WaveFrame announced that its entire digital audio workstation product line, most notably WaveFrame/7, as well as the WaveFrame trademark have been acquired by a new company, Cybermation Inc., which will do business as the WaveFrame Software Group (WSG).
Cybermation/WSG is owned by John Schnell and Dave Hart. According to WSG, there will be continued efforts to develop and support WaveFrame/7.
According to WSG, to the best of their knowledge, WaveFrame Inc. has essentially ceased operations. Any business or past servicing issues should be directed to WaveFrame Inc. at 510/594-9455. FrameWorks/DX and the Diaquest products that WaveFrame Inc. was distributing will not be supported or sold through WSG. The FrameWorks/DX name has been discontinued, but the product will continue as “Pyramix Virtual Studio,” sold by Merging Technologies (www.merging.com). A new company, Diaquest Products LLC (www.diaquest.com), has acquired the Diaquest product line, and will continue to develop and support these products.
Effective immediately, all WaveFrame/7 development, sales and support will be directed by WSG through its Southern California offices. Sales will be handled exclusively through its dealer channels. Engineering and support will continue as before. Pricing, options and support details are being reviewed and updated, and will be made available to all of its dealers in the near future.
Dave Van Hoy, who has been associated with the WaveFrame product line since its earliest days, will continue his association with WaveFrame/7 by serving in an advisory capacity to WSG. In addition, his company, Advanced Systems Group, will continue in its role as one of WSG’s flagship dealers.
According to WSG, an official 7.10 release version for WaveFrame/7 will be posted shortly. Eventually, new releases will be issued on a fee-for-upgrade basis, and a more traditional beta program will be initiated. WSG will also be offering fee-based support for the legacy WaveFrame 6 line of products; details will be published soon.
