Well considering this actually might be news worthy in certain circles I made a press release :)
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
AARDVARK SUPPORT GROUP GOES LIVE - ASG.HOPTO.ORG
New Albany, Ohio December 22, 2004 - Noticing that Aardvark, the makers of the Direct Pro Q10, low jitter word clocks, and other professional audio devices seems to have disappeared, users have been emailing drivers between each other. Seeking to stop the insanity, The Aardvark Support Group was created by Sam Javor to host drivers and other Aardvark related material so other customers can support their own cards. Hosting the website on a home web-server accessible through asg.hopto.org The Aardvark Support Group hopes to allow users to not suffer from lack of access to necessary information and drivers to operate their equipment.
Beginning as early as NAMM 2004 Aardvark customers knew something was up, but what went down was the nightmare of every owner of non-GPL equipment... the Manufacturer disappeared. One by one the aardvark websites went off line and by December the customers seeking drivers felt left out in the cold.
The Digifreq.com message board found itself home to what turned into a driver emailing thread. Sam Javor, a Q10 owner, noticed the demise of Aardvark and the venerable driver sharing between aardvark users. Knowing that he was getting his home web-server going anyway for another project he decided to start a website to host the drivers so people would have some place to goto to get what they need when they need it. Lets be honest, the possibility of having to cancel a recording gig because you can not find drivers for your $999 sound card is not a pleasant thought.
Asg.hopto.org is a new site and still well in its infancy. A FAQ, a Knowledge Base, and additional product information will be added as it is found. Currently Setup713.exe is available and supports PC versions of the companies most popular cards. Users in possession of other drivers and legacy drivers are encouraged to contact Sam Javor so they can be made available to the public again.
The aardvark Support Group is not actively pursuing the GPL release of Aardvark Drivers however it strongly supports such endeavors.
For additional information, goto: asg.hopto.org
The Aardvark Support Group is a website administered by Sam Javor with the intention of making Aardvark support materials available to customers. Sam Javor has never been an employee or authorized representative of Aardvark. He is however the owner of a Q10.
