KRISTAL 2 reached Alpha Status!


What does this mean?

Basically, not much for the public at the moment, but it is a very important milestone in the development process and we would like to share this information with you.

What happened the past 14 months?

As already mentioned in an earlier post, we have established a completely new infrastructure for K2. It was a painful and time-consuming way to go, but a good and necessary investment in the future of this product. Contrary to KRISTAL 1.0, which was a quick and dirty hack based on old source code, K2 was designed cleanly from ground up.

What does "Alpha Status" mean?

The current Alpha 1 Version was built for internal use only. The core functionality works quite stable, some new features are still missing. The new look and workflow of K2 is already partially visible. My personal impression is: "Very, very sexy" ;-) It will definitely be a next-generation sequencer, breaking through some old-fashioned conventions.

What happens next?

We will continue working on this piece of software with a small, streamlined team until the "Beta" status has been reached. Then it will be presented to a broader audience to gather feedback and for testing (please no preregistrations at the moment). There is no date scheduled yet for the start of K2 Beta Testing, it completely depends on how much of our spare time we can dedicate to the project.

Thank you all for your patience and for using KRISTAL! The success of K2 will depend on your support and acceptance as users!

Cheers,

Matthias

Alpha 2


"will not at last depend on the support and acceptance of users"-- I'm confused! What will it depend on? Surely you mean that it WILL depend on acceptance and support of users. Without users who accept and support the product it cant succeed. Please clarify your remarks. Thanks for your efforts with the development of a very nice product.

I'm sorry if this isn't correct English. I had some good red wine before writing this post. In German it should mean "...nicht zuletzt...". I will remove the confusing terms.

Cheers,

Matthias

Zumbalahtawa Stubu?


Tsiudo Wah-Wah!

Removing of confusing terms of Matthias post makes me feel even more confused. And what this means....I have been eating beans (instead of drinkking wine) and farting a fanfare of the info and waiting patiently the early next year ( date 2/2/2006) when K2 will be offically released. That?s what the my tribe?s Shaman told me....but he had been drinkkin red, white and even a yellow chinese wine (and much...) after he told me that, so the date can be 2 days later.:P

Greetings From The El Loco Beach....Zulumaan The Musician...or whatever:o

Mmhh??? A connection to Dougs lawn mower? Voodoomans videoscreen? A built-in sixpack of Becks beer? Intelligent brain-control?

Nice to hear at least something, but for me, it leaves a big question mark behind.

Sorry 'bout my doubts... :(

Flippin' Sweet!


This is awesome. Good to hear from you Matthias! I'm really excited to see the new features that are to come.

I think we have a pretty solid userbase here that will be able to put it to the test once time for beta rolls around. I'm anxious to see how midi sequencing and VSTi's fit in to the picture (although I may be the only one) :D .

CAN'T WAIT!!!

out, Tryp


Heck yes!

Will there be a localisation plugin ?
I know it's a bit boring but if kristal becomes even more efficient, having this log in his own language is more comfortable !
(By the way, where exactly in Germany is located Kristal's team ?)
