoughts that I posted up
on the Eventide UltraTap Delay thread.
It was suggested from there that I create a new thread.
First pertinent comment
"Right now the main iOS developers need our money.
Eventide have been around for a long time.
There are some awesome developers here that need that love.
Eventide built several machines over generations to sound
like some of the codes coming out from the iOS house."
The recent Spectrum apps are brilliant.
Second pertinent comment
"I hear you, my first thought was brilliant the iOS House
has finally got the interest of the big boys, especially
Eventide, as every producer knows they are a quality company.
My next thought was that Eventide
has been around for a long time,
there's no rush in buying their stuff.
My next thought was that the current iOS developers need
some serious investment to keep on going.
Eventide could create a scholarship fund or regular competition
to reinvest some of their profits back into the iOS scene.
Eventide earn £31,000,000 per year according to this link
The iOS music house also needs to attract more Artists.
So for my part I can wait a couple of years to purchase Eventide
and I'll be supporting the current and new developers in the interim.
The current developers have made some classic apps."
The third pertinent comment
"Voting for the people who will gain from the financial investment
that Eventide or another major company could provide.
I mentioned it previously.
Scholarship, competitions etc.
Say a smaller developer would like to develop a new effect,
or assist in making a plugin transition from iOS 12 to iOS 13.
Some good developers have been hit by these transitions
and some of them are creating very interesting code.
Eventide with the revenue it attracts could reinvest back into the iOS Sphere.
It works mutually.
Eventide or another company or companies
will always have a client base,
the iOS developers will be able to create more apps
and the iOS artists, tech heads, musicians, nutters etc all benefit."
