I may check it out again then. To be honest, this is the first RP offering that hasn't appealed to me at all. Different strokes for different folks I guess.

Did you try the demo or the full product? Some people didn't like the demo but found the full product really good.

My first impression was terrible for some reason. My second impression was much better ... I just bought it off ATS and I absolutely love the full product. :hihi: Bring on the Psy-Trance Bank ... 8)

I downloaded the demo today and installed it. About 10 minutes later, I fired up my DAW to try it, but I already while initializing plug-in, got a message that the demo has expired. Same in both Reaper and Studio One V2. This must have happened between the time I installed the demo and the first time I started the DAW.

How many minutes does the demo version work after you have installed it? Normally you get 14 or even 30 *days* :o

This happened to me too (though i think it was izotope Iris?). It had expired in EnergyXT, but not in Maschine and reaper.

Well I've already "depleted" my trial period in both Studio One and Reaper (32 and 64 bit versions). I'll try VSTHost when I get home today.

Is the full version product validation this cumbersome, too?

No luck in VSTHost either. Even uninstalled and re-installed the plug-in.

I've watched a lot of Youtube videos and almost decided I want this, but it would be good to actually play around with it a bit myself before I decide...

I am going to start programming some patches from scratch today, but I almost don't know where to begin. There is so much flexibility and so many was to modulate the sound that I would be intimidated if technology actually intimidated me. In this case, I am the proverbial kid in a candy shop (or is it bull in a china shop, I'm not sure).

I would appreciate it if someone would tap on my window in about 12 hours and remind me to eat. I am planning on being preoccupied.


Anything specific you could tell us? I am curious and will probably pick up the manual sometime.

What Bank MSB and LSB should i use to change bank in Blade?

Edit: I assigned controllers to both of them on my midi controller and tweaked randomly and i saw no reaction at all in Blade (and yes, i have checked the bank change option :))

Blade should change banks with a midi cc 32. So for instance if you midi cc 32 , followed by 1 , it should load in the second bank (because 0,1 ..)

Hi all,

There is new version of Blade ahead :)
We changed the 'amount' of glow of the letters and all the 'modulation amount' knobs get another led row color. These different led color display better that there are functions inside a part.
Example: Envelope (at the right size of Blade). The 'Envelope' parameters will have blue color led rows and the 'modulation amounts' (addressed to Harmolator and the filter) are having more grayish led rows.

Next to that... new presets!! From artist and new factory patches :D

Cheers,

Rob

Ps. we are nominated with Blade
