So far to any major electronic company statments.
Max is not a "Digi rep" or a sales guy.

Well...saying hd is not going away....
maybe is a game of phrasing things.

Of course every hd user expects to stay compatible
with any future development.

My feeling is they will introduce a new species of interface
with built in dsp (similar to eleven rack) which is just strong enough
to drive low latency audio and port the audio engine 64 bit and native.

while a new generation of plugins is getting released RTAS only for a native audio engine.

Not the worst strategy in my book.
I think the current sound industry economics merely can afford "enhancement",
not replacement. Let´s see...

This price range would be total suicide.
Especially in the current economics not even big studios would invest
such an amount into a single DAW.
