You might have heard that Enzien Audio, makers of the Heavy Pure data compiler, are closing shop. You probably also know that we use Heavy to compile Pure data patches for the OWL.
By the end of the month the Heavy website and online compiler are going off line, apparently for good.
But this is not the end of Heavy!
Enzien are generously open sourcing the compiler behind Heavy,
hvcc, which will shortly be published on Github. Meanwhile we are working closely with them to create a new, open, online compiler service that anyone can use. This will provide continuity not only for OWL patch creators but for all Heavy users.
We’re sad to see Martin Roth, Joe White and the rest of the Enzien team disband but grateful to them for the amazing work they’ve done, and know they’ll go on to do even greater things in the future.
