Absentia DX's goal is to create time-saving tools for dialog editors and re-recording mixers.
The low-price server licensing model did not generate positive cash flow and that has hampered our ability to further develop new tools.
Additionally, there was a vocal customer segment that wanted us to adopt iLok for licensing.
For these reasons, we adopted the subscription pricing model.
