Dear developers,

I recently rediscovered my old VST project, I once put *a lot* of time in and, well, found that it was way too much time to throw it away, also since its ideas and possibilities are quite unique. So, to keep you reading, I guess I should provide some demo sounds first:
http://www.floatingbitsaudio.de/EnsoDemo.zip
[edit: sorry for the bad musical quality, these demos were merely made for my own quick documentation rather than for marketing purposes and I'm a abd keyboarder ;-) ]
And a bit of marketing bullshit (on a quite bleak and unfinished, but ambitionied website ;-) ...):
http://www.floatingbitsaudio.de/products/synth/enso

I think my problem was that I wanted to earn money with it, which was admittedly very naive, but now, having put up with the idea of being a "mere" web developer and not earning money with my very own cool audio development, i think it's time to open the project to the world and finish it. Maybe I can find one or two musicians who do some fine stuff with it. That's more important than money.

So, why am I writing this here?

Having read and listened to this stuff again, I really don't want to let the project die completely, who knows what it might be good for. That's why I'm looking for two things:
1. Feedback. How do you like the sounds and ideas? Do you think it might be useful to musicians?
2. if so, is anyone here who might be interested to team up? Unfortunately there is still a some stuff to do to make it a comfortable tool, but maybe someone is convinced of the ideas and willing to help me making it a nice donationware/open source product?

I could tell a lot more interesting stuff about the project, but the post is already quite long... If you have any questions, or are just generally interested in the synth itself, write me a PM.

Cheers
Sören

Oh, since I was asked if it might not get more attention if linked as an actual plugin. Here they are:

I'll look for the newest WIN version and upload it in a minute (Didn't touch it since 2010)

Cool, I'm downloading it now. Not sure what it does, but I'll get a haircut first to make sure I run light.

It's really good, a lot of unique features. I'd find a way to make the gui more like 2 mb, rather than 50.

:) Thanks, I'm glad you like it.

Well, concerning the GUI, I think in this case it's really not the *size* that matters ;)

I'd rather need a designer and a bit of time to let it look at least, well, clean enough not to get eye cancer...

But thanks again, I really appreciate all feedback, but the better the more of course ;)

As I had pm'd you about the original version, I was pleased to see you that you put an updated version up as the old one was glitchy in FLStudio.

Well, this updated plugin loads only as an effect in FLStudio plugin wrapper and so midi triggered and is still very buggy - particularly when changing presets.
Changing presets using the FLStudio wrapper leads to GUI problems and crashes while Enso preset changing method freezes the GUI, and mostly the GUI update doesn't work.

So I tried the savihost standalone and it works ok but I just don't use standalones.

But wait, all is not lost !

Just as I had had enough of it........
I found that the plugin loads in Image-Lines MIniHost Modular Beta (as an instrument) in FLStudio and appears to work very well. No GUI problems ! No freezing !

Hey!

Thanks for your Feedback.

I tried to test it in one host or another, but of course couldn't check all of them.
I used Reaper and Cubase LE and some free ones.

After all, this is one of the things I'll be working on. I guess I should think of a kind of bug reporting system. I don't know if this thread is the right place.... What do you think?

Cheers
