When I did
Virtual Guitarist for Wizoo two years earlier, I had plans to let
Francesco Maisto do the GUI (Graphic User Interface) for
the bass plug-in. I'd seen a his game GoldYard and was delighted,
but as it happened, the graphics for VG were done elsewhere. Now,
in early 2004, it was time to call Francesco again, and in May we

babusjka not only shot and edited the majority of the photographs
used in BROOMSTICKBASS, but also designed publicity material,
the manual, DVD label and the packbox for our virtual instrument.
Musician extrordinaire PoA Sörlin helped
us by doing a lot of quality checking and creating some of the wonderful
demo MP3-s you'll find on this website. The cool cats responsible
for the styles in BROOMSTICKBASS are Nils Erikson,
Johan Axelson, Per Almered, PoA and myself.
Oh yeah, I almost forgot the Product Manager for Broomstick Bass: Per
Almered! Per was the guy with his nose above water at times when the rest of
us were deeply buried in development and work.
I've said it
before and I'll say it again: Had it not been for my wonderfully
talented friends and partners, there certainly would not
have been a BROOMSTICKBASS for you to play around with!
