This news came via the Studio 16 mailing list.
I have some sad news.
Ben Fuller, an early Amiga developer who worked on several high-
profile Amiga programs, passed away last Wednesday (September 11th,
Ben was a core contributor to Studio 16, the audio software for
SunRise Industries' hardware and the SoundSwitch audio switcher for
the Toaster, but he also wrote Project D (disk copier) worked on
Final Copy (word processing) and contributed to at least a few other products out there (Who Framed Rodger Rabbit? comes to mind).
He also was a key developer for several groundbreaking non-Amiga
products, notably Macromedia Dreamweaver, and ReplayTV (TiVo-like
hard disk recorder).
Ben was an incredible developer who really loved the Amiga, and
Windows (hey, you can love both) and the quality of the products he
produced is a tribute to his incredible vision and dedication.
We'll miss him.

|I'm saddened to hear this. I have never met him personally but seen and used so many his works during years.|
I was active user of Sunrise DSP cards on those earlier days, really first clss product both hardware and software. And Dreamweaver, one of my faw tools all the time, excellent tool that help you do work but does not mess it up.
