You can add my name to those who have given up all hope with Larry's
project. My experience is
1. Sent check for $745 with the promise of 8 weeks delivery time
on May 31, 1999.
2. Numerous emails through 1999 and winter of 2000 indicated that
it was "about to ship".
3. March 12, 2000; Larry said it would ship in a week and it was
time to send in my final payment. I sent him a check for the remaining
4. Throughout the spring and summer, numerous emails as to why it had
not shipped. Responses were generally that it would ship in a few days
or a week. The unit was finally shipped on August 18, 2000.
5. It worked for a few weeks and then failed. It was returned to
Larry on or about September 21, 2000.
6. For the past year and a half, numerous emails indicating that it
was about to be fixed and shipped to me. It still has not been fixed.
Through all of this, I have been very patient since Larry said he was
having some health problems. However, for the past several months,
I have just given up all hope. I'm looking forward to the new Gerety
MIDI system when it is ready.
I was amazed at Larry's email to MMD that things were just about
fixed and that he was ready to begin production again. I would advise
everyone to hold onto their money until those of us that have units in
for repair get our units back and can report that they are working
okay. Don't hold your breath.
And Larry, I second the recommendation that you turn this project over
to someone who has the financial ability and production know-how to
move the project forward. Your design appears to be very interesting
and hopefully, someday it will work. You should be congratulated on
your design work and your perseverance. However, it is time to put the
project on a commercial footing so that your customers are taken care
