Factory Reset

Leaving something behind you is never easy when you put your whole heart into it. Five years of Audiotool have shaped me, taught me and left their scars. As of November 2012 I am no longer involved in the project and wish the team all the best and success in pursuing the democratization of music production.

Of course, every end is a new beginning. For me this means that I am going to start a whole new adventure. Luckily I am not alone in this because starting from scratch is never easy. Together with my colleague Tim Richter we are going to pursue our ideas of a multi-platform development kit.

2013 will be a roller-coaster. I am all in.

    Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back.

    Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too.

    All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way.

    Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it.
    Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.
    Begin it now.

    Hi Joa,

    Now we know that Adobe Air won’t support Windows Metro i’m all the more interested in this. Hope you can share a bit more of your plans soon. Very curious what language the user of the sdk must use. Hope it’s a strong typed one…

    Good luck with the new job/project!

    Best of luck for you! I am very curious what you will come up with. And if you ever need a beta tester – you know where to find me ;-)
