Whither elastic~?

July 29, 2012 | 11:13 am

hi,

does anyone know what’s happened to the guys behind the elastic~ objects? Sites and email addresses seem to be dead or unattended.

Or if you’re here guys – is elastic~ going to be updated to work with Max6?

Has anyone come across a time stretcher/pitch shifter that’s as smooth as elasticx~ (is/was)?

thanks

David :-(

This website seems up and running:

http://www.elasticmax.co.uk/

Yes, the website is on, but no-one’s home. I tried emailing them via the addresses there first, but no reply after several weeks. Then I looked for direct email addresses – one doesn’t work, the other doesn’t exist. Sigh. Perhaps it’s defunct, which would be very sad.

Timo Rozendal grainstretch~ is a good alternative :

Thanks Mathieu,

I’ll check that out in the morning.

Hey David, I am using elasticx~ with Max 6 and it is working great.

The PayPal payment goes to joe@joejarlett.co.uk – have you tried that address?

I discovered this product early this morning and bought it. I ran into a few problems (turned out that the example for elasticx was wrong) and after sending a few emails, I did get a response from Joe so they are definitely there. He did say that porting to Max 6 is low priority. I don’t know what it means to port it if others are reporting it already works.

@dan – that’s the address I tried – it bounced back.
But it looks like dhjdhjdhj managed to get through, and that’s answered my original question. Still waiting on my new hard drive, but as soon as I get it installed 8′m going to do a clean install of everything and try elastic out again. And also look at grainstretch~ and free_elastic – it’s good to have options, and different sounds.

Thanks for the comments everyone.
