Software! Also some bad news Overseas
Hey everyone, just wanted to give you an update as it seems there is a great deal of backers that have some questions about the software which wasn't included in the packaging.
We decided to offer it as a free resource, As the Slug will work with any recording software, we wanted show its versatility off.
The download page and instructions were provided in the link below which you should have received when we sent out confirmations of shipment. But for anyone who missed it or we missed, we are extremely sorry. You can view it in the picture below.
Also Here is a link directly to our software download page.
The software is still in an early stage and we are working to release updates to it so we can fix any bugs that arise. The MP3 file format isn't supported in our program yet, but you can still export recordings as MP3's in other programs (we highly recommend Audacity). Our software was developed in Adobe Flex, which many of you know was dismissed by Adobe a couple months ago. Because of this, support for Flex is pretty limited at the moment. We are doing our best to adapt to these changes, and hope to release an initial update to the software within the following weeks.
OK, so here is the part that has been keeping me up the past 2 weeks,
We received our first order of slugs and have shipped all of them out, about 95% of our backers received their order. We were promised delivery of a second shipment by last week and by the time the factory completed the order it was too late, Chinese New year took over, the entire country shut down, and not a single shipping company is open to send us the completed items, So we are at a standstill until Feb 2nd when we our manufacturer starts up again.
So For any backer and those who paid through paypal who didn't receive an update with shipping status it is because we couldn't get inventory by the promised date. We take full responsibility and are deeply ashamed it has taken this long to get everyone their promised orders. We sincerely hope you can take into consideration us being a newly founded startup and the unforeseen troubles that can sometimes accompany that unfortunately. We are determined to make it up to these individuals.
Again we want to show our appreciation to everyone here who helped make this project a reality and the amazing support we have gotten even given a few mishaps on our part.
