This. Now even Ableton Operator has good filters
And now we're back to square one. Yes, I like using synths with good filters, but, neither Bazille nor Operator are complete replacements for FM8. Operator, in particular, is locked to Live. In any case, that's my solution as well, I just turn to Reaktor. Still there isn't a good choice in Reaktor that has a great interface. I'm fine with FM9 being a Reaktor instrument, in fact, I even prefer that, I just want NI to do the work.
Fall 2017: FM9 and Absynth 6 are now both Reaktor instruments and are included with Komplete 12 along with Kontakt 6 and Reaktor 6.5 which includes significantly enhanced U/I development tools.
If that's what we see, NI can just automatically charge my credit card for the upgrade, I won't even care.
