Your loss. That's an actual picture of the coming softsynth and it's got that D16 accuracy in sound.

Got a taste of it already. Waiting anxiously for the AU final release. Hold on to those paperweights. Somebody has to.

I thgought about getting a 101 but the current 700-1000 dollar price tag turned me off. Especially when I heard of D16 development on this project.

I wish there was a hardware controller for this. Would probably be too expensive though and not practical to produce. Those awesome mock ups on their site make this fact even more painful.

I plan to setup my M3 for this. Multiple maps can be setup for it. I'm also inquiring to Euphonix to see if my MC Mix will configure to the AU version of SHIOITOR.

How about you actually spend some time with one, I can assure you they are no paperweight :thumbright:

But yes the SHIOITOR does look very good, I wouldn't say it'd replace a 101. Because they utilise two completely different technologies, they are bound to sound at least a bit different.

I find MIDI controllers are always a pain when it comes to assigning logical layouts. And then comes the task of somehow remember/labelling your presets for 10 different soft synths.

The Korg Legacy MS20 had the right idea...too bad the keys sucked so much.

I have. A buddy of mine in England has one. They're nice but not remotely worth their current market value IMO. Just more analog hype.

Just like D16's drum machines, Shoioitor is spot on. 8-)

This synth is supposed to have a killer filter, we'll have to wait and see. And if it helps bring the price of the 101 down to about £200 I'd be happy!

I just wish they'd come up with a different name, I mean.... SH101tor, or shioitor or whatever. How do you pronounce it? Shitter?!

so, you're beta testing Raiven? i am really excited about this particular plug - i will buy it as soon as possible - can you give any estimate how long until any kind of release? i mean - early 2010? middle 2010? can you say if it is very CPU hungry?

i find the name totally objectionably as well.. i would rather is was called like XW-010 or just anything pronounceable.. lol.. D16 says it is "shee-ow-ee-tor" btw..

this aways happens. The build up of an analogue emulating plugin. Then it never sounds quite like the hardware-usually too clean and precise and not containing the musical non-linearities or presence of real analogue.

Although it sounds 'close enough' for many. For me - its the small difference that makes the difference. IMO at the typical sample rates we will not get that close to real analogue - in terms of catching the true 'vibe'. Although yes there are some very close.

I'm not beta testing but I know someone who's messing with it. I can only hope it'll be market ready in January. Here's a video to examine.

Then keep your SH-101 and enjoy it. Somebody has to but consumers don't really care if you use real analog or not and all D16 plugs are spot on.

I like the nostalgic appeal of some plug-ins but make sure to accept them for what they are. Maybe you should too or just keep those antiques running. ;)
