|Author||Topic: Alternative for Hypersonic VST|
Posted: 6th February 2004 14:39
I just registered here and I already have a question.
Does somebody know a good altenative for the hypersonic VSt instrument? I really like it but my computer and soundcard don't like the hypersonic for some unknown reason... (has nothing to do with capability of my computer).
I'm looking for a VST instrument with some sound that are comparable with the Hypersonic.
Please help me out 'caus at this point i'm stuck.
Thanks in advance,
Dirk (the hague, Holland)

well hang on, hypersonic is not a cheap vsti, the firts thing you should do is SEEK SUPPORT from steinberg/wizoo, to GET IT WORKING on your system as it's something you paid for. don't just throw it in the bin. what's the problem, are you having missing sounds or something? or crashes?

My copy has missing notes too! Waaaah!
Back to the topic, however, you can try SampleTank as an alternative. Or, if you have missing notes in Hypersonic, you can always buy it from the store and use a legitimate license!
Options galore, really ...

Hyper Canvas by Roland, but its basically just a large GM bank. And Sampletank2 of course, though its about 20x the disk space and appears to be pretty buggy. Not really very many options in the 'virtual workstation' area.
Like the sound quality or not, Hypersonic is pretty unique in that: huge variety of sounds, small disk footprint, easy tweaking and searching. Hopefully we see more vsti's start to compete in this area in the future.

Wizoo even have a support forum here at K-v-R now, I'm sure they'll get you sorted out.

I'm guessing you're kidding but, in case you're not, could you explain how Energy XT could replace Hypersonic?

sidenote to uncle e...listening to 'scott n dave circa 2....this sounds great!

you're guessing right - what I meant was that
Hypersonic seems to me to make not really so much
sense, because it is a nice thing to have a
hardware-workstation where you have everything
included in one single device, whereas the nice thing
about modern vst hosts is that you can build everything on your own as you prefer in a given
situation. Thus the ' '
- but maybe it's just that I didn't understood the Hypersonic concept.

Missing notes in Hypersonic is caused by using a crack of Hypersonic, or perhaps a crack of Cubase.
Steinberg implemented their copy protection this way.
Dirkyman and stu.macQ, if you have missing notes it's because you're using a crack.

I think stu was just being a smart ass, kevvvvv.
Posted: 7th February 2004 05:58
actually is the way I was reading stu.mac.Q's
reply that he was joking about being suspicious
that Dirkyman is using a crack

you beat me to it Mr. B
Posted: 7th February 2004 06:02
Yup ... missed the emoticon.
Sorry, Stu ... thanx, DB
Posted: 7th February 2004 06:14
hehe. Happens to me plenty.
Posted: 7th February 2004 08:04
oh well you all fucked it up.
i politely asked him in my initial reply if he had stuck notes so then if he said YES< we could all pounce on him as of course that is the signature feature of the crack according to peter gorges.
patience and caution, gentlemen. don't jump so soon. anyway he hasn't posted since then so i think it speaks for itself
Posted: 7th February 2004 09:37
Not seen you use the emoticon before, tt
All the same, a thread that says this crack don't work, so which one shall I pinch next isn't much of a thread IMO (again, apologies if I have this wrong)
But while we're here has anyone actually heard the Hypersonic upgrade modules yet?
Posted: 7th February 2004 09:41
no, i didn't even know they existed. i know very little about hypersonic, only that it's been getting fantastic reviews everywhere i have read so I am really interested in it. i presumt these upgrade modules are extra presets and such?
Posted: 7th February 2004 14:07
okay guys, I must admit you are right about me on some parts... I have a cracked version of the hypersonic, but the strange thing is that i don't have the "typical" cracked software trouble. My problems are that when I'm working on a midi sequence and using hypersonic, after a few minutes my speakers make a zooming noise but cubase just works fine.... I just don't have sound anymore. first i thought it was because of my soundcard ( a shitty audigy2 ZS, regret buying it, but that's another story) but i found out it only does that while using the hypersonic. Also sometimes my entire computer crashes....?!
I also want to react on the reply about not understanding the use of hypersonic when there are a lot of other vst instruments that have the possibility of making your own sounds. That's exactly the reason i like to use the hypersonic. I work a lot with "real" sounds, and they are hard to make yourself, at least I don't get them more beautifull then the sounds on hypersonic plus that I don't want to work with hardware.(I don't even have a midi interface!) Any other thoughts on this subject.
ps. I will try out the vst instruments you told me about, thanks for your help in that!!!

just a quick note on ST2 - it's not buggy at all for me. It's been pretty solid, and has been since I got it (v2.02). It's at 2.03 now and is working like a charm.
Posted: 7th February 2004 14:37
You have cracked software and you wonder why you have issues? Anyway, you'll notice the help will dry up instantly around here when people find out you're a pirate. Actually, admitting you're a pirate with as many developers on here, including the makers of Hypersonic is pretty stupid.

I've played with Hypersonic one nite. If you're interested in completely bog standard, ho-hum sounds that you could have gotten off a PCM synth 10 years ago, then Hypersonic is for you. It's not terrible, but it's certainly far from amazing. I'd rather by a Triton any day over that, least that sounds better. Really, I don't think it's worth the price of admition, esp if you already have PCM synths lying around, which I believe you do, don't you ttoz? Honestly, it reminds me a LOT of my Yamaha W5 that I use as my controller, and haven't used a single sound out of in quite a few years. I suppose if you had nothing, it wouldn't be bad either.

Don't judge me so soon! My moto is try before buy! You think I have the money to buy everything i want to try out? I'm just a student so for me it's trying a cracked version first and if I like it, i'll buy it!
That's why I want to be absolutly sure it has nothing to do with other things except for being cracked software. I would feel pretty fucked if I went out and buy this thing only to find out it has some problems with one of my products at home, that has nothing to do with it being cracked or not.
I hope you guys won't hold this against me.
No disrespect for programmers on this forum!!!
Posted: 7th February 2004 15:08
Well, aside from the sounds, I've really heard no one bitch about Hypersonic at all, including stability. It's your cracked version that's the problem.
Posted: 7th February 2004 15:43
Personally, I think that if a dev doesn't release a demo, its only logical to find some way to 'try before you buy'. Hypersonic is 399 euros! Thats alot of scratch to lay down for something untested.

Nope .. sorry ... this isn't a should-I-shouldn't-I-try cracks forum.
