Postby Moe Shinola; Mon Dec 19, 2011 9:53 pm In praise of Cakewalk's PSYN II

I know it's a DX plugin, and only native to Sonar, but it'll play in Orion 8, so I've been messing around with it, along with Dimension Pro & Pentagon 1 which also play in Orion and I must say I just kept right on scrolling through the presets in PSYN II, especially the ones in the F and G banks. I think PSYN II uses white noise better than just about any synth I've heard. Something about the presets which incorporate noise is very pleasing to my ears. Also, the sounds a wide ranging and mostly all interesting. I can't deal with the sound of Pentagon 1(too trebly and piercing - the sound is too big, too much). Dim Pro I like but only because of the DSF Proteus packs I bought which are great(a lot of the factory sounds are out of tune). I'm just having more fun exploring around PSYN than the other 2. Does anyone else like PSYN II?

Is it available to buy or try on it's own? I can only find mention of it inside Project5 and Sonar

I don't think it's for sale on it's own. There's so much great stuff out there for free anymore I hope if Cake offered PSYN it wouldn't be for more than 30 or 40 bucks.

I like psyn but don't use it that much anymore. I kind of stopped when P5 went out the window. If you haven't seen it you should check out the psyntology pdf by Tom Brockway (b rock).

If you didnt know, you can use it in (some*) VST hosts using the polac/xlutop wrapper.

(*) Wont work properly in xlutop Chainer, ironically enough, but will in more modern hosts.
To laymen, software development is something akin to wizardry. Neither time, nor effort are involved. If software is missing features they want, or has bugs, it is solely because someone has been too lazy to wave their magic wand.
