very cheap) you can download Pinnacle bankfiles..."
"Your program is very good, I am prepared
to paying for him"
"Everest is superb! I had a play with it last
night. Its about time someone unleashed the power of the MA Chip
on the Pinnacle. Well done it far superior to Turtle Beach's. I loaded
a wav file into recycle chopped it up and saved them as wavs loaded them
into your drum wizard and Bingo an awesome sample set in a few minutes
and with no sample cutoff problem!! Well done Mark, keep up the excellent
"I think you did a great job with your editor.
I firmly believe that all in the computer/music community should have as
many choices as possible and I would not hesitate to recommend it as an
alternative to the PPE..." (comment from Turtle Beach representative)
"GREAT job on Everest - I'm using it on the
Apex and it really opens up the synth engine. I feel like someone just
gave me a six speed transmission for my Ferrari! Keep up those updates!"
"Everest is a great app !! thanks so much
for writing it and continuing to improve it."
"First of all Your program is GREAT. Excellent
idea really.Much easyer to work with. .... and The Drum Wizard ...No
comment ! "
"I've been messing with the new Everest Alpha,
and it's the bomb."

"I am very close to purchasing an Apex sound
card and would probably be buying your editor as it looks a good deal better
than the one that AVM has just released."
"Firstly... THANK YOU,
THANK YOU, THANK YOU!! The editor is excellent. I'm using it
on the Apex sound card, and your program helps us who, rather than being
sound theorists and technicians, are muscians, and need to be able to mold
our sounds quickly and efficiently. Once again, thank you for providing
the software that enables us to do so. I've had the card since last
summer and have been anxiously awaiting a good program to come along.
Tha AVM editor is just entirely too confusing, in my opinion."
"My wife hates your program" ?!
"Everest is working perfectly for me now;
I'm never going back to PPE."
"Well, everytime I send Marc a message I can't
help first gushing about how exceptional Everest is, and the unprecedented
rate at which updates are released and his interaction and support with
its users, etc... Bravo, Marc!! Cheers! NOW we can create MUSIC."
"The synth editor called PPE from TBeach is
a cruel joke developed by sadistice geeks in white lab coats FOR sadistic
geeks in white lab coats. Fortunately a new editor just came out called
Everest which makes designing key-maps and drum maps a joy instead of a
long trip to HELL. TBeach should bundle Everest with each Pinnacle
and put the bastards that designed PPE up against a wall and open fire!"

The Radium hackers gave me a wonderful
review. I am honored that someone took the time to crack my registration
scheme, the bastards. By the way, I have modified version 1.48 to
automatically detected hacked versions. I won't tell you what the
program will do in the event it discovers a hacked version, but it isn't
pretty. Revenge is a dish best served cold.
