Tonight Avid will make a number of announcements that will further underline their commitment to openness in both music and post production.
As a huge Apple fan-boy, it pains me to say it, that Apple seem to be on completely the opposite path, to a closed propriety prosumer platform.
Which leaves me asking the question 'is there only so much openness to go around?'
Any software developer in the production world, who wants to be taken seriously, needs to make sure that their products allow producers to collaborate with as many other software and hardware options as possible.
Let me just say, I'm glad my money is in Avid gear right now.
