I love your points. Keep them coming !
Remember, radical, forward thinking - it is time for innovation !
this is research - no marketing involved.
the key devs can't make some money off of it
I do not make money out of it. I am working in this for the last 5 years.
The last two years were veeery intensive ... i have spend a lot of money on testing solutions and creating a DAW prototype, fine tuning it. I love it... it gave me freedom to create music that i was not capable of creating in any other way ! It was an insight of the future !
Now with the help of HPC Advisory Council we will expand testing to the scale of a supercomputer
with 100Gbit interconnection and down to a simple (but still powerful) cluster that some kid can create with a 1Gbit network ! Different solutions for different needs - but only one new solid mindset.
We need something that is a bit more constant.
This is priority No.1 - we will stay constant by removing the 'need' for OS yearly updates. It will be powerful enough to be TOP CLASS for 5 to 7 years.
A super computer that could run virtually endless amounts of plugs
That's what we are building. A supercomputer. And also few 'mini' Supercomputers because we want this technology to be usable from music professionals with limited resources ! So, we will make affordable solutions that have a great return of investment !
Are you proposing to employ an HPC cluster as a DAW/music computer?
-------- Yes !
It will be better, faster, highest sound quality, infinitely expandable.
The end of 'personal computer' along with all it's limitations.
We will make a press release very soon that will have more info about what we do and why.
I am thinking of making a Google plus hangout very soon so we can chat about it and ask me anything you want about the project.
Are you into that?
That's me on google plus: https://plus.google.com/107363503261150463012
