First, a short personal introduction: Professionally, I am a web developer with a preference or open source. Privately, I am an amateur keyboard player and play in a band.
Though I own two rather good keyboards, I still sometimes feel that I'm missing 'something'. To be more specific, what I'm missing is something that – at least to some degree – can sound like a 70's-style analog synth, but without the huge price tag of a modern Moog or the like. And, since I regard myself as a live musician, it's absolutely got to have presets that can be chosen quickly and easily without having a computer attached to the device. Furthermore, it's got to be packed in a solid casing that is suitable for live use - preferably steel and definately not acrylic. What I have in mind is a box that does not have physical controls as there are a number of good and relatively cheap MIDI-controllers in the market, and there's no reason to reinvent the wheel.
Lately I have invested some time in investigating Axoloti, and I must say that the time I have spent with it has been very entertaining and fun. I have made a number of Axoloti synth prototypes, and the sound of these has slowly but steadily improved. Now I have come to a point where I think it would be legitimate to ask a couple of questions about the Axoloti project itself:
What is the project organisation? I looks like, at least for now, it's more or less a one-man project - or am I missing some important information here?
What is the business model for the project?
Is there a roadmap for future development?
The documentation is close to non-existent. Are there any plans to improve on this?
Before I invest a lot of time (let alone money) in trying to realize my vision as described above based on Axoloti, I feel that I need to be more certain about the answers to these questions. Hope that noone feel insulted by the questions. I see a lot of potential in this project, I'm just trying to point out what I see as areas that need improvement.
