An update from the Audio Media Research owner. One cool thing about this digital age is how accessible owners, musicians and devs are to the general public…
I am so sorry it has taken me so long to get here. It’s been one heck of a week, as you can imagine. There’s a lot going being discussed and I’ll do my best to cover all of it.
First off, for anyone one that is having trouble activating ReValver, this video will get you going:
If you are still having issues…please please send an email to support (at) audiomediaresearch.com or (even better) fill out the support form at www.audiomediaresearch.com. By submitting the form, you are ensured that nothing falls through the cracks.
Ok…about Peavey and AMR. Here’s the story. ReValver was originally developed by Michael Ljunggren in Sweden under his company Alien Connections. At the time, I was working at Peavey and stumbled across Michael and struck up a conversation. Come to find out, he thought that he had taken things as far as he could on his own and was looking to sell the company. I went to Hartley Peavey and basically convinced him to buy the company and hire Michael. So, Michael and I teamed up and got to work. First came III, then III.V, then 4. One thing that never really came was the resources we needed to grow. In all fairness to Peavey, this was not intentional. The last few years has seen the audio industry pounded by changing markets, China tariffs, the decline of the independent retailer, etc, etc. Peavey has had to refocus on it’s core competencies…and being a software company was just not one of them. So, after a few years of dragging along the best that we could, we knew something had to change and, honestly, so did Peavey. So, to make a very long story short, we are now an independent company. It’s important to realize that although the “company” has changed hands a couple times…it’s still the same core team…and we are dedicated and passionate about ReValver. It’s also important to note that Jose is still with us handling support. Jose is amazing and a superhero. We were also truly blessed to have Hartley Peavey be on our board of directors. He is truly a legend and has been on of ReValver’s biggest supporter and, without him, we wouldn’t be here today.
Sigh…the dreaded “dongle”. I will be honest, before the dongle, we were suffering terribly to piracy. After, things got better. Having said that, we are completely open to any ideas. I’m going to look around to see what other options we can look at. What needs to happen asap is a way for customers to manage their registered USB devices. That is a priority for me.
We also agree that we needed to focus on getting more bass content in ReValver. We are on it.
So, yes…we have new releases coming soon. As you guys mentioned, Craig Anderton did review our new apps. Unfortunately, this happened right before the Peavey/AMR conversion, which pushed things back about a month.
In closing, I really want to hear from you all. I am always available at scott (at) audiomediaresearch.com. Let me know what’s on your mind…good or bad…I’m here to listen and make things happen. We wouldn’t be here without your all…
