These guys are the ones actually making protools now for the most part with a skeleton crew left at what was once Digi to oversee the development. After Avid fired over 300 people from Digidesign and M-Audio, they pawned off the workload to Global Logic in a "strategic" move to save money... A move which has been and will continue to cripple Pro Tools, while offering Avid the financial luxury to purchase Euphonix.

Most likely once Avid takes whatever technology it wants from Euphonix it'll do the same thing to them. CEOs have a funny way of always following the same M.O. eventually, even though the brands/names change...
Got a source for this?

my first source is/was the 5 or 6 friends I've had for the last 7~8 years that worked at Digi and M-Audio. All of which have been laid off in the last year and a half.

For proof... none of you actually checked the "Clients" tab on the Global Logic website did you? What Logo do you see under "telecom", middle row, second up from the bottom?

The layoffs were last fall. Pretty much the same thing I heard from a variety of sources... gearslutz, ex employees etc... New hardware design and testing was sourced to China earlier in the year.

Google Kirk Arnold and get back at us

Actually they started at the end of 2008/beginning of 2009. My first friend from Digi to get laid off was let go about a year ago. The last was let go right before Xmas.

Also... anyone looking to develop audio products for avid, looks like you need to move to Kiev, Ukraine...

It's actually a woman. And if you've ever seen Office Space, she's like "The Bobs".

Her specialties are global consulting and outsourcing and was Vice Chair, CEO and President of Keane Inc before coming to Avid. What does Keane inc do? They are a consulting firm for global outsourcing...

Before that, she was at Fidelity investments... what did she do there, you ask? She was Executive Vice President of Product, Marketing and Strategy for the Human Resources Outsourcing Group, Fidelity's business process outsourcing unit.
