How it started

Post by zerosum » Fri Nov 06, 2020 9:57 pm

What was the last thing the drummer said to his band?
“I got a great idea for a song”

Great, go start your own band.

What was the last thing the builder said to the instrument company?
“I got a great idea for a module!”
“I also got an idea that would improve the quality of the product”

Great, go start your own company.

I have been a hired gun behind the curtain for quite a few musical instrument companies
for a little over 10 years now.
I love it but I am capable of doing more than what people want to use me for.

I have seen the position that I always wanted at other companies so I know that it exists,
but the only way to do more than what I have been doing for the others
is to do it under my own “company” name.

I regret most of what I have released and done under the Zerosum Inertia name.
Every module has a backstory that I may get around to documenting one day.
Each module was done with the intention of selling enough to get away and out of that situation.
It took 4 years to get out.

I have a few prototypes that never made it out of “prototype” phase and into “successful product” phase. If you don’t know what that feeling is like then you have never made your own module.

If anyone is listening out there,
I got a great idea for a module and I got a great idea for a song.

I can relate. Nearly have myself unstuck from shrinking list of catch-22s....
