Wink Software Easter Eggs in DAWs?

Hi Everyone!

Not quite sure if this is the right forum, but I guess it´s too gear related to be off topic?!
Feel free to move it, if not appropriate!

What I wanted to ask you slutz is, do you know any software easter eggs in DAWs or any other audio software?

I know some from non audio programmers, but are their funny developers in the our industry?

Thanks for sharing!

Yours Friedemann

I can't remember what plugin it was but i remember one where you had to unscrew all front panel screws to acces the deeper settings. The front panel really came off

There's one in Tracktion 3. A lot of users were complaining that there wasn't a more traditional mixer in Tractkion, and there still isn't in Tracktion 3. When you look through the assignable keycommands there is one there to Show Mixer.

Assigning a key and pressing it just brings up a picture of a Mackie mixer that doesn't do anything.

In BFD 1.5, when you're in drummer's perspective mode... after the GUI's been open for long enough, there are some hilarious conversation text balloons that come up from the shadowy figures on the other side of the glass window, in the control room.

In Adobe's Audition, you go to the about section, click on the "o"'s, and they drop down like little marbles, then after a few second you can click on them again to get more marbles bouncing around.... you can get lots of marbles bouncing around.

Nuendo 3 or 4 had a text on one of the track notes in one of the templates saying:
"all your base are belong to us".

People thought it was a virus.

Maybe a bit late, but after getting there, I can't change anything?
Everywhere I click, the front panel comes back.
