Dropping things is not always a bad idea. ReBirth was a bad drop IMO, but now i have ABL3 which is good, but still does not sound like a real 303 (and ReBirth didnt either). The rest of your list is not missed 1 second from my side and just consumed too much resources in the past.
Exactly my thoughts.
BTW, no software or hardware is supported forever, Recycle
is still working fine on my system and is for sale in the shop, Recored is fully integrated into Reason (for the better), Allihoopa was an odd idea in the first place (and was dropped by a separate company after it was spun off), and wasn't ReBirth dropped because Roland threatened? Anyway, of all of those, ReWire is the only thing that has actually been dropped (but I'm not going to miss it), but again nothing lasts forever - there are many music software companies that are not even around after 25 years, so at least they've done THAT right!
And FWIW, Reason is the ONLY software I've ever
owned were I can still load files from almost 20 years ago and they play PERFECTLY.
