    Apparently so. They haven't answered emails or phone calls since November. Hopefully someone will buy their design and continue production. The Q10 is a great unit.

    There's a website that was started by a guy that has all of the drivers available in case anyone needs them.

    This is unbelievable. It's such a nice piece of equipment. Aardvark makes great stuff and they've been around for quite a while. You'd think there'd be some sort of notification or something. Not just ............ pooooof, there gone!

    I wonder what other people that need a unit like the Q10 are using? The Q10 sounds great! I just don't get it!

    I think its a shame as well.. I hope either the company reappears somehow or at least the software drivers become public domain so they can be kept up.

    Wow, I've depended on their clock (ha ha michael) for years. They made the best SMPTE to MIDI sync box ever, as well.

    Locked up in less than a second. I guess I have something else to add to my collection of gear that you can't get any more. LOL

    After reading my last post, it appears that I am incapable of proofreading before I post a remark.

    My apologies to all lovers of the English language and it's grammer. I meant neither you nor our language offence...

    Thanks for the link. The belly up Aardvark logo tells it all.
