Thanks for the good words

for $199 (or $99! at a discount, or even less with Komplete) Absynth 5 has "everything and more" that you're still planning to / must implement. I didn't saw that powerfull syngle-cycle tool anywhere. If you catch with Absynth, or if you go beyond it(!), you'll have a winner. Until then, I think it is early to publish the tool.
Well, here's the thing: there actually is not any tool out there currently that does what this one does, even in it's current raw state. Here's why - with all of the tools that are actually available currently, none of them have the combined ability to A) export a custom sized waveform, B) export to various formats and C) run as a VSTi instrument. This combination now reduces the need to use multiple programs to create *proper* single-cycle waveforms. There are actually like 20 or 30 tools out there that can indeed create single-cycle waveforms in WAV format, but none that do everything in one fell swoop.

You sure are correct, but you can't redistribute those without paying license fees. My aim with this is to allow sound designers and library developers to create their own custom waveforms, converted to various formats, in a very short amount of time. For those who are just looking for libraries of waveforms, there are surely many other pre-made libraries already available. Although, I'm surprised that nobody has yet complained about the abundance of duplicates in some of those massive packages. I'd rather have 100 very unique waveforms than 50,000 with most being suspiciously similar.

Thanks a lot for taking the time to write out your thoughts. And BTW, not so long ago I wasn't able to talk to people without ripping them apart for minuscule differences
Heavy medication works wonders, even though I'm a bit of a zombie half of the time now, haha.
