I've seen it mentioned elsewhere, but don't know anyone who's used it or reviewed it. The examples on the page are OK, but nothing really grabbing for my tastes. I like the layout, though.

You gonna grab it?
Muhahahahahahahahaha!

If it were a hardware synth, I'd consider it but as it stands, no.

Not quite sure I understand the point of making a soft synth multi-timbral. Maybe it's supposed to save memory or CPU.

There's a point when notes/controllers come from external MIDI sources rather than the VST host. In that case you route a whole MIDI-device to a softsynth using output "to all" or whatever equivalent. Halion, kontakt, kompakt and such things function like that too. As far as I'm concerned, all synths should be multi-timbral! If not needed you don't use it, but if you do need it, then it's there. The tracker I use is such an external source, even though the tracker itself runs as a VST in my host.

D16's Phoscysnfcucnncncon or whatever it is (the 303 emulator) works perfectly for whenever I need Acid sounds, D16 stuff is good but it's expensive for what it really is. It's like they imagine themselves to be some sort of boutique VST outlet or something.

Why do they keep making hardware-looking software? Enough already! Why there are so few software makers out there who use common sense, logic and think outside of the box, like Ableton. I want to see more Operator type of interfaces, something that makes sense for a flat surface of a computer screen, not another bloody Arturia style c**p or another Impoposcar. We have ENOUGH clones! This s**t is for VST hoarders.

Thank you :?

You're saying this about a company that *specializes* in making semi-clones of old hardware... essentially, the 'other company' besides Arturia that does so.

I'm saying that about 90% of all VSTi s**t being made.
I have Imposcar which sounds great, BUT the Oscar style interface does not translate well into the world of software at all, programing it is no fun. Or take Ableton's Analog for example and compare it to AAS Ultra Analog... the same synth, but what a difference... i am saying, there are people who need synths and there are people who need toys.

I always liked this free sh-101 emu.

run through some amp models or voxengo boogex and I'm very happy.

I'm with vladimotor...most VST interfaces suck. Some designers seem to waste more time on the GUI than the sound :roll:

I realize knobs use less screen space than sliders but sliders are more intuitive to mouse with IMHO. Ableton's universal look and feel is great, even though it does have lots of knobs.

Oh yeah: why multitimbral? If you're looking for a playable instrument with splits and layers, it's easier to call up one instance rather than multiple instances on multiple tracks. It's really common with sample-based VSTs like Kontakt, Sampletank, etc. where a single instance can be used like a hardware workstation.
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.
