Gee, this board sucks, I just wrote a longer comment, and when I sent it, the board was down, and back did not work, either. How unprofessional is that, thanks for wasting my time KVR...
It sucks sweaty hairy donkey balls when it does that (not that I would know), but there is a disclaimer here about backing up your post before sending.
They have been doing a quick couple of sneaky upgrades here between posts, and you got caught in the crossfire. But it would be prudent to back anything up, that if you missed it, you would complain about. That's a good measure.
It's pretty much the same for all boards that use this software. It is not bullet proof.
Anyway, never mind all that. Give us the gist...
Glad none of the other boards I am on uses that software
Copying the contents of an entry box before sending, that is so 20th century...
Anyway, the gist, well, I only have Mulab, not the separate Mux. Which is a kind of problem, actually. There doesn't seem to be an upgrade path from Mulab to Mux for those who switch DAW's, but want to continue to use their presets.
I don't like the synth component enough to pay 49 euros for Mux, though. I bought Mulab because of the DAW component, not the synth.
Having said this, I think MuTools stuff is actually pretty cheap, especially since one major version is maintained for quite some time and the developer lives in Belgium, which is not exactly a cheap country. So if I needed all that modular functionality, I would certainly buy it.
Regarding the synth itself, I don't think it is overly intuitive. It is too freakish to understand without the manual. It really is for synth and sound freaks, not so much for normal musicians. When I look at the envelope module for instance, I am confronted with a dozen or so controls, which is too much for me. I am happy with my conventional 4 or 5 controls.
The user interface of the polysynth has been improved quite a bit, but I can hardly read those white on light blue labels anymore. So I no longer use that, either.
Generally speaking, the sound of Mulab/Mux seems geared towards electronic genres and the European/Asian pop sound. Since I am more into the old-skool American sound, I don't like the sound and presets too much. There are quite a lot of presets, but somehow I like hardly any of them. With other synths it does not matter as I don't care about factory presets anyway, but with Mux/Mulab it is different because I would have to base my own patches on factory presets since I never really know which modules to use. That is not Mux's fault, though, I guess Mux and I just don't match
For synth experts it probably is heaven
