Very sad news indeed. At risk of sounding gauche, what does this say about the future of TAB Funkenwerk?

He was such a nice guy and so sharing with his thoughts - big hug to anyone close to him. Sad day from my perspective.

Very sad news. I spoke to him on the phone once and he was very helpful and kind. Our conversation ended up going into deeper topics than audio and it was obvious that he was an open and loving soul. With only one phone conversation with him I still felt a connection and this news makes me very sad - my heart goes out to all of those who we close to him and are devastated by this loss.

I don't get it!

I recently went through having my V78M in for a check up and he was always very kind and took the time to explain the process.

I had no idea he was sick. Anyone have details?

He had a heart condition, and had surgery previously. Such a good soul. This is a very real loss for all of us, and for his partner and his daughter.

So lange mein Freund Oliver. Du warst ein guter Mann.

miss you a ton big buddy,
sad you are not here anymore,
you gave us incredible tones,
you gave us the best you had,
I always looked up to you,
literally and figuratively,
you are such a big dude, no one fits in your shoes,
no one else's chest would fit your heart,
A very sad day, losing a kind hearted friend,

Oliver was a great guy. I've been in fairly close contact with him for five years now and he was SOOOOO overworked due to his magical mojo masterpieces of music. Stress is terrible for heath. I miss him already.

RIP.

Man, they're not that far north of us and I'd thought many times about contacting, day-road-trip, etc.

There's probably more at the PRW forums:
