It's a really accomplished piece of software. I've been playing with it this evening and haven't run into any bugs or crashes so far. Huge amount of modules - a lovely playground to explore :)

Why would anybody even bother downloading this thing?


Because some of us arent in it solely for the crassly mercenary objective of trying to make a quick buck selling presets?


Has nothing to do with it. Why would you want to download a piece of software that you were warned in advance is going to crash your PC? I have enough computer problems as it is. I don't need more of them.

Bluehell has a sense of humor.. Calling it a 'thing' before you've even investigated it is pretty disrespectful imo - it's a very accomplished piece of work - on Nord Modular level from what I can see.

Has everything to do with it. Not everyone has the same mindset as you. Not everybody whimpers at the prospect of a bit of software not wiping their arse for them. Not everybody pisses their pants at the prospect of a computer crashing. Not everybody reads a warning like that and doesnt read between the lines.


Why would you want to download a piece of software that you were warned in advance is going to crash your PC?


Because everything 'crashes your PC' (woooo, big scary) but not everything makes interesting sounds.

I have enough computer problems as it is. I don't need more of them.


Lets not distract this thread with the lamentable state of your ability to understand a computer system. Your Steam/game posts a while back made that perfectly clear.

Don't you have a sense of humour? It's a joke by the dev. Wren is probably not for you ...

Well, if it's a joke, then yes, I have no sense of humor.

I will download it and see if I can get it to work.

Thank you all for pointing out my inability to understand what people really mean when they say something.

How can I be so stupid?

Just one question. Can somebody tell me if this is 32 or 64 bit? I can't find this information on the site.

Approach it like you found an old bit of insanely heavy hardware with curiously labelled knobs in the back of a charity shop - dust it off, switch it on and and see what happens.. I would guess it's 32 bit.

Its not a plugin, and its not reliant on using lots of sample memory, so why does it matter?

Because I have a 64 bit machine and since I'm an idiot when it comes to this stuff, I don't know if 32 bit apps will run on it. That's why I'm asking.

Any 32 bit program will run on a 64 bit system. It just is that you still have the 4Gb limit ....
