You welcome Dan. BenO also stated that they would release MF 5 in stages due to the complexity with all the different models of mixers. That was also changed with the crazy idea that it's all one product when it's not.
When in doubt KISS

yep,
Ben is most likely in contact on a regular basis with a few friends he made while working at Mackie, and I bet he is really sad about their decision to ditch the DC16.

This DL line was his baby

AFAIK Ben was a survivor and has been with Mackie since Greg's time around 2002 Greg left in 2003. It must have been pretty frustrating to work under a bunch of bean-counters and probably had enough or the offer from Amazon was that good. I don't know if he had any hand in some of the code, he had his masters in the UK in DSP technology. He may also have enticed some of his fellow Mackie friends to go with him.

P.S. You can also look at it another way and say that he didn't finish his pet project and instead killed it. Traditionally Mackie's software department has been a revolving door.

it is sad to me nonetheless.
I did not know that Ben was with them that long.
