Thanks for keeping us informed. I’m sure people are going to be annoyed, but I think it’s safe to assume Elektron are doing the best they can to produce the best version of Overbridge as quickly as possible.
At the same time, these delays are getting increasingly worrying: while I don’t doubt Elektron’s desire to deliver OB or the hard work which is clearly going into it, each of these delays makes me a bit more sceptical about their capacity, and the other assurances we’re being given.
Given we’re now, what, 9 months past the original launch date I’d really like to see a bit more openness and clarity: what’s been holding stuff back? What needs to happen from here, not just in terms of dates but the actual process? I’ve seen Simon mention that Elektron now have enough staff, which sort of suggests there were too few previously: how’s that being managed, and what impact has it had? How much have the various post-Digitakt device launches taken resources away from Overbridge?
I guess talking about these kinds of difficulties isn’t a normal situation, but given the delays and frustration, and the huge and very engaged community here, I think it would be really helpful for Elektron to have more of those conversations with us.
