Just out of curiosity what do you mean by "space" here? Is this referring to a physical space for interaction with new hardware or primarily a different set of discussion avenues with MOD core members? I tried to look it up when this topic first appeared, though either info was more sparse on the mod website than expected or I was looking in the wrong places.

Sorry. My wording was not good. "Environment" would have been a much better option than "spaces".

MOD Labs materializes when we attend hackathons and the likes, but it is mostly an online entity.

Our main customer base requires constraints to our products products that clash with some expectations of the hacker/maker/developer audience. The later group is smaller than the first, but it is equally important. That said, part of the MOD Labs initiative is to provide this parallel environment, with way less rules and constraints.

If a parallel fits, I'd say it is similar to the Debian system. We already have our stable/testing environments and we're now creating Sid.

  1. I need this forum to ask questions.
  2. I need this forum for its archive of knowledge.

So I just donated €10 via Paypal to (see this topic too). Wish I could do that automatically every year so I wont forget. :)

I hope that falkFX (from the KXStudio repository and distribution) does not leave this forum. Thanks everybody for making it possible to create music on Linux.

I'm sorry to reopen the wound here, but after a few months passed, I feel that falkTX clearly leaves a huge whole in this forum. He was very responsive, provided great (general) support and technical information, and was very active as a moderator (quickly dealing with discussions that were derailing). Of course, he also provided support for the important pieces of software he developed himself (or packaged for Linux), KXStudio repositories and distribution, and, as far as I could see, was always friendly and level headed.

I want to emphasize that I don't blame raboof for getting the sponsorship, and it is clear from this discussion that he tried to make the process transparent and had only the best interest of the forum in mind. I, myself, sit on the middle: I see the argument from both sides having valid points. I also have nothing against MOD (I don't know much at all about the company and its relationship with open source/Linux), even though I always tend to side with open source.

But, with all that being said, I'd like to say I'd much rather help support the site financially than having falkTX absent.

Everyone has only a fixed amount of time for his projects. FalkTX keeps developing his software and responds to bug reports. Most of us who just use his software cannot do this or contribute patches. But we can help other users in this forum who have handling problems. FalkTX cannot be everywhere.

Btw falkTX is on the KXSStudio Discord channel and I have heard from other sources that he is planning to start an own forum, but as he's also moving to an other country this might take some time.

Anyway.. KXStudio can be used without problems.

Felipe left for his own reasons. If he comes back - fine. If he doesn't - also fine.
People move on, change, and so should we.

I don't want to rely on a project that is so fragile that it can be killed with a debate about a well-intentioned 120px ad on a forum.

I hope he is doing OK personally.

Well, I think we (myself included) should be more careful in making assumptions on why falkTX left. As his break from KXStudio might imply (as well as the posts above), there might be more to it than the logo. I probably should have thought of it before posting...

Sorry to all for resurrecting the thread.
