Tempest open source ?

Tempest open source ?

Hi,

Since production is over and development reached an end...
Wouldn't it be possible to give infos on how to adjust the OS by some users ?  :o
I have 0 idea if what i'm saying is crazy impossible for technical / copyright reasons.
But never underestimate what users can archive :p See what's going on with the mutable instruments modules. They became a standard probably because people could create some alternate versions.

Has been discussed way too many times in the past and clearly Sequential doesnít want to unveil the source code..Also Chris Hector (programmer) said that itís way too complicated and probably would create problems.

Yeah as much as I would love to there are multiple chips and a lot of complexity, plus you'd need expensive tools to program it, plus Dave isn't really an 'open source' kinda guy.
