I just wanted to take a moment and thank you
for visiting the Storyteller Store and to introduce myself.
My name is Jonathan – the face behind the “Storyteller” name and branding. It is the name will appear on the PayPal checkout, and perhaps a name you may see in other places throughout the composer world and VI community. But what once began as a username for me on the VI-Control forum has now become quite synonymous with my intentions and journey through life. And though the username has carried through to these other aspects of my life, I think it is only fitting that I take a moment to share with you a brief story about the products available in this store.
The products that are available were initially created as a way to improve my own personal workflows or for my own research and enjoyment. The love and care that took place in crafting these “products” was always intended as a way to remove burdens from my personal workflows in creating music so that only joy – and no roadblocks – remained. Though once the full picture arose into view, it was apparent that others could be helped in overcoming these same challenges – for the challenges were not unique to one individual.
After all, isn’t it supposed to be about making music, not figuring out how to make things work in order to make music?
So life was given to the products you see here today – a formality given to personal initiatives that had already been crafted with tremendous care. Overall, we are all here to help grow ourselves and share that which we have learned with others – and the Storyteller Store is just that for me. It can be a new beginning for some, a beautiful change in landscape for others. Either way, it is my hope that the energy placed into the creations of all that you see here will trickle into all that will be created with it.
If you like what you see, please support the continued development of these products (by clicking this link). As an example, in the beginning, OTR was a for-pay product that had a retail price of $129 for the main software. But after recouping investment costs on commercializing the product – and staying true to the Reaper community – I turned OTR into a freeware/name-your-price project. Hopefully, it will remove the burden and help other musicians make music quicker rather than spending so much time setting up their DAW.
I would love to be able to continue to make all of these creations available in a similar manner.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart,
