Atomic is a very small company with as far as I see only 2 partners (hardware, software) and 1 employee (service). And my guess is, all 3 have other main/full time jobs and work on Atomic only part time, more as a commercial hobby in their spare time which explains the slow progress. They have a very good product but cannot compete with the big commercial corporations on resources i.e. manpower. This shows in the GUI and feature completeness. The platform is lacking on new amps and pedals and on user interface bells and whistles. Examples: looper, drum patterns, touchscreen, global EQ, multiple effect instances, dual amp routing etc. I see Atomic developing in two directions: either opening up the platform for community contributions i.e. open-sourcing it. The question is how many user are qualified to contribute in modeling well-documented classic circuits of amps and pedals and how far the process can get dumbed down to enable such participation. Probably not many and not very far. Another possibility is to open the hardware platform up for other software modellers like S-Gear. These modellers would well complement each other. Other possibilities are to let the company be bought out by a competitor (know how, platform) or shut down all operations via letting the existing legacy products run out without support and without successors. The modelling scene has become very competitive with new chinese entrants (Mooer, NUX) and their cut-throat low priced entry level products. So Atomic is stuck in the valley of death of being neither the cheapest or at least much cheaper than premium offerings (Fractal, Kemper) nor significantly better on tone quality than cheap chinese entry level modellers with IR loaders. It shares the middle segment with Helix (Pod Go) and is competitive on tone quality but not features and breadth. In summary, Atomic is stuck in a very narrow niche of loyal customers but can neither compete on price nor features. I can see it opening either their hardware platform to other commercial modellers or their software to amateur contributors. Otherwise it risks having their niche squeezed further from both ends until it has to shut down all products and development. As a small private business it offers a very interesting case study on the creative destructive forces of capitalism (aka competition in global markets with low barriers to entry) that is exciting to watch and follow. I certainly wish Atomic all the best!
