and to add to that ... most companies that i know who write software (audio
or otherwise) have *at least* as many "QA" (quality assurance aka testing)
staff as they do developers. without exception in the audio world, the
ones i know have *more* QA people than they do developers.
if the creation of software doesn't even generate enough to pay the
developers, there is only one other way the QA work will get done ...
