Hi @Phil_Flood - my apologies for the late response. Things have been hectic getting production going.
I completely understand your frustration, I share them as well. My guys all told me to stop giving delivery estimates. But I hate leaving people in the dark. All I can do is give updates based on the information I have. The reason we do offer significant discounts off of pre-orders is precisely because with new products there are uncertain delivery dates. This is what we have done in the past, and despite similar delays with past products (BeatBuddy, Mini, Cablis), we have always delivered. And we will deliver the MIDI Maestro as well, I promise.
That being said, I know how much you’re looking forward to the MIDI Maestro, which is why the delays are so frustrating. I’m working my butt off to get it to completion, which is why I am in China right now, and I am not leaving until the Maestros leave with me.
Here are some pics of some units coming off the assembly line:
