Why chose Soundion? Didn't you realise there's already a DSP company called SoundiRon?

Seems your doing yourself a disservice here! People will confuse the products, e.g. when searching on KVR. :?

If you guys could do a Synthex at U-he/Synapse level quality, I think you'd have a hit. I'd certainly be all over it.

Panther sounds great. :). Is there any chance we would be able to use the LEM echo as a separate effect? Would love to patch a guitar signal into it!

Instrument and effect VST's can't be combined but we could make the LEM a separate effect plug-in. It would have a bigger interface :) Lets first get the Panther tested and released.

We chose Soundion because Apple code signs should be from a company with a Dun & Bradstreet validated number. The Elka, LEM and GEM trademarks are owned by Soundion. So we didn't had much choice.

Usability and GUI-wise, Xils synths do have to catch up with the times, I'd say. Sound-wise they're pretty great, but overall polish of the interface is missing IMHO. Preset browsing is horrible but I read they're working on an improved preset browser. They need to catch up a lot to match up with u-he's new preset browser, tho, which shaped up to be the best one in business. :)

Synthex... *yawn*


Huge Elka fan here.. I have a few of their beasts - neither a Synthex nor a Panther though.

We have one Beta user reporting there is at random no sound when this plug-in is used in Reaper 5.941 32 and 64 bit on Windows 10. If someone else experiences this please let us know because we can't reproduce it yet.

I like this guy, he doesn't give a f**k.
Instead of amping it up, giving you juicy details to make you salivate, he's like "Pfff ... come and get it - IF you can"

Btw, are you guys going to do any other organs, from other manufacturers?
