I know their products can be quality and innovative when they finally hit the stores, however I don't like the fact they introduce product 'ideas' at early conception and make dedicated users wait 1 year or more, or not even follow through at all like the Muse audio interface they advertised a while back. They basically test the waters with paper products before they decide if its a go.

I would not give them one cent of my money. There are many other choices out there for quality professional gear that you can actually buy.

They should concentrate on getting their existing products released before announcing new ones

I hate to be so spiteful, but since day one iConnectivity has jerked around people waiting for their products. Take a look at their facebook page with people just begging. I really hope they go out of business for their lack of appreciation for how to treat (potential) customers.

As a company we take an uncompromising approach to development. We take time to do things right. Our customers have come to expect this from us. Sometimes this takes longer than we hope or expect. Bringing new technology (especially related to mulit-platform connectivity) to market is very challenging. Many times we have been delayed or suffered setbacks due to circumstances out of our control, and other times we were just plain overconfident in our estimations. We have learned a lot along the way, things move a lot faster for us as of late.

We recently posted good news for those who have been waiting. All development of our iConnectMIDI interfaces has been completed and we have moved on to our iConnectAUDIO4+. mio, iConnectMIDI1, and iConnectMIDI2+ are available now. iConnectMIDI4+ is currently being manufactured and will be available as soon as they arrive from the factory.

iConnectAUDIO4+’s core is based off of iConnectMIDI4+’s core architecture. This, coupled with the recent doubling of size of our development team, means that we are able to move much much faster to get this done and to market.

To those of you that are frustrated, we are sorry. It’s been frustrating for us too! We also would like to thank many of you for your support through this process.

I spoke to them about the midi 4+. They said they have had production issues that has created a delay of several months, but sounded confident that it would finally ship in about a month.

@iConnectivity

The process you described is what every single innovative pro audio gear developer (or any other product manufacturer) goes through to get product to market, software and hardware.

Your explanation does not help your reputation.

One takeaway is that iConnectivity is a small, inexperienced company that is still learning how to complete product designs (in Canada) and get them manufactured (in China).

Another takeaway is take everything you see or hear at NAMM with a grain (or mine) of salt until it's actually available.

Even "established" companies promote exciting but largely unobtainable products at NAMM (Korg Volcas? Behringer iStudio? etc..)

Doesn't make the wait any more enjoyable though, and it's not quite as exciting after you've nearly given up hope.

I just hope they've fixed the 14 ms MIDI-to-audio latency.
