No way man! I didn't recognise the nick at first, but as soon as I saw "Arguelles" it hit me. He made some of the finest buzzmachines IMO - no shit and straight to the point. It feels so weird to mourn someone's loss when all I've known is his buzzmachines, and I am sure somebody with such a fine creative output must have been an awesome guy to know personally. RIP man.

Never heard of him by name, but anyone who has worked on renoise or buzz deserves my respect.

Lately, i improved & revamped his old nt2 to make it more usable for 64k intros and i was just about to contact him before releasing anything.
That guy was very talented. :(

That's a bummer. I noticed his name in a lot of soundware.

oh :( rest in peace. His NTK was just like a big wonder for me, a tracker with 2 x 303 emulation was surely unique those days.

I think, that people use minute of silence when a person is dead, or something like that. They did not do propaganda for themselves.

Only if you never used his Buzz machines from before NTK. Sure, they were off-pitch and some were incredibly unstable, but I LIKED THEM.

I remember smirking in the metro networks of Madrid when I changed stations at Arguelles *sigh*. Oh well, let's drink our favorite toasting liquid to him.

i just know that Deckadance is a great piece of software!

DAMN! he is the one who brought for example BCD2000 and wiimote support to Deckadance :((

no way, although i'm not a musician but, he was the only guy who has been providing free machines for Buzz that i could use easily...

R.I.P Argüelles :(

Damn. He did a great job with all those pieces of software. I've been liking his stuff since I first started using Buzz. The name Arguru will always stay familiar to me, although I never knew the guy. RIP.

No WAY? I was wondering what he was up to these days :/

A car accident is always awful...
Rest in peace, talentuous Arguru.

Sad news indeed. I wonder why people only mention his buzz machines. He was also the creator of psycle (open-sourced it later on) and aodix, did stuff for smartelectronix, had his own little company selling VSTi plugins and the renoise guys wouldn't be there where they are today without him. RIP.
